This game deserved great success. Too bad it came so late.

Screen Shots

Shark! Shark! is another one of those refreshingly original games Mattel produced towards the dismal end of the Golden Age of the console. The soundtrack is excellent - I just wish that you didn't have to end the game to hear the main theme! The 9-year-old daughter of a close friend of mine - who holds her own on N64 and other newer consoles - loves this game! That's how fun it is - a jaded child from today's world of gaming can even enjoy this one!

Title Screen Aqua blue variant of the standard title screen.
What we had before aquarium screen savers... Although the playfield can seem somewhat cramped, this game is tons of fun. And the music!
