I didn't expect it: Ambrosia has released a mac port of the Aquaria game after all http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/aquaria . The story of the mermaid's adventures seemed to remain available only to Windows users, but no, now everyone interested in the game "macs" can download a thirty-day demo version and get a lot of fun from the game.

The background is uncomplicated. There was a mermaid named Naija in the aquatic world of Aquaria, and one day she met a mysterious stranger… We've heard this tale more than once, haven't we? No, not like that. The plot in Aquaria is also quite interesting, so free movement around the world is quite meaningful.

It is most convenient to control the mermaid with the mouse. With the left click we set the direction, with the right we call additional actions. At first, the world is friendly: flocks of jellyfish and fish accompany Naiju on a journey, and the only inconvenience is strong currents. But the deeper we dive, the more aggressive the surrounding creatures become and peaceful coexistence with them is not the best idea. Niija has two special skills: singing and kulanaria. Cooking allows, by combining the necessary ingredients, to obtain products with useful properties such as the possibility of healing or increasing speed. With the help of the song, Naija interacts with the world: by singing the right song near the flower, you can get a valuable ingredient, the song of protection allows you to hide from external dangers behind a shield, with the help of the song, you can also switch to an "energy form" that gives our heroine the opportunity to solve issues by brute force ...

Aquaria boasts excellent graphics. No, not with "crisis" shaders, but with neat, perfectly drawn pages and cute visual effects. And the style is observed just fine, do not find fault. Music and sound effects are also on top. Background melodies do not distract and do not bother, nevertheless they are quite worthy of a separate edition.

In general, I can't even believe that all this splendor was created by a team of two people: there are too many little things and details, and the execution is excellent, so not all old-timers of the mac gaming market can boast.

Yes, I almost forgot: the pleasure costs $30.
