In Smackquarium two players fight against each other located in an aquarium. They are both playing a turtle equipped with an over-sized hammer. Their goal is to be the fastest one to collect the growing flowers and return them to their homes. As the players successfully return the flowers, their houses begin to grow, making the environment change. With this, the players also compete to win their love of their life – the yellow turtle. The yellow turtle loves big houses!

With its easy-to-learn controls and an engaging monitor as well as inputs Smackquarium offers a pleasant experience for all players, new as well as experienced. With the opportunity to see through the transparent screens, the competition between the players becomes enhanced.
