Aardman Digital this week launched Home Sheep Home 2, the sequel to the BAFTA nominated hit online game ‘Home Sheep Home’ that was released in February 2010 and has achieved over 109 million plays to date.

Featuring characters from the international award-winning TV show Shaun the Sheep, the new puzzle adventure game, billed as a ‘Little Epic’ across three episodes, sees Shaun, Shirley and Timmy playing the lost sheep in three scenarios: underground, London and finally in outer space.

In the first episode, ’Lost Underground‘, the trio is thrown in at the deep end as they wander far from the comfort of the farm to fall down a rather inconvenient mineshaft. Instead of the green, green grass of home, they have to contend, as only sheep can, with explosive TNT and giant magnets.

The second episode, ‘Lost in London’, dazzles our farmyard heroes (and heroine) with the bright lights of the capital city – and tests their skills as they try to overcome security systems, hidden tunnels and chimney cannons.

Finally, in ‘Lost in Space’, they wind up in a nearby alien space ship and find themselves contending with portals, force fields and planetary gravity.

Home Sheep Home 2 is available across three platforms, with web and PC download versions developed by Aardman Digital and an iOS version developed by Bristol agency Mobile Pie and published by leading games publisher Chillingo of Angry Birds and Cut the Rope fame.

The ‘Lost Underground’ episode for the web is available to play now via flash games portal Not Doppler with the other two episodes scheduled to follow in 2012. The iOS version features episodes one and two at launch with a third episode to be added in the New Year. For those gamers who simply cannot wait, the super rich PC download game includes all 3 episodes. All formats feature a raft of exclusive bonus content including collectible items and unlockable cheat modes guaranteeing hours of fun over repeated plays for the whole family.

Lorna Probert, Head of Aardman Digital says, “We have produced Home Sheep Home 2 with the same attention to detail and love that you would expect from an Aardman production. The game has beautiful hand-painted backdrops, endearing character animations, original music and of course a generous sprinkling of the famous Aardman humour for which our studio is known and loved the world over. After 10 months in development, we’re incredibly excited about the launch of this game and we believe that it has the potential to build on the phenomenal success of the original.”

To play the game, go to . It's only 69p in the app store which sounds like a bargain to me !
