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 :-)

Great piece of nostalgia. Doesn't slow down my phone and looks great. Would like to see the devs continue to support it.

Still Amazing. A year and a half after my first review and this wallpaper is still my favorite. That's saying something. Don't let its lack of updates deter you... it works beautifully as it is, so it doesn't really need updates.
