Have you ever tried to count sheep in order to fall asleep? It doesn't work. Why? It's not just because sheep are far too noisy to use as sleeping aids, it's because there's something oddly unsettling about them. What do they have hiding under their fur - wings perhaps? The sheepocalypse is upon us, and yes, those are sheep falling from the skies. It's time to run endlessly to put an end to this madness. Or something like that. I'm not exactly sure what's going on in Kongregate's latest Android title, Sheep Happens, but it's definitely on the wacky side.

Sheep Happens pits players in the speedy shoes of Perseus and tasks them with running as fast as possible in order to catch the nefarious Hermes. Of course, you're also going to want to collect copious amounts of gold coins in the process. This money can be spent on items, upgrades, and abilities that can assist you on your quest. The game also contains a few mini-games just in case, you know, endlessly running starts to get dull.

As is par for the course with this sort of game, there's the option to buy more gold using real cash. I'd wager that if you want to catch Hermes at some point, you might just have to. But if you're just in the mood for another endless runner to kill time with and don't care about topping the leaderboards, this otherwise free game is bound to satisfy that craving.
