In Lawn Mower, you control a very powerful lawn mower. Your aim is to mow the lawn before your oil and fuel runs out. Your fuel is used up at a fairly constant rate as you go about your job. However, your oil gets used up if you go over a patch which has already been mowed.
The lawn is littered with rocks and fuel cans. If you go over a fuel can then your fuel level will increase; if you hit a rock or hit the fence then you will rebound. On higher skill levels the number of rocks increases while the number of fuel cans decreases.
At the bottom of the screen your fuel and oil levels are displayed. Oil is only used up if you go over any part of the lawn that has already been mowed. There is one oil can at the top of the screen, on the fence. If your oil gets dangerously low then go into the oil can and your oil level will increase.
Control of the lawn mower is achieved either by using the keyboard or using a joystick. A screen will be completed when only the rocks remain, whereupon you will automatically progress to the next skill level (in which there will be more rocks and fewer fuel cans).
