Platform: iPhone Genre: Action Price: 50p ASIN: N/A Just when you
thought it was safe for your fingers to have a paddle,
everyone''s favourite iconic killer shark is back in action,
out to devour the hundreds of pairs of legs paddling in the waters off
Amity Island. On iPhone, it''s your job to guide surfers and
swimmers to the safety of the beach or rescue boats, without creating
too much of a kerfuffle that arouses Jaws'' predatory
instincts. Early levels are straightforward, but when over 30 folk need
saving, rescue boats are crashing into each other and sinking, and you
have the option of using a hunting rifle when Jaws makes an appearance
to scare him off, the action can get pretty frenetic. But the controls
are so simple that it never feels too much, or impossible to complete.
It''s simply a series of levels you have to keep chipping away
at to conquer, and subsequently unlock the later stages. It''s
cheap and addictive with a cracking retro film flavour, so when the
iTunes store offers this up to you, bite their arm off!
