What is a Skin and how do I get it?
It's time to pimp your shark! Skins are special accessories allowing you to change the appearance of your favourite sharks. Some skins, called Epic skins, also offer a bonus when equipped.

You can buy normal skins for gold or gems, and Epic skins can be acquired within Starter Packs through direct purchase. When you get a new shark, the corresponding Starter Pack will appear for 48 hours with a timer showing how much time you have left to purchase it. Every pack includes gems, coins, a baby and an Epic skin with a passive skill to help you boost your new shark! When acquired, scroll towards the end of the shop to find your skin and tap to equip or remove it.

Why can't I find the Giant Enemy Crab, Arctic Portal, or Enemy Big Daddy?
Unfortunately, certain content like the Giant Enemy Crab, the Portal, the enemy Megalodon, and the Enemy Big Daddy haven't been applied to low / medium-end devices. This is due to memory limitations and the fact that certain devices aren't powerful enough to support the extra content.

We always work towards making the game available for lower spec devices, but cannot always guarantee results. However, we still suggest that you update regularly to ensure the performance and stability of the game.
Thank you for your understanding!

I've got ideas, can I tell you about them?
Yes! But please share all suggestions for changes or additions to the game in our community here: HTTP://BIT.LY/HSEC-UBI
The support email is primarily for technical issues, this way the team can focus on helping people who are having trouble with the game itself. We have more than one game, so there is usually a lot to get through!

How do I beat the Giant Enemy Crab?
To defeat the Giant Enemy Crab, you have to first dodge its attacks so its weakspot is exposed (flashes green). Once exposed, make sure to boost into it to cause damage.
Also, the Crab Fork will aid you with double damage!
Each crab has a different spawn time. You may have to wait before it appears again.

How do I beat the Enemy Megalodon / Big Daddy?
You will need to be a Megalodon or larger shark to defeat the Enemy Megalodon and you will need to be the Big Daddy or larger to beat the enemy Big Daddy. However, if your shark is smaller, try and catch them during Gold Rush!

I killed the Giant Enemy Crab, where is he now?
There are 4 Giant Enemy Crabs to be chomped and they all live in their very own lair! Giant Enemy Crab #4 is much bigger and stronger than the others. He only shows up once the other crabs have been defeated, but he is not always in. This last boss enemy can respawn and caries high rewards, but the respawn rate after defeating him is much lower; try reaching a high score to increase the chances of him spawning.

What is different about Special Sharks?
Special Sharks are creations of Professor Kempstein. They come with fantastic special powers and they're great fun!
They are only found in the Special Lab, which is accessible by tapping the icon "Special Sharks" on the bottom left of your Evolve Menu; to unlock the Special Sharks, you need to achieve a high score of at least 500,000.
Don't forget that Special Sharks don't grow like regular sharks and you can't buy accessories for them!!

How do I find all of the Sunken Treasure?
Using the treasure map is a great help, but it isn't essential. Items are scattered in locations that may be difficult to reach when you have a low level shark, you will need to gear up to find them all faster.
Discovering and gathering all 15 sunken items is one of the first and best missions. It's great fun if you're an achievement hunter and it can be very useful when you want to accumulate points and beat high scores.
They all come with big gold rewards and if gathered during gold rush can give a huge points bonus!

What does the Laser accessory do?
The Laser automatically shoots prey from a distance; once stunned, prey can be easily gobbled up. You also earn double points for eating stunned prey.
You can combine it with the Jetpack accessory for deadly air-to-air and air-to-ground attacks!

What does the Jetpack accessory do? How do I get it?
The Jetpack accessory upgrades your sharks boost for longer thrusts. The power of thrust is linked to the shark's boost rate.
It also gives you a 30% speed increase underwater when boosting.
Complete 50 missions and it's yours for free!
Air-to-air and air-to-ground attacks are rewarded with double points.

What does the Shark Vortex accessory do?
The Shark Vortex accessory does exactly what it says on the tin: it vacuums the prey that the shark wearing it can normally eat. The bigger the shark, the bigger the vacuum radius.
Once the collar lights flicker, it's ready to be activated.
Press the screen with another finger (as you would to boost) to activate the vacuum.
The accessory increases your earn rate overall, but gold rush rules apply. The Shark Vortex fits in the neck accessory slot.

