Description

Control a droid on the planet Andromadous trying to herd Ramboids (alien sheep) into a teleporter. First the droid has to travel through a chamber filled with constantly moving Ramboids. Then the Ramboids must be herded towards the teleport receptor in a particular order. As well as the droid's standard movement mode, it can also tunnel or dig through the caverns. In later levels, the cavern designs become more complex and moving blocks create further problems.

Title

The title references the British television series One Man and His Dog, a contest based around sheepdog trials. It began in 1976 and was a regular programme until 1999, followed by annual Christmas specials until 2012. It now lives on as a segment of the rural affairs programme Countryfile. The phrase is also used colloquially - a poorly attended or uninteresting event might be said to have been attended only by 'one man and his dog'.
