ipad, $5.49 ★★★★ Aquaria is an in­die clas­sic, back in search of a wider au­di­ence on ipad. It’s an ab­sorb­ing ex­pe­ri­ence; an un­der­wa­ter ad­ven­ture that takes its cues from the likes of Metroid, giv­ing play­ers large maps to ex­plore that grad­u­ally open up through new songs and abil­i­ties. Aquaria is beau­ti­fully pre­sented. Its un­der­wa­ter world is rich and colour­ful, while its score is thor­oughly en­chant­ing. The touch con­trols work well, although it’s a shame play­ers must ob­scure part of the screen to guide Naija on her jour­ney. Out now.
