The Retro Video Game That Starred Mikhail Gorbachev


(YouTube Link)

I think the Cold War may have kept this game from arriving in America, either that or the manufacturer didn't feel like the reference to Mikhail Gorbachev would help sell copies in the U.S.

Whatever the reason, Gorby's Pipeline never made its way to the Nintendo Entertainment System, and that's too bad because it looks like it would have given Tetris and Dr. Mario a run for their money! Anyone remember the old school video game Pipe Dream?

the game bioshock uses a version of the pipeline concept as a computer hacking minigame

seeing as how the games are take place in a somewhat steampunk setting it almost makes sense that they would have computers that are hydraulic instead of electric.

keyword almost.
