Meltdown

This game looks cool, it reminds me of bioshock and how you hack machines in that game, kinda a lot of money for it though, any one try it yet? (on the new games page)

What reminds you of Bioshock? the amazing water effects, or harvesting the little girls?


for 5 bucks? it's just another one of those 'build the pipes to transport x material to the end before the time is up'

you're exactly correct though, it's spot on the same mini-game from Bioshock where you DO have to hack the machines, but you're given the pieces to divert the fluid...

I don't know Turakm, $5 bucks for this guy? maybe us Bioshock fans should wait for that game to come out on the platform! Maybe that mini game will be part of the main one?

The color scheme reminds me of a hotdog stand.

I recommend giving Paradox 3000 a spin. Really good pipe puzzler.

Its more like the classic pipe dreams game rather than the bioshock mini game. You can actually move the pipes around and build the network however you want.

Anyone who's looking at this should try either MusicNeon (free for now) or Pirate Attack II ($0.99)

Higher production value, worth a shot, especially the free MusicNeon
