Pipe Lord, the over-the-top waterslide platformer from Ancient Games, cannonballs onto the App Store for iOS devices today.
Herman careens over fountains of flames, spires of spikes, and jumps over massive gaps to become Pipe Lord of the world’s most dangerous water park. Timing is crucial – one misstep and Herman will explode into a glorious, gory mess. Challenge is the heart of Pipe Lord, and only players who master their skills will get through unscathed.
Collect glittering coins and pineapples scattered throughout every level to unlock 30 costumes, eight of which provide new voiceovers, including Drumpf, Hansel, and Mugsy. Play mini-games for a chance at winning more coins and characters.
The environments, vibrant and stylized with a retro aesthetic, are just as wild as the dangers. The eclectic soundtrack ranges from metal to psychedelic hip hop. Pipe Lord’s off-the-wall humour lends outlandishness to each level, from Voice-Over Guy’s breaking of the fourth wall to using the power of flatulence to bounce Herman safely off of flames.
“We created Pipe Lord to be difficult and funny, so you can chuckle between the fits of rage you’ll have when you can’t pass a level,” says Dimitre Sarkis, CEO, Ancient Games. “We hope our players will enjoy mastering the waterslide courses to Pipe Lord’s feel-good tunes and outlandish humour.”
Pipe Lord is available now in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, and Chinese for $2.99 USD. In addition, the Voice-Over Guy speaks Italian, German, French, Spanish (Spain and Mexico), and Arabic.
