Whenever I see pipes on a grid and liquids flowing through them then I’ll instantly be reminded of Pipe Mania, the classic hit from the nineties. The SoFresh Games developers have made their own revision which they can justifiably say is their own refreshing version. Read on to hear about this unique game.
Gameplay: Generators are pumping out flux into nano
pipes which you need to orientate so that the flux can flow through
into the Processors. Yes… the customisation and stylisation has been
done with so much detail that it’s hard to even read the gameplay
explanation! To cut through the jazz… you need to have the pipes in the
correct way so that the liquid can flow from A to B.
The original Pipe Mania game was a time based puzzle challenge where
you had to connect a path to the exit before the liquid leaked
everywhere. Whereas this game is a much calmer puzzle in which you need
to utilise every grid cell before you’ll be able to pass the round.
There is a timer, but it doesn’t serve a preventative limit and instead
it facilitates their three star scoring system.
To add to this game’s distinctiveness there are filters in the form
of blockers and convertors which will change the colour of the flux.
(Much like the light colour filters which are in Luminus.)
The purpose of changing the colours is so that the processors can
receive the correct flux type. If you use the correct combiner then you
can make thus funky green code which will then override and delete
Great puzzle gaming: All in all, Megaflux is an
awesome puzzle game which will start off easy enough for anyone to play
and slowly it’ll train players to become seasoned veterans. The
difficultly is pretty well balanced and it does what the best brain
games do – it makes you think! All of it is done in a stylish Martix
stylised setup too!
Tons of free content: There’s so much free content
in this game its ridiculous! There’s a Relax puzzle Mode and then a
Time based Challenge Mode, both of which get progressively harder to
train and stimulate your brain cells. Each of the modes have stacks of
levels within them. Then there are reams of medals and you can
benchmark your score against the rest of the world on Scoreloop.
Rating: 4.5/5 Megaflux is addictive and amazing
puzzle fun. The dynamic twists add a lot of enjoyment into the
puzzles. Most importantly there’s so much free content its unbelievable
– you’ll keep coming back for more and more!
