vodovod - lead the water from the house to the storage tank
Vodovod is a free game, released under GNU GPL license. Graphics and
programming are done by Milan Babuskov. This is an over-weekend project
for now, so don’t expect miracles. However, game is completely
The goal of the game is to reach the highest possible score. You get a
limited number of pipes on each level and need to combine them to lead
the water from the house at the top of the screen to the storage tank
at the bottom. For each pipe water goes through, you get 20 points and
if you fill the cross-pipe both ways, you get 60 points. At end of each
level, you are awarded depending on the skill level:
* Beginner: 100 points
* Toolman: 100 points + number of pipes remaining
* Master plumber: 100 points + 2 x number of pipes remaining
Some of the levels have obstacles where you cannot place pipes,
checkpoints through which the water must go and holes in the ground
that slow the flow. Select HELP from the main menu to get more info.
The game is playable with joystick/joypad: just move it and press
buttons when you go to Options -> Configure controls
The goal of the game is to use pipes to connect the house at the top of
the screen with the tank at the bottom. You have time to construct the
initial pipeline before the man enters the house.
For each level you get a limited number of pipes, so use them wisely.
If you make a mistake, you can place another pipe over it.
There are certain special blocks in the map:
* Blocked Area - You cannot place pipes on these fields.
* Checkpoint - Your pipeline must go through this field.
* Hole in the ground - Slows down the flow.
