A puzzle game where the main goal is to make loops! Random pieces are presented over a board, including simple lines and corners as well as S bends and other warped shapes, of varying sizes. It is up to the player to link them up in a loop form, then moving on to the next level. Pieces can be placed on any empty space on the grid, and rotated into one of the four main compass directions.
Any pieces which are not part of the finished loop when a level is completed are left on the screen, so there is value in playing towards 2 distinct loops, to ensure that you have options depending on which pieces are drawn - unlike Pipe Dream there are no clues as to which pieces are coming next.
Three play modes are available, two of which can be played with two players. Game A is freestyle - simply make loops, gaining extra points for size and style.
Game B is about unlocking bonus boards of the game by reaching a certain score. and uses a bonus multiplier method depending on loop difficulty.
The third mode of play begins with an already made loop and then removes random pieces of it, so the player has to put them back in when they appear again. It is essentially a memory test and logic puzzle of fitting the pieces back as one remembers - although placing a piece where it seems to fit is also often effective.
Yet another great puzzle-game from 1990. Just connect pipes and if you manage to create an unbroken circle (as shown in the pic) it disappears increasing your score. This may sound simple at first - you can move and turn the pieces according to your needs - but it soon gets more difficult as the tiles get more twisted and your board will be full of pieces you never intended to drop where they are, but time forced you to do so. Pretty good game, challenging, while simple in concept.
Another nice little puzzle game that's just right to play in that little break, Loopz is a faithful PC version of classic Atari game for the Atari ST computer. The game idea is fairly simple: place random pieces on the grid to build so-called "loopz" - closed loops which disappear to make place for more tiles... so you can build more loopz, and so on. You gain more points if you are able to make bigger loopz when it closes, so it pays to wait for the "perfect" tile (similar to Tetris) that guarantees a lot of points. The game features three different play modes and a two-player option. Fans of LucasFilm's earlier Pipe Dreams should have a blast, although Loopz is much more similar to Tetris and arguably more complex. Highly recommended!
