Pipe Lord, the over-the-top waterslide platformer from Ancient Games, will splash onto the App Store for iOS devices on Wednesday, Oct. 25.
Take control of Herman and help him hurtle over deadly flamethrowers and razor-sharp spikes, duck under electric fences, and collect treasures on outrageous waterslides to achieve his dream of becoming pipe lord of the world’s most dangerous water park. If his moves aren’t quick enough, Herman explodes in a gory mess.
Collect coins and pineapples scattered throughout each level to unlock 30 different costumes, eight of which come with new voiceovers, including Drumpf, Hansel and Mugsy. If he still has some coins burning a hole in his pocket, Herman can try his luck at the glowing islands, with chances to win more coins and characters.
The vibrant, colorful levels are stylized with a retro aesthetic. All the action is set to an eclectic soundtrack, with musical genres ranging from metal to psychedelic hip hop. The Voice-Over Guy ramps up the zaniness to a new level as he blurts out lines such as, “I don’t respect myself,” and “I need a hobby!”
“Pipe Lord is the illegitimate child of our endless runner, 8-BIT Waterslide,” said Dimitre Sarkis, CEO, Ancient Games. “By combining a skill-based platformer with funky music, beautiful artwork and lighthearted humor, we think we have a game really worth experiencing.”
Pipe Lord will be available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian and Chinese for $2.99 USD. The Voice-Over Guy also speaks Italian, German, French, Spanish, Mexican Spanish, Chinese and Arabic.
