Review: Sheepland

31 Oct 2013 0

The setup on the iPad is pleasantly spacious, much like a large island devoted to herding only nineteen sheep.
Sheepland has a casual-friendly art style, relatively simple rules which offer multiple viable strategies, plays fast, and it's sold at a single price, with no in-app purchases.

Artemis was the goddess of wilderness, childbirth and P-P-P-POWER SLAMZ.
Wrestling "entertainment"--as opposed to actual wrestling sport--has been described as the modern equivalent of ancient Rome's panem et circense. Bread and circuses to please and distract the masses from a possibly-horse-coupled emperor.

Your time is gonna come.
Empire is billed as a Civilization-style 4X game, but that's a bit misleading. Civ is a big arena-filling pyrotechnics-and-smoke-machines show that's grown more decadent with each passing year.

Tank. Tank... Tank go here. Tank good.
Hey, dude, you ever think about how, like, weird real time strategy is? Like, just what is "real" "time" anyway, man? Kinda assumes that all "real" time is the same and, maybe this just me being an "agitator," but...
