Aquarium and Fantasy Aquarium are indeed two different games, separated like twins at birth but after a long separation and after long last, have been brought back together. If you are familiar with one game, then you will immediately be familiar with the other.
Is it worth buying both games? It depends on whether you prefer vanilla or cookie dough ice cream…really…. Since the mechanics of both games are essentially the same, we’ll take a look at the similarities first.
Aquarium is a fish sim, much like Zoo Tycoon. Build the habitat, choose your critters, and keep them alive. It sounds simple, but Aquarium can be a piece of work if you want to devote a lot of time and attention to the game. You have a total of five tanks, each with up to ten fish and ten aquarium fixtures (rocks, decorations, etc.). You are in control of the water temperature, pH levels, light color, aquarium background (if you want that fake paper stuff with the plants or Hawaiian sunset), and rock color. Also, your fish need to be kept happy with food and a clean tank. Last but not least, each of your fish can have a name, and you can scroll and monitor each fish’s emotional and physical wellbeing.
Here’s the official game Overview:
Create and manage your very own fish tank, populate it with a wide variety of fish and other marine animals, create an enjoyable environment for them with a range of accessories.
Control every aspect of your Aquarium from the water temperature to the salinity, clean the fish tank and feed your fish to maintain their health
Aquarium offers the player more than 30 well know fish to chose from, including the Clown Fish, Angelfish, Neon Tetra and Guppy. Use the Wi-Fi feature of the DS to connect to your friends aquariums and allow your pet fish to explore your friends Aquariums.
The more better you look after your fish, the more fish will become available for you to own!
