Today the people at Other Ocean (known for their work on games like Dark Void Zero and NBA Rush) were happy to announce that they and their partners Majesco Entertainment, have released a new game based on the sequel to the cult classic film, Sharknado.

This title, available on iOS, is an action-adventure game that places you in the role of Fin. You are in a race to destroy the series of shark-infested tornadoes that are threatening New York City.

Frank Cifaldi, director of the game, stated, “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.”

He went on to add, “We still haven’t seen the ‘Citizen Kane’ of video games, but at least we have our Sharknado.

The website states the following features for the game:

  • Run through the streets of Manhattan wielding a broadsword

  • Bounce off of the backs of tiger sharks to reach higher ground

  • Feed buckets of fish to angry sharks to avoid dyinh

  • Surf New York’s flooded avenues, avoiding hammerhead stampedes

  • Collect official Sharknado trading cards

  • Fly into the heart of the sharknado clutching tightly to a chainsaw

  • Learn valuable lessons about sharks…and themselves
