Yesterday, Ruben iJpelaar posted a free 2D water game for the iPhone and iPad called Floody Hell.
Ruben: “Pick up your boots and get ready for action. A major flood is ahead. The water rises fast and the lives of your citizens are in danger. YOU have to save them!
Plunge into this adventure and get the feeling of PAC-MAN and SimCity. Beside simple but elegant fun, this is also ‘serious gaming’. Experience the dilemmas of rescue workers and find out the most efficient way to transport people and sandbags before and during the big flood.
Enjoy 4 levels of flooding action now. More levels will become available in future (free) updates.
THIS IS THE FIRST 2D FLOODING GAME. BOOST YOUR DEVICE WITH FLOODY HELL!
Visit my website for more information and game instructions! This game is totally free without commercials or other annoyances. Be so kind to ‘rate’ this game at the App Store. Your feed-back enables me to improve the game and develop new games to promote hydrology and water management.

I recommend that you watch the demo in Ruben’s website to get it quickly. I wish that Ruben had added an audio commentary instead of the text gloss to his video tutorial. The download from iTunes was fast, but controlling the vehicles without a mouse (like in the demo) took a few minutes of adjustment. You can’t regulate the speed of the vehicles so you really are at the mercy of the advancing waters. Interesting game to get kids understand the urgency and decision making by First Responders during flood emergencies. Comment here to share your experience with the app.
