Maniac Mower

"There is a lot of strategy involved in keeping your mower going and trapping your rival, and the game is enjoyable at that level."
Electron User

"It is extremely poor, undeserving of a release by any software company, a perfect rip off at four quid and likely to dissuade any purchaser of it from buying from Kansas again."
Electron User Group


After being out of work since you left school, you seized at a job for a park grasscutter. 'Easy money' you thought! You thought wrong. There is a mad mower on the loose in the park and it is out to get you!!

This mower will follow you and try to crash into you, or make you ram some mown grass. If you manage to capture and kill this mower you will be rewarded with a £30 bonus.

Also, while cutting the grass and dodging the mower, you see things in the grass. These things are fireworks, string, cricket balls and rubber bands. All of these things are fatal to your poor mower.

You are not allowed to crash into any of the park fences, but can wraparound in the vertical axis via the park path.

However, there are martial arts experts walking on the path, and if you bump into one he will tear you limb from limb!
