About World’s Worst Handyman:

World’s Worst Handyman is a slapstick stealth sandbox game that has players helping the hapless handyman, Doug, as he dodges workplace hazards and solves puzzles to earn enough money to save all the critters at the local animal shelter. Unfortunately, Doug is not exactly the best at his job…
