Alive Sharks is a game of gathering moving valuables underwater while avoiding dangerous sea creatures. The "frogman," or scuba diver, must swim through the underwater to collect rare sea creatures, each worth 10 points. His stun gun can temporarily pacify either the sharks or jellyfish, which move about menacingly under water. Frogman is safe inside the steel cage, but he cannot attain any points this way. A level is complete upon reaching 100 points and Frogman dies after 50 shark bites or 1 jellyfish sting. The stingray level is a tutorial in which Frogman cannot be harmed.
