The Shark is a bit of a push-over and I feel bad for him. I actually consider my little fish as more of a Shark than the actual shark.

 

Up until about 40-50 k points. Then Mr Shark gets tired of my antics and his behaviors really start to get interesting.

The game is alot of fun, hard, but fun.... 👍

 

I played this morning and I had a pretty big fish going, then some killer crustacean from the bottom leapt up and snagged my ass. What is that thing, a crab, a lobster, a gargoyle, lol....? 😜

They are both crabs and lobsters, and you can get a free life if you grab them on the way down!!

But only at level four and higher!

If you mean your fish is size 4 or higher, then you are correct!

That's if your fish is size four or higher.  Level four is when you've reached 50k points.

Love Monk... I, on the other hand, was annoyed I couldn't get even 1 fish on my last 5 lives, to *not* have that exact score. 🙂

Sorry Biffman. 😉. But I know you’ll be back with an even higher score.

Possibly, although the pressure is on to hit nice round scores or Monk will be a nervous wreck. 

 

(Congrats!!) 🙂

I’m coming for you guys...


fun fact, I was so terrified of the shark as a kid in the late 80s that I didn’t even realize you could bite his tail until last October!

Never biting the shark's tail would make for an entirely different play experience! I'll have to give that a try sometime. 🙂

Yeah occasionally, after a narrow escape, my fish would accidentally clip the shark and I’d hear the “blip” sound as if I just ate something, but I could never figure out how it was happening.

 

How about those weird times when you bite the sharks tail and it instantly spins around, but then you somehow manage to bite its face? Any of you ever encounter that? 
 

i don’t think you’re actually biting the head... more like a double bite on the tail that coincides with a reversal.
