Description (by MrFlibble)

Taking Care of Business is a rather intricate puzzle game in which you need to guide the main character, Dirk, to the exit through various obstacles (each puzzle takes up one screen). To get around them, Dirk needs to rearrange crates that are lying in various parts of the level, and use tools like dynamite to blow up parts of the floor, another tool to bash through walls, one-time ladders etc.

The puzzles get progressively more difficult but can be played in any order. The shareware version contains the firs 15 levels, the registered version has 60 levels and built-in solutions for each puzzle.
