Tips and Tricks
Keep an eye out for the distance meter that ticks downwards it shows you how close the shark is to catching you up, gobbling you up, and then spitting you out into the menu screen.
If you want to get a little more distance between you and the ever-chasing shark in Small Fry, get airborne! To give yourself the best chance of catching a bubble, go for a deep dive into the ocean, then let go to get some serious height, and expose your fish to many more bubbles.
Landing on the bubbles precisely is a tricky art, so here's a few tips. First of all, don't descend until the last minute - Small Fry is not nearly as forgiving as other games like Tiny Wings, and you'll descend sharply with even light touches. Second of all, try to get multiple bounces off three or more bubbles if you can, so that you enter the game's boosted mode.
To get up into outer space, you need to find a way of propelling yourself high into the sky, above the cloud-line, and so into the bubbles that appear towards the top of the screen. You need to get plenty of consecutive bumps off the lower bubbles to pull this off, but once you touch a space-based bubble, you'll be automatically placed inside it.
Don't worry too much about collecting currency in the oceans until you've treated yourself to a coin magnet upgrade or too. You should collect enough money to do this through natural play, but its too easy to hit enemy fish if you deliberately aim for the cash in your early minutes with the game.
Focus on getting hold of power-ups before you spend money in the outfit store. There are lots of options for sprucing up your little fish, but these are purely cosmetic changes. Better to spend money on making money first.
