There's 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!).

    Recently on Friday of this week Super Smash Bros for Wii U has been released. If you thought broken game releases on the PS4 and Xbox one were cool. You don't know what your missing from Smash Bros on the Wii U. For starters it's 60 frames per second and runs in 1080p. That's a plus when you look at recent popular games like Call Of Duty Advance Warefare (PS4) which runs at 1080p and the frame rate drops down dramatically on campaign. But those frame rates and graphics resolutions aren't holding the game from show casing over 40 fighters to chose from.
