“Stunningly well crafted with a compelling story, beautiful visuals and music, and hours upon hours of action-adventure, Aquaria provides patient gamers with an ocean of depth.”
—Susie Ochs, Mac | Life


Explore a massive underwater world, teeming with life and filled with secrets. Join Naija, a lonely and mysterious aquatic girl, as she explores the depths of Aquaria. As her story unravels, she’ll travel from hidden caves shrouded in darkness, to beautiful sunlit oases.

Control Naija with an intuitive touch screen interface. Use her singing ability to create your own music, affect nearby creatures, move pieces of the environment and even transform Naija into different beings. Combine ingredients harvested from the environment in the “cooking system” to create tasty items. Catch a ride on a seahorse or a giant turtle. Discover new costumes, treasures and hidden secrets. Challenge the ancient gods who lurk beneath the waves.

GIZMODO: "With handcrafted visuals and an ethereal soundtrack, Aquaria looks, feels and plays just like a gothic fairy-tale. And it’s not just a loving pastiche of the classic 2D games of yesteryear. Aquaria brings the genre bang up to date with a fresh concept and a unique control system." (Gaming App of the Day)

POCKETGAMER: "Aquaria is absolutely gorgeous, and filled with clever ideas and smart puzzles. Both a calming splash in the sea and a frantic fight against the elements, it's an essential iPad game." (Top 10 iOS Games, November 2011)

TOUCHARCADE: "a gorgeous and well-produced title with a sharp emphasis on world-building and character growth." (Best iOS Games, November 2011)

EDGE MAGAZINE: "Aquaria’s gloomy caverns are a delight to explore, and, a rarity for a modern Metroidvanias, the designers don’t constantly lead the way for you."

Will you journey to the land beyond the surface and brave the dark sinister waters below? Will you defeat the ancient beings of Aquaria or fall prey to them? Will you find a companion or wander the waters of Aquaria alone?

I wrote this review a long time ago...in a seemingly galaxy far, far away. All these years later, this game still rocks and is both beautiful and innovative. It says a lot that the developers stick with it and continue to support upgrades. It is a journey and a beautiful one at that. Keep up the good work, I am a fan. Old review here; I am playing on an IPad1 but with the recent update, am having no software issues...so thanks for that. This game is huge...vast areas to explore! It's taken me a while as the game play is complex and does not offer up its secrets without a struggle...but it is worth the early frustration as new abilities are discovered and exploration of the incredible world of Aquaria is revealed. One small niggling issue; touch screen controls are difficult in some areas and seem a bit slow to respond which is frustrating. Otherwise...WOW. Just brilliant!

Amazing atmospher

I love this game. This is one of the few good, polished games on the AppStore. The music is especially good. One of the problems with the game is that having a mini map visible all the time, really prevents you from appreciating the beauty and immense scale of the world your exploring. Please add a option to make the mini map invisible. Also can you make a sequel.

This game is better then it looks (you’ll notice in the first 12 seconds of downloading it) would recommend.

One of the best games on the iPad

I own the game on the PC and is testimony to how good it is that I've bought it again. The touch controls work like a dream and I'd even go as far as saying that this is the definitive version.

The game is massive, stuffed with puzzles and action. It features a vast crafting system, numerous gameplay mechanics, tough but fair boss battles and many hidden secrets.

I love this game!
