Capcom plans to release Flock! for PC on 7th April, Xbox Live Arcade on 8th April and PlayStation Network on 9th April.

This downloadable title - developed by Proper Games - puts players in charge of a UFO that needs to find, round up and shuffle farm animals back to a mother-ship. Sheep, pigs, chickens and cows are on the menu, as they are at most good restaurants.

Animals are steered by a repellent ray beamed from the flying saucers, and difficulty slopes upward as players plod through around 50 levels, spanning each of the seasons.

Judging by a recent video, dangers include animals tumbling off of un-fenced ledges. The pace seems rather hectic with plenty of point multipliers, too.

Plus, Flock! looks very stylish, modelling patchwork-like tiled environments, and plenty of cute and cuddly cartoon accompaniments.

There's no word on price just yet.
