Asciiquarium Live Wallpaper

Asciiquarium Live Wallpaper


Asciiquarium is an aquarium/sea animation in ASCII art. It includes multicolored fish, a whale, and a fish-eating shark.

This retro-styled live wallpaper is based on a Unix terminal program written by Kirk Baucom, which is based on ASCII art by Joan Stark. Animation may look rough, but that's the way terminals worked back then :-)

Genius Tapping at the top to drop food, to which certain fish are attracted would be great (c.f.: Insaniquarium)