What do the different maps do?
If you have ever had any confusion about what those Maps are for in the Hungry Shark Evolution store, let us explain. . .
The Basic Map: A complete overview of where you can swim (or fly!) in the world of Hungry Shark Evolution. Whilst in a session, touch the Map Icon at the bottom left of the screen to see for yourself!
The Mission Map (an add-on to the Basic Map): Shows all the locations where the UNCOLLECTED Mission Shells for the shark you are currently playing as.
The Treasure Map (an add-on to the Basic Map): Reveals the locations of all the Sunken Items (Teddy Bear, Bog Brush, Robot Gibbon, etc). Also useful for showing the locations of where the special goodies are when we run seasonal hunts!
Remember that both the Mission Map and Treasure Map are used the same way as the Basic Map - press the Map Icon in the bottom left of the screen to open them.
Maps are automatically equipped - each further Map purchases acts as an add-on to the Basic Map. Pressing the Map button will pause the game.

What is Gold Rush?
Scoring points fills up the Gold Rush bar, so make the most of those multiplier bonuses awarded for eating streaks!
The system makes you invincible during Gold Rush and you even get points for hitting mines!
Each shark has different Gold Rush duration and takes a different amount of points to fill the bar up 100%.
Each time you trigger a Gold Rush, the bar fills up 7%, making it quicker to get the next one (up to a maximum of 50%).
The system gives you max health when Gold Rush is triggered!

How does the portal work?
The Portal will teleport your shark to a wrecked boat caught in the ice. Here you will have a 3 minute timer which will deplete over time, but can be replenished by eating survivors and many other land and sea animals. Eating penguins will give you +3 seconds back on your clock. However, you can never go higher than your beginning time of 3 minutes. You can break into special icebergs and boat debris to open your way to new parts of the wreck and discover tons of awesome Easter Eggs! If you die or run out of time, you will be returned to the regular level with full health and boost, but you will not be able to return to the wreck for 12 hours, unless you buy an entry ticket in the shop for 10 gems. Entry tickets ignore the waiting time left and give you the possibility to enter the level again within the 12 hours following your previous run. You can carry up to 10 entry tickets at a time.

Do you run events? How would I know?

You'll be able to keep up to date with these via our various community channels, which you can follow by pressing the appropriate Facebook or Twitter icon in the shop, and we also show offers via Shark News when you boot up the game.

Are there boss enemies?
You can fight the 4 different levels of Giant Enemy Crab by entering the Crab Lair! Please remember, this isn't available on low-end devices. The ocean is a dangerous place: you will encounter Enemy Megalodon, Enemy Big Daddy, submarines, very rare giant versions of Kempybass, cage divers, and fishing boats that will be very tough to fight. There are also special boss enemies added to the game with seasonal events, such as Bad Santa. Follow us on the community pages for news on them.

Can I play against my friends?
No, but if you want us to add that as a suggestion to the user request back log, please add it to the community here: HTTP://BIT.LY/HSEC-UBI

To beat the submarine, you just need to boost into the front window! But watch out for its torpedo attacks! To boost, press and hold on the screen whilst traveling in any direction.

Do I need to grow sharks to level 10?
You'll need to level up your shark to level 10, then max that level out for you to be able to buy the next shark for a Coin price. Otherwise, you can move onto the next shark by purchasing it with Gems.

How do I eat paragliders?
To eat paragliders, you'll need a shark that can reach it! A shark that can jump high by boosting out of the water or a shark with the Jetpack accessory equipped should do the trick.
And you'll be rewarded with a Gem!

How do I defeat fishing boats?
As a small shark, you can boost out of the water and eat the fishermen atop. A Great White shark can boost into the bottom of the boar and knock the fishermen into the water where you can gobble them up. But a Megalodon, Big Daddy, or Mr. Snappy will eat the entire boat whole! It's a feast for the eyes!

How do I defeat cage divers?
To crack open the cages and get to the divers inside, you will have to repeatedly boost into it!
With a larger shark, it may only take one powerful boost to release the tasty divers inside.

How do I unlock Alan, Destroyer of Worlds?
That's a good question! To unlock Alan, Destroyer of Worlds, you will need to take Mr. Snappy out for a game session. This will make his fossil appear and you can buy him for Gems. If you max out Mr. Snappy's level, you can buy it for coins!
