Astro Shark HD is an iPhone game developed by Unit9. In this physics-based interstellar adventure, players must enter into orbit around planets and asteroids, build up speed, and fly around the universe…without ever being hit by a rocket!
The basic idea is simple. You must dive into outer space with Astro Shark to save his abducted love, Laika, the Russian space dog. Your goal? “Outsmart your pursuers, collect stars and beat everyone on the leaderboards!”
As you enter into orbit around each planetary body in Astro Shark HD, you built up enough momentum to slingshot across the stars. As each round of play begins, you will be presented with objectives like “Destroy a rocket,” “trigger a mine,” or “survive for 30 seconds.”
As the game progresses, you will meet new characters, including a space panda and a space octopus! As to why this game is called “Astro Shark” when the “shark” actually looks more like a chubby killer whale…well, your guess is as good as mine.
The visuals in Astro Shark HD are very beautiful, with a lot of personality and energy. But the best part of this game is the hypnotic, physics-based gameplay itself. It’s easy to get lost in this fun game, and realize that you’ve been playing the game for way longer than you thought.
If you liked Electric Tentacle and Nano Panda, Astro Shark is a brand new game from the same creators. With great art, fun gameplay, and a good soundtrack, Astro Shark HD is worth checking out. For just 99 cents, you get way more than a dollar’s worth of mobile gaming fun!
