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!

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 know it says I've only played 15 hours on steam, but that's because I only bought the steam version recently(ish). The truth is, this is my favorite indie game of all time. Minecraft, Gone Home, Bastion, Transistor...nothing can compare to how falling in love with this game felt when I was a young lad.

The User-defined tags should tell you everything you need to know about the gameplay: Metroidvania-styled level design, 2D underwater adventure, the works. But that's not why I love this game so much. This game is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. From its hand-painted graphics to its organic sounding music, from its triumphant title screen to its emotional ending, from the belly of the whale to the top of the Veil, from its simple controls to its hidden depths, from its quiet emotional moments to its larger-than-life boss battles...everything about this game stirs something within me, something that no game has really ever managed to reach before or since.

If you're jaded about the glut of early access ZombieSim Survivorsims, artsy-fartsy walking around simulators, blocky beep-boop bullet hell shooters that anyone could make, you owe it to yourself to play Aquaria. It's a shining gem of a game, one that holds the true worth of independent game development.

Oh, and you can make soup and hand rolls underwater.

A quite expansive underwater adventure, with a gameplay emphasis on exploration, and an aesthetic focus on atmospherics, which are done very, very well. You play as a lone character who seeks to uncover the truth about her past and the secrets of the world around her. Her characteristic ability is being able to sing magical songs that grant her abilities.

The game is very well-designed under the vein of letting the you, the player, figure things out on your own, and make your own discoveries. There are many features that are not outright explained, but are revealed to you if you wish to discover them, and this includes both narrative and gameplay features (e.g. decoding the Aquarian script, and riding seahorses). This arrangement fits very well with the narrative. The game also works well as a pick-up-and-play experience, with little needed in the way of previous genre or gameplay experience, which is nice (and also fits with this of gradual discovery).

The narrative, a story about gradual discovery of the past, the truth, and the meaning of one's own life, is also very nice. It's not too wordy, which is appropriate for a story like this one that's introspective. I felt the story was a little weak at the end, but the music and art made up for it. In any case, the game serves well the principle of "show, don't tell".

The soundtrack is very brilliant, beautiful, and memorable. For music theory geeks like me, it may be a little sparse on diversity of tonalities, but there's a reason for that, and that's to make the music match up to the singable tones. Fun fact: if you can recognize keys, you might also catch when Naija sings different tones. For another fun activity, pick out the leitmotifs.

The art is very detailed, and also very beautiful. Most of the areas are simply gorgeous to look at. You might even find yourself sitting on a chair or a rock and taking in the scenery and soundtrack. Character animations may be a tiny bit stiff at times, but that is a negligible issue considering the sheer beauty of the art. It unfolds like a fairy tale...

For those of you who feel that there ought to be some more combat in the game -- well, there certainly is; one of the earliest abilities you get is a combat ability, and there are certainly many enemies to fight later on, including several pretty difficult bosses. Though you may find yourself asking philosophical questions about the role of combat, as I did...

There's also an item crafting system wherein you can "cook" ingredients to get food items that can do healing or temporarily boost abilities. It's also quite extensive, and has many opportunities for discovery through experimentation if you're interested in that.

Backtracking in this game is a little tedious at times, but you later on get abilities that allow faster movement, so I suggest waiting on backtracking until you get those. Keep in mind that the map allows you to set multiple colored markers indicating features that you'd like to return to -- which is a really, really nice thing that I actually haven't yet seen another metroidvania game do.

TL;DR much to explore, much to discovery, brilliant top-notch atmospherics. Definitely recommended.

Aquaria is a beautful underwater game that feels very much like a mixture of Ecco the Dolphin and Super Metroid. If you're not familiar with the Metroidvania styele of game,s it involves avast, open world where the player is given, generally, very little direction of where to go, with the only obstacles being environments or passages thta the player cannot explore due to needing to unlock abilities, find items, leanr amgic, or what have you.

Aquaria does this through songs, which lets you transform into other forms giving you new abilities, like energy blasts, faster swimming, or the ability to project light into darkness. The world is larger than I expected, and comprised of several distinct areas that run the gamut from the Kelp Forest, to a Sunken City, to the Veil, which should be seen in game to be properly experienced. Luckily, the game lets you put down as many checkpoints as you want, to let you mark down places you can't quite get to yet, or areas you might want to come back to later. If you want to collect veeyrthing, you'll be backtracking quite a bit.

