It's a beautiful day at the beach: Early in the morning, John and Michael pack their bags and head for Sapphire Bay with a bath towel, parasol, an inflatable swimming island and a frisbee. But as soon as the car is parked and the first steps onto the still slightly cool sand are taken, the two of them look into the yellow eyes of a monstrous tooth-guzzling shark, which shortly before has torn apart the other beach goers and colored the water blood red. Panic. Screaming people come running towards them, only to get eaten by the monster. It is a slaughter festival. And you have staged it.
In this single player action role-playing game, you must fight as a baby bull shark to survive. Explore different underwater environments, from swamps and rivers, to seaside resorts and the deep blue sea. The only tools you need are your mind, jaws, and the uncanny ability to evolve as you feed. Eat, explore, and develop the ultimate killing machine! Maneater is a role-playing game about a shark, where humour plays a very important part. If you enjoy word jokes, easter-eggs, and pop-cultural references, you will love to dip your feet into the water.
Once you have reached your first evolutionary stage, you may hunt humans for the first time. To do so, you sink pedal boats and grab the occupants or even throw yourself ashore to grab a few crispy brown tourists. If you cause a lot of panic, hunters will enter the game. This starts quite harmlessly with some amateurs on jets skis, but quickly turns into hunting boats and enemies with guns. If they target you, you will have to evade them to avoid being hit. Once you become a fully-grown shark, you can make short work of these creatures, until they upgrade to dynamite.
