I found this game on the xbox live marketplace and thought it looked quite fun - so i decided to download it - and it proved to be a good choice and certainly worth the 400 points it cost. In the game you are a fish and have to complete several levels, each stage becoming a larger fish progressing right through to become a shark and you complete the game once you have eaten the great white shark. In each level you can only eat smaller fish than yourself or these special bubbles containing powerups - such as greater speed or bonus points. As you eat more your fish will grow and you are able to eat larger fish until you complete the stage once you eat everything. As you go through the levels it also becomes more chalenging as you must avoid obstacles such as bombs and certain fish (green ones) make you ill snd temporarily stunned. There is also a special ability by which you eat lots of fish in quick succession and unlock the ability of "feeding frenzy" where it will eat evrything available fish in one go and build up lots of points. There are also special bonus stages with different challenges, and a special time trial mode is available in which you must complete each level or stage in a designated time. This is a really fun arcade game which can become rather addictive (and sometimes irritating when you are eaten by a shark), and is certainly worth downloading, or at least donwload the demo.
