Sheepwalk is a puzzle-arcade game uploaded to Newgrounds on August 10, 2012 by Ben Pettengill. It was featured on Pixel Love on August 20, 2012. The player, controlling a sheepdog, must help get all the sheep in a particular level back to the sheep pen.
Arrow keys - Move the sheepdog
Enter key - Execute a selected action on the menu screen or proceed to the next level.
There are 30 levels in Sheepwalk. The sheepdog is placed in a large grassy area with multiple sheep and a pen. The player's job is to use the sheepdog to guide the stray sheep to the pen, then exit before any sheep do.
If the player completes a level without losing any of their hearts, the level is marked with a star next to its number on the level selection screen. This star can be lost should the player replay the level and lose all hearts in that level.

The music switches to the track "Playtime" and shows an animated picture of the sheepdog riding in a truck with its head out an open window. The words "You did it!" are written underneath.
Different types of sheep appear in Sheepwalk, with different behaviours that the sheepdog must adapt to in order to guide them to the pen.
Sheep - Normal sheep follow the sheepdog when in close range, and may wander off if the sheepdog travels too far.
Rams - Larger than normal sheep, they are more aggressive and run faster, following the sheepdog at a close range.
Lambs - Instead of running towards, lambs run away from the sheepdog. They are smaller than normal sheep.
Water - Sheep are not able to swim across puddles of water, and drown when doing so.
Barbed wire - Hurts the sheepdog on contact, but not the sheep.
Wolf - The wolf in some levels will wander outside the fenced area before closing in on the sheep.
A "Gallery" option in the main menu displays a list of achievements the player can earn by completing certain tasks. Each achievement not obtained shows a silhouette for its picture and only shows the task and not the name. Alerts appear at the bottom left corner of the screen whenever the player has an achievement added to their gallery.
