Forty Fish, Multiple Aquariums, Plus Unique Features Like Fish Feeding, And A Virtual "Fish Cam"
ALISO VIEJO, CA - Allume Systems, Inc., a division of Smith Micro Software Inc. (NASDAQ: SMSI), today released Aquazone Seven Seas Deluxe™, the latest catch in the AQUAZONE™ family and the first version available for both Windows® and Mac OS X® operating systems. Seven Seas Deluxe includes 40 different kinds of fish from goldfish, clown fish, jellyfish, sea turtles, a giant sunfish, a shark and more! Already one of the best selling interactive aquariums on the PC, Seven Seas Deluxe allows Mac users to enjoy own their own virtual aquarium.
Aquazone was the first virtual aquarium to bring an interactive element to a user's computer. In addition to Aquazone's realistic fish, tanks, and lighting effects, users can "feed" their virtual fish or "tap" on the tank to see their fish react. Aquazone is also unique in its ability to display virtually unlimited numbers of fish, even whole schools of some species.
"Aquazone is exciting because of the amazing realism," said David Polzine, Product Manager at Allume Systems, Inc. "It is the only virtual aquarium which allows interaction with your fish to "feed" them, "tap" on the tank or even follow a favorite fish via a virtual 'fish cam' and now with Seven Seas Deluxe users have the best selection of fish available. But the best part of Aquazone is you get the pleasure of owning fish even a shark, without having to clean-up after them."
Aquazone Features Include:
- 40 different kinds of salt and fresh water fish, including Jellyfish, Sea Turtles, Clown Fish
- 20 different aquarium environments, (salt water and fresh water scenes )
- Ability to have whole schools of fish with virtually unlimited numbers on the screen

- Different lighting and sound effects
- A "follow" feature that allows users to zoom-in and follow one particular fish while it swims
- Ability to buy additional types of fish and tank environments at: http://www.aquazoneshop.com/
