Sharks? Check. Laserbeams? Check.
Pocket God’s Undersea Area Gets an ‘Upgrade’
The island inhabitants of Pocket God
just can’t catch a break. Previously, in Episode 23 of the smash-hit iPhone
deity simulator, the little guys had to deal with the razor-sharp teeth of
bloodthirsty piranhas – and two episodes later, they face a new set of
predators. And this time, they are much better armed.
Now, in Episode 25: “Sharks With
Frickin’ Laserbeams Attached to Their Heads,” the Pygmies of Pocket God will
have to contend with Sharks. Sharks with frickin’ laserbeams attached to their
The technologically enhanced
creatures are just part of a massive upgrade to the game’s undersea area, also
home to the “Bait Master” piranha minigame. No longer must deities go through
the tiresome effort of summoning a tsunami – now, the underwater zone can be
visited directly from the location menu.
Once underneath the waves, Pocket
God players can replace the Bait Master Anchor with the new Chum Bucket,
scattering delicious shark bait around the sea, or handing some to a doomed
Pygmy. Once drawn out from hiding – probably in some sort of evil volcano lair –
the laser-laden sharks will enthusiastically consume their prey. As an added
bonus, players can aim the sharks’ lasers using the iPhone’s accelerometer,
zapping away at as many Pygmies as they can.
