Countless legends surround the shark as a fearsome and unstoppable eating machine. Now, after many blockbuster appearances on the big screen, the toothy predator has now become a video game protagonist.
In “Maneater,” players draw a pixelated trail of blood through an animated ocean. It all starts with a young shark seeking revenge after his mother is killed by fisherman. To get bigger and faster the shark needs to eat constantly to gain body mass.
Ultimately, the goal is to bite, eat and grow. The shark has to follow various challenging missions, all the while snacking on other fish and, of course, unsuspecting human swimmers.
For example, there’s a mission called “Surf & Turf” where the hungry predator jumps out of the water onto a beach to feed on sun-bathers. That bloodbath doesn’t go unnoticed and lands you -- the shark -- in a wild battle with heavily armed Coast Guard boats.
The game doesn’t take itself too seriously and black humour is always to the fore, including a narrative voice that comments on events as if it was a nature documentary.
Behind the garish exterior there’s a sophisticated, elaborately produced game with a freely explorable underwater game world, full of very special fish food.
The game is available for PCs, the Playstation 4, and the Xbox One. A Nintendo Switch version is expected to follow later this year.
