A man sporting a Hawaiian shirt and a strong Cockney accent berates me for me slow work in the scrapyard, which isn’t really a scrapyard but a small booth filled with piles of metal scrap and hidden clues. Find the most valuable piece of scrap and win the most credits is the game, and it’s easy to get caught up in it.
