Critic Reviews for Sheepo
Sheepo shows a ton of potential and executes rather well. The two brothers who worked on this game should be proud of what they created. While the map and controls need a little more streamlining, Sheepo offers up a cool, passive option to the Metroidvania formula.
Sheepo not only meets the minimum requirements expected for a metroidvania, but it is also creative in terms of plot, gameplay solutions and aesthetic elaboration. The level design lacks some pacing tricks and the controls require fine tuning, but none of that detracts from the fact that this is a charming, balanced and a very fun game.

Sheepo is a charming game, although its lack of variety in environments means it might outstay its welcome as the end draws near. Its gameplay is enjoyable and easy to pick up, however, and the fact there’s no combat makes this a great starting point for anyone new to the Medtroidvania genre. If you’re looking for a quirky adventure, Sheepo is worth picking up, but just don’t expect too much substance.
Sheepo never gets boring throughout its three-hour run time. It was correctly paced and had some delightful moments, both in narrative and tone as well as platforming puzzles. While it does try to change some things up from its competitors, nothing it does is better than other games in the genre. This isn't bad though and fans of 'Metroidvanias' are in for an enjoyable time as it manages to scratch the itch for a 2D open-world platformer, even if it's only for a couple of hours.
Overall, Sheepo is an enjoyable, under-the-radar addition to the Metroidvania genre. While some puzzle aspects and bosses can become predictable, the game is well executed in design and is quite a quirky adventure from top to bottom. So take an adventurous leap alongside Sheepo!
