The Lawnmower Man is an action video game based on the movie of the same name. The game features a mixture of pseudo-3D first person virtual reality segments, and 2D platform-shooting-based segments. This version of the game was released for the Sega Mega Drive, SNES and Game Boy, with a a different game being released for the Sega Mega-CD and DOS computers.

Curiously this game was originally announced as The Lawnmower Man II, many years before the film sequel was released. The number was eventually dropped.
