Based off the hit sitcom, Tim "The Tool Man" Taylor's name has been put Binford's new line of power tools and he goes on a quest to retrieve the missing tools when he discovers that they are missing when he is about to present them on Tool Time. It is a race against time as you must collect various metal nuts to stay alive and collect a few wooden boxes of tool parts to proceed to the next part of the one of the four sound stages you are in. Defend yourself with your various common tools, take out weak walls and floors with your sledgehammer and jackhammer, and use your grappling tool to swing, lower, and raise yourself to distant areas.

Cancelled Genesis version

A version for the Sega Genesis was planned but cancelled due to the failure of the SNES version.


There was no manual included with the game: there was just a piece of paper that said "Real men don't need instructions."
