App of the week : Where’s My Mickey?

Disney is at it again!This time with a blend of old and new.
The legendary character that started it all is the latest star of Disney’s successful line of gaming apps.

Disney Interactive said today that it would release Where’s My Mickey? on Thursday, June 20, the latest entry in the puzzle series that began with Where’s My Water? in 2011. It will release the game simultaneously on iOS, Android, and Windows tablets and PCs. The game’s eye-catching art will be based on the new series of Mickey Mouse shorts that Disney announced in March; more of these new cartoons will debut on the Disney Channel at the end of this month.

If you’re currently addicted to Where’s My Water?, you’re not alone: Disney said this week that the puzzle game has been downloaded over 200 million times and is played by 85 million active users every month. Where’s My Mickey? doesn’t just swap out Swampy the Alligator for a more famous face; it also introduces new gameplay. You’ll have to learn how to fill clouds up with water and make wind blow in the right direction, all in service of getting Mickey his much-needed liquid refreshment. Another bonus mode isn’t about delivering water, but a puzzle game in which you push clouds together while avoiding obstacles.

Each set of 20 game levels will be wrapped with a cartoon intro and outro. Three such “episodes” will be included in the app when it goes live, with two more episodes starring Goofy available as in-app purchases. In addition, an extra set of “XL” levels for tablets will be included in those versions of the game, with new puzzles designed for large screens.
