DSi's Aquia Is Fun and Addictive

Art Style: Aquia Review — Challenging and Addictive

On Sunday, I spent 500 of my free DSi points on Art Style: Aquia, the Tetris, Bejeweled, Meteos mash-up that has you putting rows of same-colored blocks together in order to make them disappear. I knew the game would be fun, since I'm such a big fan of Tetris and Meteos, but I didn't realize how addictive it would be.

Not only are you being timed, but your goal is to help your undersea diver to get to the bottom of the ocean. With every second that ticks by, your diver is using up air, so you need to work fast. But if you aren't fast enough, the screen starts to turn black, meaning your diver is losing oxygen. It's a twist that gets your fingers — and your mind — working.

It may be fun, but to see the one thing that irks me about Art Style: Aquia, just

.

So while the screen turning black does make you work harder, at the same time you lose so much play area that you can't see anymore. This makes catching up almost impossible, so once half of your screen turns dark, you're pretty much screwed.

Overall though, Aquia is extremely fun, and really gets your brain juices flowing. Totally worth the 500 DSi Ware points you'll be spending to purchase.
