Shark Week: Shark Strike

Posted by Matt Bonaccorso on


They’re fierce, ferocious and feared by all.  Usually, they leave us in “Shark and Awe”. But until you’ve swum with them,  studied them, or watched them, you just won’t know what it is to be a shark!  Discovery’s Shark Week presents ‘Shark Strike,’ the first official Discovery Shark Week app.

In this side-scrolling adventure game, you are no ordinary shark.  When a group of big bad “Boss” Orcas come around and snatch up your shark pups, you set off on an epic quest to get your babies back!  You start off as a Reef Shark, but as you build up the skills, experience and shark points necessary,  you can climb up the predator food chain into a Blue Shark, Bull Shark, Thresher Shark or even a Great White!  Each type of shark comes with special abilities and attributes—from chomp to speed to stamina. It is your goal to maximize each shark in order to reach your full potential and save your pups.  Even the humble Reef Shark has what it takes! 

Life in this ocean is tough!  Thrust into the open water, players must  eat prey to survive and  avoid the dangers of the sea.  Make it far enough and you’ll face your biggest challenge—the “Boss” orca himself!   Sharks aren’t just mindless man-eating machines, but magnificent creatures trying to survive. You’ll have three challenging multi-level underwater worlds-- the Tropics, the Arctic and Ancient Ruins to explore as you hunt the bad guys down!

Swipe, tap and shake as you battle through each level. Earn Shark Points and Clams as you gobble down prey, achieve high scores and if your lucky, come across the daily ‘Loot Drop!’  Use your points to super-charge your shark powers:

  • Chomp: Make your bite more powerful to take down bigger prey and do more damage!
  • Speed: Maximize your ability to dash out of danger!
  • Stamina: Recover more quickly and last longer in the game!


Transform into five different sharks:

  • Reef Shark—you’re young, hungry and small
  • Blue Shark—your advantage is speed!
  • Bull Shark—powerful and able to hold your own!
  • Thresher Shark—able to hurt to anything in the sea!
  • Great White Shark—the ultimate apex predator


Explore three different beautifully detailed oceanic worlds:

  • The Arctic, frigid, frozen  but filled with life!
  • The Tropics, a warm tropical paradise!
  • The Sunken City, filled with overgrown ancient ruins!

Build your strength for epic ‘Boss’ battles that could win you back your shark pups!

App features include:

  • Pinpoint controls let you glide out of danger, attack prey and on the path to rescuing your pups!
  • Realistic and compelling sound effects
  • A wide range of realistic prey—from Angel Fish to Rays, Atlantic Mackerel to Seals, Eels to Catsharks!
