Dave needs his coffee...not Chatty Cathy.
In PacMan inspired gameplay, Dave must collect all the coffee beans and make it to the coffee maker without getting caught by Chatty Cathy. A successful day results in a pay day; an unsuccessful day provides no compensation.
In between levels Dave goes home to his wife where he can do stuff around the house, but more importantly can shop online on his computer. Buy level powerups, items for around the home, and also items which their purpose is not quite clear. Of course, the wife has items that she wants you to buy...like that new wallpaper that Dave doesn't think they need!
With retirement approaching in 30 days Dave must make as much money as possible and balance his purchases between needed powerups to get him through the day, purchases to keep his wife happy, and items to keep him from getting bored in his retirement.
