Three wiley sheep are fed up with their lot on the farm and have a brilliant idea, "Why not steal the farmer's stash of cash and make like bandits?". It's a hair-brain scheme that gets Sally, Knukkles and Big Jim locked up, but they're not having a bar of it and you'll have to help them escape in Farm Break by Sheep Factory and Mindstorm Studios.

In a way, Farm Break is another take on the Lost Vikings style of puzzle platforming, giving you individual control over three sheep that each pack a unique feature to help solve the 25 currently available physics-based puzzles. Sally is the strongest, capable of carrying all three and pushing large objects out of the way; Knukkles is a high-jump champion; and Big Jim can squeeze through small gaps. By cleverly combining these attributes you'll be able to conquer some extremely clever levels and more often than not you'll need to think a little sideways to get the job done.

From the light-hearted jewel-heist soundtrack to the loveably hand-crafted digital artwork, Farm Break is a joy to play. The physics can take some time to adjust to, but once you've got the feel of it you'll be on your way to victory in no time.

The magic of Farm Break is in its clever mix of levels that require some seriously ingenious methods to solve. With any luck, more levels will be on the way, but for now this is a short, but amazingly fun puzzle title that can be enjoyed by all puzzle fans.
