Lawnmower

Some time back I got a look at a game on the old Atari 400 micro-computer called ‘Hover Bovver’, love the title.  Lawnmower is, at last, a CPC version of that old early Spectrum-era game.

Just like the Atari original your task is simply to mow the lawn without running into the walls, falling in the lake, or destroying the flower beds.  It’s a fairly simple single screen affair but offers a nice amount of fun for a magazine type-in (well worth the effort).

In the Atari version you had the neighbours dog trying to get in your way and make life a misery.  In this version the mutt has been replaced by ‘er in doors/she who must be obeyed, chasing you down with her rolling pin.