Music is a focal point in the game, and so it's not surprising that Aquaria has fantastic music. The graphics are pretty for what they are, and the bit of voice acting in the game is good as well. Most of the songs seem to ebe a variation of the game's main theme, which becomes a point touched on in the game's plot later.

The game has tons of optional content, areas, and bosses, which lets you find either new optional forms, new costumes for Naija, the adventurer, or simply little trinkets that sit in your home that make the place look nicer and sometimes add little creatures to the area. The little touches like thsis bring the game from being good to much better.

Combat gets very 'shmupy/bullet helly' at times, and sometimes boils down to chugging healing items (which are made through a very robust recipe and cooking system - actually pretty neat!) and blasting away as fast as your right mouse button will let you click.

If I had any qualms with the game, it's that it feels like the fast travel is just few and far enough between to where you do a lot of swimming around, but if you get good at wall-boost chaining (and you will) a lot of this is mitigated. There's also a few moments where how to proceed is not immediately apparent, and it's only after i tried everything that i realized what the hint telling me what to do was actually supposed to be. The game also runs off of a save-point system, with no checkpoints in between, so a feath can force you to replay a bit more of your previous progress than you might like. This isn't a huge issue typically, though there is one optional boss that's quite a trek from a save point to get to, and isn't very easy to top it off.

Finally, the last problem: The game ends on a huge cliffhanger, and we will never see a sequel, more than likely. Oh well.

Fantastic game, and I would heavily recommend it

LOVED this game! Its fun, it has a variety of things to do, lots of bosses and minibosses, plus a beautiful world to explore and all kinds of things to find. Ive played it through a few times and each time i find a hidden something i missed before. I also would like to express my love for the music and sound fx. I feel like someone put a lot of time into that part of the game. The game itself progresses very well if you keep up on your food and cooking. I do wish i could have stored more food in my inventory though. It forced me to keep stopping and cooking so I would not be picking up drops for nothing. I think that is intentional though. I can think of a few reasons it might be that way, still frustrating. Over all this is in my top most played games even though its a simple sidescroll game. Good animation, good progressiveness, neat story. Fun for all ages.

This game is an oftentimes slow-paced world where the most important thing to get out of it is a sense of exploration. There is an expansive world with an entire history to be discovered. For those looking for an expansive adventure full of exploration and discovery, this is for you. For those looking for pew pew in their games, you'll find that here too, but in much shorter supply.

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.

Vorveröffentlichungsreview
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.

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.

Aquaria war ein echt geniales Game. Ich habe es zwar nicht komplett durchgespielt (letzter Boss fehlte mir noch), aber es hat mich sehr hineingezogen. Die Atmosphäre dieses Spiels ist sehr dicht und ich lege es jedem ans Herz, der ein gutes Adventure mag.
Was mich am meisten fasziniert hat, ist einfach die Story. Man fängt als Nayja (wird sie so geschrieben?) an. Weiß nicht warum sie allein ist, was in dieser Unterwasserwelt passiert. Des Rätsels Lösung kommt erst ungefähr bei der Hälfte. Es ist nicht genau klar, ob sie von den Wesen abstammt, aber es scheint so. Die Story selbst ist an manchen Stellen auch sehr ergreifend. Ich will aber nicht zu viel vorweg nehmen.
Die Steuerung mit Maus funktioniert echt gut. Wer einen Controller vorzieht, dem ist dies selbst überlassen.
Das Gameplay ist zu Anfang recht simpel. Je mehr Songs man lernt umso komplexer wird es. Sich in der Welt zurechtzufinden funktioniert mit der Map recht gut, man sollte sich jedoch gut einprägen, wo welche Hindernisse einen aufgehalten haben, da man sonst manchmal den Überblick verliert. Manchmal ist es so konzipiert, dass man wirklich erstmal woanders nach dem jeweiligen Song suchen muss, um die richtige Form anzunehmen. Auf der anderen Seite kann man einige Sachen, auch so überwinden, wenn man sich ein bisschen mit der Steuerung auskennt.

