[Not saving enough livestock? Then check out our Divide By Sheep tips and tricks guide.]
Mathematics shouldn’t be as fun as Divide By Sheep makes it. Your job is to rescue sheep from the Grim Reaper by flinging them from island to island, eventually depositing them on a transport to safety.
The catch is that only a set number of sheep can go on any one transport. Put too few on and the boat goes nowhere, put too many on and you miss out on a star. The sheep only divide up if you fling them onto a platform with too few spaces for them, and that’s what you’re going to be doing a lot. Sacrificing a few sheep for the greater good is everything here, and it only gets nastier.
As you progress, lasers are required to split the sheep up, literally. And it turns out you can piece them back together again in a gory take on fractions.
It’s all a rather strange concept but it works. It’s simple to learn but offers enough tricks and twists to keep you interested. A plentiful supply of levels means you’ll be keen to keep playing Divide By Sheep.
