It always makes one wonder how relevant old PC game releases are for new platforms, as a majority of players who wanted to play the game probably already played it. This is also the case for Home Sheep Home: Farmageddon Party Edition, a puzzle game with Shaun the Sheep in the lead that was released all the way back in 2014. This title has now made its way to modern platforms, and we decided to give the game a spin on PS5. We were curious to see if this game could still provide a party in the local barn or if it was just a wolf in sheep’s clothing.


Outside of Shaun the Sheep in the lead of this puzzle game, there is hardly any story content to be found. After each chapter, you’ll see a few pictures of what Shaun and his friends are up to, but that’s basically all there is in terms of story. We didn’t really miss the absence of a bigger narrative, as the overall gameplay was more than entertaining enough.


Graphically, Home Sheep Home is a very cute game. The game boasts 2D visuals that seemingly consist of actual drawings. The art style works perfectly for a game such as this, and we really enjoyed seeing the little details in many of the levels. Some animations may look a bit stiff and limited, but it does add to the charm of having a game that looks hand-drawn.


The sound design is rather simple in this game. The soundscape mainly consists of sound effects and a few background noises. The music is very limited, and you’ll have to make do with a jingle or two during the stages. We didn’t really mind the lack of a varied soundtrack.


Home Sheep Home: Farmageddon Party Edition is a puzzle game with platforming elements. The game is fairly straightforward, as you simply need to get all three sheep across the finish line of each stage. In the stages, you’ll have to move around objects, stack your sheep to reach higher ledges, and press switches. Each of the sheep in the game has its own strengths and weaknesses. Shaun has great mobility skills and can jump higher and further, Shirley is capable of moving heavy objects and Timmy can fit in tight spaces. This means that you’ll have to work together to reach the end of each stage. You are able to play the game solo or with up to three players. We preferred playing the game with friends and family.

Truth be told, there isn’t that much to say in terms of actual gameplay. The puzzles are often easy enough to figure out, and each of the stages has some collectibles for you to find. When collecting these, you’ll also unlock bonus stages. The game does have a few chapters to play through, and you’ll have a few hours of work cut out for you if you aim for that coveted three-star score for each level, as well as all collectibles. We found the controls to be very responsive as well.

If you have blasted through the game’s main content just like us, Home Sheep Home does have a few fun multiplayer mini-games you can also play through. These mini-games are fairly simplistic, but they proved to be a lot of fun. It’s only a small gimmick to add a bit of content to an otherwise short game, but we found ourselves playing the mini-games quite a few times in-between other bigger titles.


Home Sheep Home: Farmageddon Party Edition is a great puzzle game that is best enjoyed with friends or family. While it took some time for this cute game to be released on modern platforms, it’s still very much worth checking out if you haven’t picked it up yet. If you already own it, however, there’s probably no reason to double-dip.
