At GFX-BASE you can read a review of the MYST-like adventure-game Aqua. Is it as good as Myst? Find out yourself! We also have a german version of the review for you as we were also testing the brand-new german DVD-case-edition powered by Funtime-World in cooperation with the Amiga-Arena. Also, thanx to both of them for sending us a copy for the review.

|My Aqua bugbears:|
* when viewed through a GFX card the animated sequences are displayed low res so it flicks between a hi res image of a lift ( say ) and then a low res top left hand corner animation of the lift.
* Sloooow response to mouse clicks
* Cant identify items in inventory after a while ( 256 colours problem or lack of text labels? )
* Clues too cryptic to hold your interest for long.
* On the islands clicking on a certain direction does not always take you into the perspective as you would expect.
Other than that its OK. 6/10

1/ Slow response on a decent resolution on an 060 with GFX card yes.
2/ Clues too cryptic and disconnected to hold your interest compared to Myst, Riven and Return To Myst.
AKA I can think quite happily but not beyond a boredom threshold.
Items cannot be easily identified. Period.

|Just, a note on the speed issue. Try copying|
the game to your HD it runs about twice as
fast from there and is generally fairly fast
on even an 030 machine on the HD. On 060
