The very concept of the game ‘Plumber’ denotes you or the gamer as a plumber who is suppose to take care of any water pipe or sewage-related issues. Now, it seems to be a problem of overflow and lack of proper drainage. You as a plumber suppose to get down in the sewage line and arrange pipes in the correct order with also the proper water flow direction to save the place before it gets drowned or over-flown. The concept of the game is further based upon solving a puzzle where pipes are supposed to be arranged or connected in a way so the flow can be directed towards the exit.
The design of the game is quite cool as it does give you the feeling of underground sewage and you as a professional city plumber fixing and solving the big issue for a community. Then every level is consist of a complex puzzle of pipes with a wall behind. It does look like sewer water as it made like in green color. The level of water is rising as the time passing. Also, you see the gauge, the timer and the wheel knob to turn off the water to create an aesthetical view of the underground sewage system. You even see those spider webs and spider as well on those old walls to give it a more authentic feeling. The design of the game is quite convincing and apt as per the requirement of the gameplay.
The gameplay of the ‘ Plumber’ is completely based upon the puzzle where you need to join the connecting ends of the pipe but the twist is there are certain flow directions as signs on the pipe pieces. So you have to make sure when you even connect all the pipe pieces to one, all should be into the right direction of the flow that is towards down. If anyone of them is not in direction or improperly connected, it will not let the water level go down or the water flows through these pipes to avoid the overflowing. So you have to perform the plumbing work in a designated time, so if you surpass that, game over and you have to play that level again. There are a total of 30 levels where every time the puzzle becomes hard to crack and the water flow becomes tricky to tap in. With every level, time will become enemy of yours and you have to be quick. Remember to change the position or direction of the pipe segment, you just to have click on it and it will move in different directions or positions, you have to leave it in which you find it suitable to complete the puzzle.
