Tracy Jordan once said, “Live every week like it’s Shark Week.” Gameloft’s Shark Dash game lives that credo, being a physics puzzler about a shark. Now, it’s about to live Shark Week like it’s Shark Week, with the new free version of Shark Dash. See, with Discovery Channel’s Shark Week starting on August 12th, Gameloft has teamed up with WildAid to do some good for the kinds of sharks that don’t swim in bathtubs. As the video below illustrates, shark finning poses a real threat to many species of shark. So, Gameloft is selling the Fintastic skin, giving Sharkee a globe design, with all net proceeds going to WildAid to help put an end to shark finning. Players can spend $0.99, $4.99, or $24.99 (USD) to unlock the Finastic skin. Currently, the Fintastic skin is only available in Shark Dash Free, so paid users may have to wait for an update or just switch to the free version to get their unlock.
