Pipe Dream v1.1

Even before the official LucasArts Windows port of Pipe Mania (which became part of the Microsoft Entertainment Pack for Windows) there was another one, one that is in many aspects better. In screen layout and graphics, this one is closer to the Amiga/DOS original. The graphics are more compact (the window is a lot smaller), yet more playful, compared with the rather abstract LucasArts design. The plumber looks a bit sick in the Windows palette, and the score display is a bit haphazard, but it's still good.

From gameplay, this one seems easier than the other versions I have played. This may be seen as good or bad, I liked it that at least in the lower levels I could easily fill the screen with winding pipes, after all that's the main fun of the game.
