In this modern era of mobile and social gaming, it would be difficult to find someone who hasn’t at least heard of Angry Birds and the phenomenal success that comes to everything that brand name touches. With such a popular franchise, it’s not uncommon for copy-cat apps to try and gain a piece of that glory for themselves. Such is the case with Grumpy Goats on Facebook, an Angry Birds clone that pits goats against sheep down on the barnyard.
It’s sheep-sheering season on the farm, and the goats are finding enjoyment in making fun of the newly “naked” sheep. The sheep don’t take too kindly to this, and set off to sheer a few goats of their own. Seeking revenge, the goats dig out cannons to fire themselves at arrangements of wood, stone and other obstacles, with the sheep barricaded within. Through this level-based format, you’ll fire goats at the sheep, just as you would fire birds at the green pigs of Angry Birds.
You’ll have a limited number of goats to fire on each level, and will be given a score and star rating at the end of each level. There are dozens of levels to complete in all, but the gameplay itself doesn’t really bring anything new or interesting to the genre. In fact, Grumpy Goats comes with a few technical problems of its own. For one, you’ll have a very short aiming trajectory with which to predict where your shot will land, making accuracy difficult, and the cannon’s motion sensitivity means that you’ll have to frequently reposition your cannon as you accidentally drag too far to the top or bottom of the screen.
