Sheep were bred at record rates in the early 60′s after a direct relationship was realized between getting a good night sleep and the amount of sheep in the world.

With the ability to count sheep into the thousands people were getting more sleep then they could ever dream of. So many sheep were bred and bred strong. Many sheep had to survive in the desert, winter tundra, and even on the moon (with space helmets of course). Basically anywhere there was room, sheep were bred.

Unfortunately this has gotten out of control and there is now an over abundance of sheep around the world, endangering productivity and has provided a surplus of warm wool sweaters.

To help fight this epidemic of Sheep, Monsters have been released into the wild to reduce the sheep population in a last ditch effort by local secret organizations. Of course monsters need to eat sheep to stay awake themselves.

Though some evil sheep wranglers from around the world, which have benefited from the over population, are determined to stop the monsters from eating the sheep.

Being the monster and productivity lover that you are… it is your job to feed your monster sheep to keep it awake to save the world!
Fail to feed your monster the sheep and your cuddly monster friend will fall asleep, stay asleep too long and a wrangler will drag him away; continuing the sale of their wool as sweaters.

The road will be tough as sheep like to eat their food in obtrusive spaces, and each level the wrangler works to make more complicated sheep ranges to stop the monster from eating them all up. In turn destroying the wool empire the wrangle has set up for himself.

Are you guys going to make this for Android?

We sure hope so.. We are limited to the initial release to iOS first due to our hardware and license restrictions. Though if the game does well then we will be looking to release it certainly on Android!

Am I able to transfer in-app purchases between my iOS devices?

Consumable purchases of wool are not transferable between iOS devices. Though if you have purchased the Patrick Monster for 99cents, when attempting to download the Patrick monster on an additional device you will not be charged twice if using the same Apple account.

How can I support you guys?

Eat Sheep is a side project of ours and any support you can offer is fantastic! Play the game, share with friends and have fun!

What type of game is this?

We are categorizing it as a top down puzzle game. But the common answer is that you will be presented with a top down 3D view of the world with 2D HUD elements. Sheep will enter the word and try to get to the barn. Your job as the monster is to eat the sheep before they get there by navigation the level puzzle, using power-ups and obstacles to slow down the sheep.

This game seems hard! Any tips or advice to play?

We are working on a game play guide, but in the mean time be sure to read through the tutorial screens in the application. Some quick tips are though, don’t be too greedy and let the sheep come to you. Try to upgrade your monster when you can to improve their abilities!

When are the other monsters going to be released?

We are hoping to release other monsters soon depending on how the first version of the game is received. This may or may not include additional worlds as well.

How much does the game cost?

The game is free to play with in-app purchases. You earn wool (game currency) throughout the game to upgrade your monster, purchase cookies for monster special moves, and unlock monsters.

My Monster got stuck!

For some unknown reason the monster may lose mobility in game. This is an issue we are investigating. Though to solve this issue, simply hit pause and replay that affected level.

I have a problem with the game, what should I do?

First restart the game and clear it from the devices memory. If this does not solve the problem please contact us through support@cgcookie.com. Please provide as much information as possible: Device Type, Operating system and description of the issue.
