Jump to the rescue in Shark Dash

Published by at

As well as the behemoth title of The Dark Knight Returns, Gameloft have also released Shark Dash on XBox Live this week. A more traditional mobile game, that sees take on the role of a plastic shark looking to rescue his fellow bath toys from a horde of angry rubber ducks. All you need to do is eat every duck on a level to progress through the game and save your friends.

Using a similar catapult mechanic that people will recognise from Angry Bird, Sharkee (Gameloft going with an imaginative naming concept I see), can jump into the sky, or force himself under the water in the bathtub (before bobbing up, he is a bath toy after all). You're given a target number of jumps to capture all the ducks and coins, as well as a number of other targets for each level.

From the directory listing:

  • Amazingly accessible game-play, simply drag and release the shark’s tail with your finger to launch him at the ducks.
  • Dispose of the duckies, grab all the coins, and finish each level with the fewest jumps possible to earn 3 Stars.
  • Use your Stars to unlock new levels.
  • Not happy with your last shot? Undo it and try it again.
  • Make your way through 96 levels with more to come in future updates.
  • Visit 4 different environments, from ancient Rome to distant Japan.
  • Complete tons of missions & unlock loads of achievements.
