Pi and Pa. Are they boy or girl? Surely they are neither cucumber nor tomato. They are sooo clever. They left their prison cell behind. They see their balloon above the roofs. They know: No one will stop us! Never! But they have no time, the police is not far away, their shackle is tight and heavy.

PiPa is a cooperative jump’n’run game for 2 players. Lets go up. Lets go to the roof. One player may hold the other. Do not draw your buddy down to the cobbles! Pi and Pa stick together... Cause they have to!

-- German Description --

Pi und Pa sind keine grünen Jungs oder Mädels. Sie sind clever. Der Knast konnte sie nicht halten. Ihr Ballon wartet über den Dächern. "Kein anderer hält uns auf! Auch wenn die Zeit drängt. Auch wenn die Fessel drückt."

Ein Geschicklichkeitsspiel für zwei Spieler. Es geht hoch hinauf. Pi und Pa halten zusammen - weil sie müssen!
