Plumbing Made Easy Without The "Plumber's Crack"

Plumbing Made Easy Without The "Plumber's Crack"

by , 6:00 PM EST, December 5th, 2002

Beyond Midnight Software has released a new app for Mac gamers, Pipemare 1.0. Pipemare is a strategy/puzzle game where the object is to connect pipes to allow for unrestricted water flow. Barring obstacles and other difficulties, levels increasingly become more challenging. According to Beyond Midnight Software:

Beyond Midnight Software today announced the release of Pipemare, a new 2D pipe building puzzle game.

The idea in Pipemare is to build a pipe that will allow water to flow from the IN pipe on the screen to the OUT pipe. You have various pipe pieces available at the bottom of the screen from which you can build this pipe. Unlike similar games in the past, all the pipe pieces are available for use from the start (they aren't given to you randomly).

Not all pipe pieces are available on all levels (or there might be very limited numbers of a particular piece). Additional challenges on each level include obstacles (walls, existing pipe pieces, frozen ground), minimum length requirements for the pipe, bonuses to tempt you to go where you really shouldn't, and an ever counting down timer!

You can find more information about the Pipemare 1.0 release at the Beyond Midnight Software Web site. Pipemare is available for US$14.95.
