I've played this on iPad and on PC all the way through (PC is a lot easier). Loved the music and the context. Nothing could quite prepare me for the "WTF?" moment when I met the end boss though, which made no sense whatsoever.

One of those rare gems in gaming. This is the beginning of indie for me. Together with Braid and World of Goo, this is a masterpiece in our era.

It's a swimming Metroidvania, and if you don't know what that is, you might not like it. You need to search and explore and sometimes dive into dark waters that will kill you in an instant, but when you master the game (and cooking!), you will love it. It's a surprisingly deep love story, a great mechanic-wise game, has wonderful music and not as short as it seems.

If you're into Metroidvanias, this game is one of the best in the genre.

I've bought it on Steam only to have it here as well, and still waiting for the never-coming sequel.

Beautiful graphics, sound and storyline. Relaxing game with some interesting gameplay. Its just a shame that it doesn't better support gamepads or higher resolutions, only a few buttons are mappable and it has to be set up before you can use it.

Aquaria was one of the first open-world games I ever played. I entered the gaming world later than most, & wasn't expecting such freedom. The music, artwork, & sheer amount of room I had to explore & challenge foes entranced me. I put over 50 hours into the demo without a second thought, despite the fact that it only allowed me access to two forms & a few areas. Everything from the battle system to cooking items to regain health & create effects was new to me, & I adored every moment of it.

The work that has gone into this game's artwork (much of which is done in watercolour) & music creates an environment that can shift from carefree to ominous in moments. Nadja's form, the environments she explores, & the creatures she battles are unique & beautiful-- & sometimes terrifying.

I own both the computer version & the iPad versions of this game, & the switch from keyboard controls to touch is seemless & inspired. I highly recommend the iPad version for individuals who want to connect with the game kinetically.

What stands head & shoulders above all other elements of this game, though (in my opinion), is the soundtrack. Each song is crafted to evoke a sense of wonder, fear, or joy with exceptional results, to the point that encountering silence creates the sense that something integral to the game is absent. To this day, I haven't encountered music that fit so well with a game's surroundings & personality. Above all, Aquaria's music is what creates the atmosphere I keep returning to, even years later.

While the developers have moved onto different projects, & don't plan to make a sequel, mods exist that expand the game's areas, making it worthwhile to download them. I'll always want to see a sequel, but part of me acknowledges that any follow-up to this game would likely fall flat in comparison.

My final recommendation is that you should buy this game, especially if you have a soft spot for atmosphere & exploration, And of course, incredible music. Aquaria's kept me entertained & inspired for years now, & never disappoints.

There is no neutral option so I will say it is recommended. The game is enjoyable with beautiful artwork, soundtrack and the flexibility in combat system. However, there is one thing that I really really hate about Aquaria is its "checkpoints". They are always 30 mins of travelling apart, and always at the worst place. If you die on your way to get to the next checkpoint, well, here goes another half an hour of travelling (facing the same lame monsters!!!). That is just really frustrating.

My opinion: 7/10

Tried to play this game two times in really different times of my life (more than a year between the two tries) and I don't get this game.

Is tedious, is boring, is slow, feels plain...

It is currently on my "Hidden" list in Steam, I gave up on it and I'm never going to look back at it.

Aquaria by Alec Holowka and Derek Yu is a gorgeous adventure game in the vein of Castlevania and Metroid. Instead of gothic castles or spaceships, however, the world you’ll be exploring is a beautifully drawn underwater maze, teeming with plant and animal life. Most of which will try to kill you.

Your avatar in this world is Naija, a blue-skinned, enflippered humanoid with no memories of her past. When Naija is visited by a mysterious cloaked person who bestows upon Naija a deadly vision, she decides to set out and explore the ocean. There are forests of towering kelp full of seahorses, ancient civilizations whose ruins hide powerful secret spells, and dark depths where monstrous creatures await to devour unsuspecting travelers. Naija, in her initial state, has no offensive capabilities, which makes your first couple hours in the game a timid affair of running from fights and dodging enemies. But she is not helpless for long! She has the power of The Verse, a magical music power that allows her to take different forms, allowing her to attack enemies or overcome obstacles. You sing songs by right-clicking and running the cursor over different symbols, to play short phrases, similarly to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. This is the main way the game gates content.

