"The graphics style is a lovely cartoony steampunk world, and the sheep are particularly delightful - which makes it all the more distressing when they get squished by a giant metal mallet, but that's all part of the fun." - Strategyinformer.com
For over twenty years sheep have been an integral part of the worms’ fearsome arsenal. Held for years within the evil thrall of their diabolical masters the sheep are finally making a dash for freedom! Escaping the tyrannical worms, the flock must dodge its way past all manner of lethal machinery and traps as the sheep negotiate their path through the confinement of the Worms’ weapons factory out into the testing grounds and ever onwards towards pastures green.
Flockers is a modern day take on the classic A to B puzzle genre with a generous helping of sinister foreboding and dark humour for good measure. Levels have been designed to challenge the player’s skill and strategic planning as they attempt to guide their flock past heinous traps, sadistic devices and diabolical puzzles; rewarding those that can save the most sheep while still allowing progression for anyone who falls foul of the factory’s deadly machinery.

It's like Lemmings (those of you who are old enough will understand) and it is a greater contemporary clone. After some introduction levels it gets really challenging and demanding, so you better bring some time to figure out the solution. I did not make it that far but maybe I overlooked a part in the game mechanics or I'm just not patient enough. If you knew and loved Lemmings (or Lemmings Revolution in the post-DOS era) this might be something for you.
Let's get the comparison out of the way: Yes this looks like Lemmings, yes this plays like Lemmings but this is not Lemmings: This is Flockers and unlike Lemmings, there is a lot more ways to accidentally kill the sheep you have been given the task of saving. One wrong move and you could see your flock get killed by a sawblade of squished by a weight. Whilst you could take the simple option for each level and save the minimum amount needed to complete the level. The real challenge is trying to get 3 stars on each level, which is in itself not an easy task. And you also have to collect the golden fleece hidden in the levels as well. If you liked Lemmings and have been wanting to play a game like it, Flockers is the game for you. It is in early arrival service so it will crash on you from time to time. But they are constantly updating the game and listening to the community about the game which is good as that shows they are hands on and want this to be a success
When I was a little boy I totally loved the idea of Lemmings, where you had to lead the pack of the stupid creatures through dangerous areas. Funny, how almost no developers made anything similar since then, apart from Mousecraft, which used some ideas from Lemming series, but the core was different. Flockers on the other hand is like a new version of Lemmings with almost the same gameplay, but totally new audio/video. Also, you are the leader of sheeps that you know from Worms series! So, your job is getting the cute, adorable animals to safety, using various tools and bricks. It is surprisingly charming and addictive. Flockers are great for players who want to have fun from games, without focusing on storyline, or serious themes. Definitely worth to play!
