Hungry Shark World Walkthrough

2. Tips, Tricks, and Basic Information

In this section of the walkthrough, you will see some of the general tips, tricks, and information that will be useful for completing the game as efficiently as possible.

Lingo & Terms

  • Gold Rush - Your special ability that makes you invincible and makes all creatures drop gold upon being eaten/defeated.
  • MEGA Gold Rush - When your gold rush bar becomes completely full it will turn purple and you will unleash a MEGA gold rush. This lasts longer, gives higher multiplier, and allows you to eat everything in the level.
  • HUNGRY - The six letters, found randomly around the map, necessary to unlock an enormous size version of your shark. You move at high speed and can eat anything in this HUNGRY form.

Tips & Tricks

  • Usefulness of Arab Princess - One of the biggest tips I can give you is to maximize your experience potential by using the Arab Princess items. These give you additional experience which will allow your sharks to level up faster becoming stronger, quicker, and more resilient making missions easier. Anytime you level a shark to 10 though you should swap the Arab Princess items off for something more useful to complete the missions you have left.
  • Completing Missions Early - Finishing off missions as soon as you can, will help you progress quickly through the sharks. Missions most of the time give valuable experience which is necessary to unlock items, but some sharks give coin missions which will give you a much needed early boost to purchasing pets, protections, and item sets.
  • Fossils and the Best Source for Finding Them - Drenrab's Youtube channel is by far the best resource for finding the locations of ALL of the fossils for each shark. I will be linking to the videos as we move through the walkthrough section. All credit to this amazing resource goes to Drenrab and his hard work!
