Game Genie™ Codes For Fire Shark

This game is a very tough challenge. With your trusty time-traveling biplane, you have to stop the marauding enemy from taking over the whole world. There are so many enemies out to get you that you might want to try FIRE Code 6 for infinite lives, and Code 15 for infinite bombs. That ought to even things up a bit. Change the number of credits you start with from the normal 5 using Codes 16 thru 22. The maximum number of lives or bombs shown on the screen will be 5, but if you have more, the counter does count correctly. FIRE Code 23 gives you a weapon upgrade faster. Hotshots should try starting with one credit using Code 16--and then see how hot they really are. Code 24 lets you keep a regular weapon upgrade, but not a special weapon.

Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Fire Shark
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Toaplan/Dreamworks
RELEASED:         1990
TYPE:             Shooter
LANGUAGE:         English and Japanese (set console accordingly)

PREMISE:          A 1943 Kai clone for the MegaDrive.  The only thing
                  missing is a two-player mode.

IMPRESSIONS:      Adequate, but uninspiring.

VARIATIONS:       Every now and again I stumble across a reference to a
                  a port of the old NES shooter Flying Shark for the
                  MegaDrive.  I tend to believe that they are references to
                  this game, although I would welcome conclusive proof to
                  the contrary.

I totally disagree with the scribe here! This game is a blast to play. The music isn't outstanding but it fits the action well enough. The graphics aren't bad at all. Just look at the little touches like the frogmen in the water that are swimming around sometimes. also this game reminds me totally of Capcoms style of shooters. The sounds are also pretty well done. I actually think this game is a tad on the easy side as far as shooters go. But it does get really challenging in the later stages. The best part is the way the power up system works. Instead of keeping your power ups when you perish you are basically either put back a level in your power up...or begin at the start with the basic weapons. Powerups are not very easy to collect to get the most destructive setup. You have to be very good and be able to dogde the onslaught for a good while to get the ultimate in weaponry. I think this game deserves a lot more recognition than the Scribe gives it here.
