  • Summary: 1950s Lawn Mower Kids is a fun game where you under severe time constraints simultaneously keep the three TNT-kids mowing. All this while avoiding moving objects, well laid tables and intricate flower beds. Your opponents will be dogs, cats, ducks, and a menagerie of people lead by Angry Old Joe. On your side is Mr Mowman and his strange but wonderful contraptions. Expand

    After a strong start with Valet Parking 1989, Zordix has managed to craft yet another simplistic action puzzle game with 1950s Lawn Mower Kids that will definitely appeal to anyone looking for a back-to-basics product. Unfortunately, though, despite having some intriguing gameplay mechanics, camera movement restrictions mar the experience overall, holding this back from being what it deserved to be - a cult classic.

    So don't bother volunteering for any extra chores around the house to earn money for this one. You might have more fun just actually mowing the yard.
  3. There's a certain amount of tension as the clock ticks, but moving the stylus up and down to mow lawns is both fiddly and a bit dull - you really need to keep all three mowers running at once to succeed. Add in a ravenous dog that wants to bite chunks out of your kids and the result is a gruelling, unforgiving... well, chore.

    The gameplay is passable and there is a high level of challenge for completionists, but the title falls over in almost every other area.

    The game becomes the chore it aims to send up. [Nov 2011, p.75]

    The game isn't especially good and I can't recommend it. The developer successfully made a game about summer chores feel like a chore, but I don't know if that was the point.

    This would make a poor choice for a 99p iPhone game. They're asking £4.50 for it. No satisfaction and no fun to be had from this game.
