Virtual Programming (http://www.vpltd.com) has released versions of
its Pipe Mania game for the Mac and the iPhone/iPod touch. The Mac
version (which requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher) costs US$19.95,
and the iPhone/iPod version is $4.99.
Pipemania is a puzzle game in which players lay down a pre-ordained
set of pipes on a tiled grid in order to keep the Flooze, a constant
flowing substance that speeds up with progression, moving through the
pipes as long as possible, without overflowing. It tests players’
skills in five different game modes — world, arcade, bonus,
multiplayer, classic, and the original Pipemania game.
Players will navigate through more than 70 levels with seven
different themes in order to build their Island World. The puzzle
game offers nhanced visuals, new play mechanics, multiple attacks and
damages, various Floozes, and an army of characters for players to
help and hinder along the way. The entire game can be played in
single player or in co-op for competitive play between two players.
