"Bit of pipe" game for Nokia phones

Great puzzle game from 1980's is here!

This is a reincarnation of "Bit of pipe" game from 1980's. Bit of pipe was originally published as a program listing for Commodore 64 computer in a Finnish home computing magazine MikroBitti in May 1989. Now it is available for DCT-3 phones, too!

"An explosion has ruined a pipeline on the chemical plant. You are the only who can prevent the disaster and build an temporary connection through the explosion area. However, the pipe pieces are so heavy that you cannot carry them around: the only thing you can do is rotating the pipe pieces in place and try building a solid pipeline that way. The larger amount of fluid is collected, the larger will be your score."

Game controls [use 3(6)...c(n) on Nokia 5510]:

 3  Move the cursor

UP/DOWN  Pan the display vertically

Use the "fast forward" mode to speed up the fluid flow when you are finished with your pipeline and do not want to improve it anymore. The tank level () indicators blink when "fast forward" is active.

CAUTION: Trying to modify the built-in firmware of a mobile phone may make it practically unrepairable. This applies especially to phones that does not have a separate EEPROM chip for settings and calibrations (e.g. most Nokia 3xxx phones). Before trying to update the flash memory, you need to understand the functions of your flashing program and the whole flashing process, including any checksum updates required. NuukiaWorld does not give any support in flashing-related questions.
