Pipe-Mania (DS) Review

  • Summary: Pipe-Mania is an interesting game, many will pass it off as shovelware but it actually turned out quite well. It is the first DS game I’ve played in a while that tacked on interesting touch screen effects without hampering the gameplay, and the game’s puzzles force you to find inventive ways to the finish. Even when you think you’ve seen it all, the game throws in a few interesting twists to keep the game fresh.

Pipe Mania Review

  • Excerpt: At school we had special lessons focussed on careers. The idea was to give us all an idea of what we were going to do once we'd left education. At the time there seemed to be some kind of push to get kids into professions such as carpentry, electrical engineering and plumbing. The hook was that these professions weren't going to die out and that you could earn a decent amount of money.

NDS Review - 'Pipe Mania'

WorthPlaying
1 November 2008
  • Summary: In Pipe Mania you must lay down a pre-ordained set of pipes on a tiled grid in order to keep the constantly flowing Flooze moving for as long as possible without it spilling out. The game requires quick thinking, hand-eye co-ordination, forward thinking and keen spatial awareness.

  • Conclusion: Pipe Mania, though not appearing to be one of the better puzzlers out there just from looking at the box art, is really a rare diamond in the rough. This game provides all of the right combinations of gameplay and the right amount of gameplay (a lot) to give puzzle fans a great puzzling experience.

The Review Busters
9 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Pipe Mania is by far one of the best puzzle games on the Nintendo DS. For what you pay for there is enough in this game to keep you occupied for weeks, maybe even months. Fans of the original game will fall in love all over again while new puzzle gamers will find out what they missed out in the past. I highly recommended this game to anyone that enjoys puzzle games.

Pipe Mania Review

  • Summary: Puzzlegames haben da so etwas an sich, was es ziemlich schwierig macht, sie einzuschätzen. Grundsätzlich liegt das in ihrer Natur. Der Grat zwischen einem süchtig machendem Spielprinzip und einem todlangweiligen Titel ist in der Tat sehr schmal. Wir haben Empires Pipe Mania für euch getestet. Lest in unserem Review, ob der Titel eher zu den Durch- oder Fehlstartern gehört.
