  • Summary: FLOCK! uses a sophisticated physics engine that drives the challenging puzzle elements of the game. Whether it's using the Tractor beam to move obstacles out of the way, or the Depressor beam to stamp out crop circles to guide your herds, being an extraterrestrial has never been this addictive. Friends can also join in through co-op play. And when all the levels have been completed, users can make their own with the level editor that comes with the game. Flock comes packed with so much content, the potential fun is out of this world! Over 50 levels of pastoral puzzle challenges. Explore levels to find secret collectables and upgrades. Level Editor allows players to make their own "plushie" and puzzle-filled levels and share them with their friends online. Two-player local co-op mode makes the "flocking" exponentially fun. Compelling environments complemented by a whimsical art style, beautiful lighting and distinctive textures make this one of the most graphically-advanced downloadable titles to date. Real-world physics engine creates all new types of puzzles: pick up wooden planks to form bridges, move items to create obstructions, crush wheat into pathways. [Capcom] Collapse

  1. Flock! has a few quirks that some players may not fully appreciate, but this is the type of high-caliber title we'd like to see more of on PC.
  2. This game is good. It had a lot of potential and succeeded on a few fronts.
  3. Flock! is a game with an endearing presentation but it's sadly followed by incredibly weak execution in the core gameplay, especially in the offering of campaign levels.
  4. Counting sheep may send you to sleep, but abducting sheep is much more exciting. Playing an alien, you need to abduct animals like sheep, cows, chickens or pigs while avoiding obstacles or hungry wolves. There are 50 levels and a simple editor to create your own ones.
  5. Don’t look for great accomplishments and fresh ideas in Flock!. It’s foolish to expect something revolutionary from critters that gave rise to the word “mutton-head”.
  6. The puzzles are mediocre, the controls are too sluggish, the animal behaviour too abstract and the humour either non-existent or gratifyingly dad-like. [June 2009, p.101]

    The music is highly addictive and brought a smile on the faces of all in the room when we tried it ! The game is fun, with car-tony graphics, engaging, a perfect way to relax but still stay sharp, a way to make you feel better. Expand
