“It's like some sort of adorable vortex you never want to leave...there's something to be said for a game that goes out of its way to excel at style and quality, and Home Sheep Home 2 definitely has both by the bushel.”
4.7/5 – Jay Is Games

“What’s more impressive about this game is how little is reused. Basic puzzle mechanics stay throughout (only by stepping on the button can you open the door) but the flow of the puzzles doesn’t repeat. Like Braid and Portal before it, there’s a desire to always present the player with new challenges, and it works. One moment you might be evading a giant boulder, only to be grabbing parachutes mid-air the next.”
9/10 – Thunderbolt Games

“It looks like many of you really looked forward to this title on the forums, and I can say that it's taken all the concepts from the first game and made them bigger and better, and it doesn't disappoint in its execution.”
4/5 – Touch Arcade

About This Game

Shaun the Sheep's BAFTA-nominated puzzle game is back for a second baa-rilliant adventure!

Join Shaun, Timmy and Shirley as they journey through over 60 levels of underground caverns, negotiate the busy streets of London and teleport through outer space all in search of the green, green grass of home. Use each sheep’s unique abilities to shove, leap, squeeze and swim your way through underground tunnels, abandoned mineshafts - and even evade the guards at Buckingham Palace!

Key Features

Home Sheep Home 2 retains the simple controls and tricky puzzles that made the first game so popular. Control Shaun, Timmy or Shirley and use sheep-teamwork to get to the end of each stage.

Each stage is littered with collectables including smelly socks, cupcakes and even game controllers - but you’ll need to be top of the flock to collect them all! Think outside the box and use the special abilities of each sheep wisely to fully complete each level.

Think you’ve mastered the game? Test your skills on some fiendishly difficult bonus levels, which provide a new take on some familiar stages! Show the world what you’re made of with leaderboards and achievements.

More sheep related puns than you can shake a lamb's tail at.

Created by Aardman Animations, creators of Wallace and Gromit, Chicken Run, Shaun the Sheep, and much more!

This game is just AWESOME and VERY VERY CUTE, it just made me laugh and smile, and much better on the bigger screen. Each puzzle is not too difficult to solve, but dose get quite challenging as you move on to the next one. I recon I got my money's worth, But would prefere an Xbox controller to move and jump my sheepy's. You have 3 sheep to control with one at a time, to help solve the puzzle and move along to next stage.( The big sheep need's shearing though ;D ). LOVE THIS GAME IT'S FUN and FRUSTRATING all in one package. Enjoy :D

An addictive little puzzle game, this. Each level is small and simple so even if you get stuck it shouldn't be for long. The gameplay is slick, with each level having multiple targets (time and collectibles), and there are plenty of fair achievements to earn. And if you are a fan of Shaun the Sheep you will get a kick from the visual style too. Downsides? A bit on the short side, but for the budget price it's still decent value.

A flufftastic game ewe've got to play!

So, how many of you guys grew up with Wallace and Gromit? I did, and I even rewatched the original short films recently. They are just as great now as back then. Thus, you can imagine how excited I was to discover that Aardman Animations had not only made a video game, but was selling it on Steam! That, along with the adorable ingame pictures, is what led to me wishlisting Home Sheep Home 2.

Thanks to a very generous friend, I received this as a gift and played it immediately to show my gratitude. I am glad I did! It's a fantastic game for many reasons. Check below for a flock-ton of reasons to give it a try!

