Title: Advanced Lawnmower Simulator
Post by: Carlos on November 01, 2013, 18:57:58 PM
for FIGnition!

Advanced Lawnmower Simulator (or ALS) was quite simply the best game to appear on the Spectrum. It was written by (at the time) well-known Your Sinclair writer Duncan MacDonald. In April 1990, it was reviewed in YS and was promptly awarded a YS 'Megagame'. The following month, it was 'featured' on the Covertape. Yes, you've guessed it - the whole thing was an elaborate April Fool's joke.

I have converted the game to FIGnition, it plays well, and has sound FX also.




and here is the game running

Brilliant. How many hours could you spend on a lawnmower simulation?

I guess it depends on just show sweaty you get while you simulate mowing the lawn.  ;)
