Aqua Panic!, a colourful underwater puzzle game developed for PS3 and PSP, will launch on PlayStation Network on 8th April. A giant hurricane has drawn thousands of fish from the ocean and scattered them all over Earth. In response to this huge environmental disaster, water tanks have been created around the world in order to help send all the fish back to sea. The goal of each level is to help a specific number of fish to reach their natural habitat and back to safety. Players will make use of numerous tools that allow interaction with the environment and to guide the water's flow in which the fish are carried.
- Adventure Mode: In this mode, a set number of fish must be lead to the exit safely. Players have to complete each level in a set order, thus travelling through each of the five “seasons” with increasing difficulty. The adventure starts in Spring, continues with Summer, Autumn, Winter before finally descending to the hellish Inferno! New tools or elements are introduced via cut scenes between levels.
- Free Mode: Players can select any level unlocked in the Adventure mode, with additional access to the store in which new tools can be bought to aid progress. This mode gives the opportunity to aim for the highest scores, to collect as many medals as possible in order to buy more new equipment.
- Survival Mode: In this mode, players have a set number of fish that they will have to lead throughout a series of levels. Players must save at least one fish among those rescued from the previous level. The game ends when there are no fish left to save.
