Review – Pop’s Pipes for Palm OS

by Reads (2,817)


Formerly known as Bob the Pipe Fitter, this is the first time this popular PocketPC title is available for the Palm OS. The game is played on a Tetris-style board, where pieces drop from above, and you must fit them together to make sections disappear.


The pipes have to line up, connecting together 4 or more segements in any direction or shape. You can t rotate the parts though, so you have to be careful that you don t build yourself into a corner. The game is fast-paced and very entertaining–I can see why it s such a big hit on the PocketPC. It even lets you select which buttons are left, right, and drop, which I can see being an added bonus for those with non-standard button arrangements, or the left-handed. A high-resolution version is planned, which will be available as a free upgrade to owners.

I played PP’s on my Clie NX70V and it actually looked nice and played well. The high resolution version would be great though, especially if they can find a way to take advantage of the virtual graffiti area. At first I was upset that the pipes cannot be rotated, but the game would be too easy if that was possible. The further along you progress, the faster the gamplay, they even drop in blocks to add complexity.
