Sheep Are in Trouble and They Need Your Help [App Review]

Divide-by-Sheep-iconOur good friends over at tinyBuild just released a game we’re excited for you to get your hands on. iOS Etc has kept up with Divide by Sheep during its infancy stages through beta testing. This clever math puzzler is finally ready for you to enjoy in the App Store.

The Grim Reaper is always up to no good and the story remains the same in Divide by Sheep. In a twisted way to make new friends, the Grim Reaper unleashes a great flood to drag the sheep under where he can finally interact with them. It’s a dark way to meet people, but a man with his reputation will do whatever it takes to find some friends.

Your job is to save the furry, cute, and lovable sheep in this beautiful world. Use your addition and subtraction skills by any means possible to safely direct them to waiting life boats. Levels quickly escalate in complexity challenging your most basic of math skills.

Did we mention there’s some dark humor associated with Divide by Sheep? Well, if we didn’t let’s talk about it now.Dividy-By-Sheep-Screenshot

You’re going to lose a few sheep throughout the game, so be prepared you can’t save them all. If the Grim Reaper wasn’t a big enough obstacle you’re trying to protect sheep from, you’ll find hungry wolves find their way on your game board. A few sheep will be gobbled up, but it’s to your—and the wolves—advantage. Remember, you must add and subtract by any means possible.

Don’t worry, this will all make sense and crack you up at the same time once you start playing.

Eventually you’ll discover sheep are literally divided in half and then taped back together on the lifeboats as they’re whisked away to safety. The introduction of different obstacles always keep you guessing and challenging bot your planning and critical thinking skills.

If you’re looking for a dark and clever math puzzle game sprinkled with some dark humor, you won’t find it anywhere else unless you download Divide by Sheep!! We’ve had our eyes on this game since we first got a glimpse of it months ago. It’s challenging and highly entertaining. tinyBuild took their time to get it all right and it shows.

5 Stars (5 / 5) An amazing dark math puzzler that’ll change the way you count sheep—forever!
