In MacPipes, you play the role of a plumber working against the clock. You have 70 seconds to lay down 17 little twisty bits of pipe into a continuous pipeline. When the clock runs out, the water starts flowing and if your pipeline isn't completed you have to start the level over again.
There are two modes of play — regular and practice. The latter lets you play without the clock ticking down and is useful as a means of getting a feel for how the game works without getting shut out before the first level is over. To progress from one level to the next in regular mode, you press the spacebar after completion of each pipeline.
MacPipes has three difficulty settings: easy, normal and hard. There are 32 different levels but the game, in fact, never ends. Beginning with level 33, the difficulty (represented by the increased number of obstacles and the reduced completion time) increases constantly until level 38 is reached. From that point on, you play with the same level layout. ~ John Rawlins, All Game Guide
