Updated on April 24th, at 7:47: If you live outside of the US, you may be wondering where the heck this game is.
We got in touch with Disney who told us that "the game hasn't launched in EMEA [Europe, the Middle East, and Africa] yet." However, "there are plans for it in the future."
We'll let you know when it turns up
Last year, Disney took its ultra popular Where's My Water franchise to China, with a new version starring cartoon sheep and Chinese TV favourite, XiYangYang.
Now, the game is available worldwide in the form of Where's My Water? Featuring XYY.
The game uses the exact same formula as all the Where's My games, so you can expect to dig through dirt and solve puzzles to re-route water to XiYangYang. Only this time, your precious suds are used to defeat the Big Bad Wolf.
Who wears an orange beret. Maybe the Chinese translation of Red Riding Hood was a bit iffy.
It's got 80-odd levels, with three bells (ducks, basically) in each. And there are new mechanics, like fire and oil, to mess with. There are also collectibles to unlock bonus puzzles, and you can use IAPs to buy hints and power-ups.
It costs 69p / 99c and is available on the iOS App Store (at least in the US, it should be available everywhere soon), on Google Play for Android, and on the Windows Phone Store. It's also on the Windows 8 shoppe for £2.99 / $4.99.
