Time Waster - Kill the Plumber'

The concept of this game is great, and it's really hilarious when it works. And it does work most of the time, but due to some buggy mechanics (or ineptitude on my part) some levels are borderline unbeatable - and basing it on not just my experience but others who have commented as well, level 12 will make or break you.

It broke me, which was a shame, because up until then I'd been having a great time and even laughed out loud on several occasions. The premise is, an insane plumber can't take 'no' for an answer, and it's your job to get rid of him by any means necessary. But you're limited by the kind of actions you can take all based on a popular Nintendo game that featured pipes, plumbers and an inordinate amount of mushrooms.

This is less of a puzzle or adventure game than it is about understanding the mechanics quickly and then acting on them in time to defeat the guy in red. It's usually not difficult to figure them out, and only occasionally would it take more than a couple of tries until that last level of the first set of levels (There are 36 levels in all). But even understanding implicitly what I was supposed to do, once I got to restarting it for the dozenth time I decided it wasn't fun wasting my time at it even for work.

You can check it out for free, and try to prove me wrong at www.kongregate.com.
