More About This Product

Overview

This application is recommended for ages 4+.

Pipes are leaking and need to be fixed or water will flood your home! As a plumber, you need to figure out the correct connections among dozens of pipes to get water to the overflow pipe... but your time is limited!

Pipes includes 48 challenging, timed levels, which range from the easy to very challenging.

To play pipes, simply tap on pipe joints rotate them, creating a continuous pipeline between the tap and the overflow pipe. In version 2.0 of Pipes, we have removed the time limit - instead of counting down, the timer counts up. This means that you can still try to get a personal best time, but you can continue playing the game even if you need more time and simply want to try to solve the puzzle!

When you believe that you've correctly connected all the pipes, press the tap at the top to see the water flow. If the water makes it to the overflow pipe without spillage, you'll proceed to the next level!

    HIGHLY Recommend. Great graphics with challenging gameplay.

    This app is very similar to "Plumber" from the Android app store, but with the extra twist of having time-limits on each level. These time limits make the levels quite challenging. I found it very hard to get past level 5, but it's still fun. It's a great time-waster, and probably something that will keep your kids entertained through dinner, which is what I use it for more than anything. :) The graphics are amazing, too.

    Tricky but fun

    This game requires a bit of strategy to play, between the 20-30 second limit and the endless potential combinations to try and find the one that works. To play, you simply tap on the pipe parts to rotate, and try to form a continuous track from the starting wheel to the end pipe. Once done, you hit the wheel to start the liquid flowing through the pipe before the clock hits 0. First level wasnt bad, and 2-3 are tricky, but once u pick up on the pattern (for me around level 4), it goes much quicker. Im now up to level 15, and it's hard to put down!

    Fun, but challenging

    This game is a lot of fun, but I agree that it is challenging. I don't know why so many people can't get past the first few levels, though - it ain't that hard!

    I am on level 14 at the moment.

    This is a waste of money

    I usually like to write positive reveiws, but sadly this game prevented me from doing so. The game does not give you much time, and the first level is too difficult for many to compleate and move on with the game. If Pipes was a free game, I still would not reccomend this waste of time to anyone. Please do not make the same mistake I did and buy the game. You will want to hurl your Nook into a wall within the first 10 minutes of attempting to play.

    :(

    Not enough time given to arrange pipes! So either something is wrong with me or they made a super frustrating game!

    19 seconds?

    What the heck. Looks good but no options. Cant get past 1st level because you only have 19 seconds. Unless this is fixed, i would not recommend even if free.
