Will someone please tell Disney to stop passing the Where's My Water property around the corporate offices? After the physics puzzle game and its cutesy alligator mascot gained a nice little fanbase on Android, Where's My Perry was released last year, with a somewhat odd tie-in to the Phineas And Ferb cartoon. Now Disney has reached all the way back to Mister Mouse himself, and Where's My Mickey is available on the Google Play Store. The standard version is a buck, while the "XL" edition intended for tablets goes for two.

The gameplay is the same as it ever was: swipe away sand and dirt to allow water to flow into a reservoir, now represented by Mickey Mouse's beach bucket. To keep things fresh, Where's My Mickey adds some new weather effects to help clear the blockage and create some interesting puzzles. Winds blow and crack their cheeks, cataracts and hurricanes (or at least small thunderstorms) spout and drench the beaches.

The game includes a few simple cartoons based on the new Disney Channel series, with a retro-futuristic art style for Mickey and his gang. (Unfortunately, the ear-piercing castrato voice has remained intact.) The XL app gets access to 20 extra levels, and both have six Goofy-themed levels, with more available via an in-app purchase. Like the previous Where's My Water games, more content will be added in future updates. It's a shame the developers decided to split the app up into phone and tablet versions - I thought we were over that.

    Disney: ''Where is my Money?!!?!''

    such a shame, where's my water was such a fun game, then 3 in app expansions, and now two "knock off" apps.

      It's the same with Angry Birds. Thing is, these are not just mere pointless rehashes...they introduce new game mechanics. Where's My Water?, Angry Birds and Cut the Rope are arguably the three most successful and popular mobile games, and it only makes sense for them to create "knock-offs" and building on their respective brand names.

        oh make no mistake i know why they are doing it. however my concern is i dont feel like im getting the same amount for my money. ive bought everything except the new allie stuff and this mickey mouse game.

        When i bought the game originally i got a long bunch of updates and added content which prompted me to buy cranky when it came out; then cranky just kind of died off, wheres my perry i could care less about the characters (they actually annoy me) but the gameplay is there so i suffered through it. mystery duck added a twist on all the same old levels...

        i guess im just looking at it as though the original game gave so much for only 99 cents and they have yet to release something that is as worthwhile... regardless ill still keep playing them all as i love the game style :/

    And Disney's recently released "Where's My Summer" is only available for iPod Touch / iPhone. Is each game written from scratch? By now I would have expected them to have an engine of sorts, where all they have to do is switch out the assets for each new game in the series.

    It's kind of lame that they released a separate app for tablets. in the other two, IIRC, a single app works on both phones and tablets (as Android apps are supposed to do). Can't stop the money grab I guess.

    Oh Disney. It's time to let the "Where's my..." franchise percolate a little. Give it a couple years and then release another. In the meantime, release cool new different things that I want!

    Walt lobbied congress for an extension to copyright to prevent a diminution of his characters by others. Now copyright is ruined (what 75 years plus the life of the artist, thanks to the mouse protection lobby) and Disney is doing exactly what Walt was afraid others would do. The problem is that most of the public eats this crap up

    I don't mind having a new app for each game, but having a tablet version is just a ripoff and insulting. I won't be buying these until they're magically merged. (And I own and tri-ducked all the expansions and such for the previous games)
