Disney has released a brief video providing an inside perspective of what it takes to make a hit game like “Where’s My Water?”
From the article…
Here’s what Disney is planning for tomorrow:
- The launch of 40 new levels featuring the character Dr. Doofenschmirtz in Where’s My Perry?, which will cost 99 cents, plus 20 new free levels
- The addition of a new character, King Fergus, to Temple Run Brave, which will cost 500,000 coins
- The addition of a new mini-game, Turbo Time, to Wreck-It-Ralph
- The launch of the second episode of Avengers Initiative, featuring Captain America (the first episode focused on the Hulk)
- The launch of a new game called Monster’s Inc. Run, a side-scrolling game made in partnership with Get Set, the developers of Mega Run (Disney used a similar partnership to create Temple Run Brave)
And here’s what Disney is planning for December 20:
- The launch of a reef-building game called Nemo’s Reef, tying in to the 3D rerelease of Finding Nemo
- The launch of Where’s My Holiday?, a holiday-themed variant on Where’s My Water? and Where’s My Perry?
You can find the original story and more details HERE.
Awhile back we mentioned the announcement of Swampy getting his own web series. The wait for the “Disney Where’s My Water? Presents: Swampy’s Underground Adventures” is over, as it has finally launched! The first episode can be found here :
Having been pre-occupied with other life events, I haven’t been spending as much time playing Pirates of the Caribbean: Master of the Seas. I logged in today, and was presented with some ads for 10 Levels of Frankenweenie inspired levels of Where’s My Water?.
It took me a few minutes to realize it was NOT in the paid version, but ONLY in the Free version!
Once you load the video, it gives a short intro video that we are used to seeing before each chapter of the game.
To fit the theme of the upcoming movie, the coloring is shifted to mostly black and white. I think the overall look is really sharp and well done.
I really think they did a good job of “synergy” on this, in promoting the movie with the game! I do think it is a little odd that it is only showing-up in the free version, as you would think the paid version should get it too. I would think they could even get away with having a paid in-game upgrade for additional levels. Do you have any issue with the cross-promotional efforts like this?
Where’s My Water has a hidden level!
“…there’s now a hidden level inspired by Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon, featuring a variety of pipes with twists and turns, plus three different choices of two black pipes down which the player can send the water.”
An interesting article, over at the Guardian : “Disney Mobile: ‘Somebody’s going to build a game that reaches 1bn people’“. Entering into the market of China, a company could reach 1 billion people. Who will be the first company to reach 1 billion? Will it be Disney or Rovio Mobile?
Gamasutra is reporting that Disney’s “Where’s My Water?” is 25 billionth App Store Download
The Apple App Store today hit 25 billion apps downloaded overall, by more than 315 million iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices worldwide.
The 25 billionth app to be downloaded was in fact a game — the free version of Disney’s popular Where’s My Water? — by an iOS user in China.
There are currently over 550,000 apps available to download from the App Store, and more than $4 billion in total has been paid out to iOS developers by Apple.
I’m a big fan of the Where’s My Water? app and now the DisneyStore.com is featuring Swampy from Where’s my Water? You’ll find Swampy on shirts, mugs, iPhone cases, and more!
When we first started with “Where’s My Water?”, we were following the story of Swampy. The game has expanded to give a little hint of Cranky, another alligator. You get access to five levels, but will need to pay another $0.99 to gain access to more. Cranky’s Story is kind of an “opposite world” to Swampy. In Cranky’s Story, water is not desirable and becomes your enemy.
Once you get the update and launch the app, you’re notified of the addition of Cranky’s story.
We start with “Cranky’s First Course”.
There is a teaser of the “Hunger Pains” levels, but we’ll have to pay to get access to those! Starting Cranky’s First Course, we are presented with Cranky Challenge 1.
Cranky Challenge 1 Details:
- Level 1-7 : “Drain It First” – Triduck the level…but with Cranky Ducks!
- Level 7-4 : “Balloon Bridge” – Triduck the level without using the balloon.
- Level 2-11 : “Double Jump” – Run out of water without getting any of it to Swampy.
Let’s get the party started and play these new levels! You’ll immediately notice that it looks very familiar, but with a Cranky twist. You are play with purple acid instead of the water that you are used to.
To gain access to the rest of Cranky’s Story, you need to do an “in-app” purchase. It is intereting that they chose to do an in-app upgrade/purchase, instead of doing a separate app purchase like Angry Birds Seasons or Angry Birds Rio.
Official Release Notes:
What’s New in Version 1.3.6
Thank you for playing and for all of your feedback! We have resolved crash bugs related to the Cranky’s Story update, and have fixed other minor issues to optimize the overall gameplay experience. Coming soon – more free updates to Swampy’s Story!
Now test your skills with “Cranky’s Story”! Enjoy five of these all-new puzzles for free!
Cranky is the toughest alligator around, and he has worked up an appetite from sabotaging Swampy’s water supply. He eats anything, especially all the rotting and disgusting junk found in the dumps and sewers. Cranky will not eat vegetables however, and now his food is covered with vegetable-like algae. Use the dirty purple water to clean off Cranky’s plate so he can eat!
Cranky’s Story is an in-app purchase with more than 50 super-challenging puzzles, including Cranky’s Challenge – four unique puzzle packs with 16 special levels for the most-skilled puzzle solvers.

Rating:Official Site: Disney’s Where’s My Water?
I previously reviewed Disney’s Where’s My Water? for the iPhone, and gave it 5 stars. Needless to say, the game is essentially the same on the Kindle Fire. Due to the similarity, I would recommend reading the iPhone review for more details, and I’ll talk a little about the differences here.
You’ll notice it has the same screens that you may already be used to, here with the holiday theme due to the time of year.
