Surfing Board: When you have it equipped, all enemies that run into you will turn around.

Cactus Cane: While on the air, press K to boost downwards, damaging and bouncing off of enemies beneath you.

Yo-Yo: Press K to launch your yo-yo, which will go through walls, stunning enemies and bring items towards you. Press K while the yo-yo is extended to bring it back immediately, leaving the items behind.

Not bad!

When I first started to play pressing the right arrow caused an error and I had to close the game. Thought I was stuck at the tall wall until re-reading the directions and that I had to bite the wall! Sharky also bites tiny walls which can get confusing if you accidentally press the button, but Id say just playing for longer would get you used to it. Over all, I enjoyed it!


Thanks for the feedback. I'll try to fix the right arrow thing.


Ok, I fixed it. Thanks for informing me about this! I hope you'll try out my game in the future.

sounds simple for a first time game as posted in forums! yes it's a cool idea I think and you should maybe add in some sea creatures if you are a shark!! like Jellyfish and maybe even collect small fish for energy boosts and larger ones for larger energy boosts! yeah, and some special blowfish might actually make you move faster while others make you move slower, much more of a challenge... just an idea. I been designing games since 2008

I'll add more underwater enemies. As I said, this is a super early beta. But I don't think I'll add power ups, I'd rather focus on the weapons and Sharky's abilities.


this is the best game.

But you said that about Half-Line Miami too.
