A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn about problem solving and a little bit about physics and chemistry concepts like gravity and phases of matter with Where's My Perry? The app focuses chiefly on problem solving in the early levels, asking players to divert water to the proper receptacle to move to the next level. But as the game advances, players will have to transform water into steam and ice (often multiple times) to solve the puzzle, as well as combine substances to cause explosions. Kids will laugh a lot and can exercise their problem-solving skills in the process.
Ease of Play
Like Where's My Water?, this game features a smart learning curve making it easy to pick up. Puzzles become more difficult in later levels, but success remains largely a matter of trial and error -- and players aren't penalized for how many times they try to solve the puzzle.
Violence & Scariness
Some levels feature exploding pipes. A black slime that appears later in the game will "kill" collectible gnomes, which are replaced with skulls.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Where's My Perry? is a puzzle game featuring the popular platypus/secret agent from Disney's Phineas and Ferb. Gameplay-wise, the app is similar to the popular Where's My Water?, asking players to solve puzzles so water can be delivered to operate an elevator system. There's mild violence, but it's cartoonish. Players can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
Is It Any Good?
If you like Phineas and Ferb and you like Where's My Water?, there's no question you're going to adore Where's My Perry? The game take the best elements from the show (its off-the-wall humor) and the app (its clever puzzles and excellent presentation) and blends them into a wonderfully fun and addictive game.
The acts play out as mini-stories,and are largely set-ups for Perry to be frustrated by his co-workers (again), but the banter that's added to most levels keeps the humor coming at a steady pace. It's engaging. It's clever. And even though it's a retooling of a recent game, it's done with enough new twists that it feels original.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
