Play as two sheep solving puzzles and trying to uncover the mystery of a fatal illness.

Navigate through a series of increasingly difficult levels. Open gates, chop trees and jump chasms as you try and collect enough flowers to save your poor sheepy friends. Keep in mind, while the tools you find laying around in each level are shared between the two sheep and gates will only stay open while a sheep sits on them, so co-operation is key!

The primary objective of each level is to make it to the slightly greener grass. Open gates by standing on their colour matched pad. Keep in mind that the gate will only stay open while your sheep is standing on it.


Gregory, how did you end up in that pen!? Move around the game using
WSAD
and, when you've navigated the first sheep to the pad, you can switch the sheep under your control by pressing
N
.
Oh no! Gregory sheep is trapped in a pen!

Oh no, it looks like Gregory is too light to push down the yellow pad! But what is this? Could that be a horribly drawn dumbbell on the ground? Only one way to find out! Go for it Gregory!
Your sheep need to work together to get to the slightly brighter green grass!

Who knew sheep were so good at jumping over chasms and chopping trees! Press
space
when next to a chasm to jump, or next to a tree to chop it down.
You will need to pick up the feather and axe to chop and jump

Gregory has not been sounding too healthy since he became a sheep. Make sure to collect as many flowers as you can! Who knows they may just be what are needed to save his little sheepy life!
You will find up to 6 flowers in each level
