Don’t Go In The… Sky? Miami Shark

By John Walker on October 9th, 2009 at 8:56 pm.

I love realism in games.

I would like to take this opportunity to talk to you about Miami Shark. Miami Shark is a game in which you play a shark. Who pulls planes into the sea. Thank you for your time, and have a good day.

You see, by swimming to the bottom of the sea you can then swim up with enough velocity to fly high into the air, and once there bite onto anything flying overhead. You don’t have to concentrate on aerial enemies. There’s boats on the surface, divers at the seabed and dolphins in between. Hell, why not take out a flock of geese, then belly flop onto a yacht?

In case you don’t think it’s possible for sharks to jump out of the water and bite planes, you idiot sceptic, I’ve posted some documentary video footage below. Meanwhile, go beat each others’ high scores.

Big thanks to Kim for the tip.

    Sounds like a groovy flashified version of deathworm.

  5. Scott says:

      I loved the guy taking the lifevest and jumping right inside the shark

    • sfury says:

    I love stuff like that being presented as documentary footage.

    /me gives Walker a star

  9. mcnubbins says:

    wow, brilliant, but I think playing it too much will destroy the down arrow on my laptop.

  10. Dinger says:

    Wow. From Mr. Wiesner’s site:

    Miami Shark Take a wild ride through the action packed daily routine of a Miami Shark, the destruction and mayhem is bound to rip your face off right through the screen. Intense shark-tion includes intense explosions, mass genocide of innocents and adrenaline pumping insanity. Warning: game will blow up your monitor.

    Don’t harsh too badly on his using “intense” twice in the same sentence. I believe the author is German. That would explain the next “selling point” as well.
    In all fairness, Walker’s first paragraph is all that needs to be said. Did anybody actually read the rest before trying the game?

    I’ve pulled down the 747 and the Beluga, but I keep missing the Concorde.

    • Primar says:

      Quite honestly, something along the lines of “intensely intense intenseness” would be wholly appropriate to describe this game.

    • Urthman says:

      “Warning: game will blow up your monitor.”

      So they’re saying this is the best game since Freedom: First Resistance?

    1,265,840 first go. Got the Concorde, the Apache, and the B2.

    963,425 second go. Odd, because I got almost all the aircraft. Apache, army helicopter, Concorde, B2, space shuttle, Beluga, super transport. Lower score though.

    Awesome concept though.

    1,419,545, third go. Woohoo.

    I’m still confused about where/how the game ends. I was in the middle of pulling down (I think) the B-52 when the game ended.

    1,429,635 fourth go.

    • Hmm-Hmm. says:

      It’s on a timer of sorts. In the upper right corner you can see how many miles you still have to go.

  15. Klaus says:

    I would give it another go, but unfortunately my finger hurts. I was getting steadily better. Went into the 1,400,000′s

  16. TCM says:

    1388740, by the way

    my arm is dead

  17. Taillefer says:

    Try and get the UFO. You only know it’s there from the green beam, no icon comes up.

  18. Vaerriek says:

    1367460

    was my score (only played once)

  19. roBurky says:

    The description made it sound like DEATH WORM.

    But it’s nowhere near as good as DEATH WORM.

    DEATH WORM.

  20. Bret says:

    In the 1,200,000 range first time out. Fun!

  21. Kakksakkamaddafakka says:

    First go: 1702415

    I rulz.

  22. Kakksakkamaddafakka says:

    1702415.

    I rulz.

  23. Aisi says:

    What an awesomely intense find. Hey, I know, let’s compare scores, pretending anyone else cares! My peen is bigger!!

    • G√ľnter says:

      No, let us compare scores in the spirit of friendly competition. In order have something to measure our own successes against, driving us onward as a community like a mighty starship. The destination: Planet RPS, our mission, should we choose to accept it: have fun.

    • MD says:

      :D

      This is how to respond to bitterness.

  24. Scalene says:

  27. Dave says:

    Isn’t this based on a Michael Bay film?

  28. Rakatiel says:

    Thank you for that, so very much.

  29. Renzatic says:

    What? Seriously? A Michael Bay film? You mean you’re telling me you haven’t heard of The Miami Sharkageddon Killtacular of 1982? What the hell are they teaching kids in schools these days?

    Obviously not history, that’s for damn sure.

    1,625,250 By the way.

  34. postx says:

    Hmm sweet game with some imagination hehe

  35. Freudian Trip says:

    I Was 100% sure that last sentence said, “Go bite each others’ high scores.” I was on my way down to the comments to label you John Wa(l)ker, Pun Ma(l)ker.

  36. nutterguy says:

    Seems broken for me…
    My shark only swims down…
    :.-(

  37. ImaLetYouFinish says:

    That pic for this article reminded me of the “Miracle on the Hudson” crash landing.

  38. Zyrxil says:

    This would be fun if it didn’t require you to murder your wrist to play.

  39. Tssha says:

    1,897,725. 11/12 achievements. Going for number 12.

    This game is so many different levels of awesome. Thank you RPS, my life is more complete for knowing about this game.
