Aqua Real 2

Screensavers have been around for “donkey” years and they can contain anything from movies, pictures and sound, with their popularity almost becoming a staple diet for PC users, it’s easy to see why the market has become so flooded. Originally screensavers were designed to prolong the life of your screen but these days they can also make a fashion statement.  

However with this said, there are quite a few horrendous screensavers around with some of the most memorable being aquarium screensavers and Aqua Real 2 is just one of those programs.

The Aqua Real 2 features three different "sea-world" themes with quite a few different real-world fish that move with a grace and fluidity that can only be seen in places such as the Great Barrier Reef or those have forked out a large amount of money for a salt water aquarium. Apart from that, this program is also interactive as you can actually "touch" the fish and even add your own background music, making this a truly non-visceral experience.

The installation of Aqua Real 2 was a breeze and it simply auto-installed on both our Windows XP and Windows Vista machines and once the program was installed, we were ready to be “bedazzled”.

The graphics of these screensavers are quite impressive and even though they are computer generated fish, one could almost be mistaken in thinking that they are observing a real underwater experience. Whether it's sharks or clown fish, the developers have added a 26 different fish species.

Aqua Real 2, also has a variety of options that allows the screensavers to be tweaked and best of all, the program can be run on a variety of computer systems without it taxing the resources too much. 

In conclusion, Aqua Real 2 is a must have for the PC user who wishes to make their computer experience that one step closer to tranquility and it’s easy to get lost in the vibrant colours, the realistic water effects and the fish themselves which are the stars of this program. Highly Recommended!
