Are You Feeling Thirsty?
Where’s My Water? 2 is the sequel to a puzzle game that took the gaming world by storm. With lots of new levels to play and new challenges, this version promises to be even more fun than the original. Read on to find out if gamers are in for a fun ride.
Swampy the Alligator makes his return in this instalment and the colourful character is joined by a whole host of friends such as Cranky and Allie. Each of the characters provides players with new challenges that really put their powers of puzzle solving to the test.
Swampy’s main objective is to get clean water funnelled into his shower so that he can have a splashing good time. However, Cranky has very different needs and demands a constant stream of purple goo on his dinner plate, while Allie demands steam in her pipes so that she can make sweet music. Players have to balance all of these demands and keep the water flowing in the right way so that all the characters are satisfied and they can advance to the next level.
As you would expect from a puzzle game, the challenges get increasingly tougher as you advance from level to level. The pacing and difficulty of the game are well managed and the learning curve is managed well to give players enough of a sense of achievement so that they keep coming back for more and are ready to solve the next puzzle.
Once each level has been successfully completed, it can be replayed using a whole different set of rules and goals. This means that there is virtually no end to the fun and the new objectives really keep players on their toes.
The main problem with Where’s My Water? 2 for Windows 8 is that players are forced to use their own cash if they want to advance in the game. The free energy runs out after ten or fifteen minutes and after that it is necessary to pay out if you want to go on playing. However, all of the features are good and players who are satisfied with short instalments will find a lot to love here.
