Stunningly well crafted with a compelling story, beautiful visuals and music, and hours upon hours of action-adventure, Aquaria provides patient gamers with an ocean of depth.
This is by choice, because the gameplay is so simple to learn and so tightly integrated into the overall experience that you’ll often not even realize you’re clicking and dragging. Aquaria—although not perfect—is a well-planned and wonderfully executed game from just two developers who had a solid vision of what they wanted to achieve. And aside from a few questionable choices, they nailed it.

Endlich ist es soweit und Ambrosia hat den heiß ersehnten Port von Bit Blots Aquaria fertiggestellt. Was soll ich sagen? Dieses Spiel ist meines Erachtens ein absolutes Must-Have und weiß mit fesselndem Gameplay, einer riesigen Spielwelt, wunderschönen Grafiken und traumhaften Soundtrack lange Zeit zu begeistern. Wer auf Spiele wie Super Metroid oder Zelda aus alten SNES-Zeiten steht, wer gerne erkundet und sich von einer märchenhaften Welt verzaubern lässt, der sollte schleunigst die 30 Dollar investieren und sich diese Perle gönnen!
The game doesn’t merely pay homage to an earlier genre of gameplay, but embellishes and explores new ways to define it. Aquaria’s vast oceans require hours to explore and even then you’ll likely want to retrace your steps to find the little treasures you missed the first time around. Well-paced and unique, Aquaria is an instant classic.
