ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The comments made for the Amiga apply equally to this version. To be honest there isn't really anything to tell between the two - both are superbly implemented games with stacks of playability. It is nice to see that there are still some games which don't rely on stunning audio-visual elements to mask a total lack of gameplay.

The One
The array of options, the variety of obstacles and the password system just increase its long-term value. Even more unusually this isn't the sort of game that puts the rest of your social life in jeopardy. Instead of staring at the screen and ignoring your friends, you can actually invite them to join in. If there's life after Tetris, it's called Pipe Mania.

TOS-Magazin
Pipe Mania ist ein Tüftelspiel der Oberklasse. Durch die zufällige Reihenfolge, in der die Rohrteile erscheinen, gleicht kein Spiel dem anderen. Profis spielen auf Risiko und bauen möglichst lange und verzwickte Leitungen, die die dicksten Punktzahlen einbringen; Sicherheitsspieler begnügen sich beim Rohrbau mit der Qualifikations-Länge. Das Programm erreicht nicht ganz den Suchtwert von »Tetris« oder »Klax«, ist aber auf jeden Fall für Farbmonitorbesitzer sein Geld wert. Auf der Diskette dieser TOS-Ausgabe befindet sich ein Pipe Mania-Demo, mit drei Level.

Power Play
Wutgeheul und Freudengeschrei, durchspielte Nächte und knirschende Joysticks: Selten war ein Spiel so magisch anziehend wie "Pipe Mania" (früher "Pipe Dream"). Ob alleine oder zu zweit, erhöhter Adrenalinverbrauch ist beim Leitungsverlegen garantiert.

ST Format
But however straightforward Pipe Mania might be, there's no denying that it's one of the most addictive games on the market. If you're looking for something deep and thoughtful, you'll sprout roots in your chair before you stop playing this one.
