SHEEP RAIDERReviewed By: Scott Ward
VOLUNTEER GUEST REVIEWER
Well, now there's a game based on it. You're Ralph Wolf and you've been invited to participate in a game show (hosted by Daffy Duck) called Sheep, Dog, and Wolf. Your job is to visit fields and steal sheep. That's half of it. After you've moved the sheep out of the fold, you've got to get it to your target.
Using the whole arsenal of classic Looney Tunes gags, Sheep Raider is one of the best Looney Tunes games I've ever seen. The puzzles for accomplishing your goal are challenging and require both logical and cartoon thought. Don't worry. Daffy, Porky, and company are there to help you learn.
From a Christian moral standpoint, there are minor problems with this game. First and foremost is the fact that you're trying to steal sheep. It would probably be a good idea to explain to kids that this is a game like tag or hide and seek, and minimalize the stealing aspect. The only other issue is the classic Looney Tunes violence (TNT, getting “bonked” by the dog, getting eaten by a cartoon shark, etc.). If your kids don't mind the cartoons, they shouldn't mind here.
All in all, this is a surprisingly enjoyable and complex game, fun for kids and adults. It's also inexpensive for a new release. I encourage you to check it out!
