Hydropuzzle is a surreal superhero parody shaped into a short text puzzle adventure. However, you don't outrun express trains, and you don’t fly through the skies. 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!
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.
Fun and interesting!
I thoroughly enjoyed this! Some puzzles look insanely complicated or impossible, but once it “clicks” nothing here is overly difficult or long. You really give us everything we need.
One criticism that I hope you’ll consider: please explicitly let us know when something isn’t a puzzle. At the end of chapter 2, I spent so much time trying to figure out how to respond to the social media haha
