Aquatica - The Underwater Adventure (fl0w clone)



[Free, AppShooper]

------
From the makers of SpaceX comes a new, unique game completely in a class of its own. With its smooth, fluid gameplay, painstakingly crafted graphics, sound, and animation, Aquatica delivers hours of deeply engaging gameplay.

Aquatica immerses you into a beautiful, minimalist and serene underwater world, where you play as one of three different creatures, interact with and eat other creatures around you, and evolve and grow your creature in the process. As you complete more and more levels, your creature becomes more and more complex and beautiful. It grows and evolves naturally yet randomly, so that every time you play the game your creature will look different.

Try it now and see for yourself!

Features:
- 3 different creatures to plays as.
- Over 17 levels for each creature, for a total of 57 levels.
- Beautiful, minimalist, carefully crafted graphics, effects, and animation.
- 2 different sublime, relaxing soundtracks.
- Dynamic sound effects.
- Automatic game saving feature - never lose your game again!
- Both tilt and touch controls available.

Not bad, it has both tilt and touch controls that work well.
Only bad thing it looks too much like fl0w... How long will it survive?

Yup, but this one seems to be called "Aquatica - The Underwater Adventure".

This is actually pretty fun, and relaxing. I prefer it over spore, since the art style appeals to me more, and the sound effects are peaceful. Totally recommended, since it's free.

It really cheeses me, though, that they are ripping off someone else's work to such an extent.

I thought I'd rewrite the first part of their description:

From the makers of SpaceX comes a new, unique game completely in a class of its own. With its smooth, fluid gameplay, painstakingly crafted graphics, sound, and animation, Aquatica delivers hours of deeply engaging gameplay.

How about:

"From the makers of SpaceX comes a game completely ripped off from another company. With its smooth, fluid gameplay, painstakingly ganked graphics, sound, and animation, flOwquatica delivers hours of deeply engaging gameplay we shameless borrowed."

It just kills me that they have the nerve to call it "unique".

Well, it is pretty unique. I only know of one other game like it.
