Art Style: Aquia Review

30 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Art Style: Aquia may look like another Tetris/Bejeweled clone at first, but dive under the surface of this DSiWare aquatic-themed game and you'll find a puzzler with its own unique take on the genre that can be as fun and addictive as its well-known progenitors. Unfortunately, it's not all smooth sailing, given that Aquia's punishing timer mechanic saps a lot of what makes puzzle games so enjoyable, resulting in a game that doesn't build on its strong foundations.
  • Pros: Good twist on block-matching puzzle mechanic, Different block shapes add plenty of replay value
  • Cons: Timer system makes it too tough to recover if you fall behind, Lacklustre presentation

Fast-paced DSiWare puzzler is safe for kids but challenging.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that this downloadable game for the Nintendo DSi is safe for children. However, while the block-shifting puzzles are free of controversy, they can also be extremely challenging and could frustrate younger players.

The Review Busters
24 April 2009
  • Conclusion: You have to pay $5 for this game? I feel like I was robbing Nintendo blind after buying this game but then I remembered the other games I bought during the DSi’s launch. The learning curve can be a bit of a challenge but that did not matter because I was able to play this game for over an hour and I was not bored at all. Rating Breakdown Gameplay: 9 out of 10 + Simple mechanics with great visuals. - Learning curve.
