Play OverviewPlay Overview

Water Me Please! (2016) is a puzzle game where you rearrange tiles to water dehydrated plants. By sliding tiles into empty grid spaces, you create a channel down which water can flow and feed the flowers. It stands out for the simplicity of the objective that disguises the deceptively complex and engaging Pipe-Mania-style brain tease.

Across hundreds of levels, you must rearrange tiles on small grids to create channels down which water can flow to replenish plants withering in the sun. Each tile has a differently shaped channel, such as a bend, a straight section, or a junction, so you can configure them to make a path from the water to the plant.

Like the physical sliding block puzzles it's based on, you move the tiles into empty spaces on the grid, but here there's the added challenge of immovable start and end locations, changing the shape of the grid and forcing you to work around them. What starts as a simple task quickly becomes more challenging as the tiles increase and the empty spaces decrease, requiring careful thought and experimentation with different moves.

The result is a game that, despite its simplicity, offers a robust challenge that requires you to approach every stage with a willingness to experiment and explore the options available. The addition of an optional time limit as well as powerups means that everyone can enjoy a level of challenge that suits them.

Play Time: This game will take between 1 hour and 3 hours to complete. There are hundreds of levels to beat, and each one can take anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes to beat. It's designed to be played for a few minutes at a time, beating a couple of levels, rather than all at once.
