What It Is
Where's My Water? is a physics-based puzzle game from Disney Interactive. All Swampy the Alligator wants to do is take a shower, but his plumbing isn't working. It's up to the player to guide the water around, over, and through different obstacles through the subterranean layers of earth to fill Swampy's tub. The game starts with 10 chapters, each featuring 20 different levels. There are rubber ducks you can collect in each level as well as hidden items scattered throughout each chapter. In the first levels, players can either collect the items or choose to play through. As you advance to higher levels, you must collect the ducks in order to move on in the game.
The paid version of the game also features Swampy's Story, more than 350 levels including lost levels, and more challenges. The game's additional characters include the female alligator Allie and Cranky, Swampy's reluctant friend who sabotages his showers.
Why It’s Fun
In Where's My Water?, it's all about physics, but it doesn't feel like a science lesson. This is a fun and fast game that will entertain all ages. Kids will have fun figuring out how to overcome the obstacles to get Swampy his water.
Who It’s For
The Where's My Water? app is for ages 4 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
Kids under age 6 may get frustrated as the levels become more difficult as they advance through the game.
Where's My Water? is available in both free and paid versions for iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch, and Android.
Where's My Water was introduced in late 2011 but Disney has continued to release new levels and new games under the Where's My Water brand. The latest game, released in summer 2012, is Mystery Duck, which revisits levels but introduces new, special ducks that you have to reach.
Getting the water to Swampy is only part of the fun and most players will want to try to get the three rubber duckies and hidden items on each level. The hidden items are displayed on a shelf in the game's "Collection" area with three items to each shelf. If you find all three items on a shelf, you unlock a bonus level. These bonus levels are different than the main levels and usually involve you tilting your device to move the water around the screen in order to hit the rubber duckies. These levels are a lot of fun and definitely worth replaying the main levels in order to find all the items.
