Intellivision HSC Season 13 - Game 4 - Shark! Shark!

Hey Matt-Man... Just curious, what system do you play on? You haven’t complained about thumb and finger pain playing this one LOL 😂 

I have an original 2609 wood grain Intellivision that is modified to play games in full HD. I don’t typically have issues with the controller, I’m very used to them after all these years. It doesn’t hurt to play Shark Shark at all, that’s an easy one on the hands as far as I’m concerned. The ones that do hurt a bit are the shooters that demand the side buttons be pressed all the time, like Space Armada and Worm Whomper coming up next week. I usually have a sore thumb for awhile after playing those.

Cool! Maybe I’m pressing the keypad button harder than I have to.

Yeah I think you may be. The keypad buttons shouldn’t be hard on your hands. Plus you might damage the membrane under the keypad, and I’m sure you don’t want that. 😊

Lol cuz of Shark Shark! the tip of my right ring finger has gone numb. All the finger does is help hold the controller. Weird....

Absolutely.  I can kill quite a few. It’s a timing and counting thing (Number of turns the Shark takes) that is hard to execute, but is definitely doable.

Yeah, 90k seems to be my wall, or at least where the rapid demise starts. 🙂

Loving this game! Never really got into it too much until now. (I didn't know how to kill the shark until this round.)

Awesome, glad to hear you are enjoying it.  It's definitely a fun game, and gets even better as you improve and kill the sharks.  Developers did a great job on it!

Thank you! Likewise Matt!...

 

I really went for it... don't know about improvement... I may give it one more go over the weekend.

 

What I did different, was while trying to nibble shark tail, I went UP/DOWN, a hair earlier in my timing,... almost feels too soon, but because the speed is so great after 100ks, I swim low, then vertical,... then when the shark dances left right, I zoom up or down and tail touch on my way, its slow and tedious, not fool proof, but it still can work often!

 

As long as he's dancing... left and right, super bowl beyonce GIF

 

The fish around me over 100ks are equally dangerous because they stop your fish from avoiding Jawsy. The worst I think though, is that Crab that pops way high, really cannot navigate well with him jumping most the screen. :(

 

Building ability, experience and skill helps too.

You got a good plan there!  I start high after 100k then dart low, and then back and forth from there.  And yeah fish and crusties always seem to get in the way.  So it's very similar!  Great job!

Damn... 99 lives??? I usually start hemorrhaging lives by 60 or 70 k.

Yup me too, that's when the demise begins..... My 'max' in extra fish is 54, lame compared to these shark experts here.... 😝

Thanks Rick!, Time to de-numb :D

Wasn't easy... I really had to knuckle down, You still got the weekend to get the most out of it..., and nice improving from 80ks.

 

My controller spring is flat after this lol.

 

I'm gonna try to include a couple Youtube Videos of gameplay, maybe can help in the 80k and 90s areas.... world record 120ks? My BUTT ;)
