It's The Wooluf

IT'S THE WOOLUF is another of those infuriating sheepdog games where you have to guide your energetic collie round the fields, rounding up the sheep and steering them safely into the pen.

Crystal Computing has provided all the usual hazards - a river, woody copses, and the big bad wolf which sneaks along between the clumps of trees waiting to jump out and devour your dwindling flock.

Although it is a fast-moving implementation, there seems to be no particular reason for releasing another version of an already much-imitated game. Since there is no joystick option, nor any choice of control keys provided, It's the Wooluf seems unlikely to stand its ground against products already on the market.

On the other hand, jaded shepherds with portable power units may derive some light relief from the program.
