Sharks with Frickin' Laserbeams has been approved!

There will be the usual lag between the approval letter and the app being updated on iTunes...but should be out tonight!

So, by now everyone knows that the object if this new update is to bring out the shark in the underwater area and start blasting pygmies with the shark laser. Trigger the tsunami, and in the underwater area you'll notice a chum bucket. Drag chum out to attract the shark. You can now use the accelerometer (tilt controls) to aim at the pygmies and start blasting! Keep blasting pygmies to keep the shark out, or feeding the shark chum will keep it from swimming off. You can even hand the chum to a pygmy and the shark will have an extra big meal!


Of course, Dave has fixed the 2.2 crash bug, so anyone who was forced to keep Bait Master can now participate in Episode 24's Buddy Challenges. See the article below for details!

We are still in the middle of the next update, which will entail a whole new area. Looks like we have to get it done and quick!

  5. Awesome update bolt so far 19 shark zaps, the fishing is a little glitchy on mine though every other fish is swimming backward and is at the very bottom of the screen usually they are about a half inch up from the bottom, not sure what causing it i have pictures if you would like to see.

  7. You should make an underwater cave area that is like a cave air pocket under water. Semi dark, and have ability to make it snow in there. That would be so cool

  19. 1.What happend to Slipknot88(22) happend happend aswell to me. Ok, i can open Feint and the first time i could open the challenges, but only tried 2 times (1st opened, 2nd didn't work), so i don't know if it's just this one time.

    2.The Achievments for piraniahs and blaster don't work at my ipod touch (iPod touch 1st generation, 3.0 Software). Only the 1 Blast from the Blast achievment and maybe one from the piraniahs was added to my list

    3.An idea...or at least an beginning of it:
    You both always said the harpune is defending something, but what? Maye a secret cave like nick said (cool idea!)

    The last point:Can you make updates for the old updates. You don't really have to put new things in the game but you can improve the old things, like a earthquake underwater. Than the bottom will split for a short time and the pygmies will be pulled in. Or that the vamp aswell can bite the dodo and than an vampire dodo will attack the pygmies. think about that please

  20. Okay. This made me rather angry. THIS IS A BLATANT RIP OFF OF A ANIMAL ON THE GAME "EPIC PET WARS"! Seriously.. Even the tagline of the EPW Lazershark is "A shark with a freaking laser." You guys stole it and I hope Miraphonic does something about it.

  21. i'm at 326 shark blasts and counting

  22. Glitch: if you shoot a pygmy while they are in the whirlpool, they become immune to the laser!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I MADE 1000 and didn't get any achievements except for shark blast minion.

    ReplyDelete
  24. ManiacalZManiac...Actually, Epic Pet Wars should sue Austin Powers first since that movie ripped off their animal before we did! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bh7bYNAHXxw

    All kidding aside, we don't know Epic Pet Wars too well, and that they paid "homage" to the same Austin Powers Joke that we did, so we didn't intend to steal anyone's thunder.

  25. THIS UPDATE IS THE BEST YET! Seriously, make more like this one.

  26. The game still freezes and then crashes when you try to go to the "Buddy Challenge" for me.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Same for me, it crashes when I go in the Challenge menu and OpenFeint doesn't open... And I did 400 and didn't have any achievements T.T (I shut down my phone before...)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Glitch:
    1:make an invincible pygmie (make 2 pygmies, one fishing, tap the stature and when it says "Like" make a tsnami)
    2:Have 1 invincible pygmie pick up firewood,but not drop it in the fire pit.
    3: before they drop it make a tsnami
    4:go back to the island from underwater and the peice of wood that the pygmie had will now be gone forever. you must start the game again to get it back.

  29. Please check out this idea for a new location, i would love if this was added in a couple of updates! i hope you like it.

    my idea: It is a shipwreck themed "island" that have crashed on a reef. if you dobbelclick the reef, the reef and the ship will start shaking (you can also just start an eartquake), and wil open a door, and 2 swords will fall out, and huge octopus tentacles will appear, and try to drag the pygmys out in the water. but if a pygmy that is wearing a sword (you must drop it in his hand, just like the spear) it will cut of one of the 5 tentacles, and if all the tentacles is gone, the octopus will escape.

    and, if you have this on, if 2 pygmys that is wearing a sword and it is no tentacles on the screen, they will start to duel each other, and one of them will die... if a pygmy becomes vampire, and another pygmy is wearing a sword, the pygmy will throw the vampire in the water.

    if you click the pirate flag, a chamber door will open, and a skeleton will go out and scare the crap out of the pygmys and if the sceleton get to close them, and the pygmys are close to the edge of the ship, they will jump out in the water in fear.

    there will also be a cannon there, and if you put a pygmy in there, the pygmy will be shot out and start a minigame where the goal is to avoid birds and jumping sharks and try to get as far as you can it will be faster if you get far.

    What do you think about that idea?

  30. For some reason feint isn't recording my scores on several of the minigames. On Ooga Jump my high score is 3300 something and it has my score as 2400 something. On the shark blast my high score is 2014 and it has my score as 55. Is it tha feint is just slow on updating?

    ReplyDelete
  31. openfeint is not working here too!

    ReplyDelete
  32. The update is Grroooovy baby, Yeah!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I found a glitch where I was going to drop a burnt fish of a pygmy's head so they'd choke, but the fish just floated in midair! I moved it again and it fell normally.

    ReplyDelete
  34. You guys with front issues are lucky, I can't get the new update to work at all! I'm on 3.0 with a 3Gs jailbroken. Bolt, email me at mackmgg at gmail dot com, I tried restarting, reinstalling, an even deleting and reinstalling (no stats is better then no game)

    ReplyDelete
  35. have you seen the new feint whats coming i think the real time multiplayer could be something cool in ooga jump

    ReplyDelete
  36. Feint issue ^^ autocorrect "fixed" it. Also, when I say not working, it shows the loading screen, takes a decent amount of time, then crashes back to the home screen every time.

    ReplyDelete
  37. i think its time for a clean up update. where it just makes it be able to load faster from the begining, like first when you open the game it takes a while. i know its no biggy but since im in accelerated math i get 3 times the homework + all the other homework and i have to finish harry potter and the deathly hallows by sept 28 and im only on page 120! ahh!!! so i barley have time to breathe so faster lodaing would be nice :) :D :P :|

  38. OhMyPocketGod,
    first off... awsome name :P, second... the same thing happend to me :( i made it to 1000 but i only have minion
    Bolt Creative,
    whats wrong with it? here is what i did, i made it to 199. then decided that was good for now. 5 min later i challaged my friend on shark zaps and during the challenge i got 1000. in the menu it says i made it to 1000 but in feint it says the highest i got was 199. whats up?

    ReplyDelete
  39. Martin, your idea about a shipwrecked pirate ship is pretty interesting. However, it sounds like too much to put into the average update.(maybe two or three instead) Also, the skeleton doesn't seem necessary to me. I think the idea is okay with just the cannon and the swords.
    (but obviously no gore with the swords) Keep on thinking out of the box. :)

  43. I KNOW WHAT THE NEXT UPDATE NAME IS! I will give hints on comments. First hint. I think it might pay homage to a Michael Jackson song.
