Cows vs Sheep: Mower Mayhem - What just happened?

Cows Vs Sheep: Mower Mayhem is a free to play high score chaser in which you have to basically cause as much wanton destruction as possible. As a cow on a lawnmower.

Yes, it's as crazy as it sounds. You drive around a neighbourhood smashing up everything you come across to increase your combo rating. Careful you don't crash though, as that resets it.

Cow-a-bunger?

Driving is automatic, though you have to handle the turning. That's as simple as tapping and holding on the side of the screen. It's hardly rocket science.

And it's not as chaotic as it sounds either. You progress through a series of levels, and each one has its own set of challenges to complete.

These range from gathering mushrooms to finding and smashing a greenhouse. It might not be very nice but you'll earn a gold trophy if you complete all of them.

You're also driven along by a wacky plot that makes absolutely no sense. All I know is cows and sheep are fighting each other over grass.

That being said, the animations are lovely and would give a Cartoon Network TV show a run for its money. You may just stick around for those.

Zany waney

Ultimately though, while its zaniness does provide some initial entertainment, Cows Vs Sheep: Mower Mayhem fails to provide a hook.

Smashing things just isn't that fun here, the goals are difficult to accomplish on your first run (therefore forcing you to replay the same levels), and the plot is so silly and nonsensical you'll want to skip the cutscenes.
