No Joke - Sharknado: The Video Game Is Out On iOS

They tried to warn us. Well, I tried to warn you anyway.

Now it’s here, and since it’s packing tornadoes with sharks inside, it’s possible that there’s nowhere safe to run. I’m talking about Sharknado: The Video Game, now available for $2.99 on the iOS App Store. Completely coincidentally released the same week that Sharknado 2: The Second One is preparing to smash onto SyFy (#WinkyFace), the game was designed with tongue firmly in cheek by developer Other Ocean and publisher Majesco Entertainment. As director Frank Cifaldi puts it:

The Sharknado movies already exhibit a strange video game logic, so translating them into a work of interactive art wasn’t much of a challenge. We still have a soft spot for the licensed games of our childhoods, the ones that took a lot of strange liberties in the name of fun, and I think we’ve succeeded in bringing that feeling to the 21st century. We still haven’t seen the ‘Citizen Kane’ of video games, but at least we have our Sharknado.

Sharknado-screenWell said, Frank. Well said.

Other Ocean says this is the only game that will allow you to run through the streets of New York with a broadsword, bounce of the backs of tiger sharks to reach higher ground, surf flooded streets to avoid hammerhead stampedes and fly into the heart of a sharknado clutching a chainsaw. I’d be very surprised if the studio was wrong about any of that. If, for some reason, you need to find out more, you can do so at SharknadoGame.com.
