My most ambitious API project yet. EVERYTHING is 'drawn' with Actionscript - nothing in the library, 3258 lines of code, an online scoreboard, and three variations on the game, for under 20 KB.
• Sheep - Play as Elvis' dog Shep, the ovine saviour.
• Burn In Hell - Fekmidog is a demon on a mission to singe some souls.
• Skydrive - Protect London from hanggliding terrorists.

Arrow keys or WASD

The score you get for herding a sheep (/lost soul/hangglider) into the portal is based on the number of seconds remaining. The more seconds left, the higher the score.
Running into wolves (/angels/biplanes), which damages you, gets you points - but not as many as luring a wolf into the portal.
You lose points when a wolf destroys a sheep.
At Game Over, each sheep saved throughout play is worth 500 points.
If you complete all 20 levels, you will recieve a game completion bonus of 100000.

THERE IS NO SOUND because this is a pure code game, and to the best of my knowledge, there is no way to create sounds purely using Actionscript.
Also, the idea was to have a very low filesize, which is virtually impossible when audio is involved.
Having said that, I may release a version of this with sound at a later date, since I believe it would benefit from some bleating.

A very well made game

The talent, quality and originality stands out here, its just missing sound. this would have earnt a 9/10 in my books with sound. anyway nice one dude. keep it up.

Denvish responds:

Yeah, well if I can be arsed I might release a 'full' version with sound at a later date.

Denvish responds:
