A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The controls are pretty basic and easy to grasp.

Violence

The entire point of the game is devouring other creatures, including people swimming on the surface. And when your shark takes a bite, the water is filled with blood.

Sex
Language
Consumerism

A link lets players visit developer Future Games of London's website, but it's buried deep and there are no direct links to the iTunes app store. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Hungry Shark 2 is a bloody arcade game. While it's fun to roleplay as a shark, the blood and attacks on humans (and penguins) are too intense for young players. Players can connect to leaderboards that ask them to create a username and submit an email address, plus state and country info -- though players can skip those steps.

Oh. My. Wow.

This game is so violent! There is no educational value or positive messages. Every time the shark eats a fish, the water is filled with blood that leaves a trai... Continue reading

Is it any good?

For a low-priced app, there's not a lot to complain about with HUNGRY SHARK 2, but it's not a game that's going to wind up on your most-played list. It's a fun diversion for older kids, but the gameplay gets repetitive quickly -- boiling down to keep eating or you die. The graphics are nice and the sound effects that accompany each kill are fine, but even those get old after time. It might be a fair price for two games (the first Hungry Shark comes bundled with purchase), but ultimately Hungry Shark 2 is a one-trick pony.
