Hydropuzzle is a surreal superhero parody shaped into a short text puzzle adventure. You don't outrun express trains and you don’t fly through the skies though. You rather use your brain and your smartphone to hack through the story.
A summer heat wave, a whole city mysteriously running out of water, an enigmatic professor, an evil doctor, a brave king from some desert nation, a drunk gateman, radioactive fish, a cyber-crocodile... and YOU - tech-savvy superhero with your brain as your primary weapon. How do all these things connect? Where has all the water gone?

Ratings and Reviews
Most enjoyable challenging puzzle in a long time!
I enjoyed this app immensely and highly recommend anyone who is up for a challenge to take it on! I loved the style and inspirations this was based on. A lot of thought was put into each puzzle and hint, and unlike many, you have to work for the solutions, with nothing being a giveaway like in many puzzle apps. BRAVO 👏 to the team that put this together, I sincerely hope there will be future chapters for us to foil drevil’s plans. Please keep this work of art going!
Love the feel/style
Puzzle games usually lack any style. Or at least they all seem to copy each other. I absolutely loved the style/feel of this game. The story development and the imagery were fantastic. There was a few missing story connections, at least for me. And I do wish it were longer. I wait eagerly for the next one.
Started out interesting but.....
...it just hurt my brain after a while. Puzzles were so technical and complicated that I couldn't even be bothered to enter the chapter 6 solution after I'd looked it up in the walkthrough it was so intricate and long. I gave up at that point and am deleting before the end. Three stars for an interesting, well made, original, and stylish game but way over my head... and I've played a LOT of games. This is pretty much the first one that hurt this much. Sorry, Dev... it has a lot going for it but I'm guessing it will be too obscure for most gamers. It was for me. I guess I'm not geeky enough.
Developer Response ,
Fair enough. I admit it's quite a unique niche game, which you can probably either love or hate. It's a pity it was the latter for you. Thanks for your review though. Constructive feedback is always welcome.
