  1. Featuring elegant design, polished graphics, and pick-up-and-play addictiveness; the Art Style series is a perfect-fit for DSiWare. The game's rather traditional concept, mixed in with a unique twist, creates one of the most fresh and enjoyable puzzles on any handheld. Trust us, you won’t be disappointed with Art Style: AQUITE.
  2. Art Style: AQUITE has the risk of going unnoticed, but it truly presents one of the most interesting proposal of this first wave of DSIWare titles, and in fact, regardless its origins, is a puzzle that has delighted us and we only miss any sort of multiplayer option.

    Puzzle fans really should not miss out.
  4. 75
    It's a little bare-bones, but Art Style: AQUITE is unique and addictive.
  5. It's a pleasant game, but that's about it.
  6. Art Style: Aquia is an original take on the match-three puzzle genre, and its ominous setting make for a nice puzzle environment. However, it lacks variety and is quite difficult.
  7. The tasteful, minimalist aquatic theme of Art Style: Aquite appears designed to offset what is actually a rather tedious sorting game.

    A serviceable puzzle game with a unique presentation, AQUIA is a decent entry in the DSiWare Art Style series. I found it to be a bit confusing at first, but once I got the hang of it managed to perform capably. However, it's worth noting I did have some success by simply randomly pushing pieces around when the screen was close to becoming fully dark; not enough to advance very far, but worth mentioning nonetheless.
