Introduction
Shark Dash is a 2D physics-based puzzle game in which you are tasked with destroying ducks in a bathtub with different types of sharks. The sharks are launched in a technique not unlike Angry Birds, but you can re-launch them even after making impact. There are 108 total levels across four worlds. The challenge is to get all three stars on each level. One star is earned for killing all the ducks (which completes the level), one for collecting all of the coins scattered across the level, and one for completing the level in a certain number of shots. Luckily no achievements are directly related to these stars. For a more in-depth review of the game from WPCentral, click HERE. Currently the game is listed at $0.99 in the Windows Phone Store.

Step 1: Play through the levels
Play through the levels up until Hotel Level 21. You need 100 stars to unlock the Hotel world. Otherwise, you can ignore them completely. This is the last level that is needed for the miscellaneous achievements. See the guide if you wish to earn the miscellaneous achievements along the way. Many of them will come with little to no effort and without trying.

Step 2: Mop-up miscellaneous achievements
Complete whatever miscellaneous achievements you may have left. There may be a lot, but they can all be completed in a very short amount of time on specific levels. See the guide for the best levels and strategies.

Conclusion
Shark Dash is a simple, fun, and cheap game that is quick to complete. Luckily none of the achievements are directly related to earning stars. This makes the game a breeze. All of the achievements can be earned with little trouble in less than 2 hours.


GUIDE

MISCELLANEOUS ACHIEVEMENTS (20 for 200)

The following 20 achievements are obtained by completing miscellaneous tasks and can be completed on any level where they are possible. The achievements are listed in the order of the levels they are easiest to be completed on.

Hungry - 5
Eat 3 or more ducks in a single shot.

First obtainable on Home Level 1. Just fire the Shark straight upward with full power, eating all three of the ducks on the level.

Duck Meet Mouth - 5
A duck jumps directly into the shark's mouth.

First obtainable on Home Level 3. Aim the Shark towards the orange pillar on the left at full power. Concentrate on hitting the second dot from the bottom of the pillar. This will cause the pillar to tip and the duck to fall into the Shark's mouth.

Rubber Ring - 5
Jump through a Rubber Ring.

First obtainable on Home Level 4. From the start, just fire the Shark upwards through the green striped ring.

Inflatable Explosion - 5
Make an inflatable block explode.

First obtainable on Home Level 5. Just fire the Shark ahead through the ring and into the inflatable block (clear one) to pop it.

Shark Got Bounce - 15
Bounce 7 times or more during a single shot.

First obtainable on Home Level 8. Use your first shot to break the inflatable block. Wait for the orange block to fall down flat. Then launch your Shark into the tube system so it bounces back and forth repeatedly before falling out. It may take a few tries to get to 7 before falling out.

Underwater Pop - 5
Release a duck from it's bubble underwater.

First obtainable on Home Level 11. If you do nothing at the start of the level, it will unlock when a soap block falls immediately and releases the three underwater ducks.

Deep Blue! - 10
Eat 6 ducks underwater in a single shot.

This is one of the trickiest achievements in the game. The best (and maybe only) level to attempt this on is Home Level 11. You need to fire the shark at full power towards the closest group of three underwater ducks, aiming for the middle one. Your Shark will eat all three of those ducks. You also need to time it so the green soap block that automatically falls at the beginning of the level hits your Shark while underwater to push it to eat the other three ducks. This will take many attempts just to get the timing right. See the video below:


Alternative Method: Credit to XTowers - "I got it on the same level (1-11), but instead I aimed for the bottom duck of the SECOND row, and I waited until the falling soap block popped all the ducks from the first row. Then, as the first row ducks were on their way, floating to the top, I released my shark, gobbling those ducks and then the second row of ducks, too. Took less than five attempts for me doing this. It is all about timing for grabbing those three rising ducks; the other three in the second column are easy to grab if you keep your aim steady."

MVP Shark - 10
Launch a ball through a Rubber Ring.

First obtainable on Home Level 17. From the start, launch the Shark STRAIGHT up at full power. This will knock both balls off the edge into the Rubber Rings, unlocking this achievement.

Fireworks! - 10
Make 7 or more mines explode consecutively.

First obtainable on Home Level 19. From the start, launch the Shark to the right destroying the inflatable block. This will cause the mine to roll down and destroy the other 5 mines, unlocking the achievement. Even though only 6 total mines are destroyed, the achievement unlocks.

