Waste

JohnBFrom long-time casual game creator Terry Paton, Waste is a simple but highly-polished puzzle game featuring every child's two favorite things: monsters and goopy green sewage! The undeniably cute release combines quick-action puzzle solving along with a little bit of old fashioned error-driven pressure, forcing you to make decisions that are not only efficient, but economical, too. It's an easy game to pick up and play, no matter what mood you're in or how long your "coffee break" happens to be!

waste.jpgWaste features a cistern at the top of the screen that contains a bit of sludge. Below is a 5x6 grid of pipes, each of which can be rotated with a simple tap. You can also drag rows and columns in any direction, adding another layer of complexity to the strategy. The goal is to line up the pipes so everything drains out the bottom of the screen. The catch is that each move you make causes the cistern to fill a bit more, forcing you to think before you start wildly flopping pipes all over the place!

Waste has a classic sort of feel to it, drawing design elements from arcade games and early browser games we fell for so many years ago. The simple dynamics play off each other brilliantly. You can't drain waste without making moves, but making moves creates sewage. The solution? Be smart, be thrifty, and make heavy use of the "bulging" pipes that hold more waste than regular pipes. By playing a steady game, you can keep the sewage at a minimum and the tiny monster at the top of the screen happy! A fantastic casual mobile game that's a perfect fit for any device.

This game seems to teeter between the absurdly easy (but still fun) or the completely impossible. The levels appear to be generated at random, which can lead to layouts that cannot be solved.

Apart from that, it's a pretty fun little time waster, like Pipe Dream without the timer.

You can slide rows and colums around, as well as rotate them, so I don't think it is ever impossible. However, I have had a problem where it stopped updating the images properly, so I have no clue what the bottom row is doing.

An "undo" button would be helpful, just sayin'
