Thriving Toy Company seeks energetic employee to operate unconventional machine. Generous rewards in store for you... if you can meet the challenge!

  • Master the BEAST to crank out action figures from Star Wars(r), Indiana Jones(r) and your favourite LucasArts games. You must meet your quota each night.
    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!
(from the back of the box)

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).
