Just released, the Finding Dory app. I sat down with my 4-year-old, Zeke tonight and let him have my iPhone. “Choose an app and we will talk about it.” He spotted the Finding Dory – Just Keep Swimming app, and that was it. Zeke knew that DORY was the app he had to play, so that’s what we did – here is our review.
Finding Dory App Review
The Finding Dory app released on June 2, just in time for the Finding Dory movie (which releases on June 17, 2016 – this is a date you should know, especially if your kids are like mine – anxiously anticipating the movie opening!) It’s a fun app that features Dory and her friends. Inspired, of course – by the upcoming Disney Pixar film, Dory and friends journey through levels to find her family. Follow bubbles as you travel from the reef to shipwrecks and more.
Here is my son, Zeke and I reviewing the Finding Dory app.
The goal is to earn three stars on every level. You choose funny items that customize your journey along the way, this prevents you from ever playing the same game twice.
There are 13 levels and over 5 worlds. In the Finding Dory game, you will meet Dory’s friends: Nemo, Marlin, Hank, Bailey, Destiny and more. You can experience an incredible stingray migration, race across Morro Bay to help Dory save the day, explore the Marine Life institute and more.
There are 11 levels available today – when the movie releases, the final 2 levels will be released.
Tips and Tricks
Keep Dory Swimming!
Tap and hold anywhere on the screen, and Dory will swim in that direction.In most levels, Dory must keep up with the scrolling screen. Keep Dory swimming so that she doesnt fall off the edge of the screen, or else youll need to replay that section of the level
Get 3 Stars
Find special items and collect as many bubbles as you can to earn three stars in the level – totally awesome!
Sea Urchins and Other Hazards
Steer clear of sea urchins and other hazards that can hurt Dory. Touching these hazards will cause her to lose bubbles!
Turn off Sound Effects and Music via the Grown-Up Menu
Parents, you can turn off the sound effects and music. Maybe you have a sensory sensitive child (I do!) or maybe you just really don’t care to hear the bubbles or music (that’s me too, ha.) Disney has built in a feature that allows you to turn the app sound effects and music off. Here is how.
On the main screen, click on the grown-ups button in the upper right
Next, read the numbers and type in the four digits.
You are now in the grown-ups menu! Uncheck whichever box, the music and/or sound effects that you no longer want on.
