Using different pipe shapes,Working Dawgs: A-Maze-ing Pipes celebrates the classic pipes puzzle game with a fun, new twist. Set on the construction site of the Working Dawgs, players will need to work quickly and efficiently to complete the challenging pipe puzzles before time runs out. Using different pipe shapes, wrenches, and even bombs, players will be able to route the incoming flow and direct it to the puzzle's goal. If the pipeline doesn't connect from start to finish before time runs out, the water will burst through to flood the Dawgs’ work site. With 80 unique and progressively challenging puzzles, players will be increasingly entertained as they save the work site from the impending water flow. Because A-Maze-ing Pipes is based on the classic pipe puzzle game, players of all ages can enjoy the colorful world of the Working Dawgs. As the player progresses through each puzzle, The Working Dawgs will help the player by delivering integral pipe pieces and wrenches. At the end of each puzzle, the Dawgs will celebrate the player’s success, or will panic depending on how the pipeline directs the gushing water. In addition, bonus points are awarded when the water is routed in the correct direction in a designated puzzle area. As each puzzle is completed, the player will be awarded points, earning them an overall construction grade. The additional challenge of earning the highest grade on each puzzle makes this game even more captivating. Collapse

    Despite all that, though, Working Dawgs is a worthwhile puzzle game. The scoring system adds a layer of nuance to an old concept, and can hook you if you like going for the perfect run for the high score. Don't let the awful, awful name make you ignore this good game.

    Working Dawgs: A-maze-ing Pipes is one of those games that - silly name aside - really does nothing wrong. The problem is that it also fails to do anything impressive enough to make it stand out among other games of its kind. This is by no means a bad game, and it's a good option if you're looking to kill some time with relaxing puzzles that won't put too much of a strain on your mind or wallet, but its relative mediocrity is what stands out the most.

    It’s hard to recommend Working Dawgs: A-Maze-ing Pipes to anyone but a tiny subset of the most ardent of pipe-laying fans—those who own only a DSi or 3DS.
