Disney's Where's My Water? series just keeps going and going. This time around, they've added the popular Chinese cartoon sheep XYY to the mix in Where's My Water? Featuring XYY.

It's not just Where's My Water? with sheep, though. The game also makes use of all new mechanics for fire and oil in addition to water and all that other stuff, too. Power-ups are included as well, along with collectible statues that can be used to unlock bonus levels.

Where's My Water? Featuring XYY is available on the App Store for $0.99.

Pocket Gamer reports that Where's My Water? 2 has just been made significantly more player-friendly. It seems as though Disney may have realized that the game's energy system wasn't the best choice, and have completely removed it in the latest update. That's right, no more obnoxiously restricting energy meter! Those who caved and purchased the expanded energy meter haven't been forgotten, though. Players who shelled out a bunch of cash to try and get the game into a more playable state will receive 2 Monster Bundles for free instead.

The update also adds new locations to guide water through (the Bayou and Winter Woods), and is available now. Go! Play! Have fun!

Our rating: starstarstarstarstar :: Best Racer Ever :: Read Review »

While games may not be the largest percentage of apps in the App Store (non-games lead the way overwhelmingly), they are the most popular single category, with over 151,000 active games in the App Store as of this month, according to 148Apps.biz.

One could argue, and indeed I will, that games are the most transformative type of app in the App Store, bringing a quality of play to iOS devices previously impossible to achieve. As 148Apps staffers have been heard to proclaim, there are over 1.2 billion thumbs waiting to play games on these crafty little devices.

Of course, there have been landmark games since the App Store went live in 2008, titles that create, extend, and improve on the current state of the art. Here then, are the top 20 of those games, as chosen by your App Experts at 148Apps.

Doodle Jump - This one started the jumping game craze, inspiring a host of clones and imitators along the way.
Angry Birds - Need we say more? The grumpy avians have taken over the public consciousness.
Tiny Wings - Not just another bird game, Tiny Wings showed us how one mechanic, brilliantly executed, could take an unknown designer to untold heights.

Candy Crush Saga - Good heavens we still get a lot of invites for this casual, money-printing game.
Clash of Clans - Say what you will about free to play, but this game has gotten it right.
Tiny Tower - Nimblebit hit the jackpot here with a smart combination of tower building and free to play retro gaming.

Temple Run - If anyone deserved to have a huge hit, it's the folks at Imangi Studios, who have been pushing the boundaries of quality gaming from the beginning. This one created the 3D endless runner genre at a breakneck speed!
Puzzles & Dragons - Another free to play darling, this one gets all the elements right to keep players entertained and paying.
Where's My Water? - Disney's breakout hit, with a new IP (intellectual property) and a fiendishly addictive mechanic.

Pocket God - 47 updates later, still going strong and keeping kids of all ages entertained and laughing.
Minecraft Pocket Edition - The surprise PC hit the iPhone like a ton of cube-shaped bricks, letting crafters and miners of all stripe build and explore on the go.
Words with Friends - Scrabble with people you know. What's not to like? This one started the "with friends" genre with a bang.
Draw Something - Super successful, super quick, leading Zynga to buy the developer for a landmark price.

Infinity Blade - This game set the bar high for utter gorgeousness and a fighting mechanic that still sees itself in current games on the App Store, some two and a half years later.
Canabalt - Heard of the endless runner genre? Canabalt started it all with a one-touch game that exploded onto the scene in 2009 and has remained in the collective imagination ever since.
Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP - This one proves again and again that the indie spirit can be captured and distributed via mobile, with a game that may never have gotten noticed on the bigger consoles.
Galaxy on Fire 2 - This space exploration and dogfighting game set the standard for utter gorgeousness, as well as finding a way to build a space sim on a tiny mobile device.

Spaceteam - Don't forget to flush the four-stroke plucker! Wait, what? Play this game with a few of your (drinking) friends, and you'll see what multiplayer party games *should* be like.
Real Racing - Still the gold standard for racing games on a mobile platform, the original game hit the starting line in 2011, with sequels upping the ante on visuals, controls, and profitability.
Super Hexagon - If you hate yourself, play this brutally difficult yet strangely compelling arcade game and thank indie developer Terry Cavanaugh in the morning.

Posted by Jeff Scott on December 13th, 2012

148Apps got a chance earlier this week to talk with Bart Decrem, SVP of Disney Mobile, and their plans for the holiday app push. Disney has some big plans in the coming two weeks.

Mr. Decrem shared with us some great growth numbers, showing that daily users of Disney Mobile games has grown six fold over the same period last year, up to over six million daily active users. In addition, Where's My Water? has now seen over 100 million downloads shared between it's free and paid versions.

But the really exciting stuff comes from the app updates and new releases planned over the next couple weeks. Here's a quick rundown.

New Title: Monster’s Inc. Run has been created in partnership with Get Set, makers of the great Mega Run. It'a a level based runner this time featuring characters from the Monster's Inc. movie. This is out today!

New Title: Nemo’s Reef This one, is odd. But a city builder with Nemo as the central character is sure to grab fans. This will be out on December 20th.

Where’s My Holiday? is a new release, based on the Where's My? franchise and includes characters from both Where's My Water? and Where's My Perry?. This free holiday-themed app is expected on the 20th as well.

Where’s My Perry? update launching 40 new levels featuring Dr. Doofenschmirtz. These new levels will be available as an in-app purchase for $0.99. We'll also see 20 new free levels. These are available in the update that goes live today.

Temple Run: Brave King Fergus (Merida’s Father) is added to the game and can be unlocked with 500,000 coins.

And finally, Avengers Initiative updated with a second episode with Captain America as the playable character available now.

Where's My Water? Joins Phineas and Ferb in the Upcoming Where's My Perry?

Posted by Carter Dotson on June 5th, 2012

A day after they announced Temple Run: Brave, Disney’s announcing another popular iOS title that’s being repurposed with a license. This time, they’re staying in house, as Where’s My Water? meets their popular cartoon series Phineas and Ferb in the upcoming Where’s My Perry? This game features Perry, who’s apparently a secret agent platypus (because of course he is), who has been summoned to his secret headquarters. He just keeps getting stuck along the way, and players guide water to where he’s trapped in order to free him.

Where’s My Perry? isn’t just a reskin with new levels, new gameplay elements are coming along as well. There will be new Crazy-inators that can change the properties of the water to ice or gas, that should bring some interesting new puzzle ideas to the table. The game willl feature additional voice acting from the cast of the show, and special animated sequences added to the game. Where’s My Perry? will release late this June.
