Zordix AB is carving a niche for period games based on boring chores. After creating Valet Parking 1989, they've made 1950s Lawnmower Kids. Whatever next? 1963 Hoovering?
Mowing is rarely this frantic as you have to cut lawns within a very short time limit, controlling three differently specced mowers entirely with the stylus.
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.
