Now updated with a few new features from the mobile version. Customise your cement colour and look out for the super fuel power-ups!

You have been employed to fill potholes with cement. Look, it ain't the most glamorous job in the world, but it pays the bills. Keep that trusted cement blaster at the ready and keep your wits about you for as long as possible! We wouldn't want you falling and hurting yourself now, would we?

The road ahead is treacherous. We've got reports of an unprecedented number of potholes forming. Some people have even reported seeing them move. They're calling them 'Jaws holes' for some reason. That's ridiculous if you ask me.

Running low on ammo? Give that trigger finger a rest or seek out one of our randomly spawning fuel pods. No, I don't know where they come from either. Something to do with 'balancing' apparently.

Do you think you've got what it takes? One thing's clear, it's going to get messy.

Wow, I had no idea council workers had it so tough! Some of those holes really sneak up on you. It's a fun little game that plays well, not sure there's enough here for me to go back to it though- despite my rather pathetic score of 72...
