FIRST LOOK: Screenshots From the Upcoming Sharknado iOS Game



There’s no real equivalent in video games for “so bad it’s good.” Yes, many have campy subjects, but you never hear game players going “Ha ha! I just totally botched that move because the controls on this game are so crappy! That’s hilarious!”

What I’m saying is that the Sharknado game needs to be a whole lot (objectively) better than the movie it’s based on. Will it? Let’s see and speculate…


? 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 dying
? Surf New York’s flooded avenues, avoiding hammerhead stampedes
? Collect official Sharknado trading cards
? Grab a chainsaw and fly into the heart of a sharknado, destroying it from the inside
