Alive Sharks is an underwater action arcade game. You play the Frogman (a guy in a scuba suit) who is attempting to collect rare marine creatures from the bottom of the sea while being attacked by sharks. If the sharks bite the Frogman 50 times, he dies. The Frogman can shoot the sharks with a stun-gun, which temporarily tranquilizes them, but he can only have one shot on the screen at a time. He scores 1 point for shooting each shark and 10 points for bringing a sea creature back to the cage. You start a new level every 100 points, which increases the difficulty level by increasing the number of sharks, increasing their aggressiveness, and reducing the length of time the stun-gun will tranquilize them. The Frogman cannot be attacked while in the cage. The game can be played with different underwater foes, which serves as the difficulty level. Ray-bats is a training level for children in which the ray-bats pose no threat to the Frogman. Sharks is the standard game, and Killer Jelly Fish can kill the Frogman with a single bite, but the game is slowed down to give you more time to plan your strategy. There are 3 difficulty levels in this game, with only the second level playable in the shareware version.
