Feeding Frenzy Deluxe 5.7.18.1
Feeding Frenzy 2014

Get through each level by eating fish and getting to the top of the food chain.

There are a few comical characters in this arcade-style game, but it's fairly simple to play without a lot of details to worry about. You're put in an ocean with several predators and other small fish around you when the game begins. You have to act fast in order to get away from the predators and to eat the smaller fish so that you can grow. There are five characters to choose from in the game. A fun feature is that you can change characters as you navigate through each level depending on the strengths that you need. The game has over 40 levels. There is a downside to the low number of levels, which is that you complete the game rather quickly. However, it also means that you can spend more time perfecting your game and getting the highest score.

Try not to eat something that will make you sick or that won't give you enough energy to swim because there are larger fish in the ocean to eat. You also need to be able to swim fast enough to get away from the fish that are trying to eat you. The Shark King is in the final level of the game, and you're going to need as much strength as you can get to overcome him. The game doesn't feature a lot of violence. The only thing that you have to look out for is the fish eating each other. The graphics make the game look like a cartoon instead of a game that you would play on the computer. Although the sound effects could be improved, they are fun to listen to, such as the gurgling in the water and the bubbles.

Pros

  • Fun and simple game
  • Colorful characters and details
  • Fast-paced

Cons

  • Not many levels

Feeding Frenzy is an aquatic-based arcade game first released in 2004 that eventually became popular enough to see re-releases on the XBox Live Arcade for both the original XBox and XBox 360 systems. It ranked among the top 20 most popular XBox Live Arcade games in 2006, charming players with simple a premise and gameplay and cartoon-style graphics.

The game starts by putting players in control of a hungry sea predator. There are five playable characters in total, and players switch off between them while eating their way through a full course of the game's 40 levels. There are always bigger fish in the sea, though, and it's important to avoid chomping on something harmful or getting eaten by an even bigger fish. The last level has players taking on the most dangerous predator of all, though -- the menacing Shark King.

There's actually very little violence in the game and no gore. Combined with the fact that Feeding Frenzy isn't particularly difficult and has bright and colorful cartoon graphics, it holds tons of appeal for children and fans of casual games. Experienced gamers in particular may find gameplay too easy, but that doesn't make it any less interesting to watch the playable characters continually grow. All five characters become larger the more they eat.

Pros:

  • The cartoon graphics are bright and fun, lively and pleasant to look at.
  • This is a good game for children and casual gamers in particular, many of whom will be drawn in by the simple gameplay and premise.
  • The game's sound effects are also very good.
  • Feeding Frenzy is a little reminiscent of popular animated movies like Shark Tale and Finding Nemo. People who enjoyed those movies will most likely enjoy playing Feeding Frenzy as well.

Cons:

  • The lack of challenge may fail to appeal to all demographics of gamers, particularly gamers who enjoy difficult games.
