    IF YOU FAIL, YOU'RE FIRED!
  • Make your quota! Get a raise! Get a bonus! Get a bigger quota!
  • Fend off nasty lawyers and furry pests.
  • Make it all the way from the assembly line to the mansion on the hill!

Gameplay is divided into 6 different kinds of shifts, each with its own assignments (provide power, use wrench to tighten bolts, etc.) You will use tools throughout the game, and will be awarded with bonus items (hourglass for extra time, cash bonus for extra points).
