Extreme Herder is a Meridellian game where you play Samrin the Kacheek, a simple shepherd who has to get his petpets to safety before Balthazar (who is very hungry after a day hunting faeries) eats them all.
In this game, you play Samrin the Kacheek, a simple shepherd who has to get his Petpets to safety before Balthazar (who is very hungry after a day hunting faeries) eats them all.
How to play
Use the Arrow Keys to move. You automatically pick up each Petpet as you touch it (use the Spacebar to drop the Petpet). Try and put them all into the paddock before Balthazar eats them. You have three lives, and you lose one each time that you or a Petpet gets eaten. Picking up a snowflake will freeze Balthazar temporarily. Picking up an orange speed orb will give you a temporary burst of speed!
Users are recommended to get the petpet closest to the snowflake, thereby slowing down the approach of Balthazar. Also, if he's about to eat a petpet, having yourself eaten you instead will lose a life, but still get the bonus for saving all petpets at the end of the level. If it's their last life, this is not recommended, in which case the petpets need to be gathered as fast as they can.
Typing freeze will freeze Balthazar temporarily. One time use only.