  • The graphics are cute as can be. The three sheep made me want to reach through the screen and hug them. Overall, the aestetic looks more like it is drawn than computer-designed, and it helps give Home Sheep Home 2 its unique personality.
  • There is a simple story. The game does not need more than that. What is worth noting is the lack of dialogue. Aardman Animations has always been good at telling tales through visuals, though dialogue is used in their other works. In this case, you can understand what is going on perfectly fine in terms of story-telling despite having non-speaking sheep.
  • The characters are great. You have three sheep: Shirley, Shaun, and Timmy. They each have their own strengths and weaknesses, which means you have to use all three to finish the levels. For instance, Shirley is able to push large objects as the biggest sheep, while Timmy can fit through small holes due to his tiny size. Shaun is the best jumper and acts as the middle ground between the other two. This means that not only do you have three characters to play as, but that they are all necessary and different from one another.
  • In terms of controls, Home Sheep Home 2 does very well. It is easy to switch between the three sheep using the numeric keys, and you have an option to use your mouse instead. Moving with the arrow keys is no trouble, and using space to jump makes it simple to get around. There are not many controls needed, and the ones present are good.
  • Three tutorial levels are present. They are good for getting to know the game. You can also skip past them if you don't want to bother with them. As for myself, I liked going through them.
  • With 45 levels, all having different designs and concepts, this will keep you busy for a while. There are also 15 bonus levels that you unlock with collectibles, meaning that with the tutorial levels included, there is a total of 63 levels. The levels are grouped into three areas: the mines, London, and space. They serve as themes, but that does not mean they are identical. The change in level set-ups and tactics keeps the game fresh and fun.
  • There is platforming, but it is primarily a puzzle game. Working out how to go through each level with the three sheep tickles the brain in just the right ways. Most solutions are not difficult to figure out, but they do require thinking. There are some levels that are trickier, and they are rewarding to figure out.
  • Lots of collectibles are scattered throughout the levels. You can collect socks for fun, cupcakes to get "cheats" ingame, and video game controllers to open bonus levels. Some are out in the open, and others are well hidden. It's definitely worth finding them all!
  • For those interested in speedrunning, each level has times to beat for up to three stars. There are also developer times that are insane to overcome. If you like a challenge, give those a try!
  • Once you beat the game, you can see developer commentaries in each level. There are interesting bits of trivia, and there are funny ones. They're worth checking out.
  • There are 52 achievements. Some are simple to get, while others will test your skills. I enjoyed them a lot. None were overly frustrating, but I also felt like I earned several rather than having them handed to me on a silver platter. Those kinds of achievements that take effort, but are not almost impossible, are the ones I prefer.
  • This makes for a wonderful family game. Both children and adults should get several hours of enjoyment out of it. It took me over eight hours to complete everything besides all the developer time challenges. I'm sure people playing it together will get even more hours out of it. I'll probably give it a replay at some point just for fun!
  • Wallace and Gromit fans will find homages to the films inside Home Sheep Home 2, along with several Easter eggs to different movies and series. Even more than that, Shaun fans will be thrilled to find that he is one of the three playable sheep! He looks a bit healthier than in A Close Shave, but his trademark grin certainly brought back fond memories for me.
  • Almost every level has a sheep-related pun. The credits even lists two people as being responsible for them. I won't spoil them, but as much as I groaned at them, they were pretty great, and several were quite clever.

  • None of the levels have music. There is a fanfare at entering levels, but that's the closest you'll get. I would have liked some good tunes. At the same time, looping music in puzzle games can get infuriating quickly. Having silence is probably a safer option, so I can't criticize it too much.
  • I was sad to discover that the first Home Sheep Home is not on Steam. It is free in other locations, though, so it is at least easily accessible. I plan to give it a try sometime.
  • There are no trading cards. I was a bit disappointed since I think they would have very cute art, but I certainly don't count it as a strike against the game.

  • There are two levels where dynamite has to be used to launch the sheep to the end of the level. One of these is fairly painless. The other has some physics that I found very difficult to deal with. That one level was the worst part of the game for me. Thankfully it was only one level, so I can easily overlook that.
  • A lot of the bonus levels are a previous level with a small change. That small change requires different tactics to complete the level. While I found those interesting, I would have preferred more that were completely new levels. There are some, but I did want more.
  • You can get yourself trapped and be stuck for good. Fortunately, the level will restart automatically if that happens, and it can be manually restarted without a hitch. This did happen to me once, though. Some rock physics went wonky and stuck poor Shaun into the boulder and ground. I wouldn't call it an outright glitch, but it was a slip-up that probably shouldn't have happened.

Overall experience:

I had a blast with Home Sheep Home 2! It's a charming game that is fun for players of all ages. $9.99 is a fair full price. Anything lower is a baaa-rgain! Whether you have seen the movies from Aardman Animations or not, it is worth playing this. Maybe it will even convince you to check out their other works!


9.5/10. Honestly, I can't see any reason to give it lower than that. There are so many great things about Home Sheep Home 2 with so few flaws, and that means it really earns its high score. I highly recommend this bleatiful game!

I highly recommend this indie game, especailly to those who love solving puzzles. Three sheep, a long exciting journey, 3 different episodes, one hundred of stuff to collect, 15 serect levels, 180 stars to beat and more interesting achievements to explore. This game is both for children and adults, not hard to play but quite creative. I also appreciate its art style and music. For achivement hunters, I should say the prefection takes you 5 hours, but definitely worthy.

