A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

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. 

Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

A button on the main menu showcases several more apps from Disney, while this one, in particular, is tied to a popular television program, which sells merchandise in stores.

What 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.

Great matter-state learning tool for little kids!

This app can teach kids about water's three forms, and if you talk to kids about how water's forms are examples of the three states of matter, they ju... Continue reading

Great game

I love where's my perry! It's so fun and the phineas and verb twist, perfect!

What's it about?

Players are tasked to direct water to a specific point to help Perry progress to the next level in his pneumatic tubes via a water-powered backup generator. By swiping their finger across the screen and through dirt, they carve a path for it to flow (or, if it's in steam form, to float). Dr. Doofenshmirtz has set various obstacles along the way, like hot and cold lasers (that turn the water into steam and ice, respectively) and vacuums that turn the water into confetti. Along the way, players will try to collect gnomes and spy folders containing information about the show's characters and contraptions.

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. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Kids interact with water every day. Encourage them to observe its behavior in different states, comparing it to how water behaves in the app.

  • For young kids, water and sand play can be a fun way to learn. Have kids dig a tunnel to bring water to an end point. Set up obstacles along the way to encourage problem solving.