Aquaria ist ein liebevoll gestaltetes 2D Unterwasser Abenteuer Spiel in dem man die Welt erkundet, neue Fähigkeiten bekommt um in dieser Welt weiter voranschreiten zu können während man auch wieder in alte Bereiche zurück kann um mit den neuen Fähigkeiten die alten Bereiche weiter nach Geheimnissen abzusuchen.

Aquaria bietet einem wunderschöne handgezeichnete 2D Grafiken, die ganze Unterwasser Welt ist liebevoll gestaltet und bietet viele verschiedene Orte die alle unterschiedlich aussehen.

Die Story ist nicht so außergewöhnlich und komplex aber sie passt zu dieser Welt und die Stimme des Hauptcharakters kommt immer zum Vorschein wenn es passt und stört auch nicht.

Das Gameplay funktioniert wie in einem typischen Metroidvania, man erkundet die Welt, erfährt etwas von der Story, besiegt Bosse und bekommt dadurch Fähigkeiten mit denen man vorher unzugängliche Bereiche betreten kann, unter anderem kann man kochen was einem verschieden Boni bringt wie zum Beispiel mehr Angriff oder mehr Verteidigung.

Das Spiel kommt auch mit einem Editor daher der mit etwas Übung leicht zu bedienen und somit theoretisch endloser Content möglich ist.

Die Musik diese Spiels ist atemberaubend schön anzuhören, es gibt ruhige Melodien aber auch etwas treibendere Lieder, sie untermalen das Spiel aber immer passend zum aktuellen Geschehen und die Melodie die im Hauptmenü läuft ist eines der schönsten Lieder die ich in einem Videospiel hören durfte und hat mich oft dazu gebracht bevor ich das Spiel starte immer etwas der Melodie zu lauschen.

Für wenig Geld bekommt ihr hier stundenlange feinste Unterhaltung und wenn ihr das Spiel durch habt werdet ihr euch einen zweiten Teil wünschen um wieder in diese wunderbare Welt abzutauchen.

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.

A relic from an era of £15 Indie titles that your average gamer would never seek out because they were usually hidden away on the developers home page without much aplomb.

Now Steam is chock full of titles and Humble Bundle/Indie Royale throw them out two to the penny. The golden era of the Indies has arrived!

Unfortunately this title and many others like it are left in the dusty past, forgotten, unloved. Give it a go and you'll be rewarded with a charming little foray into an aquatic wonderland the likes of which haven't been seen since the clicks and whistles of Ecco the Dolphin dazzled you on the Dreamcast.

I wake up in a wonderful underwater world. It’s magical, large and full wonderful things to discover. I have no clue how I got here or why I am the only one besides the normal sea creatures. I am Naija, a beautiful mermaid-like woman, trying to discover the past and find out what happen to everyone else.

Aquaria is a 2D underwater adventure where you need to recover your past and find out what happen to everyone else. All other intelligent life seems to have been wiped out and you can’t remember anything. What discoveries and treasures will you find on your large adventure?

You will discover songs that will give you special powers to help you on your journey. You can get one that will shoot like a fire blast, another which will let you swim against strong currents, or one that will let you light up deep dark caverns. You can earn these by fighting bosses or finding them in hidden caves. You will also need to learn recipes that will help heal you and give your powers a boost. These are all found when dropped from defeated enemies or plants you can pop by certain music tones.

It’s a beautiful world of varieties of sea creatures that range from friendly to violent. Everything looks really colorful and vibrant. The world under the sea is very large and when you think you’ve discovered everything you discovered another huge area. You’ll have plenty of backtracking to find all the hidden secrets in the old-school Metroid style. Get a new power and go back to a previous area to access new areas.

There wasn’t really any problems with the game in my opinion. I do wish the final fight was a little better but it wasn’t really an issue. I also wish I was able to zoom in on the map a little more as sometimes it was hard to see where I needed to go. Those are minor issues though and never pulled me out of the experience.

Aquaria is a low priced indie game that is superb and wonderful to play. You have a good story with a twist, beautiful world to explore, fantastic music, and many hours of enjoyment. I sank 24hrs into the game and enjoyed every minute of it. There’s also some mods you can download to add more to the game if you’d like.

Bear Rating 9.5/10
