As the new hired hand in this game, you'll be assigned to care for the farm's notorious camel herd. To keep the camels happy, you'll need to lead the camels out to the grass field to graze. However, your task will not be an easy one. Far from being lemmings, camels have minds of their own, and will go in whatever way their stomachs please.

To control these camels, you'll need to make use of your fence digging and posting skills, mushroom finding abilities, and nimble fingers. If you succeed, you'll be well on your way to camel poke fame.

Camel Poke...what can I say, it's addictive! It's made me somewhat less fond of camels, though, at least ones that walk into mud. ^_^

Each of the levels has a unique twist to it, which saves the game from getting repetetive.

*Goes to play more* CAMELS!

This is a surprsingly addicting game. I mean it may not look like much, but it's quite interesting. It may seem easy at first, trying to get the camels onto the grass with the provided fences and mushrooms, but after having to manage multiple camels it gets pretty hectic. It provides a challenge and it's good if you're bored and want to pass the time. I'd definately recommend that you give it a chance.

P.S. The music is great =P Well for the first few minutes. It gets slightly annoying after looping for 20 times over. Other then that, the gameplay more then makes up for it. Plus they give you an option to turn off the music so you can just play MP3's in the background ^-^

Sorry to be so harsh, but this stinks. Worse than a real camel!

It's humorless, impossible to control, and I'm only too eager to have to shred this - leaving no trace of it on my Mac - but it's gone.

Why on earth would you make the claim that this was 'like' Lemmings?

Oh well, better luck with your future endevours!

Thanks for the input. This program is still in development and is a labor of love, so don't expect professional 3D rendering or graphics that cater to those with short attention spans. Besides, working with camels requires a bit of patience, as does this game. It's meant to be more a puzzle than an arcade game.

PS: I've made no claim about the lemming like nature of this game (although Macupdate might have). Remember, camels are far from being lemmings...

The graphics aren't the problem, the complete lack of playability is. All I managed to do was drive the camel to the top of the screen where it got stuck... obviously there's some subtlety to the game I don't "get".

Did you move the fences out of the way or use the mushrooms to guide the camel? If you did, and the camel was still stuck, you very well might have found a bug. If that's the case, I'd be very interested in the details of how it got stuck for debugging.

I spent most of my time trying to figure out how to move fences, let alone "use the mushrooms".
