One of the many things that make this app such great fun is the player's sense of being part of an unfolding story, rich in humor and detail. The lovable goofiness embodied by Dory's character permeates the action, eliciting an unusually high number of smiles per minute from players. At the beginning of each level, Dory prompts the player to select and remember two objects that later become part of the story in highly amusing ways. By tapping and sliding a finger on the screen, players navigate Dory through labyrinthine waters while striving to collect bubbles, find friends, and avoid obstacles such as Spiky Sea Urchins. Completing one level unlocks the next, with 13 different levels in all. The varying storylines and activities, along with appearances by familiar characters such as Nemo, Marlin, Hank, Bailey, and Destiny, make this app every bit as engaging and entertaining as the Disney-Pixar film that inspired it.
