At first glance, Shark! looks like an aquarium simulator, belying its true nature: the big fish murders and devours the little fish. The player starts as one of the unfortunate little fish but with a healthy appetite can eventually become a big fish. Growing in size presents challenges of its own, as a larger fish has a harder time negotiating the crowded waters and avoiding inedible enemies. Fortunately, the titular shark can be killed by repeatedly nibbling on its tail, which proves to be amusingly satisfying.
Shark! Shark! was inducted on February 23rd, 2009.
