Windows 3.1? Are you sure you're not thinking of the game Pipe Dream itself? I remember playing it all the time on my old Win 3.1/Dos 6.0 machine.

Ah so it was the original Pipe Dream. I'll see what I can track it down, I know it's on my old DOS machine, but I don't have anywhere I can set that up so it's not very likely I can copy it off that to this PC.


EDIT: You're in luck! After finding numerous copes of the '89 DOS version I came across the 'Best of Windows Entertainment Package'*. But since this was released but MS, whose dictionary does not contain the word freeware, you'll have to PM me to obtain a link.


* Contains the following games:
Chips' Challenge
Dr. Balck Jack
Free Cell
Golf
JezzBall
Pipe Dream
Rodent's Revenge
SkiFree
Taipei
TetraVex
Tetris
TriPeaks
Tut's Tomb

franpa, I've got that version as well (Yes I have 3 versions of the game Tbbbbbth!). I believe that particular one is a clone of the '89 DOS version; it features the same stupid looking fat dude in overalls across the bottom.

Thanks for your consideration, but please don't revive old topics, Dace.
BTW, this one is solved -(yes, for Kissys33)- some time ago:

Here you have it:
Ms Entertainment Pack

Pipe dream is in it.


The link to rapidshare is still valid, will be for another month or so, I guess.
