Super Aquatic Games Starring the Aquabats
There's nothing fishy about Seika's Super Aquatic Games. Although the controls require practice, tadpoles will enjoy this simple fish Olympics. Older players, however, will want something with a little more bite.
Aquatic Games pits one-to four-player teams against the clock in eight beachy-keen events. The games are variations of tiddlywinks, leap frog and other childhood faves, with charming marine characters and cute obstacles thrown in. You balance a ball on a moving seal's nose, jump on shells to flip them up to pop balloons, and teach a shark to ride a unicycle. Score points to enter bonus competition, then win events for medals.
ProTip: In Hop, Skip and Jump jump as soon as the Electric Eel Hurdles appear.
The cartoony graphics and funny sounds place this game squarely in the Beginner's Pool. The controls, which require simultaneous multiple button- pressing, could drown some dog paddlers. It's worth the effort, though. Kids, go for the Goldfish!