Most of the world is closed off to you in one way or another at the start, and finding different songs will allow you to overcome these obstacles. For instance, you might pass a powerful current that you cannot swim into, at least until you find the Beast-form song, which gives your dash so much power you can easily force your way into that tunnel, opening a new section of the waters to explore. This can be a little frustrating at times, as it can seem that you have nowhere to go, when you actually have to backtrack quite far to find the one entrance that your new power allows you to open. The game has an adequate map-marking tool, but more than once I gave up and had to consult a walkthrough to progress.
There is also a recipe system that allows you to combine ingredients you find in the world into different foods, which will heal Naija, strengthen certain abilities, or even make her invincible. Some ingredients can be quite difficult to find, and completionists will be hard-pressed to find all of them without help. The recipe system can also be a source of frustration, as some of the later boss fights are quite unforgiving, and almost require some of the rarer consumables to survive.

Holowka’s music is quite beautiful throughout the game. Boss fight songs have high-paced intensity, while the open waters have a grand exploratory solitude to them. Naija’s home has a quaint little ditty. Overall the soundtrack is alternatively relaxing and driving. I listen to it at work when I need to just escape and get stuff done. The sound effects can get a little grating, as your energy attack will be used approximately 8 million times through the course of the game. That *schwoosh* sound gets quite old after a while, especially during some boss fights where you’re spamming it constantly.

The visuals are where this game really stands out, though. That this game was the product of two men is astounding. The entire world is cohesive and beautiful, full of varied sea life and environments. Yet everything fits together so well, and nothing seems out of place. The 2D graphics really shine on any system, even an older laptop.

The mouse-and-keyboard controls are fairly intuitive, allowing you to swim effortlessly and propel yourself with your powerful legs from wall to wall. The singing mechanic is fun, but sometimes can get a little difficult to control, especially in high stress situations where you want to change quickly between forms. Nowhere in game does it tell you this, but your songs are actually mapped to the 1-9 number keys, and you can switch effortlessly between them without actually singing the songs. This makes the game a lot easier, but also takes away some of your immersion.

The ending to the game leaves open the possibility of a sequel, but unfortunately it doesn’t look like that will happen.
This is a great adventure game, but it is not without its flaws. Every Metroidvania adventure game struggles with backtracking and the potential for the player to miss an important passageway, but don’t let that drive you away from this game. The game is just gorgeous, and you’ll want to explore each of the tremendously varied zones for their own sake, not just to collect some loot and leave. You’ll want to go swimming after playing this game. Just be sure to avoid any sea dragons.

Awesome game that would deserve a lot more success than I feel it has. graphic style is really beatiful, music is just pure bliss to the ears, simple yet efficient and enjoyable gameplay, the whole wrapped in a relatively long metroidvania style adventure with lots of things to explore and discover, and an intriguing story.
All in all this game is a gem that I most enjoyed playing, with a very beautiful and attaching atmosphere to it that will make you want to swim again and again in its world from top to bottom.
And I am even more in awe considering this game was done by pretty much 2 persons!
A must-have game, and soundtrack as well!

It was good enough to get me to play it for 21 hours. I found it very hard to get into at the start though. The eventual exploration and boss battles were enough to keep me playing. No major flaws in the world design or combat system. The story wasn't very engaging though. Highlight of the game: At some point, otters show up!

Pros:
++Gorgeous and unique underwater world, I especially loved it when I finally reached the surface and flipped about like a dolphin. So fab!

+Interesting movement, although awkward at times

+Great boss monster design, they look really awesome

+Great music. Mostly soothing, but some tracks are more on the eerie side

Cons:
---Loooads of backtracking. Even if you don't have a problem with metroidvania games like Symphony of the Night, this might be too much for you. Certainly was for me

--Boring combat mechanics

-Oddly placed checkpoints

-Story is vague at best. I liked the initial premise, but it never developed into something that motivated me to keep going

All in all, I wish there was a neutral recommendation button, because there's certainly a lot to like here if you are very patient and/or just want to absorb the atmosphere. In the end, it was far too much backtracking with nothing but tedious combat to pass the time travelling. Some better pacing might have made this an absolute gem, but it takes such a long time for something to actually happen in the game that I lost my motivation to keep playing and after it's been sitting idly in my library for 2 years, it's safe to say I won't touch it again.

I always wish there had been a sequel to Aquaria. Pretty, mysterious, with a story worth pursuing and enjoyable yet challenging controls as you navigate the game.

Most similar to 'Dust: An Elysian Tail' or 'Ori and the Blind Forest'.

Con Don Omar y Pepe Viyuela como la pareja protagonista, éste juego de puzles en primera persona está ambientado en el Neo-Tokio del siglo XXXV, en el que una gran corporación controla a la gente con sus productos caros e innecesarios, por lo que una banda de granjeros armados con sus horcas han de hacer lo posible por evitar que Adolf Hitler vuelva a la vida.

