Lawnmower Challenge

JohnBThink you have it rough cutting the lawn every week? Try navigating mud pits, crazy fences, locked gates, hidden keys, one-way doors, and dozens more obstacles, all out to make your simple chore a lot more complex. Lawnmower Challenge from Lunar Enigma presents a classic sort of puzzle game set-up that's similar to titles like Wonderland in nature. Your goal is to cut the tall grass, but getting the mower to each square can take more time than the actual cutting!

lawnmowerchallenge.jpgLawnmower Challenge takes place on an isometric grid with handy touch controls on the bottom corner of the screen, one side allowing you to move, the other to start/stop mowing. Tap an arrow to move in that direction, and if you've got hold of the mower, you'll automatically chop tall grasses as you pass by.

The mower can't travel over muddy terrain, however, so in order to help it across, you'll need to strike out alone. Pick up bags of seeds and carry them back to dirt patches to plant grass, turning the mower-impassable square into a mower-friendly one. Locked gates and one-way doors are just a few of the other types of obstacles that will stand in your way, and much of your time in Lawnmower Challenge will be spent dealing with these troublesome roadblocks so you can get to bits of grass all around the screen.

As if actually getting the grass cut wasn't enough of a challenge, this tidy little puzzle game also puts a bit of pressure on you to complete stages using as few steps as possible. Sure, you can blaze through and take the long way around every fencepost and dirt patch, but if you want a gold star, you'll need to make efficiency your top priority. Fortunately, there's no timer to contend with, so you can sit, stare, think and plan as much as you like.

It sticks to its roots and doesn't dare stray from the most basic concepts, preferring to keep you focused on conserving steps and figuring out how to travel around each stage.

There's something pleasing about cutting grass in a mobile game. You don't have to suffer through the hidden stones, blazing heat, oppressive sun, or gawking neighbors, but you still get the satisfaction of a neat, trim patch of green when you're done. And to be honest, most of us would get very little grass cut if we had to trouble with all the puzzles we have to contend with in Lawnmower Challenge.

Visually pleasing and simply satisfying, Lawnmower Challenge is an utterly enjoyable and challenging puzzle game for your mobile device. Later levels get painfully complex, but you'll be so engrossed in the puzzle solving you'll soldier on, no matter the frustration. And best of all: lots of amazing updates are planned for the future, including new seasonal levels, new obstacles, co-op mode, and an avatar customization shop!

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on an HTC Incredible. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.

Hi,
Downloaded the app but when I start the game, all I see is a white square with blue lines in it. The blue lines move when I press the arrow keys. Any idea why?
thanks
