After you have installed Aqua Real II, click on the short cut on your computer desktop. What you’re about to open is not merely a computer program. The window you open extends from your desktop to an open ocean with no end. Groups of fish swimming and chasing one another, as if they are flowing silk scarves in the ocean current. Sunshine penetrates through the ocean and onto the blue coral reefs, painting a misty glamorous scene.
Feel free to tickle every fish, feed them well so that they do not get hungry, or you can call upon sharks to play some harmless virtual pranks. You may also pick a few pieces of lovely music for your play list and let Aqua Real II lull you into a sense of carefree existence.
The fish from Aqua Real II are no longer simple polygons and fuzzy images. With the power of the next generation Aqua Real II biological engine, there are more delicate shots and more detailed displays. The picturesque view of the swimming fish is as lifelike as it can be. Fish operculum heave slowly with each breathing motion, and the eyeballs roll agilely like a real live fish in front of you. They swim swiftly like floating clouds or flowing water, and they will suddenly stop and catch the food you spray out. You can also see the Palette Surgeonfish’s dorsal fin sticking up due to the decrease in the current pressure. Different kinds of fish have different swimming postures. Each of them have specialized skills, like the glowing colors of derma glossing and its detailed realistic outline model, demonstrating various lifelike traits of sea fish.
The occasional appearance of Moonfish and Sailfish cruising freely is refreshing. You can watch schools of fish swimming. You can even summon sharks to visit your coral reefs through the Aqua Real II’s interactive menu. Hermit crabs crawl to the top of the reef, beautiful sea slugs slowly appear on some corners of coral reefs; all in all, they enrich the whole cline, making it a lot more vivid and a lot more colorful.
