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 :-)

Wonderfull! I fall in love with it! It's so relaxing and I like that you can kill the fish by tapping on them. The fish eating shark is so funny.
