Maneater – Crazy Shark Fish Game Preview Video
Genre: Action RPG | Developer: Blindside Interactive | Release: 22.05.2020
Sharks are really misunderstood animals. They swim peacefully through the sea, play hide-and-seek in the algae jungle, help Nemo to find his father and from time to time helpless vacationers are eaten.
The last point was a lie and a common prejudice? While that’s true in reality, it definitely doesn’t apply to Maneater! Because here you slip into the skin of a very hungry shark, whose biggest hobby is attacking tourist boats. But wait, at the beginning of the game you start out a lot smaller – as a baby shark, to be exact.
As a killer shark offspring, you must first hunt small fish, turtles and other sea creatures to get stronger and grow. In the game, your progress is noticeable through leveling up, which improves your attack, defense and speed attributes. And at the latest when the shark reaches puberty, you can finally face a real boss, defeat him and unlock upgrades.
These upgrades can be bone fins for more armor or electric teeth that cripple your opponents. Alternatively, you can also pimp your passive attributes, for example with an improved … digestive system.

Once you’ve earned your walker diploma, it’s finally time to hunt down human prey. For example, you can sink fishing boats and get to know the fishermen who have fallen overboard inside and out. If people don’t want to come to you, you can just throw your massive body ashore and fidget around wildly, enjoy the sun and nibble on tourists.
But watch out, it won’t be long before heavily armed hunters are approaching. Before you can survive against them, you have to keep growing and look for your Hail while fleeing!
You notice: Maneater is anything but realistic, but all the more fun. At least if you don’t expect an in-depth gaming experience with a gripping storyline and complex gameplay. If you just fancy a short dive with human snacks, you should give Maneater a chance.
If you are still unsure, you can of course read our test first:
