Have You Herd Herd Herd? The Animals Have Escaped – iPad App Review

Herd, Herd, Herd Deluxe is a time relay arcade game with a farmhouse theme. Round up those feathered freeloaders to earn stars and keep your animals from getting away. Farmer Jed’s hens have escaped from their coop and your job is to make sure they don’t make it to the other side of the street, if you’ll excuse the pun.

Players are tasked with the mission of getting various livestock back into their perspective pens by tapping the screen to get ‘em moving. To kick start the animals, tap the screen directly behind one. It will give them a spook and send them forward. To keep them moving, drag your finger across the screen behind the livestock and they will boot scoot their way to the pen. The animals don’t exactly move in a straight line, so you’ll have to keep track of them and adjust your taps along the way.
