Pipe Push Paradise – Xbox One Review

Much as my better half wants me to participate in DIY, I’ve never really gotten into plumbing so this is probably the closest I’m going to get.

Essentially this is a top down puzzle game where you need to position pipes to keep the water flowing, a little in the vein of a game from my past in pipemanie, simple in concept and look but a lot more challenging when you put it into practice.

The puzzles initially start off fairly straightforward but ramp up in difficulty fairly quickly (unless its just me that isn’t seeing the solutions), you can restart the level at will if you get stuck and have a rewind button to roll back your previous move.

The roll back come sin very handy when you inadvertently push a pipe against a wall and end up not being able to move it.

The game is set on a tropical island with areas gradually unlocking as you work your way through the game fixing the broken plumbing which was the responsibility of your missing Grandfather, that’s about as complex as the plot gets.

I was expecting a little more story to get my teeth into and to work my way around solving puzzles to discover what happened as the storyline expanded and the islands and puzzles along with it however there is very little in the way of storyline as you work your way through the game, barring a few rather odd conversations there is not too much there.

The game has an endearing charm to the graphical style but its definitely not going to win any awards it just has its own quirky style.

The game is made up of 47 puzzles which will unlock over time and generally get more and more taxing.

If you like puzzle games then this is likely up your street, its great if you just want something to drop in and out of when the mood takes you, the price is reasonable at £8.99, for all you achievement hunters there are 14 to be had here for a total of 1000 gamerscore.

Overall this is a fairly simple game which will challenge and is fairly enjoyable for the price, definitely one for anyone who likes a puzzle.

Thanks to Digerati for the review code.
