The story of the game is based on the cartoon Phineas and Ferb, featuring the platypus secret agent Perry, ie. Agent P. Perry is stuck in his transportation tubes. The goal of the game is to guide water or steam to the generators powering the tubes, so Agent P can go through them.
At the early stage of the game, it is very similar to Where’s My Water. As you move up the levels, you will see more challenges, such as hot and cold lasers that turn the water into steam and ice, vacuums that suck water in and turn the water into confetti. To win the game, you have to either change water into steam or ice, or combine substances to create explosions. Along the way, you want to collect as many gnomes and spy folders as you can. They will help you unlock bonus levels.
There are more than 200 puzzles across 4 chapters.
What Kids Can Learn:
While playing the game, kids gain problem-solving skills. They are exposed to physics and chemistry concepts while creating explosions, or changing water into steam or ice. They also get a feel about gravity’s impact on liquid flow when trying to guide the water or steam to the generators.
How parents can help:
- Encourage kids to observe how water moves in everyday life, while washing hands, taking showers, or swimming. Ask them compare their observation to what they see in the app – do they move in the same way? Or differently?
- Go play in a creek, dig a tunnel to bring water from one point to another, build a barrier on the tunnel and watch how water behaves.
- If there is no creek nearby, make a tunnel in the sandbox… or go to the beach… There are plenty opportunities to play with water in summer.
Where’s My Perry is a challenging physics-based puzzle app. Kids will learn basic science concepts and gain problem solving skills. With funny stories and engaging graphics, kids will sure have a good time with this app.
I suggest this app for kids 6 and up. It works on iPhone, iPod, and iPAD. It is $0.99 at App Store.
