Essentially the same as the other versions, Gameboy Pipe Dream includes a few minor modifications, most noticeably the absence of the bonus games (which have been replaced by rather tedious interlude animations which you can't skip), you can't see the piece under your 'cursor' and, most irritatingly, you have to reenter the password every-time you play the game. However, you can link two Gameboy's for simultaneous plumbing with a friend.

Pipe Dream is a superb Gameboy title that'll have you tearing your hair out with frustration! It's incredibly addictive and is an ideal way to make those train or bus journeys whizz past. Check it out as soon as possible.
Power Play
Ein Grund mehr, sich einen Game Boy zuzulegen: "Pipe Mania" spielt sich genauso erstklassig wie die Computer-Versionen. Erst ist man von der etwas fuzzligen Grafik irritiert, dann kommt man vom Spiel nicht mehr los. Vom Paßwort-Feature bis zum Zwei-Spieler-Modus ist alles beim alten geblieben - und das ist gut so.

Another portable puzzler with a slightly different approach at the same thing. One cool thing about Pipe Dreams is the way you're really competing against yourself more than anything else! Pipe Dreams is a cool version of video solitaire that will have you trying to do better!

Eigentlich beinahe überflüssig zu sagen, daß auf dem kleinen Game-Boy-Screen das Erkennen der verschiedenen Teilstücke sehr viel schwieriger ist als auf den um ein Vielfaches größeren Computermonitoren. Das hemmt natürlich den Spielfluß, läßt echte Spielfreude erst gar nicht aufkommen. Mein Tip für Game-Boy-User also: Spart Euer Geld, oder schaut Euch nach etwas anderem um.
