Fans of Metroid-style games and beautiful graphics should pick up this gem. It's the proper length, and contains just the right number of puzzles and hidden secrets to make even a $20 price-point viable. At $10, it's a steal.

It's one of those Metroidvania games that reminds me of everything I love about the genre. Definitely worth buying.

I've been playing this on and off for years now (since 2008!) and finally knuckled down to finish it this year. The pacing as with many of Zelda\Metrodvania games, can be a bit iffy in places but once more 'forms' are introduced it becomes much more interesting. With a unique art style and atmosphere the game delivers highly in presentation. The bosses are spectacular and genuinely creepy as well as challenging. Highly recommend to fans of the genre and exploration fans.

A mix between Zelda Ocarina of Time, Metroid & Ecco the dolphin. 10/10 Fan for life

Great music is also worth mentioning, had to buy the soundtrack ^.^
The next best thing to playing N64 Zelda Games

Everything about the game is perfect, the only problem I had with it was trying to figure out where to go next, but easily fixed with a brief look at a walkthrough to point me in the right direction.

A metroidvania style game. Swim your way through a huge map that you will visit the same locations multiple times using your different powers that you've learned over the course of your adventure to unlock new locations. Magic, action, and casual gaming bring a good mix to this 2D animated game. While I recommend this, I must warn you, the game ends with a "to be continued." However, no sequel is likely to ever be made. The story does end well though, so you will not be let down by playing just this one game.

Hard to get into this game.

30 minutes into this game and I still don't know what I'm supposed to do.

Pros - Visually appealing scenery, smooth gamepad controls

Cons - Although you have to check a box for gamepad support when you launch, the game doesnt translate its queues to gamepad. I was using an Xbox 360 controller, and the game is telling me to click the left mouse button, or right click on my character. The game doesn't provide direction on what to do, you pretty much just swim aimlessly.

If this game was updated to adjust its prompts based on whether you were using a gamepad or not, I may give this another try.

It's Castlevania with fish. If that alone is not enough, this fantastic indie gem offers a huge, detailed world spanning all manners of watery locales from icey shallows to a pitch black abyss and easily, *easily* one of the best soundtracks in videogame history, no exaggeration.

What is the reason we fall in love with a game? Is it the visuals that are aesthetically pleasant and utilize some original style? Or is it the world, the story, the characters? Maybe the biggest thing is gameplay mechanics, or if we speak about metroidvania genre in particular the complexity of the vast map and its clever design, which makes nearly every path valid and interesting? That matters a lot if a developer can not only make a bunch of interesting locations separated by obstacles that require special abilities or items to pass them, but also performs a miracle of guiding you through it without showing direction with a giant red arrow on the map. Feeling not lost, but intrigued like a true discoverer traversing unknown grounds — that matters a lot. And Aquaria has all of that and more. It has voice and sound. Beautiful and soothing voice of the protagonist narrating events throughout the game being as clueless as the player. And a truly amazing soundtrack, which is not just some “accompanying music”, but a masterpiece on its own. It stands out like a pearl lying on the ocean’s floor shining against the background of dull sand.
And it has one fatal truly hurting me flaw, which makes me love this game even more. That must be stupid — to love something because of the defect, one might think. But this one is special. Aquaria ends on a high note with a cliffhanger of such enormous proportions, that the fact that sequel most probably wouldn’t happen ever makes me sad ‘till the present day. A craftsmanship of just two guys, it came out in 2007, and it has been 7 years since then. Bit Blot studio is effectively defunct. Derek Yu created wonderful Spelunky, and Alec Holowka composed a lot of wonderful soundtracks for a number of games and collaborated on various projects, ultimately launching the successful Kickstarter campaign for a Night in the Woods, which looks very promising. To tell you the truth, the story of an underwater journey is still very much satisfying, it closes script arch in a wonderful way, with a proper resolution and sensible ending. It’s just that final little itty-bitty glimpse, that promises more of Aquaria to come, that sticks to my brain. And I can’t let go. Among hundreds of games that I played it’s the one I easily can name as one of the most beloved.
But obviously that moment in the end wouldn’t irritate me if the game itself was mediocre. So let’s talk about it for a moment, instead of grieving the never-happening-sequel. You play as Naija. You can call her a mermaid, I suppose; except she doesn’t really have that fish-like scale tail and looks more like a green-skinned girl with flippers and strange ears. So, she breathes underwater and even is able to “sing”. This is actually the main form of interaction with the world. For the most part the heroine can’t affect game objects directly. Different tunes perform different actions like lifting or shielding. But they all change “form” of Naija giving her offensive, defensive and various other abilities. In order to perform a melody the player has to select the right order of color-coded tones. Technically you are bound to do it only once, when learning it for the first time. After that you can use it with a hotkey, but then you’ll miss the one tiny detail: tones actually change depending on the region you are in. And that may not be the exact detail that makes Aquaria so great, but it is a great example of how vast the game is. Honestly: you can’t just point a finger at a single thing here and say, that it’s the most important — they all are. From the glorious warm waters of near-surface areas to the chilling thrills of deepest abyss this game just doesn’t stop to surprise. A very simplistic beginning that reflects Naija’s life as “a simple creature” in her own words transforms and grows like an underwater life itself becoming more and more complex, throwing in more mechanics, more songs, more pieces of backstory. It simply isn’t possible to draw a line here. Where does the story end and the gameplay begin? Where does the world transform into a form of a narrative? It’s just one whole engaging thing. I guess this is the best possible result for metroidvania, especially the one which starts with a phrase “The Verse binds us, narrator and explorer; my story will become your own, and yours will become mine.”
But you don’t know what The Verse is yet, do you? That is the force that runs through all the Aquaria (yes, game’s world has the same name as the game itself), every living being contains small part of this power, and it can be guided with rhythms and music. This seemingly peaceful concept can deceive you in the beginning into the feeling that all of the game would be careless joy and swimming around looking at the beautiful scenery. Well, in a way it is, but as you path goes down into the darkness closer to the ocean bed the grim secrets of game’s world become uncovered. What starts as seemingly aimless journey started out of curiosity turns out to be an epic tale about extinct races, gods gone mad and ultimately finding out what this all was about… except that last tiny bit, of course, but you already know that, and it shouldn’t bother you for now. Because there’s a whole world ahead of you, don’t miss an opportunity to visit it.

