After the deceptively interesting complexity of 'PipeMare' turned out to be trial and error tedium, the simplicity and speed of 'MacPipes' beckoned. Nice simple clear controls. Dealing with pipe pieces in a predetermined sequence one at a time requires some quick thinking ahead, and MacPipes gives the player more opportunity to correct mislaid pieces if you're fast. MacPipes also doesn't have the contradictory restrictions of both a shortage of pipes, and a required length of pipe to be laid. Reasonable sound and graphics. Perhaps i'm just not suited to this sort of thing, however. Though play moves faster here and one misplaced pipe isn't as likely to doom you to starting again, allotted time is very short and much of the time luck played far too large a part. So often i found the stream to contain lengthy sequences of like pipe segments. Pretty hard to build a continuous pipe if you receive a string of 4 pair of upper left and upper right corners with no lower ones or straight pieces intervening. Consistently pieces seemed to come in large bunches. I soon found my skill increasing to where i could complete a level, only to lose on that level the next try because i wasn't provided with pieces which could make a winning sequence. Maybe if someone mixed and matched elements of both games, tossed out some things, and made a game where practice and skill is actually rewarded with more wins and progress this pipe laying concept could work.

This is my first time playing this game, and I've found it strangely addictive. Great job.

I have been playing Mac Pipes since 1995. I LOVE it.!!!! The last commentator said that they provide too long a stream of the same pipes....well it just meas that you have to be able to look ahead about 15 moves. You have to create different options down the line. This is the biggest challange....creating possibilites that could use each and every pipe as it comes. I have a PC now and wish I could get a PC version . Have fun!!!! It's possible to get far into the game and I'm no genius. peace dhira d

Like chromatose, I'm certain that on several occasions, I was given sequences of pipes that did not allow creation of a winning sequence.
