|First Impression||Neat. The first time I ran the program; I thought "How much fun couldyou have mowing a lawn?" After finishing the first round I thought "Cool!" The game takes an annoying chore and turns it into a fun little game to play when you are bored. It's perfect for late, nothing else to do, nights that we all get sometimes.|
|What It's Like||You are in control of a mower. You must mow all of the grass in the yard, while avoiding the flowers, bricks, and fencing. Be careful though, the family dog wants to come out and play. You must mow as much as you can, without running over the dog. If you hit the flowers, the owner will come out and then you have to dodge her too.|
|Other things you should know||Neat. It comes with it's own custom level editor. So you can play on whatever you like. It also has a two player mode so you and a friend can play together. When you first get the file though, you have to go in and edit where it changes the directory to. Otherwise it tries to go to the G: drive. Something that any QB programmer can do.|
The graphics are smooth, and look nice. Flowerbed's look like
fences look like fences. It also has little to no flicker. Another neat
effect is when you
actually do run over a fence or flowerbed, it leaves behind a broken
fence or a dug upflowerbed.
No sound, Darn
The game in itself is not very flexible, but the
fact that you can design
your own levels makes it real nice. I also like the two player option.
Few games have that nowadays.
The gameplay is simple. Just steer the mower round thefences,
flowerbeds, dogs, and people. If you hit an inanimate object, you lose
points. If you hit a
dog or person, you lose a life and have to start over. Be careful of the
dogs; they seem toenjoy jumping in front of the mower.
I personally didn't find a whole lot of joy in the
game, but my little
sister loves it. She played it a few times and now she wont stop bugging
me. So I won't
give it an extremely low score. The game is more for younger kids. Ages
6-14 kind of thing.
