Weekly Time Waster - 'Pipezania'

Rate this item
(0 votes)

As you might imagine, when part of your time-wasting process is searching for games that will allow you to, well, waste time, you start to get a sense of what sorts of games will and won’t provide you with what you’re looking for. Often, a snap judgment is all it takes.

But every once in a while, you find a game whose initial look is indeed deceiving.

“Pipezania” is a fun little surprise. It’s a simple set-up; you’re presented with an inflow point, an outflow point and a number of segments of pipe. There are straight lines and elbows and the like; your goal is to create an uninterrupted path from inflow to outflow. In addition, there are a number of gems that your flow needs to pick up along the way in order for you to fully succeed.

Again – sounds easy. However, it soon becomes clear that the path of least resistance is not always the right one. In fact, it’s rarely the right one – you’re far better served by tracing Rube Goldberg-ian pipeways hither and yon all over the screen. The more complicated, the better. The difficulty ratchets up fairly quickly, but once you get the hang of it, even the tough ones won’t take you more than a few minutes and a couple of attempts.

“Pipezania” is an ideal time waster, a game that can kill a few minutes or much longer, depending on how long you want to go with the flow. Play for free at kongregate.com.
