Ett bra spel för folk som tycket om shoot'em-up-spel som inte är så rysligt snabba. Tilläggas bör att jag tycker det är väldigt tråkigt att Firebird inte lade in tvåspelaresmöjligheten även i 64:a-versionen.

The attractive coloured graphics make Flying Shark pleasing to play at first. But after a few attempts, frustration seeps because playability is sometimes unfairly tough, and new enemy squadrons appear infrequently enough that building extra fire power is difficult. A shame, because the competent programming means the graphics and sound work to good effect. If only the playability could have been tweaked to match the quality of the Spectrum version, Flying Shark could have made an first-rate game.

ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
If you've played the arcade or Spectrum versions of this game, then the C64 version may disappoint. The gameplay has suffered through being speeded up dramatically. This only detracts from the game, and your interest will die that much sooner.

Kein sehr geistreiches Vergnügen, aber kurzweilig und auf dem C 64 gut programmiert. Was sich da an Sprite-Getümmel abspielt, ist sehenswert.

Flying Shark bietet auf dem C64 viel Scrolling, viele Sprites und Action satt. Kein sonderlich intelligentes Spiel, aber zum Abreagieren gut geeignet.

Flying Shark on the 64 is one of the better coin-op conversions available - though certainly not in the same league as Bubble Bobble.
