  • With its huge character sprites, vibrant colors, and old-school side-scrolling design, Clockwork Aquario should certainly charm retro gaming fans. The fact that it was never completed or released, and now has been brought back to life and finished by a modern team, adds greatly to that appeal for the old-school crowd as well. The thing is, outside of that pretty dedicated niche audience I’m not positive there’s enough here in terms of quality core play to demand more than an appreciative look. The controls are just a bit too loose, and the rules for what you can hit and how a bit too inconsistent, for it to stand on its own as a great action game and though its presentation is fantastic, it may be easier to appreciate simply taking it all in through a gameplay video than strapping yourself in to play.
