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! The game controls are suited for both right and left handed players so you can control your shark the way you want.
Can I change the controls?
The game is automatically set up with Touch Control but you can switch to Tilt Controls whenever you want. It’s easy: from the home screen, select the settings wheel in the top left corner and toggle the Tilt Controls switch to activate. You’re ready to chomp!
When I use tilt controls, my shark doesn’t go where I want it to...
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 and 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 the Apple Developer website to know if your iOS device is compatible.
Can I change the language of the game?
Yes, you can! Hungry Shark World is available in English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, Turkish, Russian, Korean, Japanese, as well as Simplified and Traditional Chinese in the corresponding territories only.
