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."

GamerTell offers review of Aquaria

Posted Dec 22 2008, 07:14 PM

ROCHESTER, New York -- December 22, 2008 -- Danielle Riendeau of Gamertell.com decided to dive headfirst into review Ambrosia's latest game Aquaria.  If you haven't heard about this game, then I suggest you read his review and then rush to download the game immediately.  

"The title rises well above most indie-game expectations by not only having its technical and design elements in place, but by offering such a polished, rewarding, and sufficiently different experience. In an era of so many “me-too” games and gritty, gray color scale experiences, Aquaria offers exactly the trip down the rabbit hole that jaded gamers need."
