- A platform will appear, kill the creeps and grab the TNT. Throw it towards the shark, which will be swimming towards you.
- A second wave of octopuses will come towards you. This time it will be a horizontal line of octopuses. To dodge them, make sure you are at the top of the wave coming towards you, so you have enough height. Then press and hold X to jump over them.
- Again a platform will appear. Kill the single creep on the platform next to the TNT. Grab the TNT and throw it towards the shark. Make sure you don’t waste any time as the shark will be swimming towards you.
- Just like step 3, a wave of horizontal octopuses will spawn. However these will jump into the air. Simply wait for them to jump and return in the water. Make for a quick jump when they return in the water and you will be fine.
- After you do that, there will spawn a second wave, very different then the first few waves you encountered. This one will be above your head, so you will have to look up. Dodge the octopuses by staying around the center and floating with X .
- You will now have to throw gas-bottles into the sharks mouth. A total of 6 are required. When you do that, you will get a gun gadget.
- Before you can kill the shark, you will need to fend of octopuses coming towards your ship. Shoot them down with the gun-gadget. You can take around 4 hits before your ship will drown. After you fend them of, hit the shark and you will kill it.
