Eat and grow in an underwater kingdom to become strong enough to face Shark King
Windows XP / Windows ME / Windows 98 / Windows 98 SE / Windows 2000
Your goal is to get to become a master of the ocean.
The game takes place underwater as you try to consume the smaller animals in the ocean to get to the top of the food chain. While you're swimming in the water, you want to find the Shark King to destroy him. As you're trying to find him, you'll come across a variety of challenges and a few characters who don't want to let you get past them. This is when you have to choose whether you want to eat them or if you want to try to fight to get around. At the same time, there are large monsters that are trying to eat you as well. It seems like you're tossed into the path of these monsters at times, which really isn't fair through the game, but it does make the game more challenging.
There aren't any weapons while you're swimming. If you can't eat the fish and other items you come across fast enough, then you're going to lose a life. You don't start with many lives to get through the game, which is a challenge in itself. As you complete some of the challenges, you can earn more lives. This is a fast game with a lot of action at one time. A map is in the corner of the screen to show you where to go in the water. You can usually see a large dot when there is a bigger monster in the ocean. The graphics have a cartoon quality, making them fun to look at while you're playing. However, the sounds in the game could use some improvement because you get lost in your environment at times without all of the typical underwater sounds.
Dive into the simplicity of Feeding Frenzy, a classic computer game that pits your tiny fish against a sea of monsters waiting to devour him. The name of the game is to chomp your way to a bigger protagonist while encountering a vast array of enemies that don't wish the best for your little fish.
The cartoon styling of the game's design is reminiscent of the movie Finding Nemo. You are in a bright, colorful world of sea creatures and objects. You begin as a small fish with bigger fish surrounding you. There are always a few fish smaller than you, which you can consume to crank up the grow-meter and make your fish grow larger. The larger you grow, the more enemies you can consume. Each new level brings an onslaught of new enemies, so things never get boring, but the dynamics of the game are steady throughout. This is a repetitive game for some folks.
You work your way up through hundreds of different levels until you are faced with the biggest monster of them all, who is your mortal enemy the Shark King, and he does not play around. This is an end-boss concept that makes the game feel like you've actually beaten it when you reach the end, but the way to defeat the Shark King is as simple as the other enemies. You simply grow big enough to consume him and take your rightful place as the king of the sea.
Feeding Frenzy is simple enough for children to play it, but it's fun enough for adults to get a kick out of it, too. Thousands of people flock to the sea for some simple Feeding Frenzy action. It is an excellent little time waster that is truly fun for the folks that play it. The download is smooth and the game is old enough to have been tweaked and ready to play right out of the box or out of a download. You won't encounter a lot of diversity in this game, though. The biggest complaint is that you do the same thing over and over. For some people, that's fine because the sound effects and graphics are amusing enough to make this a very addictive game right off the bat.
