Hungry Shark World now has its own FaceBook page and Twitter Page. It is the successor of the famous Hungry Shark Evolution. The game has used a more cartoonish graphics style and contains more sharks. All of its sharks exist today (except for Megalodon and Dunkleosteus, Mr Snappy, Helicoprion and the Robo Shark). Unlike in Hungry Shark Evolution, all the «Sharks» are legitimate and are not creatures that aren't actual sharks (excluding Big Momma (Dunkleosteus) and Killer Whale). The game now has its own pages, and it was kept a secret for a while but it is now revealed by the Hungry Shark Community and now includes Ubisoft, FGOL, and the Evolution Page. The game has many features, such as Mega Gold Rush and four different locations various in the World. The shark in the icon is the Great White, that is also shown in the icon of every other Hungry Shark game, however, it has been changed multiple times and was once the Porbeagle and the Bull Shark.


Hungry Shark World is an aquatic adventure where the player controls a shark. Hungry Shark World features a wide range of different aquatic creatures and even non-aquatic creatures, such as humans. There are also 2 different types of currencies, gems, and coins. As the player progresses through the game, there are many different missions to do, 4 different locations on the world map to explore and special locations to visit.

In Hungry Shark World, there are 7 different tiers of sharks, ranging from XS to !!. Each level of shark contains 3-4 different sharks with different looks and stats, with the exception of XS, that contain only the Blacktip Reef Shark (XS) respectively. Each level of shark progressively has a larger diet, allowing the player to be able to eat more and more creatures on the map. Each level of shark also has generally improved stats from the last level, which are represented in numbers. The 3 stats are known as Speed, Bite and Boost, which all can be upgraded a certain number of times for a particular shark with coins, with the price going up for bigger and bigger sharks.

There are several different menus as well. There is the shark menu, that allows the player to view and buy the many different sharks in the game. There is also the personal shark menu, that allows the player to customize the shark he/she has chosen with pets, gadgets, accessories or maps. The player is also able to upgrade his/her shark on this menu. There is also the map selection menu, where the player is able to choose one of the 5 locations he/she wants to play in. The player can also view the 3 missions he/she currently has and the leaderboards. There is also the settings menu, that allows the player to customize music volume, language, no blood mode, cloud saves, and view support and credits.


Hungry Shark World is played in sessions. A gameplay session can be initiated by pressing the play button, indicated by two arrows, on the map menu, after the player has selected a location to visit. All game sessions start with the screen zooming into a shark's mouth, (which can be very scary if your shark is an XXL shark unless if you have No Blood mode on) then the shark falling from the sky from a certain location into the ocean. The general goal of the game is to survive for as long as possible through eating different creatures, while also completing missions or collecting coins. The shark that the player controls will eat anything near its mouth which is in its diet. If the player is unable to eat that creature, a notification will pop up suggesting the minimum shark level the player has to use in order to be able to eat that creature. The boundaries of the game are the far left and right, the sky and the floor of the ocean. These boundaries can be seen if the player has unlocked a map of the location he/she is in, which can be purchased on the personal shark menu.

Consuming many creatures in a short time also gives multipliers. These multipliers enhance the score the player gets from consuming creatures. In order to keep the multiplier, the player has to constantly eat creatures. Otherwise, the multiplier expires. Challenges may appear in different locations where you must equip a certain shark or shark of a certain size to take part.Some challenges may require you to equip certain apparel to take part. Taking part in a challenge will reward you with either gems or gold depending on how well you do.

The controls of the game are through a virtual D-pad on any part on the screen but can also be switched to tilt control via settings.


Hungry Shark World has two currencies, the standard currency, coins, which is used for all non-premium items and is earned from either eating creatures in a gold rush, eating golden creatures or through paying real life money, and gems, that can be earned from gemfish or gem birds, or through using real life money and are used for premium items such as upgraded maps.

Both coins and gems can be earned during a game session, although gems are harder to earn than coins.

You can earn coins by completing missions, eating anything golden, eating things during a Gold Rush, Mega Gold Rush, and Hungry Rush, eating Good Junk, surviving for a long time, and contests. You can also purchase gems with real-life currency.

You can earn gems by eating gemfish and gem birds, winning contests, opening chests, opening mystery chests, and sometimes by eating man-made structures, like boats, submarines, drones, jetskiis, and choppers/helecopters. You can also purchase gems with real-life currency.
