break for it and players must do their best not to be outfoxed by
clucking chickens, springy sheep and balky bovines. The highly addictive
game, dubbed "the next Angry Birds" by TouchGen, features unique
finger-touch physics that take herding skills and fowl play to new

spreading their own brand of chicken pox. When the herdin' gets too
tough, the Super Lasso, Big Bopper and Harvest Moon can be unleashed to
level the playing field. Additionally, players can connect to Game
