With so many of us locked in our homes at some point over the last few years, one thing that became a huge passion of homeowners was maintaining their garden. That could have meant trimming hedges, creating a flower bed, or perhaps adding a neat little water feature. However, one of the more entry-level options to pass the time was to simply mow the lawn and well, some people really took to it like a duck to water. However, once its cut, it’s cut. So if you want another chance to cut luscious fields of green, you need to try Lawn Mowing Simulator.
This game plays like other simulator games out there such as Bee Simulator, Microsoft Flight Simulator, Farming Simulator 2019 or Planet Coaster. This game aims to offer a relaxing, therapeutic and authentic garden maintenance simulator. However, is this game guilty pleasure? Or is this game a literal chore to play? We find out in our review of Lawn Mowing Simulator.
A Cut Above The Rest
While you might think that this game is just a novelty, it’s actually surprisingly deep. The game features a series of authentic lawn mower models from respected brands within the industry. These models are true to life, rendered expertly and this is just a fraction of the reason why this game looks fantastic. Each blade of grass is rendered to perfection and the environments that you visit to mow are all varied and stunning. Sure, the textures do look rubbery and simple in places but this is to be expected from an indie game of this nature. So taking this into account its a very visually appealing game.
Then keeping with the deep and meaningful argument for this game. The player can become a career mower. Players will be able to take on a series of contracts for larger and larger properties. You will be challenged to complete these jobs within tight deadlines, you will be able to manage your finances and use them to buy bigger and better gear for the task at hand. Then by the end of your journey, you be a certified master of the mower.
Plus, it can not be stated enough that this game has the ability to hypnotize the player into a state of serene relaxation. Hours can slip by as you simply mow to your hearts content and since that is the sole purpose of this game, we would say this is a success. Does this game have a story, a killer soundtrack or any flashy mechanics? No, but we ask you, does it really need any?
Overall, Lawn Mowing simulator is always going to be limited by the niche nature of the subject matter. Plus the fact that the gameplay is rather repetitive which isn’t for everyone.
However, in terms of what this game sets out to achieve, it does so with aplomb. This is one of the most authentic, simple and relaxing simulator games on the market and is perfect for anyone that wants to unwind after a long day. So if this kind of game is right up your alley, Lawn Mowing Simulator is perhaps the best of 2021 in it’s field, pun intended.
