Aquaventure 

 

I am very thankful I had the money to purchase the Evercade Multicart Atari Collection 1 cartridge. Why is that specifically? Aquaventure came included on that cartridge. Why would that matter? After all Aquaventure is an Atari 2600 video game. Why not go and purchase a cartridge on the Atari 2600? Here is the deal with Aquaventure, it was never released on the Atari 2600. I am not able to go out and purchase a copy of Aquaventure on the Atari 2600. Which is something that makes the Evercade system and its cartridges so cool.

We control a diver in Aquaventure. We must go all the way down to the bottom and then come back up. That sounds pretty simple right? Here is the deal there are multiple screens to go through to get to the bottom in Aquaventure. If that were not bad enough there are sea creatures swimming by on each of the screens. We can shoot the sea creatures for points or just avoid them on our way down to the bottom. A treasure is waiting for us at the bottom of Aquaventure.

Another aspect of Aquaventure that is fascinating is when we get back to the top we find a mermaid waiting on us. She will take us out of the water. Then the game resets and we do it all over again. The fish in Aquaventure are not as predictable as you might expect. They are not on set patterns. They will turn around and come after the player in Aquaventure. I learned to avoid and shoot them. The gameplay in Aquaventure is way better than I expected it to be. I had some major fun playing this game before I knew it had not been released before the Evercade.

The music in Aquaventure fits the theme and is fun to listen to. Aquaventure looks like an Atari 2600 video game. It looks better than some games, but it also shows its age. We will lose our diver if we make contact with any of the fish, or rocks in Aquaventure. I also learned to pay attention to my oxygen gauge in Aquaventure. We can lose a level by staying under water too long in Aquaventure. Our diver is pretty big compared to the fish in Aquaventure which is actually pretty realistic.

As many of ya’ll are aware I am very impressed by the Evercade video game system and its library of cartridges. Aquaventure is just another reason to show the Evercade is on the right tracks. Aquaventure is essentially an exclusive for this system since no one else released it in the past. I streamed some gameplay of Aquaventure and converted it into a video for our video channels. I hope you enjoyed watching it as much as I enjoyed learning it.
