‘Sharknado’ swims onto iOS

by Phil Wheat


Syfy and The Asylum have partnered with game developer Other Ocean and publisher Majesco Entertainment Company to release Sharknado: The Video Game for the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

Designed in the popular ‘infinite runner’ genre, players assume the lead role as Fin as they race to destroy a series of shark-infested tornadoes threatening New York City. The game will release prior to the July 30th premiere of Sharknado 2 – the second trailer for which has just been released (see below).

In Sharknado: The Video Game players will:

  • Run through the streets of Manhattan wielding a broadsword
  • Bounce off of the backs of tiger sharks to reach higher ground
  • Feed buckets of fish to angry sharks to avoid dying
  • Surf New York’s flooded avenues, avoiding hammerhead stampedes
  • Collect official Sharknado trading cards
  • Grab a chainsaw and fly into the heart of a sharknado, destroying it from the inside

Says game designer Frank Cifaldi:

When Majesco approached us about making a Sharknado game, we said ‘yes’ before they’d even finished asking. The game we came up with is very much in the spirit of the films: ridiculous, overblown, yet oddly sincere. We can’t wait for fans to sink their teeth into it.
