Agartha is an action/adventure fantasy game about a bottlenosed dolphin named Kuros who has to save the world from creatures called the Moirae, whom have invaded Agartha, the last inhabitable place on Earth. For 500 years Agartha was protected by a powerful shield constructed by an ancient civilization called Lemuria. The game involves using your sonar to communicate with dolphins and orcas throughout the game, there will be puzzles to solve and objects to find along the way. The current version has a completable single level and a boss at the end, if you manage to beat the game you'll obtain a bonus item you can use if you wait through the Epilogue and attempt to play the game over. The game was inspired from Sega's Ecco the Dolphin series, however this game is completely unique, because you get to use special items and weapons.

You are Kuro's a bottlenosed dolphin, throughout the seas of Agartha you will find Lemurian devices created for cetacean's: Dolphin's Orcas ect... These Lemurian devices consist of Shields, Laser Blasters, Photon Torpedos, Health Jars, and Air Jars. Items are all consumable, meaning when you use an item you will need to collect that item again if you plan to use it.
As a bottlenosed dolphin you will be required to find sources of air. Air can be found by swimming toward the surface, finding air pockets, or finding plants that release air. Health Jars and Air Jars are used for replenishing your Health and Air respectably. You can replenish your health other ways by eating fish or consuming the contents of a clam. Because you're going to need to constantly replenish your breath, you will need to pay attention to the air bubble located next to the health bar. When you run out of air the air bubble will blink and make a sound indicating you need to find air soon, if you wait too long your health will subtract and ultimately your character will die. The shield item provides air, so if you're using the shield you don't need to surface for air!
