This is a game I’ve been fiddling around with on my spare time the last few weeks. I wanted to do something that drags you in the way Zoo Keeper or Bejeweled does, so after a bit of testing I came up with this concept.

What you’re supposed to do is to connect the pink pipes on the left side to the green one on the right side. Once you do this the interconnected pipes fall away. The more pipes you remove in one move the higher score you get. If you’re really fast you can stack your combos for really big scores.

  1. 46000 something

  2. Hmm. It seems the highscores are broken somehow, I’ll look into that once I get home.

  3. Cool game.

    I was actually working on a similar idea few years back. Unfortunately back then my games used take years to complete :) I don’t think I even managed to do a playable prototype of the game mechanisms.

    Glad to see that your still cranking out new games.

  4. Very similar gameplay to the PopCap game “Rocket Mania,” except you have only one connection to make (and time runs out a lot quicker). Still, a nice little quick game (Rocket Mania takes forever to play).

    One thing you might want to do is have pipes connected to the goal turn green so you can see where connections need to be made.

  5. 5200

  6. nice game.

  7. 90797! :D

  9. I like how is switches to low quality during the animations. Smart.

  10. There is a slight problem with when it randomly gives pieces around the green that are impossible to link from pink to green (IE: the L shaped tubes all around a green in the corner. Its physicly impossible when the two directly touching and the one diagonal from it are facing opposite directions.)

  11. Well, I’ll be damned. I thought about the possibility of “impossible moves” when I made it, but then forgot about adding in the code to stop them from appearing.
    Thanks for pointing it out!

  12. No fair i beat the highscore like 10 times and nothing happened… Also im amazing or something because 3 times in a row there were pipes that already lead to the green dot so yea that was pretty sweet.
