I have always loved products made by FOXEYE, and Water Leaves is another great game to add to my collections. For a gamer who wants adventures filled with lots of deep underwater explorations, you'll find this game to be quite interesting, specially for people with underwater/drowning fetish. Plunge into an adventure which will take you to the vast and deep waters of Water Leaves.

Gameplay, I would say, not so boring yet not so action-packed either. It's an exploration and item collection type of game. The main driver for the adventure is getting into new areas after improving your own clothing and equipments. And you get to improve your equipments and get more items by searching for components to improve or create them. That's where more adventure comes in. If you find yourself drowning or failing often in certain levels, it must be either because you need better equipment or some items, or there are several things that you may have missed. One rewarding thing that you should find interesting is that you get to unlock more extra-game features and new places as you progress through the game. Your player's outfit also changes, and I would say that it's rather something to look forward to.

Characters are well drawn and animated in 3D, and so are the big environments where you get to explore on. Game graphics may be nothing compared to modern game's graphics, but this is one of the good looking underwater exploration games out there where you get to control a girl, other than FOXEYE's sensuii game and Blue Port.

Twenty bucks for this game isn't that bad. Overall, I rate this product a four out of five, and I highly recommend it to people with underwater/drowning fetish.

Anyone who has interests in puzzles, mixed with lots of underwater settings, should find AQUA CUBE as a very interesting game. The puzzles of the game aren't that difficult if you have the time and patience to solve them. It just requires a bit of creativity and some thinking in order to be solved. I'd actually say that this is one of the many puzzle games that I've enjoyed a lot. The challenges have really got me thinking, and most stages are even thrilling as you'd get a time limit when the girl you're rescuing is restrained underwater.

The 3-D game designs are well done. The characters which you play looks cute and awesome as they appear somehow like their chibi forms. The idea of situating this puzzle around a cube is also a very interesting idea for a 3-D puzzle game. There's also a helpful stage panning which can help you plan to solve the puzzle.

I do appreciate the Developer's efforts to translate the game into English, but it takes some time to understand what is meant by the dialogs and stuffs like that. Still, the game isn't very much focused on those dialogs anyway, so the cool and challenging gameplay overcomes that.

As for gameplay, you get to use the mouse which I think is a very comfortable and efficient way to play the game. As you also progress through the game, you get to other worlds which shall offer more challenges than the previous ones. And there's also a very handy "restart" button if you ever get yourself stuck in any of the stages.

I highly recommend this game to people with Underwater Fetish, and those who got lots of patience solving a puzzle where you might sometimes find yourself doing trial and error. I'm sure that you'd get to love this product. Overall, I rate this product a five out of five.
