A downloadable game for Windows and macOS

Race against the clock in retro time-attack style as you Mow your way to victory! 

Mower Mayhem is inspired by arcade classics built for the Sega Model 2 board. Our goal was to combine the frenetic time-attack game play of Daytona USA and the job systems from Crazy Taxi...with LAWN MOWING!

Earn points by cuttin' grass and smashin' stuff. Mowing all patches on a lawn awards big points, helping you climb the leader board.

About Us

We are a team of five, second-year Game Design students at Yoobee School of Design, Wellington (NZ). Mower Mayhem was made in 5 weeks as part of our Diploma in Game Art & Development. The focus of this project was to launch a highly-targeted game with the goal of gathering player analytics data in order to iterate and make improvements on the game based on feedback. Comments and feedback are welcome.

Open the new folder that is created and double click the Mower Mayhem.exe file (the one with the logo next to it) to run the game. 

Your firewall may tell you not to open it, but don't worry it's just packed with high-octane, lawn mowing action.
