diver. You, diver. His weaponry: infinite spears.
It's humanly impossible to carry any more than
four regular-sized sportsman spears while
swim from the bottom of the screen to the top
until they surface. One hit and it's jelly jam.
Jellyfish are very commonly found in warm waters,
usually a great amount in June and July. These
fish contain nematocysts (Nintendo + high school
biology!), or stinging cells, used for paralyzing
prey and predators. If stung by one, you will
feel a slight sting and it may become numb soon
after. Few are deadly to human beings. Trust me,
I've been stung several times down the Jersey
ray swim in direct paths across screen. Two hits
and it's scallops for dinner.
Rays are very common in both Eastern and Western
coasts, though the species differ. I've caught
quite a few fishing off the Jersey shore. They
have been given the nickname of "devil
fish" because of their long tails. These
tails can regenerate within about a few months
from being cut off. Fisherman and aquarists alike
take special precautions when handling. A sting
is incredibly painful. I know of one 30-some year
old man who caught one while surf fishing and
cried so loud that people came from all over the
beach. When stung, the victim must immediately
seek medical help or he or she will become very
ill, and in extreme cases, even die from the
poison. The injection can come from its horned
tail or throughout its spiny horns found at the
center of the fish.
travel alone when you're at your first power
level, but when you begin to advance through the
game, they will travel in schools of up to five
at a time. The toughest minor enemy of the game,
one can take up to 10 hits to destroy.
Both younger and older sharks usually swim
together. To breathe, sharks must constantly swim
at all times or find a highly enriched oxygen area.
In fact, there has been a report last year (2000)
that a group of sharks have been found hanging
out in a hidden cove at an exotic location. This
is a rare sight to see non-moving sharks all in
one area. When scientists did research on this
specific site, they found out that this one cove
had an unique amount of oxygen and thus they were
able to survive staying motionless. In theory,
they were getting their fair share, or in crude
terms, "getting high," until they
needed to find food to survive.
main bad boy, the king of the ocean, the 7th
wonder of the world... the 5-foot robotic shark!
Jaws is the boss and requires a power level of 4
or 5 to beat in one scene (although level 3 is
possible). After you defeat him underwater, you
must then finish him with your ship's mast during
the final showdown.
Gigantic great white sharks are so powerful that
fishermen have to blast off their heads with a
shotgun and must remain away from the dismembered
body because the head will still attack. That's
how truly monstrous these beasts actually are.
