What with the recession, rising interest rates and the price of a pint edging ever nearer to two quid, the building trade has enough problems on its plate without those presented by new German company Eclipse in this game.
Mr Bob is having problems with his construction sites - problems that make it almost impossible for his guys to do any work.
It all started when some forest creatures, known as Mad Meanies, discovered they had a fetish for that bit of flesh that hangs out of the back of every construction worker's aging Levis. They started by gazing from afar but they soon became more and more bold.
Then they realised that they actually had a bigger fetish for the building tools of the guys with the bum cleavage. So at night they crept on to the sites and stole every tool they could carry.
This is where Mr Bob's problem lies - his workmen have no tools. You take control of one Beastie Buster known as Leroy, the best guy for the job by all accounts. But then that is probably more to do with him being the only guy for the job rather than any particular aptitude for his profession. He is employed to guard each building site at night and destroy any of the Mad Meanies he may come across on his travels.
He chooses a rather unusual method to do this - he fills them with compressed helium and watches them float up into the sky. If he gets really clever he can push them off the screen, removing any other Meanies they may hit during their brief flight to oblivion.
When the meanies are inflated they drop all the tools that they have stolen. Leroy can collect these for a bonus when he returns them to Mr Bob, after he has finished each site.
The levels are played against the clock, with you losing a life if all the Meanies are not inflated when the sands of time run dry. If you feel that this may be an impossible task then the game can be played by two in a joint effort to reduce considerably the atmosphere's helium supply.
I was expecting something far better from a company run by a programmer who had close involvement with the project. Must try harder.
