Disney found an unexpected hit with Where's My Water? The game and its many spin-offs have consistently hit high numbers in mobile game charts. Today, Disney is readying a full-fledged sequel, transforming its mobile hit into a free-to-play game.
The sequel still revolves around physics-based challenges in which you guide a stream of water to through pipes, but the stages aren't as distinct as they once were. Whereas the original had you choose between Swampy, Cranky, and Allie--each with their own level types--this one mixes the level types together to give more variety. Meanwhile, the new Duck Rush mode accentuates quicker decision making.
The sequel adds power-ups as in-app purchases, hence the F2P model. Kotaku has already lamented the energy mechanic that limits play, claiming it doesn't work for a game so heavily based in trial-and-error.
Where's My Water? 2 is now available on the App Store, and will be hitting Windows and Android marketplaces soon.
