Game Review: Megaquarium
Megaquarium is one of the more delightful tycoon style games I’ve played in a long time. Right from the jump the music had me reliving old FarmVille days back on Xbox 360. I loved it. That breezy no care in the world tune that you never get tired of. It really set the mood for what would be one of the best tutorial guides I’ve ever seen. Right away you begin to understand that this is more then just building and watching. There’s a level of depth in this game that is unreal. An example of that is some fish, if not properly grouped in the correct numbers, get lonely and die. Mind blowing. I felt myself really immersing into the role of park director. Making sure every fish tank had exactly what it needed. Setting up coverage routes for staff. Making sure guests had proper amenities. By the time I reached the end of the tutorial my park was running like a well oiled machine. I just sat back and watched as the tiny people gave my money and my fish flourished. It was a blast. This game offers so much and is easy to understand because it has such a comprehensive guide. If you enjoy any kind of RTS or Tycoon style game i.e. Sims, Zoo Tycoon, C&C etc. then this game is right up your ally. I highly recommend giving it a play on your preferred platform!
