Finding Dory: Just Keep Swimming is a mobile game based on the recently released Disney movie Finding Dory, which is a sequel to the popular film Finding Nemo. The new movie has reportedly garnered $322.4 million globally since its release on 17 June.

Published by Disney and developed by Pixar Studios, the game is about a fish named Dory who has been separated from its family and is now trying to get back to its family again. The game allows the user to play as Dory and have a first-hand experience of Dory’s adventures.

Lacks the visual richness of the movie

The graphics look inspired by the movie but the difference between the two is stark. While the characters along with the under-water set-up and the minor details have been captured brilliantly, they really don’t look as visually stunning as the graphics in the Finding Dory movie. If you have watched the two movies and like playing games on your phone casually, this is a fun way of catching up with the characters in an entirely new way.

Fun to play but lacks depth

The game works through simple touch-based gestures. For instance, tapping and holding on the screen moves the character to the spot where you want the fish to move. In case you stop, the character keeps on whining funny monologues to remind you to get back to the game.

The key objective is to collect as many bubbles as you can and avoid bumping into other creatures, especially the dangerous ones. The time you take to clear a mission along with the number of collisions you had will determine the number of stars you earn at the end of each round. The game is divided into 13 such missions where each round offers a different objective. Overall, the game is fun to play as long as it lasts. Unfortunately, there isn’t much. You can finish the entire game in an hour.

Is it worth downloading?

For a game that doesn’t have a long gameplay, it commands a pretty hefty price tag. If you are an avid fan and don’t mind splurging a little, the game is worth a try. The game takes up 200MB of space after installation and runs offline which makes it playable anywhere and on any device.

If you are looking for a serious adventure game with more challenging missions, you can try the Hungry Shark Evolution, which allows you to take control of a shark, develop it and take on other aquatic creatures, and it is free to download.
