A HALF EFFORT FROM THE TEAM OVER AT DISNEY.
Don’t get me wrong, the concept of the game is simple, there isn’t much to learn and I guess it’s aimed at kids, but most of the young ones in my family have no idea how to play it at all. The youngest person I’ve seen playing it is 15, anything below that would need someone there to guide them. It might just be the kids in my family that can’t grasp the basic science of water, I wouldn’t let it put you off trying the app with your young ones, you may have a little genius in your hands.
If you take the ‘Disney’ away from this title, you’d be impressed, it’s a compact, brain challenging game that can hold some level of entertainment for at least 15-20 minutes. Then you have to remember that Disney is a worldwide behemoth in entertainment, a billion dollar company…
This is Disney we’re talking about…
Yes, I thought the same, they have teams and teams of skilled developers and designers dedicated to this kind of stuff, yet the intro animations aren’t even high def graphics, they’re mostly pixelated.
Gameplay is basic, and the levels are quite extensive, there are some in-app purchases to unlock other characters and level packs but no purchase is needed to enjoy the main game and the huge amount of levels it holds.
Overall I’d say it’s a good game for Disney to enter the App Store with but it lacks innovation, originality and nothing is really unique, you know, the kind of things that you automatically think “ahh that’s Disney”.
Only 2 taps for you Where’s My Water, let’s hope something more exciting is in the pipeline from your creators!

Well, it’s a dull, rainy day here today, I have a few spare hours at my disposal, a few hours I thought I’d spend with you. At the beginning, I promised myself that I would fully commit myself to this blog, a way for me to showcase some creativity or skill whilst the holidays surrounded me and London was 300 miles away. It pains me to say that i failed myself, and you guys on that promise. A lot has happened since then, both personally and professionally and I feel right now at this moment, a new wave of determination to make this blog a real life thing for me has taken over, a want, a need, to make it maybe one day, a job.
Writing has always been an interest for me, I am passionate about technology and design and was luckily blessed with good taste for both, so the only natural thing for me to do is this. A blog. For you to take in my opinion, maybe argue with it, challenge it or even influence your own. Whatever it does, just reading it will make my day, the other 3 are all bonuses.
Whilst it may seem that my attention has been focused entirely on everything but this blog and the lack of posts are there to back that up yes, but, you have always been there in the back of my mind, time my friend, it’s what’s been against us. Over the last couple of weeks I have been downloading new apps, paid and free, and some old apps that have been updated with new features and even complete redesigns. With that in mind, I will be bringing to you my reviews and thoughts on all that Tap This App has to say about them. Here are just a few of the apps you will be reading about real soon.
Stay tuned, I pinky promise you that you have not been forgotten about. My time is now in your hands.
