The Popular Puzzle Game is Sure to Please New

With a new twist to classic favorite, Empire
Interactive will heat up the puzzle game genre with the summer release of
Pipemania for the Nintendo DS, Wii, PSP, PlayStation 2 and PC. As they race
against time, puzzle game fans of all ages and experience will be able to enjoy
hours of brain-teasing fun in this frantic series of quests and puzzles that
uses updated gameplay mechanics to build on one of the most poplar franchises of
all time.

"The current generation of gaming platforms
presented a great opportunity to re-create Pipemania with all-new features that
are sure to challenge players of all ages and skill-level," said Karim Farghaly,
vice president of sales, Empire Interactive. "We are certain new and old fans
alike will find it hard to put down the mayhem packed into the new installation
of Pipemania."

Pipemania is a fast-paced puzzle game in which
players lay down a pre-ordained set of pipes on a tiled grid in order to keep
the Flooze, a constant flowing substance that speeds up with progression, moving
through the pipes as long as possible without overflowing. Players will need to
be fast with their fingers and utilize quick and forward thinking, precise
coordination, and keen awareness if they plan to survive the time constraints,
pressure and accuracy needed to navigate through the game. There is no chance
for players to let their guard down, as complication increases with new elements
as players progress through the game.

Pipemania tests players’ skills in five different
game modes – world, arcade, bonus, multiplayer, classic, and best of the all –
the original Pipemania game. Players will navigate through more than 70 levels
with seven different themes in order to build their Island World. The frantic
puzzle game offers hours of entertainment with enhanced visuals, new play
mechanics, multiple attacks and damages, various Floozes, and an army of
characters for players to help and hinder along the way. The entire game can be
played in single player or in co-op for competitive play between two players.

The original version of Pipemania was released in
1989 and followed by Pipe Dreams in 1991. It has been ranked as one of the most
popular games of all time and delivered exceptional sales with more than 4
million units worldwide, making it one of the most successful puzzle games in
