How to Play
PipeDream is a classic game in which a plumber tries to lay pipe
before a gushing stream of water can overwhelm him/her.
The board is a grid in which each square can contain a single piece of
pipe. The next few pieces which the plumber can use are shown on the
right. Only the bottommost piece can be placed, but
after it is used the stack of pipe pieces will fall down and a new
piece will appear on top,
To start playing, click on the board. After a short delay, water will
start flowing out of the starting piece. Click on the board to place
pieces of pipe. Place them carefully, because there is a small time
penalty for replacing pieces.
A level is cleared by getting the water to flow through a certain
number of pipe pieces. The remaining pieces before the level is
cleared is indicated at the top.
- Water through a piece: 200
- Water through a cross piece both ways: 500
- Replacing a piece: -300
