The object of the game "Sharks!" is to get the highest possible score, by steering the swimmer across the sea from bottom left to the bay at the top right, without being eaten by sharks on the way! Fortunately this swimmer has three extra lives (as shown by the red rectangles at top left).
Use the arrow keys (either set on your keyboard, whichever works best for you) to steer the swimmer and avoid the sharks. You can go forwards, left, right and even backwards. For continuous motion hold the key down.
Every time you make it across safely, you get another 50 points. However, every time your score increases by another 100 points, another shark will appear! There is NO limit to the number of sharks, unfortunately, so just remember you only have four swimmers.
