Description

Gorby's Pipeline is a variation on the classic Tetris game, with elements of Pipe Dream / Pipe Mania and its bonus game..

While in the classic Tetris game you 'll have to fit the falling geometric shaped pieces together to make a row disappear in Gorby's Pipeline the geometric shapes are replaced with pieces that contain different forms and shapes of pipelines.

The game starts with a water leak at the bottom right of the screen and it's you goal to put the various pipeline pieces together in such a way that the water runs from the bottom-right to the left and disappears in one of the pipelines on the left side of the screen. If you succeed a row will disappear.

Trivia

Legacy

The same basic gameplay (linking each side of the field, Pipe Dream-style) was also used in two arcade games in the following years: Atari's Sparkz (1992), which never made it to full release, and Taito's Cachat (1993), also known as Tube-It. Neither game ever saw a home port.
