When the local mafia Godfather needs a fearless, expert marksman for a high-intensity shootout, there’s only one person for the job… Known only by your mysterious nickname ‘The Handy Man’, you are the mob’s go-to-guy when the bullets fly on the virtual streets! It’s time to lock, load, and prepare for your latest mission.
The Handy Man is a challenging, mafia-based RPG simulation game for older teens where you take part in a series of 6 arcade-style, first-person shooting missions. You must enter high-octane, enemy-controlled areas, and eliminate all of the opposing shooters that pop up in windows, behind vehicles, around obstacles, and in every nook and cranny of each level.
Set in the 1930s, known by some as the ‘Golden Age’ of organized crime, you play the role of a contract shooter – and must exhibit a cool head at all times, smart strategy & decision making skills, really fast reactions, expert timing, very accurate aiming and mouse control skills. Becoming a top shooter also requires high concentration and a very steady hand. “It’s gonna get real tough out there!” Are you ready for action?
How to Play: Once the main menu screen loads, click on the ‘New Game’ folder to begin the action. First, you must enter your chosen name using your computer keyboard. There are three difficulty levels to choose from: Easy, Medium, and Hard. Once you have selected your preferred difficulty level, click ‘Play’ in the bottom right corner of the game screen.
Your objective is to eliminate all of the enemy shooters that appear in front of you. You begin each level hidden behind an obstacle (a car or wooden crate etc). Press and hold Spacebar to emerge from behind the obstacle. To shoot, point-and-click: To fire accurately, quickly and smoothly aim using your mouse or touchpad, and Left Click.
You must reach the target number of eliminations indicated in the top left corner in order to progress to the next mission. You can toggle between weapons by pressing the 1, 2, and 3 number keys (1 = handgun, 2 = shotgun, 3 = rifle). Keep an eye on your health bar at the bottom of the screen. If you get repeatedly hit by enemy fire, you fail the mission.
