PSP Review - 'Pipe Mania'

WorthPlaying
27 April 2009
  • 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.

Pipe Mania Review

6 October 2008
  • 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.

Pipe Mania

  • Excerpt: Pipe Mania on the Playstation 2 (PS2) is a real treasure to play and review. Players get to take on the role of a plumber trying to fix the problems in various worlds. There are also mean characters who try to stop the player by attacking there pipes. No worries as it is simple to fix them. The rotating tiles (changing every single second) are quite a fascinating part of Pipe Mania.

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: Pipe Mania is a puzzle game, so it doesn't try to push presentation as far as other genres. However, the visuals are more than adequate and put on a nice show. Everything is incredibly crisp and the variety of level types shows a lot of creativity. Earlier stages are plain and feature mainly green ooze and basic pipes. As you progress through each level, the backgrounds begin to change to fit different themes.

Pipe Mania (PSP)

  • Excerpt: Die Rohrsucht ist an und fuer sich schnell erklaert. Wenn man von A nach B mit einem unsichtbar bestehenden Zeitlimit im Ruecken schnell denken und planen muss, entsteht so verdammt viel Nervenkitzel, das man unbedingt noch flugs ein Rohr, eine Schiene, eine Leitung oder was auch stetig verlegen will. Und zack! Da passiert es, der erste Fehler. Und dann folgt auch meistens schon der naechste und darauf ein weiterer - Gameende. Verloren. Argh! Nochmal.
  • Pros: + Ordentlicher Umfang, + Einfaches Spielprinzip…, + … und trotzdem aufgrund des Zeitlimits sehr herausfordernd, + Sinnvolle Ergänzungen gegenüber des Originals, + Hoher Wiederspielwert, + Charmant und liebenswürdig
  • Cons: - Wozu hat dieses Spiel eine Story?!, - Andere Spielmodi müssen erst freigespielt werden, - Nervige Hintergrundmelodien
