Notes

Published in the book 21 Games For The BBC Micro by Mike James, S. M. Gee and Kay Ewbank, published by Granada Publishing Ltd.

The book contains the following description:

 

If you’ve ever watched a shepherd and his dog coax a flock of sheep
into a pen you’re bound to agree that its a quite astounding feat. The
experienced shepherd makes it all look so effortless as he shouts and
whistles commands to his dog who obediently stands his ground, or
edges up a few paces, or runs around the back of the flock to head off
a straggler.
This game is an extremely realistic simulation. In fact its so true-tolife
that the only person we know who’s scored a ‘Super Shepherd’
rating was a real sheep farmer!! Five fluffy white sheep and a black
dog appear in a green field surrounded by a picket fence − it creates
just the right country atmosphere.
