Flock :: PC, PS3, and Xbox 360 Game Review

Theres a cool new puzzle game called Flock, in which you do nothing but herd animals... from a UFO! Using your tractor beam, booster rockets, and tons of other stuff , you have to collect animals for your alien race.

Capcom, the makers of Street Fighter IV, have released a really original and cool puzzle game called Flock, in which you do nothing but herd animals... from a UFO! Using your tractor beam, booster rockets, and various boulders and gates and whatever's on the ground, you have to collect animals for your alien race.

Puzzling but Action-y

So, Flock is mostly a puzzle game. You have to figure out how best to herd sheep and other animals past a bunch of obstacles and collect enough to beat the level. However, you are being timed, and you directly control your UFO as you try to herd the animals, so it also has an action element. In fact, if you're making your own levels in the game's level editor, you can make them even more action-oriented. I even made a pinball level where a rolling pig was the ball! If you like puzzle games, this one will make you think, and if you just like the idea of controlling an alien fleet (who doesn't?) then this should be pretty fun for you, too.

Funny and Awesome

There are all kinds of cool little details that make this game awesome. There are female sheep that will attract male sheep and usually make your job easier, making the sheep into an orderly line instead of a haphazard flock. However, if that female sheep falls down a pit, the other sheep will all start crying and not react to you for a moment. Chickens will glide to the ground if you push them off of a cliff, which can seriously help you skip some of the windier levels. Bulls will get annoyed when you push them around, and might stampede, knocking down any gates in their path. Everything is accounted for, and the details like this really make things cool.


The Graphics Are Maxed Out

I've never seen such an awesome-looking puzzle game in my life. Especially if you play on one of the consoles or if you have a great gaming PC, this game is shiny and great to look at. From the reflective water (with little fish swimming through it every now and then) to the alien ships themselves, the graphics show some real polish. The music isn't half-bad either, though there are basically only two songs. The two of them are just enough to not get too repetitive, and after all, Tetris only had one song originally, but it was more than good enough to last anyone through hours and hours of gameplay. For a game with this low a price, there is plenty of polish and more than enough gameplay (especially if you make your own levels or download those that other people made!).

    Everyone knows that music can be very powerful. Well in this case, it is very much true. In the most secure place of all, a realm that is meant to only contain one super powerful item, is a mystic music box . Whoever opens it is immediately affected by the powerful mist it dispenses as the music plays. The mist makes anyone who it affects to have dark powers and influences the mind to make terrible decisions all in the name of evil. But you can't just go in and cure them. No, if you were to try, you'd end up dead before you can say "chocolate chip". Not only does the music box make its victim absolutely evil, but also allows the person to only bleed in the form of tears . Therefore, you have to cause something pretty serious in order for them to bleed tears. But that is only to defeat them by blood loss. But to really get them rid of the evil mist that the music box affected them with, you have to use a magical pen that summons rainbow tie-dye shirts. It may not seem competent at first, but to defeat evil, you have use the ultimate force of happiness and purity. And we all know that rainbow tie-dye shirts are just that. Therefore, you need to use the magical pen to defeat the evil. Stars Meme Bifrost (as in the Rainbow Bridge) Unicorns