Le pongo un 8/10 por la escasez de Flubber en el juego.

Juego de gran belleza y arte 2D que sin embargo echará atrás a más de uno por su estética de cuento y ritmo relajado a los primeros compases de juego. BSO notable y acorde a cada momento del juego. La exploración y variedad de entornos irá en constante aumento, encontrando en cada rincón del mapeado jefazos muy bien diseñados, cada uno con patrones que debemos aprender para acabar con ellos.

Por contra diré que es bastante exigente, no es para todo tipo de público y resulta bastante fácil perderse dado a lo inmenso de los mapeados y a la falta de información de la que disponemos. La trama consta de unas pocas secuencias concretas, cumple y no tiene nada que destacar. Aun así, resulta muy divertido y desafiante. La multitud de transformaciones, escenarios variados y estructura de corte muy Metroidvania harán las delicias de quienes quieran darle una oportunidad.

Nota personal: 7.

Es posiblemente el juego que más me ha calado desde hace varios años. Una música impresionante, una historia original muy entretenida. La jugabilidad es excelente.

Lo único malo es que no esté traducido al castellano, pero podéis encontrar parches para traducirlo por la red (en el propio foro oficial de los creadores mismamente).

Incredible, atmospheric experience and a work of art.

from the design standpoint Aquaria is a Metroidvania 2D game with big underwater world to explore. Those ideas aren't that special on paper, but the strange mix of climactic locations, fitting music and hand-drawn graphics makes this title not only joy to look and hear, but makes so much impact on the player that after you finish the game you will know that is one of the best indie games out there yet to be recognized by most of gaming community.

The story is simple, but it is told extremely well by the voice of the main protagonist as you play the game. It starts out interesting, but it ends up strongly heart-touching. The plot is slowly revealed through the game and the next surprise around the corner will be bigger than the former. Also, in my opinion, Naija is one of the best written female characters in video game industry up to date.

Aquaria is an open world and you must figure out most of the gameplay mechanics all by yourself. Some tactics for beating some bosses are kind of tricky, so this isn't the game for people that are not so fond of the more exploration-oriented games. The start of this game isn't as fast as you would want to, but if you will give it some time you will be hooked straight to the finish. Game is around 12-20 hours long and there are lots of non-mandatory things to find. This is not a small game by any means.

Aquaria had a bad luck that it came before the Braid's indie games boom. Don't miss this one. It's a powerful gem hidden in the sea.

Short Verdict: Wow. Aquaria is a stunningly beautiful metroidvania indie game published back in 2007, but it's still a pearl! I literally dove into it from the moment I started and I really had a blast. I'm very thankful to Jaws for not only trading it with me, but also for recommending it. If you like metroidvanias, indie games and pretty 2D graphics, don't miss this one for nothing! Oh, make sure you play it with a controller, since it's a lot better (except menus, which are easier to navigate with a mouse).

Pros:
Oh, where to start....
  • Very interesting mechanic, where you can transform into different forms, each with its specialty and abilities that unlock more and more of the world
  • A HUGE world for you to explore and swim around
  • Has a great, deep story that pushes you to keep going
  • Lots of treasures, costumes, energy boosts, pets, songs, ingredients and food recipes for you to collect
  • I think it's safe to say that its difficulty level is absolutely perfect--not insanely hard, but don't be fooled by the cute graphics, this game is not a walk in the park either
  • Very interesting boss fights--while they depend on your skills, they're first and foremost puzzles
  • Being able to fill the map with customizable markers is not only a great feature, but also necessary if you want to master the game without looking (too much on) FAQs
  • Absolutely gorgeous 2D graphics
  • Awesome BGM with many different great tracks
  • Great voice acting, even if you compare it to mainstream games
  • If you're into it, there are even some interesting mods, mainly Sacrifice (a story-driven prequel) and Labyrinth (a small sequel focused on, you guessed, a labyrinth map)

Cons:
  • Aquaria's world is so huge it might take a lot of time when you have to backtrack to explore old areas after acquiring new forms/abilities. There are travel turtles that carry you around (also seahorses you can ride for faster shorter movements), but I think there could've been at least twice as much turtles for a world that size. Also, being able to choose your destiny instead of having to cycle through them would be great. I didn't have to use them a lot, but it was kind of boring when I had.
  • Controls for when you're out of the water are a bit too clumsy for me. Of course they should be a bit clumsy, since you're supposed to live in the water, but they could've been better.

Bought on / for: I actually traded for another bundle key/link I had. But this game is definitely worth its full price!
