The Lawnmower Man
by TIME WARNER INTERACTIVE
Come with me to a world that is not known to many. A world that some would stick their noses up at and look away in disgust. A world that you and I or anyone else who has even an ounce of knowledge about the video game industry would know. The world of Virtual Reality. This game is based on the science-fiction movie of the same name. It involves experiments in the Virtual Reality world. Experiments that can make one smarter and give unbelievable powers. That is the premise for this game. Play as Dr. Angelo or Carla trying to defeat Jobe, a simple-minded man who was transformed into the "demon" you see in the middle. He was part of these experiments. When the government decided to stick their unwanted heads into all of this, he went crazy with from the power. Travel through the side-scrolling levels and find the portals that will take you into the virtual worlds. Eventually fight Jobe to keep him from taking over the world's computers and then the world itself.
The movie was pretty cool and this game features lots of aspects from it.
The levels you fly in don't feel like they control right.
Try and find your body (or should I say body parts?) if you crash in the helicopter.

Jobe, you naughty boy.
This is what happens when you play around with virtual reality.
The Lawnmower Man is based on the movie, incorporating images of the original actors and some fairly original game play.
You play as Dr. Angelo and/or Carla to try to stop Jobe from breaking out of his virtual domain and short-circuiting the world.
The Lawn-mower Man is a mix of straightforward shooting and virtual-reality action.
Fans of the flick will be familiar with the human glider ride through the obstacle course and many of the game's scenarios.
This is a nice tide for followers of Jobe's bright real lawn muncher.
- Be prepared to jump when facing the security forces.
- Follow the onscreen prompts to find the data you need to access Jobe's Virtual Domains.
- Capture the power-ups released from vanquished guards.
