After looking over the remainder of the Gameboy jam I couldn’t turn down the chance to cover a game with both sharks and pirates in it. Although the pirates play a minor role in the game overall, Sharks Vs Pirates is a very interesting concept.
Created by FelipeBudinich Sharks Vs Pirates is a novel concept about a sharks journey to avoid the ever pesky pirates and swim to its freedom.
The game is very simplistic and only uses the WASD controls to move around where D will increase the speed of the shark and A slows it. It’s a nice idea although in the current form it does feel a little void and lacking of content.
Of course being a jam game this is entirely understandable as you have such a short time to get these games done, which means you will always end up leaving something out.
Although the level design does leave a lot to be desired the music is clearly a stand-out part of the game, it adds a great deal to the atmosphere of the game and helps make Sharks Vs Pirates a very interesting game.
Average play time – 5 minutes
Although Sharks Vs Pirates lacks a lot in the level design aspect overall the game has been created with a fantastic retro aesthetic with some great music that all feed into the fun that is Sharks Vs Pirates.
