|5/4/2004 9:28:49 AM - Massive Pipeline Update to V1.100-2|
Pipeline has just been updated to V1.100-2. This is a huge update.
The game now features 85 hand-crafted levels, including the 25 bonus levels.
A new hint system allows you to quickly and easily learn how to play the game without ever having to consult the instructions.
New objects have been added to bring even more strategy to the game. Mystery markers grant a random special object, but you can't tell what it is until you route water through it. Locked grates are impassible until you retrieve a key.
Snakes are now much more valuable because their bonus does not get reset when the chain is broken. Snakes and sprinklers now base their initial bonuses on the current level, so they remain relevant in helping you qualify throughout the game.
Some minor graphical improvements have been made - the water now animates, the sprinkler animation has been improved, etc.. The "Purchase Info" screen now shows the many levels you'll gain access to when you buy the game.
You can now store up to 15 extra lives, the RETURN key can be used to speed up the water (which is useful for quickly moving on to the next level when you know you've already qualified), the documentation has been updated, and many other small tweaks have been made.
If you've already purchased the game, simply download and install the new version, plug in your password, and you can immediately start enjoying all of the new features.