Surprisingly fun little game. It is a puzzle game, which I usually don't like, but after having played a crappy one (logigun) that did everything the wrong way, this game got it right. The art and music were nice. There was not really a story but that's not a big deal. The humor was good. It was nice how each sheep has its own abilities, you'll start to get to know them for that and develp a favorite. It is also cool how each one makes its own sound. Unlike that crap logigun game, the puzzles are well done. Instead of a giant room with 12 switches, 15 moveable boxes, 10 lazers, and only 1 single solution the creators made so you have to figure out the exact order they want you to do it so you can beat the level, which takes 30 minutes of looking and isn't intuitive, this game is the opposite. The puzzles are clever, require reasoning and logic, and can actually be solved multiple ways (some of them). Once again, as opposed to the logigun game, you are not in just a single boring looking nondescript room, each level has different setting and objectives and you operate different machinery, so it actually feels like the puzzles has a purpose instead of just "open final door". There are 3 episodes which are each differently themed. The variety kept everything interesting, and it wasn't just stupidly over hard for the sake of being so (logigun......sorry I just played the game right before this so I am drawing all my comparisons). The game was kind of short though and I guess you can play a similar version online for free on a flash website. 7/10

This was a great discovery and experience! The three sheeps Shaun, Timmy and Shirly, each with own abilities (strong and fat - small - thin and elegant), go through 3 different environments (Underground, London, Space) in varying types of puzzles. The positive thing is that there is no given solution, more are often possible. The puzzles are not too difficult until the last levels, the backgrounds are wonderfully illustrated in the style of the movies, and if you are stuck are helping system avoids too much a frustration.
There are lots of achievements and collectables and together with the puzzles there is a brilliant gaming flow created.
Some info concerning the free flash version: the Steam one has 2/3 more levels + 15 Bonuslevels, HD sound and graphics, so no way to complain to have 9 hours fun for 10 bucks (the replay value is really poor, especially if one has achieved all the goals). Besides this there are no trading cards.
Fazit: Amusing little game with a lot of sheepy puzzles and noises!

Sheep, Sheep, Sheep ? ... NO, its not Sven Baumwolle! .. Its Shaun the Sheep :)

A realy nice short Game with funny puzzles. If you like Games like Toki Tori, you should give Home Sheep Home 2 a try.

I know there is a free Flash game out there but its not the same as the Steam edition, you have more Levels and of course, Achivements ;)

Controlls are not bad, easy for young and old :)

Nice drawings, mapping and of course, the sweet Sheep`s xD

Really enjoyed this game. Clever puzzles, funny situations and lots to collect and achieve. I bought this game for my son since I knew he'd love to watch me play (while telling me what to do of course), but I really liked it too! We had a blast playing this game. He loves the cheats and loves making the sheep jump. He's even done a few of the levels himself (he's 5). Highly recommended.

Simple, enjoyalble, and it featuring Shaun and company!
Simple little puzzle game with a growing difficulty curve as you go. And unlike many this game is fairly unforgiving, you need to get the puzzles right, or reset the puzzle. None of that "no way to lose" bull that most games of this style have taken up in recent years.

Theres really nothing else to say except that the only true negative is it doesn't do a native 16:9 resolutions.

Is it ok to support a game you could play for free?
Getting this out of the way, Yes, this game can be found for free, almost in its entirety, that is if you don't get frustrated looking for the 3 separate chapters.

Shaun The sheep is a charming show, so its good to know Home Sheep Home is more than just a stripped-down puzzle, featuring Shaun.
Its a decent game regardless of its association with the show.
The game is divided in 3 Chapters, all of them focused around the three sheep specific abilities

  • Shaun: is the middle ground character, aside from jumping higher than the other sheep, he can support some weight but not to much, he is tall but not too tall and he can push medium sized objects.
  • Timmy: is small, he can't support weight or jump high, but he can fit through small spaces.
  • shirley: is the heavy character, her job is to move the heavier blocks as well as helping others reaching higher platforms

The game is divided into 3 chapters
The difficulty is decent enough, at least for chapter 1 and 3, but if you are looking for a challenge, this isn't it.
You could find some enjoyment going after specific achievements, finding hidden objects as well as going after the developers time, but the puzzles themselves won't leave you scratching your head

  • Chapter 1 - Underground
    These levels are all about logic
    Some hidden collectibles that present with something closer to a challenge as well as rewarding you with references, that range from Indiana Jones to what i think if my memory doesn't fail me, is Manic Miner, some of these items will even grant you with bonus levels.
  • Chapter 2 - Lost in London
    Is the easiest of the bunch, but also introduces some sort of story line closer to what you would expect from the show.
    For the most part, these aren't exactly puzzles, it revolves around simple physics and timing your jumps.
    "piece of cake" really. You would have to be really young to get some enjoyment out of these levels.
    There's also less items to collect and less bonus levels
  • Chapter 3 - Lost in space
    More of a return to what makes the first chapter good
    with more hidden items, more references and bonus levels, which all together gives you something closer to a challenge than the previous chapter.
    this chapter is mostly about teleport swaps.

My initial question was rhetorical, ofc you should support this game, its clever, its funny and it provides a decent challenge.
The original price is a bit to high, but if its discounted or bundled i recommend picking it up, more so if you are looking for something worthwhile for kids
