Pipe Mania (also known as Pipe Dream is a tile-matching (sort of) puzzle game about flowing liquids developed by The Assembly Line in 1989. You must build a path made of pipe pieces to let a green liquid (sewer goo?) flow. It's simple, original and addicting, that's why Pipe Mania was cloned a number of times.

"It goes against the grain to review a game without some criticism so let's have a look at the graphics. In the early levels they are about as interesting as could be hoped. However in the later stages the choice of colours is a bit wayward. At times the mix of yellows, greens and other yucky shades of mellow make it rather difficult to see what's happening on the screen, expecially those one way arrows. However this apart, Pipe Dream in an excellent game that manages to be both puzzling and exciting. Very easy to play but very hard to let go. Buy this game and you may never sleep againg". - Zero Magazine Issue 05 (1990)
The Windows version of the game was included in the MS Windows Entertainment Pack. In 1990 it was released as an arcade game by Japanese manufacturer Video System Co. Ltd., though with slightly altered gameplay, giving the player the task to connect a source and drain with the random pipe pieces.
