    Disney's Where's My Mickey app has been named Apple's App of the Week, and as a result, it is available for free for the first time since its initial June 2013 release. Based on the popular Where's My Water? game Where's My Mickey? is a physics-based game that asks players to help Mickey Mouse collect water to progress through levels.

    While the gameplay is similar to Where's My Water?, it introduces new Mickey-based art and weather mechanics including wind, clouds, and rain, that were not available in the initial Where's My Water? app. Where's My Mickey includes five different episodes of levels for free and it also offers two additional episode packs for $0.99 as well as in-app purchases for hints.
    Where's My Mickey? can be downloaded from the App Store for free for the next week. [Direct Links: iPhone/iPad]

    Not a good App name in Ireland

    'Where's My Mickey?' sounds so wrong in Ireland, and definitely not appropriate for Kids......

    It's an OK game. I wish they had made something brand new and not just a clone of Where's My Water?

    It really surprised me when they took off the energy system in WMW2 the other month too. I think the hints will be next.

    So does "Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party", "Epic Mickey" and "Mickey's Magic Show" ... anything with Mickey in it.

    Apple needs to 17+ this stuff. Seriously. ARE YOU LISTENING, APPLE?

    I find it odd that well-established brands such as Disney feel the need to resort to in-app purchases to drive sales of their games — especially games marketed toward small children.

    Surely the Disney name is enough to entice parents to drop $4.99 or even $9.99 for a game that they can hand to their children and not have to worry about the trappings of IAP.

    Agreed, I only purchase games without IAP for my children and it's getting more difficult finding them. I also wish sites would stop promoting freemium games as free.

    no. disney is dead. mario (super mario by nintendo) is more famous and recognizable today than mickey is. and we all know that winnie the pooh is actually the mascot of disney today. mickey was a fad that came and went just like winnie and mario will one day. you are living in the past when cars had an extra window for fresh air in the front seat that you could twist, fonts were written in english everywhere on the street (now i go into neighborhoods in america and think i am in some other country), the list goes on.