You like Metroid? You like Castlevania? You'll like this game.

There are many different collectibles and suits (or spirits) to collect to enhance and change abilities. Naija's original form uses her singing ability to open up plant life (for food and bonuses), to open doors and discover secrets. The game has narration via Naija. However, not much is ever handed to you or hinted at, you must explore on your own and find your way.

There's a fun little wall bouncing mechanic that makes traversing the underwater environments fast and fun. There's also a cooking mechanic to help heal or boost stats for short periods to help beat bosses. A lot of the time you can approach exploration and combat in different ways. And it does get tough. Later stages it can turn into bullethell segments that require planning and fast reactions. There's plenty here to keep a Metroidvania addicted.

I had to go back to this game again - it's very Legend of Zeldaesque but its not very formulaic and the setting is quite unique. Well worth the low price it is at now.

Beautifull open area game, great music, story will unfold slowly as you explore the beautifull and mystical depths of the ocean. And then there is the music, i normally turn off the music and put on my own, but i even bought the soundtrack of this game, and i never done something like that before.

My last review of this game was negative and poorly written. I focused mainly on the bad parts of the game and didn't ever surface any of the amazing things you find whilst seeing Naija's life through her eyes.

***SPOILERS AHEAD***

You sit in a small underwater cave and hum silently to yourself. For as long as you can remember you have come to this secret cave a refuge from day-to-day life. You might have stayed there and lived amongst the company of yourself, but tirelessness and the simple desire to have a companionship of any form slowly overtook you and so you felt the need to leave. You swim slowly towards the exit of the cave when a flash of light clouds your vision and a shadowy figure clad in blue appears before you. Curious, you swam closer, only to be faced with another flash of light as the figure transfers a memory to you. The memory, quite cloudy, showed you fighting - something you have never done before. Why were you fighting? Who were you fighting? The vision ended and you found yourself alone in the cave. You might have lived out the rest of your days as a creature living on basic instincts of survival but that vision changed you. As if awoken from a dream you were hit with the hard realization of your existence - you were utterly alone. You searched for answers and, in time, found much more than you had ever thought possible. No mortal should ever have had to endure what you did.

***SPOILERS END***

In terms of play the game was fairly simple. You weave songs from the Verse to change forms and each form has it's own abilities, pros, and cons. Some forms are meant for combat and others are meant for solving puzzles or doing specific tasks. But as you get further into the game the find that there are actually some very complex aspects.

The game was just plain beautiful. The scenery was amazing and the music blended fantastically. The vibrant colors of millions of species of marine life fill your view throughout the course of the game.

You can find a link to a demo OST here

I highly recommend that you get the game. 9.5/10

I originally played Aquaria on the iPad 2. I wasn't really a big tablet/phone gamer, but Aquaria looked fascinating, and I love me some Metroidvania, especially when it's done right as so many devs fail at. I was never really into PC games until I found out about Steam, i loved the idea of having an Xbox Live Arcade like system, and I had always heard of it but never knew what it was until recently. I was surprised to find how many games I loved that were on here, and when they do deales on things, it can make you want to buy a bunch of stuff. I HAD to buy Skyrim Deluxe pack even though I have it on 360 and with all DLC, I wanna see what kind of improvement my new PC will make.

Anyways as for Aquaria, if you like Metroidvania games, this is the game to buy, it takes place underwater but like any real Metroidvaniaa style game you have to power up and collect items to get to certain areas you've passed. It was so easy to control on iPad, I imagine the PC would be just as easy if not more so.

I want to recommend this game because it is wonderfully crafted, the underwater world just looks fantastic and the soundtrack is also great and rather relaxing and suits the game very well. The only problem is, I found the game got very boring. I got hooked after the first 5 minutes and was thinking "this is amazing, this game is so cool", but after another half an hour of playing, I started to get bored. I'm not sure if this is because I've only played a short time and haven't unlocked a lot of things, but I just couldn't stay hooked on it.

The actual gameplay and controls are different to most games, and a little average at times when I found myself clinging to a wall when I didn't want to be there.

Another downfall of the game is the mostly black area that surrounds your screen and the game world a lot of the time. I get the point of it, you're swimming through caves and everything, but I didn't like it, it got in the way of, and ruined, the game world a little too much for me.

Overall I'd say that if this is on sale, -%50 or more, maybe pick it up and give it a go, you might enjoy it more than I did.
6/10
