I’ve bought this game some humble bundle ago, but I played it last week to test the joypad…and I must admit that I’ve been surprised of the beauty of this little game.

Aquaria is a 2D sidescrolling action-adventure computer game designed by the independent game company Bit Blot, which developed and originally published the game. After more than two years of development, the game was released in 2007 for Windows.
