I am really looking forward to seeing Finding Dory on June 17th – oh yes, we will be there opening day! But to hold us all over, Disney is preparing a splashy set of mobile offerings for forgetful fish fans. The new apps include:
Finding Dory: Just Keep Swimming: Starting today, kids and families can swim through the story of “Finding Dory” in an underwater adventure for mobile devices. Players can help Dory collect bubbles through the side-scrolling mazes consisting of 13 total levels including the Reef, the Marine Life Institute, the Kelp Forest and more. Along the way, players will meet Marlin, Nemo, Bailey, Destiny, Hank and other friends as they use the ocean’s current for boosts, avoid unexpected underwater obstacles and try to earn three stars for each level.
Thanks to Disney Interactive, I got to try this game out and wow! It is so worth the few dollars that it cost. My girls and I spent hours playing it after we downloaded it. We just cannot put it down. It is so much fun! They are 3 and (almost) 5 and it was really easy for each of them to navigate – and still super fun for mommy. I highly recommend this one – it is fun for the whole family!
The Finding Dory: Just Keep Swimming app is available for download for $3.99 on the App Store, Google Play, and Microsoft for Windows 10. The first 11 levels are available today and the final 2 will be available with the release of the film. The game will also be available on Apple TV and Amazon Appstore for Android later this month.
Dory’s Reef: In this upcoming mobile game, players will build an unforgettable reef. Launching later this summer, fans will join Dory and other familiar, finned friends to explore new areas, match-3 to earn resources like shells & coins, complete their fish family collections, and create and customize their own epic reef! Stay tuned for more information on this upcoming app.
Dory, Nemo, Marlin and friends can also be found in the additional Disney apps:
Disney Crossy Road: Dory and her friends will soon be swimming across the road in Disney’s hit mobile game, Disney Crossy Road. Additional information about this integration is coming soon.
Disney Story Central: Also, don’t forget to just keep reading! Disney Story Central will include 10 new eBooks inspired by “Finding Dory,” including beautiful retellings of the film, new adventures under the sea, a joke book to learn Dory’s sense of humor and more. Download Disney Story Central to read the latest “Finding Dory” books.
Disney Jigsaw Puzzles!: Help find the missing piece! Starting today, the Disney Jigsaw Puzzles! app includes 15 new puzzles featuring key moments from the film, with an additional 30 launching later this month. The “Finding Dory” puzzles are available for $2.99 for a pack of 15 or for $6.99 for all 45 puzzles.
Disney Color and Play: Now with Disney•Pixar’s Finding Dory: Color Dory, Nemo and Bailey, and use the Disney Color and Play app to watch the drawings of the fish friends come to life. The “Finding Dory” coloring pages can be purchased in store or online, or through the app and printed at home.
