4.6/5 (191 votes)

Enough Plumbers is fantastic, nostalgic, pulse-pounding casual gameplay that is fun for those who remember the good old days and those who were born long after. Requiring logical thinking, forethought, planning, and lightning fast reflexes, Enough Plumbers is, just on its own, a fantastic platformer even without all the trappings of the days of yore.

I played the previous version/test and I like what's been done to flesh it out.

For some reason level 3 wouldn't complete when I saved all the clones, when I let most of them die it was fine.

Thumbs up for the retro atmosphere. It really feels like an old coin-chugging arcade game.

But I agree about the learning curve. It's all over the place.

Holy Macaroni!

I think this is terrific (hard, yes, but terrific). A really unique aspect of gameplay that's actually a bit of a joy to master.

I'm finding most of the levels are solveable by throwing myself into the level and developing a strategy from that, which is a good thing that most innovative and new games share.

I'm absolutely stuck on level 22 though

Level 22:

The goal is to get your flyer up into that little notch formed by the green blocks. Have your runner springboard on the enemy, over the green switch, on to the red spring, and land on the red switch. Your flyer should now be where the red wall used to be. Move your flyer into the little nook, then have the runner activate the green switch.

Really enjoyable game, with plenty of Nintendo hard. Nice game mechanic, it reminds me of "In the company of myself.

Love the sounds of the game too. I find myself charging through levels, just to hear the little voices of my plumbers.

You have to hit the red button before the green one.

A simpler time, when the gaming world was ruled by an 8-bit giant called Nintendo, and a game featuring a crazy Italian-American plumber was poised to become the bestselling video game of all time. A simpler time. A happier time. A time before some stupid hedgehog ruined everything.

...Grinny, are you aware that one of JIG's staff deliberately uses the name of that "stupid hedgehog" as one-half of his username?

I'm not sure what's up with level 10 but I've cleared it 3 times now and it won't advance. My guy flies off the bottom of the screen, does no fly by on the front of the screen, and the rest of them just dance around the flag indefinitely.

I'm having fun with this game and want to keep playing it, any idea on what's going on?

Geez, got all the way to the final level without help but I can;t for the life of me figure out what I am supposed to be doing.

Here's what I've tried:

I thought if I could keep all my clones alive, we could weight the bridge enough for the boss to get burned by the fire, but that doesn't seem to work.

I've tried jumping on the boss's head too.

For the final boss:

Watch what happens when your clones get hit by the boss's fireballs. Then, watch what happens when those clones are standing on the bridge at the time.

Here is a screenshot of how my Level 10 just hangs. I noticed on one of the earlier levels it did the same thing, I think it might have something to do with the guy zooming off the bottom of the screen vs. up the top.

Did anyone else think it was meant to be satirical towards the many MANY mario clone games/titles?

The title, the concept, the many inevitable "oh no!" screams?

Also, it'd be nice if there was a "score" of how many clones you kept alive when you reached the end of each level. Not that it would matter too much for me as most of my "scores" would be 1, but it'll be something for people to compete towards.

I hated Sonic too. Mario rocked, but to me Sonic was a hysterical game that was more for watching and admiring how cool and fast it was and less for actual playing. Or as we used to say in those day, "Sonic is for comforting those who suck at Super Mario". :)

This game rocked. I'd love to have many more levels, I think there is room for tons more puzzles, different upgrades, bosses. I really liked how all the sounds (not the music) sounded like they were done with someone's voice. i didn't find it too difficult, but not so easy that I breezed through, definitely had to think on a number of levels, and the final one took a little while to figure out. Really fun!

Great job!

Don't hold to the right, if you let the new guys spawn without holding an arrow key down they will always fall straight down. Don't give him a direction to go in and he'll fall through the fire balls and hit the lower right floaty bottle.

Not to be a pain, but it just reset my progress AGAIN! I redid all the levels up to Level 21 or 22 earlier today, and I came back to play just now and I'm back at Level 1. Does anyone have any idea why this keeps happening? I'd like to finish this game sometime, but it apparently doesn't want me to. I'm hesitant to start it up once again, since this seems to be a persistent thing.

The symptoms of the reset are that I have to click the play button a lot to get into the game, and it also appears to have happened after each bug fix that's been reported on here.

[I have updated the game twice recently and given the game new filenames to prevent a caching issue, both just prior to you leaving comments saying your progress was lost. It's possible for a Flash game to save your progress regardless of what the filename is, not sure why it matters here. -Jay]

Wanna finish the final level in about 10 seconds?

Don't run through the flag to get to the princess, just go to the left, jump in the pipe and end up on the right side of the screen. Go see the princess, she'll turn into monster but flag stays there. Go touch the flag, you won.

Really awesome concept and cool levels, think it wasn't quite ready for release, though. In addition to the original bug that randomly wouldn't let you finish levels, and to having it also forget my progress twice, the game just runs too slowly. I did finish it, but as soon as I got more than about 5 guys out, it would just crawl, especially on levels with lots of fireballs: suggest at least making those non-animated spikes instead.

There's also a weird bug with the scale buttons. With one guy on one, it reads 9, but with two guys, it reads 7. It keeps reading one extra all the way down to 1, and reads 1 for either 8 guys or 9 guys.

Additionally the notDoppler add in the bottom right covers up the flag or power ups in a couple of levels.

Anyway, very need concept and cool game, just needs more polishing. Hope there's a sequel; I'd love to see more levels, and especially a level editor!

Thanks for explaining my resetting problem, Jay. It was just kind of a bummer to go back into my game thinking "oh I think I'll finish it tonight... or start all the way back from the beginning... again..."

Meanwhile I've replayed all the way up to level 24, and am determined to beat this thing before it can reset on me again :)

It took me a few days, but I beat the game. It didn't really feel short, because each level used the "clone" technique and combined it with others to provide its own unique puzzle. Occasionally, I'd make a tiny mistake on a level that resulted in all my clones (or the only one I had) dying, resetting the level. Fun game overall. :)

I decided on a whim to replay this game tonight, but it's acting a little strange. All the levels are locked again (which is not the weird part), and I get an Adobe popup with every level start and restart saying that jayisgames would like to store information on my computer. Since I have limited computer knowledge, I erred on the side of paranoid and denied access, which results in none of the levels getting unlocked after playing. I've never had that popup on this site before with any game, so at the risk of making myself look like an idiot I wanted to ask about it and check to make sure it's okay to accept.

[It is not a problem to accept, in fact, if you play a lot of games here at JIG you will need to accept and even expand the size of the allowed local storage given to JIG for Flash game saves. The reason is that Flash stores game saves by domain, which means ALL game saves for the games we host are stored in the same place. You can right-click and choose "Settings" on any Flash game hosted on JIG to increase (or change) the size of local storage. If you're a frequent visitor to JIG, I recommend allowing unlimited. You should never have a problem with that setting since Flash game saves are all relatively small in size. This was such a good question, I've even updated our Support page with this frequently asked question including my response. -Jay]
