PipeDream: Rules and Instructions
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
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
