PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — “Where’s My Water?” is a new iPhone app from Disney Mobile, featuring a character called “Swampy the Alligator.”

The newest game in Disney’s repertoire has knocked long-time leader “Angry Birds” from the top of the mobile app list. iPhone owners can download the game for 99 cents.

The development team in Los Angeles includes 23-year-old Mount Lebanon native Chad Cable. Will Grunewald, now a barista at the Coffee Tree shop on Beverly Road, was Chad’s classmate at Mt. Lebanon High.

“He spent a lot of time in high school doing artistic stuff,” Grunewald says. “And it really paid off.”

Teacher Susan Redding doesn’t play the game, but knows those who do.

“I have an 11-year-old daughter. I work with kids at Lincoln Elementary who are six, seven, and eight, and they all know about it.”

But lest we think the new app is limited to the younger set, Gruenwald says: “My mom plays it, but she’s more technically apt than I am. So you know, go figure.”
