Aquazone Seven Seas Deluxe
Allume today released for Mac OS X, its interactive virtual aquarium which includes 40 different kinds of fish from goldfish, clown fish, jellyfish, sea turtles, a giant sunfish, a shark and more. Allume says that Aquazone was the first virtual aquarium to bring an interactive element to a user's computer. In addition to Aquazone's realistic fish, tanks, and lighting effects, users can "feed" their virtual fish or "tap" on the tank to see their fish react. Aquazone also offers the ability to display virtually unlimited numbers of fish--even whole schools of some species. It offers different lighting and sound effects, and a "follow" feature that allows users to zoom-in and follow one particular fish while it swims. It is available for $25 with the ability to buy additional types of fish and tank environments.
