Hungry Shark is a series of arcade-style mobile games developed/published by Future Games of London (prior to Hungry Shark Evolution) and published by Ubisoft (since Hungry Shark Evolution). The games allow players to control several unique species of sharks, including mako sharks, great white sharks, hammerhead sharks, reef sharks, and megalodon; to progress, the player must consume other marine animals and grow in size until the next, more powerful shark is available for purchase. In May 2016, Hungry Shark World was downloaded 10 million times in six days, reaching the top 10 free iPhone and Android apps.

Hungry Dragon (2017)
A sort of spinoff of Hungry Shark, where the player controls a dragon.
Hungry Shark revolves around the player, a lone shark, consuming various marine species to grow in size until the subsequent, more powerful sharks are unlocked. The number of species the player is able to consume depends on the strength of the shark; for instance, a reef shark cannot eat lionfish, but a great white shark is able to. Not all creatures can be consumed, and some are hostile towards the shark.
As the player progresses, the hazards posed to them increase; helicopters may begin dropping explosive barrels into the sea, or fisherman may seek out the player in an attempt to end their frenzy. In addition to these foes, the shark's health constantly deteriorates and can only be restored when food is consumed; if the player goes without food for too long, the shark will die. Each shark possesses a unique ability (such as freezing breath or a boost) that can be upgraded.
Like many other mobile games, the Hungry Shark series offers each game for free but charges real world money for additional gold (which can be acquired by playing the game) and gems (which must be purchased). This freemium model has been met with criticism from some journalists.
