On Tyndale Maintenance: The Game

-A quick introduction-

While at work on any Tyndale Maintenance job, there is invariably a test of skill and cunning which presents itself with the given task. These tests of the Tyndale Maintenance worker range from that of colossal engineering, to the subtle, yet unexpected setback. Play as either Chris or Mark*, and realize the adventure and reward of Tyndale Maintenance in the comfort of your own home.
Set in the style of Chips Challenge (see windows 95) and the occasional adventure perspective, (see such great games as 'Kings Quest'; 'Space Quest'; 'Police Quest' and to a lesser extent 'Torin's Passage') Tyndale Maintenance The Game** promises actual fun for all, not just those who are 'maintainly' inclined.

(Like a 'For many are called, but few are chosen' sort of scenario).
