You must successfully stay on top of all the chores in order to placate your wild harridan of a wife, but it's not an easy task. The toilets are overflowing thanks to a fault in the neighbourhood sewer system, the rubbish bins are crammed to the brim with stinking trash and to cap it all off the local snowplough driver as mistaken your house for a dumping ground, regularly depositing huge piles of dirty snow outside your front door. You must clear these every time you need to get to the dumpster!
Do your best to complete all your chores but there's one more thing. To make matters worse the automated door system you installed to make your life easier is malfunctioning and the doors are opening and closing at random. It's very important to decide carefully which areas to tidy first and when to make your way to them.
There are tools that you must use to complete your chores. These are kept on the top floor of the house. You can only carry one tool at once due to your fundamental laziness.
The Plunger can only be used to clean the toilets and the Shovel must be used to clean up the snow that is regularly dumped outside.
Any task that requires your immediate attention will have an exclamation mark above it. You must sort these situations out quickly or your Win/Lose meter will start to descend rapidly. The point of the game is to help the meter reach the top by performing your chores in a timely manner.
To pick up items, simply walk over them and press the action button, then go to the area where you wish to use them and press action again. To empty a bin, walk up to it and press the action button. You will then by carrying the rubbish from it, which you must take outside to the dumpster. Press the action button to deposit the rubbish.
You cannot empty rubbish bins if there is snow dumped outside your house stopping you from reaching the dumpster, Make sure to clear dumped snow as quickly as possible!
Picking up rubbish will remove whatever tool was in your hand and you will have to go back to get it from the top floor before you can use it again.
Good luck. You're going to need it!
