“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.”
This may sound a bit cheesy a bit to say, since the game comes from Disney, but the game has a certain Disney art-style. Crisp, cartoon like visuals make each level stand out and look great, accompanied by catchy music in the background. To top it all off the game has some pretty funny cutscenes in between to fill up time. Overall you can tell that the game was taken care of in the presentation department.
Digging up dirt on the game is quite simple: just drag your finger across the screen to clear up dirt. When you do that you clear up a path for the water to flow through. You’ll have to clever, thinking your next move through rather than just rushing through and clearing up all the dirt.
The promise of the game is pretty simple: get the water to the alligator’s shower. It’s almost as simple as Cut the Rope’s premise, of getting the candy to Om Nom. But just like with Cut the Rope, things aren’t that simple.
The alligator lives underground, so your job is to clear away the dirt from point A, all the way to point B: a pipe connected to the shower. After all, all the poor alligator wants is to take a nice and long shower.
Apart from just moving the water you’ll also want to get a higher score, which is done by collecting all three rubber duckies in each level. To do so you have to “fill them” with water, as you make your way to the pipe at the end of the level. In total, the game has 80 levels divided into four level packs, and more is said to be on it’s way.
If you collect the hidden objects on some of the levels you can unlock an additional 8 bonus levels. The game really shines as a puzzle game, with surprisingly complex levels the further you progress.
It’s definitely one of those hidden gems. Of course, there’s more we can add, but we won’t go too into detail. But basically, you’ll also run into all sorts of obstacles in your way as you progress, including poison, green acid, algae, bombs, etc.
I wasn’t expecting much going into this game, but I was pleasantly surprised by the time I was done with it. Basically, if you’re looking for a quick fix, puzzle game, Where’s My Water is the game for you. Current (and former) Cut the Rope addicts should also look into the game, since it’s right up your alley. Highly recommended.
