You are a shark. You swim off the coast of Florida. You dive in and out of the water to smash boats, and you can pull jumbo jets out of the sky WITH YOUR TEETH. You are Miami Shark. Via Rockpapershotgun.

Yes, it is as awesome as it sounds.

JUST played this. I almost died when I jumped up to bite a jumbo jet and there was a space shuttle attached to the top.

This was slightly more difficult than it should have been because I was laughing so much the entire time.

This is the kind of misinformation that makes people afraid of sharks and makes it so hard to get people interested in saving them, even though they're a very important part of marine ecosystems.

Okay, maybe not so much.

Do you want to know how awesome this game is? I'll tell you how awesome this game is: Playing it actually fixed the wonky cursor-down key on my keyboard.

If anybody ever asks about this problem in Ask MetaFilter, I'll just give them this link and tell them to pound on the stupid button until they can reliably drag helicopters into the water. It will be the best answer ever.

Fantastic!

The only thing missing from the shark is Horatio Caine sunglasses.

You're right, bwg.

I guess the game designer ...

I don't know, Greg Nog, it seems like stopping this shark...

That was great. Was the audio intentionally stuttering or was that my shitty internet hookup?

Either way ... havoc! With teeth!

Maybe we should just get a script on the posting screen that automatically adds "via RockPaperShotgun" whenever anyone makes a post about PC games?

Try as I might, I could not get sharkie to Super Jump when I wanted him to. Perhaps my slow computer is to blame.

"Eric ... did a shark just pull down a jumbo jet with the space shuttle on its back?"

"Yeah, H., it did."

"The get me a fishing pole, Eric, because that shark ... [dons sunglasses]

... is going down."

YEAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH!

I just brought down a STEALTH BOMBER. It tried to go into stealth mode, but my mighty shark jaws were just too quick for it.

Then, I chomped down on a flock of ducks as they flew south for the winter. Heh, heh, heh. Suckers.

Damn, but life is good when you're a shark.

My high score is somewhere around 1.8M. I managed to get every aircraft, I think.
posted by five fresh fish at 1:06 AM on October 10, 2009


Oh my God this is BITCHIN'.

I have not yet determined if singing this while playing improves my score, but I'm fixin' to find out.

I could use this in my English classes in Poland to demonstrate all the different kinds of watercraft to wide-eyed students.

"OK everyone, with your partner, note down the names of as many vehicles the shark destroys as you can!"

This is probably the first game that has ever really faithfully expressed how I feel, deep inside.

Why does the shark sound like a dog? Other then that amazing game.

Okay, how do I download this to my Mac, so I don't have to keep waiting for it to load when I go to the site?

My favorite little detail in this game (aside from the unspeakable awesomeness) is how it displays that little Google Maps snippet of Miami in the "miles to go" indicator. It's so authentic! It makes me feel like I'm really there...

Quality game.

I launched a space shuttle and several jumbo jets into the air.

I think I might have been playing backwards.

dmd, it sounds like your CPU may be running in reverse.

Here's how to check: play an MP3 file of some country music. See if you get your dog back, or you get your truck back, or you get your house back, or you get your wife back...
