Pipe Dream is a game about keeping unsolidified jello in tubes long enough for it to solidify. More or less.

In this movie, Jules places pipes faster than a plumber on fifteen cups of coffee and only goes as far as absolutely required to contain the goo.

Unfortunately, the annoying music played though most of the game is the "turbo mode" music, and since turbo mode makes the goo flow faster, it can't be ignored in a run that aims for fastest time. It's a good idea to just turn off sound while watching this movie.

This movie stops after playing though all stages once. After that, the set of stages repeats endlessly, not unlike Elevator Action and Circus Charlie.

This run improves upon the previous publication by 40.96 seconds by using a new trick which enables the flooz to start flowing much quicker than normal.

Please read the welcome page if you haven't already done so. It explains the rules and methods that apply to all of these movies, particularly the use of savestates and frame advance. Also refer to our Glossary to understand terms we use, such as TAS or other unfamiliar terms.
