Shark Dash is a physics based puzzle game where a shark needs to catch rubber ducks in bathtubs filled with obstacles. The shark is launched by dragging it, choosing a direction and determining the power, and then releasing it. As the shark is flung it interacts with the environment, knocking over barriers, travelling through pipes, bouncing off walls, eating ducks etc. To complete a level all ducks need to be eaten in a limited amount of moves. If a duck is released from its position, it will swim around freely and can still be eaten that way, even if the shark did not reach it initially. If the shark lands on a platform out of the water, it drowns and the level ends right away.
Up to three stars can be earned per level, for eating all ducks, for retrieving all coins in a level and for completing it in a certain amount of moves. By completing levels, coins can be earned to buy new types of sharks with different abilities, to undo moves and to retry levels. Optionally coins can be earned by watching an advertisement. Levels are unlocked gradually and take place on four continents. Levels are presented in a random order for each new game.
