  1. A decent remake and one worth the attention of puzzle fans everywhere. [Nov 2008, p.104]
  2. Pipe Mania is a decent reinterpretation of a classic game, and as a puzzler, ranks pretty high on the historical hierarchy.
  3. This has much higher frustration factor than some puzzlers, but dammit, you're going to keep trying to beat it. [Dec 2008, p.68]
  4. For $20, Pipe Mania is a solid game for fans of the classic. The lack of multiplayer is a serious misstep for any DS puzzler.
  5. A polished remake of a retro classic, Pipe Mania's extra features build on the challenging core gameplay while the broad selection of modes provides hours of enjoyable pipe positioning fun.
  6. Overall, Pipe Mania DS is a well-designed port of a classic game idea, and aside from a few control and implementation problems, is a continuously interesting title for those interested in classic arcade action on the DS.
  7. 65
    Pipe Mania tries, with limited success, to introduce a bit more to the familiar gameplay you've likely played before.
