Description of Pipe Dream

A very addictive puzzle game, Pipe Mania is the European release of LucasFilm's original Pipe Dreams.

The game idea wasn't new when it came out, but Pipe Mania executes the lay-random-tiles-to-form-a-pipe principle very well, and improves upon LucasFilm's version with better graphics and music. Your goal is to move and rotate pipes to connect to each other to transfer the water to a destination tile before time runs out. Some tiles have overlapping pipes, so the game becomes difficult very quickly as you must keep track of where the pipes really lead to.

If you like Pipe Dreams or fast action/puzzle games such as Tetris in general, you'll love Pipe Mania. Recommended!

What a game. I was so addicted to this.
Miss it so much. Newer versions are nothing on this original version.

I would like to get another copy of it.
I have an old PC that I would use just for this game.

If only someone could make a Windows 11 compatible version of the original I definitely buy it.

Hey, check out the recently released Beer Mania.

It's a cool remake and so much fun.

I have the original DOS version. I think it was VGA. I think it was a self booting disk though.

A PC version also exists !
I remember it was working on VGA/EGA and Hercules graphic modes!
