Out of Eight PC Game Reviews: BRAINPIPE

Re: The Pipe And The Intertubes
Joseph Vanburen gives Brainpipe a score of 4 out 5. "...visual brilliance and non-traditional subject matter. Playing BrainPipe is like traveling through the Matrix on acid...
BrainPipe is a great experiment and well worth the $14.95 that Shrapnel Games is asking for it. You reach “Confusion” as an achievement in this game - that’s a testament to Digital Eel’s sense of pushing the envelope in game design and content."

Top casual PC games of 2008

Reviewer Bob Mandel really likes Brainpipe. Here's the full text of his comment:


Brainpipe is an arcade action experience where you zip along within a curvy tube collecting glyphs and avoiding obstacles. Specifically, as you race, to avoid damage you have to dodge blorbs, posts, cleaners, slicers, twisters, glow worms, and gates. Played from a first-person perspective, you engage in real-time spatial navigation within a gorgeous physical environment that is even available in full widescreen. The eye motif that extends from the elegant menu system to the addictive gameplay is wonderful, including the “iris” you look through as you play — it will open wider and become redder when you collide with dangerous items — to display damage. The sound effects and music are also truly sumptuous. You easily control all of your actions with the mouse, with the left button allowing you to slow down or repair yourself. Beginning relatively calmly, the challenge and intensity escalates as you play until it stretches your reflexes beyond their limits. You get sucked into the mesmerizing setting immediately, and you will not want to blink or turn away for even an instant.

Re: The Pipe And The Intertubes
I'm not sure if the review from jaguarsusf.blogspot actually counts as a 'good' review, and though I would much rather that have been a review in a more positive light, still, "Brainpipe" proves to be none the less, worthy of being negatively critisized. Yet even from a negative review, the game still ranks high on the charts. Perhaps that lucky player is one of the few who has the abillity to not have their mind altered and enslaved by the 'game' known as "Brainpipe".
