Thanks to Jeff Minter, the App Store isn't shy of a sheep game or two. But Sticky Sheep is possibly the first ruminant-inspired title to bash together pinball, mini-golf, and billiards.
Playing as helmeted canine Baxter, your goal is to roll up and ricochet around each stage, nudging a set number of sheep onto a bullseye target. Its familiar control setup lets you easily adjust Baxter's speed and trajectory, so all you need to worry about is the increasingly obtuse layout of the pens.
As the game progresses, Sticky Sheep slings everything from bumpers to bombs into the fray, with collectable coins affecting your per-level rating and an additional time-based Arcade mode to uncover.
A gently entertaining distraction that’s sadly lacking in thrills and creative spark
