At its heart Lawn Mower is a maze or Pac-Man like game. Although I had seen some shareware Windows games with a similar theme, I was surprised to find this ASCII DOS game from 1987. The object is to mow the text-mode lawn as efficiently as possible by avoiding obstacles, using as little gas as possible, etc. It looks decent enough and plays reasonably well, but there isn't a whole lot of depth. (Note: You must use the numeric keypad to move; if you don't have a numeric keypad on your keyboard, you would need to use keymapping of some sort to play this.)
