Damn those Alligators!

So, I should or would have liked to have completed my "History with Disney" blog by now; but I haven't. I had intended on tapping away on it the last few days on the trains to and from work, but Disney itself has managed to get in the way. How? Because it's not easy to crack on with it when there's the constant distraction of a certain Alligator.


No, not this alligator; I completed him ages ago. This week we got introduced to his friend Cranky!

And with 40 new levels to complete, well, I've been a little distracted.

For those who don't know, Where's My Water is an iPhone and Android game released by Disney Mobile and is the first Disney game to not only create characters and not be based on existing franchises; but also, to be good. In fact, it's not just good; it's great!! Like Angry Birds additictively great.

The concept of the game is very simple, you have to maneuver water through various courses in order to give the main character of the game, Swampy, a shower; after all he is very hygiene conscious. Throughout the game you are introduced to various tools and other liquids that have to be utilized in order to reach your shower objective; steam becomes water, poison turns water into poison, water dissolves acid which itself can eat through dirt and turn algae hard; acid and poison mixed cause an explosion! And just for added fun, there's three ducks in each level which you have to have the water pass through on the way to completion in order to really complete the level; as well as a whole bunch of time and event challenges to complete.

This week however, the game took an usual twist with the introduction of Cranky. Cranky levels are essentially the same concept, only now, its the purple posion that you have to get to the finish and through the ducks, and suddenly, water is the bad guy. This change is so simple but ingenious. It's the same enjoyable game, but totally different because all strategies have been turned on their head to get the desired result and it breathes a whole new life into an already enjoyable game.

If you like phone games but haven't tried Where's My Water yet, go try it out now!! and if you've been a fan of Swampy, you are gonna love Cranky!

The good news is, 39 of 40 levels are now complete, so the Disney blog will be back on my screen shortly.

Speak soon :)
