Default Shark Chum - (by Andrew Lloyd)

I just released a new iPhone puzzle game, Shark Chum. I believe that the gameplay is fairly original with some interesting twists on the genre. I would love any feedback from the TouchArcade community. Thanks for taking a look.

Don't know about this games' game play, but I DO like the icon of the seal as the shark chum! Must be because of my hatred of them in general as a big-game saltwater fisherman that I am!

Tough crowd! I guess the seals aren't as sympathetic a character as I was hoping for. Maybe I'll have to work on a sequel that doesn't penalize seal carnage.

I feel guilt for getting the seals killed.
Dang it, they are seals!
Stop toying with my emotions!
But back on track,
Its a fun puzzler. I am enjoying a bit too much, as the delayed an army of two session for about half an hour.
I like it because its fun to try and move the seals around and see if bruce does or does not munch on em.
The star system is a standard I guess, it adds that extra challenge of "you can do better"
Basically it plays like this:
Bruce(Shark) is in a cage at some point.
You have to map a path by placing chum such that the chum leads to the other cage and that the seals are further from the shark than the chum at any given time.
Or just move the seals right in front of bruce's cage. That'll make you lose a level.
Ideas to expand:
Enhanced chum effect with little bits.
Thats pretty much it for now.
Edit: Also two new themes with levels.
Like an aquarium and a sandy beach.
