ROCHESTER, New York -- March 10, 2009 -- We take a break from the news of our latest game Multiwinia to share that our other award-winning games are still making headlines in the Mac community.

Omaha Sternberg of iGame Radio reviewed Ambrosia's underwater adventure game Aquaria on episode 71 of her show. Omaha was extremely impressed with not only the game play, but the quality of art and music offered by the game, awarding it a 4.7 out of 5!

As a bonus: Do you recognize some of that music played between segments? It's the music from Ambrosia's own El Ballo!

Macworld awarded Aquaria with 4 out of 5 Mice Rating.

Posted Feb 10 2009, 12:59 PM

ROCHESTER, New York -- January 30, 2009 -- Ambrosia's side scrolling underwater adventure game Aquaria is continuing to make a splash in the Mac games community with more and more publications offering great reviews of this product!  Chris Holt of Macworld.com has now been added to the chorus of those singing the praises. He has awarded Aquaria with 4 out of 5 mice!

Chris Holt write:

"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."

Appletell awards Aquaria with a 5 out of 5 rating!

Posted Jan 30 2009, 02:57 PM

ROCHESTER, New York -- January 30, 2009 -- Ambrosia's latest game Aquaria has been compared to a great many things by reviewers since it's release; comparisons to a Waterhouse painting, great mythological stories, and even a few classic games produced by Ambrosia among them. With that, we believe that this review is the first time any of our games have ever had the distinction of being compared to a progressive rock band.

That's right, the always entertaining reviewer Kirk Hiner of Appletell.com has given our underwater adventure game a unique perspective saying:

"Playing Aquaria from Ambrosia Software was like jumping into the cover of Classic Yes and having myself a good swim. And not just visually, but musically, too." He continues: "Aquaria has just about everything a gamer could want." Kirk concluded by awarding Aquaria with the highest rating possible, a 5 out of 5!
