In addition to the new chapter, ‘Stretched Thin,’ which introduces water balloons and new physics, Disney also released ‘Where’s My Water? Free‘ which features ten exclusive levels in addition to another ten levels being released over the course of ten days, beginning with yesterday. The campaign titled ’10 Days of Swampy’ leads into the New Year and will reward players who managed to Tri-Duck it with five of Swampy’s favorite levels from the premium version of the game.

Disney Mobile announced today that ‘Where’s My Water? Free’ is now available on the App Store for Apple iOS devices, Android Market and Amazon Appstore for Android. ‘Where’s My Water? Free’ features 25 exclusive levels, in addition to another two hidden levels.
Disney Mobile is also kicking off a special promotion, ‘The 10 Days of Swampy,’ in which for 10 days, beginning today, players can unlock a new level of the ‘Where’s My Water? Free’ app each day. Players who ‘Tri-Duck’ all of the new levels are immediately rewarded with ‘Swampy’s Picks,’ five of the best levels from the paid version of the game. In addition, players will be surprised with free wallpapers on January 1st, regardless of having completed the new levels.
Where’s My Water? Free stars Swampy the Alligator, Disney’s first original character for mobile in more than 25 puzzles where players guide water through subterranean layers of earth, rock, and broken pipes, and into Swampy’s bathtub. ‘Where’s My Water? Free’ is sponsored by Zappos.com, whose brand has been integrated into the game through a series of in-game collectibles that unlock an additional bonus level.
The premium version, available for both iOS and Android, was also updated today with 20 new levels. In ‘Stretched Thin,’ the newest chapter in the story of Swampy the Alligator, water balloons have made their way to Swampy’s neighborhood, and players must clear a path and use their expert timing skills to tap and pop the balloons to release water at the right moment. ‘Stretched Thin’ features 20 new levels of challenging gameplay, in addition to new collectibles.
Since launching on the App Store on September 22, ‘Where’s My Water?‘ has become a favorite amongst critics and gamers alike, reaching the No. 1 spot on the App Store in 30 different countries and maintaining a 5-star App Store rating.
Swampy the Gator’s perpetual quest for a bath in Disney Interactive’s ‘Where’s My Water?’ app for Apple iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch and Android devices caused some temperatures to rise yesterday as 20 new levels were introduced. The second update of its kind since the game’s release just a couple of months ago, ‘Boiling Point’ introduces the element of steam to the game along with new physics to tease players through the additional levels.
In the update, steam rises and has the ability to pass through algae and turn back to water when hitting icy patches located throughout the complicated sewer system. In addition to the elements introduced in Chapter Six, the new levels also continue to take advantage of elements introduced in the second update, Chapter Five: Change is Good, in which elements such as the poison, ooze, water (and now steam) can be converted into other elements when needed to solve the various puzzles.
Also returning in the game’s update is the developers’ uncanny sense of humor. Level 6-17, titled ‘Jumping Gigawatts!’ pays homage to the 1985 classic, Back to the Future, with its initial layout taking inspiration from the DeLorean’s flux capacitor. Also returning are some very interesting alligator-interpretations of every day human ‘collectibles,’ such as the ‘all terrain marker.’
As usual, we have produced an exclusive video walk-thru of all 20 levels in ‘Boiling Point’ as well as both additional bonus levels. The video guide will assist you in getting all 3 ducks (tri-duck) in each level as well as each of the collectibles required to play the bonus levels.
You can find all of our video walk-thrus for the previous chapters in the game on our YouTube channel.

Disney Interactive and YouTube are joining forces to bring family-friendly video entertainment to the web. The alliance will bring together the leading provider of family-friendly entertainment with the Internet’s most popular destination for video programming.
Complementary online video destinations tailored to Disney audiences will be made available on both Disney.com and YouTube in early 2012, furthering Disney Interactive’s strategy to deliver the most relevant and immersive online experiences to its guests wherever they are.
Disney Interactive will produce and program the co-branded video destinations for both Disney.com and YouTube, providing a family-friendly experience for viewers across both platforms. Programming will include video drawn from relevant family-friendly content currently available across YouTube, original video produced by Disney, as well as a blend of current Disney Interactive original series, select Disney Channel programming and Disney user created content. An original video series based on Disney’s hit mobile game “Where’s My Water?” and its main character Swampy will be the first project to launch in February and will be followed by other similarly short-form, family-oriented programming.
“With online video consumption exploding and YouTube at the center of that trend, we see an opportunity for Disney Interactive and YouTube to bring Disney’s legacy of storytelling to a new generation of families and Disney enthusiasts on the platforms they prefer,” said Jimmy Pitaro, Co-President of Disney Interactive. “As we prepare to re-launch Disney.com in fall 2012, the Disney/YouTube destination will play a critical part in our next generation platform.”
“Disney has established itself as one of the world’s most loved brands,” said Robert Kyncl, Global Head of Content Partnerships at YouTube. “We are thrilled to work with them to bring amazing new, family-friendly entertainment to YouTube’s audience of 800 million users worldwide.”
