WHERE’S MY WATER [IOS] – REVIEW (89%)

24 Sep

Where’s my water is a cute water based puzzle game released by Disney.

“An urban myth inspires this fun-filled game as you help guide water to Swampy the Alligator’s bathtub. Swampy lives under the city and yearns for a more human-like existence. He is especially fond of cleanliness. The other alligators do not take kindly to Swampy’s eccentricities and have conspired to sabotage his water supply.”

First off the bat, it has to be said that this game is designed by the creators of the unique Jelly Car, so immediately grabbed my attention.

This game is simple in design. You are presented with a puzzle. Swampy is in his bath tub and is looking to take his bath, unluckily the other alligators have broken the pipes, so it is your job to get the water into the pipe that will let the water into Swampy’s bath tub.

Within the level will be three ducks, if you water passes these ducks enough times the duck will be awarded to you, much like the stars in other puzzle games of this type.

This all sounds simple, but the puzzles can be complex, with not only the physics of getting the water to the pipes, you need to contend with moss that sucks up the water, acid that mixes with the water (ruins good bath water), slime, mines and many other dangerous to having nice clean bath water.

Currently, the game includes 4 areas with 20 levels in each (80 in total) plus a few bonus levels if you find a lot of the collectables. There are more levels promised, so I am certainly looking forward to these.

The game is control by using your finger to cut away the soil to aim the water in the correct direction.

The graphics and sound are excellent, the graphics of Swampy are great and the music is fun and bouncey.

On the upside:

  • Cute game.
  • Some nicely designed puzzles.
  • Realistic water effects.

On the downside:

  • Too Addictive.
  • I am not keen on the slider for moving around on the bigger areas.
  • No hints system for the tougher puzzles, so lots of trial and error to complete them.

Overall, this is a really fun and addictive puzzle game. It has the cuteness and style of “Cut the Rope”, but is truly a game in its own right. Disney have certainly hit gold with this game. This is going to become another iOS classic title.
