Aquales In the year 2069, the British ship "Elias Rits" sailed to Kermadec Island on a private investigation mission. Shortly thereafter, satellites reported that beacon transmissions from the ship have stopped. Seeing that further investigation required exploration of hostile environment and deep sea, the authorities dispatched a special team known as W-ODL to find out what has happened to the ship. Navigating a powerful mecha, the American pilot Fredric von Nyuya has to get to the bottom of the mystery and report his findings to the crew.

Aquales is a side-scrolling action game with considerable platforming elements. The mecha is equipped with a default fist-like melee weapon and gains access to other methods of destruction later, including chainguns, rockets, and more exotic items such as a gravity flamethrower. The environments usually consist of series of platforms and are fairly large, with optional areas and power-ups (health, shields, etc.) in treasure chests. The protagonist's stand-out equipment is the grappling hook, which must be used to access high platforms. The game also has a light RPG angle: the hero gains experience points from defeating enemies and levels up as a result. [source:mobygames]
