Like a stripped back version of Worms, Flockers makes the most of its connections to Team 17's beloved series to deliver a complicated and occasionally messy action puzzler that sits perfectly on smartphones and tablets.
Without flashing PETA’s save-the-bat signal, it’s hard not to chuckle as a flock of sheep faces the spinning jaws of slaughter-by-sawblade. The animations are charming, the backdrops are pretty and there’s a clever - albeit slightly aggravating - design to its sprawling, puzzle-centric stages.
Much like the recent MouseCraft, which at least had a Tetris twist, Flockers struggles to move out of the shadow cast by Lemmings' brilliantly pure concept. While that adherence to a classic template yields considerable amusement, over time the features that should have lifted it higher start to become frustrating.
