Summary

What can I say? It's classic

The Good

I think the originality of the idea. Getting the ooze through the pipes before it spills out the end. Thats a good idea for a puzzle game. Sure there have been many clones with the whole idea being so good, but to be able to play a puzzle game like this back then was a great thing.

The Bad

I guess the graphics. After you played this game in windows with a windows clone such as Pipe Dream, then you basically didn't want to go back to Pipe Mania.

The Bottom Line

I would say, get the ooze through the pipes and don't die. Its a basic game yet it gets challenging as you go up through the levels. You should play it just so you can say you have :)
