Ever have ambitions of working in the cities water systems? Also feel like you were born 2000 years too late? Well Aqueducts is the perfect app for you. It is a simple puzzler that provides a well paced challenge and polished experience. Although the simple gameplay won’t have a lot of replay value, the first play through is enjoyable enough to warrant a download.
Aqueducts has a simple enough concept. Tap pieces of pipe to rotate them align them to bring water between two points on opposite sides of your screen. The game has to be played in landscape mode and there are a couple gameplay issues. For instance, it can be difficult to tap your piece as your fat fingers accidentally press the adjacent pipe. Where Aqueducts really shines is the high level of polish on the the glossy graphics and whimsical soundtrack. There is a very large amount of variety in the level design and the ever increasing difficulty level becomes an appreciated challenge. Plus a great added benefit! There is no pay to play element! Occasionally the game asks for donations but the app focuses on game play rather than a veiled money grab like most of the games out there.
Get out there and connecting valuable water sources with the roman empire. Aqueducts is a great puzzler that has a great increasing difficulty level and polished presentation to keep you tapping away.
