Can you brief me on the controls?
Sure! Your chosen shark will drop down into the sea when you start a game. Use your finger to steer and tap to boost whenever you need some thrust! You can also boost out of the water with the Jetpack and you'll rocket off into the sky!
Can I change the controls?
The game controls are suited for both right and left handed players so you can control your shark as you want.
The game is automatically set up with Touch Control but you can switch to Tilt Controls whenever you want.
When I use tilt controls, my shark doesn’t go where I want it to go...
It’s easy: from the home screen, select the settings wheel in the bottom left corner and tap on the Options tab from the drop-down menu. You can also change the controls during a game by tapping on the pause button in the top right corner of your screen to open the options menu.
You can switch the control scheme by tapping on the “Change controls” button. You can move the cursor to change the Tilt sensitivity and calibrate the sensor for the best control experience. You’re ready to chomp!
No worries! It might be that your device is not well calibrated. Calibration is very important if you want to play smoothly. Head to the options menu from the home screen or during a game press the Calibrate button. Hold your smartphone or tablet in a comfortable position and then press Calibrate again when you’re ready!
How do I use 3D Touch on iOS?
If your device features the 3D Touch feature, you just need to move about in the game as normal, but instead of using your second hand to boost, press harder on the screen when you want to boost. Don't worry, this won't disable the good old fashioned option to use your second finger to boost! Please check on Apple Developer website to know if your iOS device is compatible.
Can I change the language of the game?
Yes, you can! Hungry Shark Evolution is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Japanese, Simplified and Traditional Chinese.
I've got ideas, can I tell you about them?
From the home screen, select the settings wheel in the bottom left corner and tap on the Options tab from the drop-down menu, then on Language Select to switch the language of the game.
We would love to read your ideas! Please write to us with suggestions for changes or additions to the game in a support ticket. You can create a new ticket by tapping on the “Contact Support” button at the bottom of the FAQ page. Please select the General/Feedback label to make sure it reaches us. Thank you!