Bursting Bubbles - 10
Pop 9 or more bubbles in a single shot.

First obtainable on Home Level 20. From the start, launch the Shark through the inflatable block to the right, collecting the 3 ducks and right into the 6 mines that are all encased in bubbles. You will die, but you will also unlock the achievement.

Total Awards: 9 (more» ...)
Block Overboard! - 10
Launch a block outside the bathtub.

You just need to knock a block out of the bathtub. This is easily obtainable on Japan Level 2. From the start, launch the Shark directly at one of the green soap blocks resting on the outer ledges of the bathtub, knocking it over the edge.

I Am Iron Head - 10
Receive 3 or more impacts in the same shot.

An impact is when one Shark hits another one. There is a specific sound for when this occurs. This is obtainable on Japan Level 5. For the first shot, fire the Shark on the right under the mines so it is next to the left Shark. From this point, just keep gently launching whatever Shark is to the right on top of the other Shark's head on the left while it is next to the wall or ball. You need to get the Shark to sort-of balance on top of the other one's head so it can keep bouncing. It is easy to get 2 impacts with this method, but within a few tries you can get 3 or 4.

Drying in the Sun - 15
Be outside the water for more than 7 sec.

You need to get the Shark to stay out of the water for 7 seconds. It also has to be in motion as if it stops the level will be failed. This achievement can easily be obtained on Japan Level 6. Your first objective from the start of the level is to use any number of shots to cut the chain holding the green block. Then, launch the Shark at full power into any of the tube openings. Your Shark will get trapped spinning in a figure-eight pattern for a good 10 seconds or more, easily unlocking this achievement.

Liberation - 5
Free a Shark and return him to the water.

First obtainable in Japan Level 7. Fire the blue Shark to the left along the surface of the water into the floating orange block. The red Shark will become free and float to the surface, unlocking this achievement.

A Little Nudge - 10
Make a shark jump by hitting him from below.

This achievement is most easily obtainable on Japan Level 10. Just launch the Shark into the left entrance to the tube (send the Shark underwater and have it float back up into the tube). The Shark will fly out of the tube and smash into the other Shark and some mines. You will die, but the achievement will unlock.

Cutter Shark - 10
Cut 3 or more bath chains in a single shot.

First obtainable on Japan Level 16. From the start, launch the Shark up through the chain on the right, arcing it so it lands in the top of the tube on the right. The Shark will fly around through the level, cutting the other two chains and unlocking this achievement. It works best if you land the Shark directly on the sponge before having it slowly roll into the top of the tube.

Also easily obtainable on Japan Level 18. Use your first shot to position the Shark between the brown block and orange pillar right in front of you at the start. Then, fire the Shark up and to the right, cutting both chains holding the purple salt block and the next one holding the Rubber Ring. This may take a few tries to get the angle right.

Sprayfish Party - 15
Activate 3 sprayfish with one shot.

First obtainable on Hotel Level 6. From the start, launch the Shark at full power into the left side of the closest sprayfish. There will be a chain-reaction and all three will be activated (spray a stream of water upwards), unlocking this achievement.

Dizzy Block - 10
Make a block rotate more than 1,000 degrees.

1,000 degrees is just shy of three complete spins. This achievement is easily obtainable on Hotel Level 15. Launch the orange Shark down and to the left towards the corner at full power. Use the Shark's power-up (by tapping or clicking the screen) to move upward and hit the circular floating block. The circular block will fly up, destroy the mine, then roll out of the tub. At some point while it is spinning and falling off screen, this achievement should unlock. This may take a couple tries to get the round block rolling correctly.

Party Popper - 15
Destroy 3 or more inflatables in a single shot.

This achievement is most easily obtainable on Hotel Level 17. First, arch the Shark from the start over the stack of two inflatable blocks landing before the cluster of mines. Then dive down to hit the sprayfish, which will launch the ball into the mines. Then launch your Shark at full power into the upper entrance of the piping. This will launch your Shark through all three inflatables on the level, unlocking the achievement.

Alternative method: Hotel Level 8: Right at the start, fire the shark at full speed to the right, towards the middle of the closest orange pillar. If done right, the tall, thin inflatables can pop when hitting the water of if the mine explodes. This shot is more difficult to pull off that the first method. Thanks to habs14 for the method.

You can also attempt this achievement earlier in the game on Japan Level 14, however, that level is much more tricky. Thanks to slafferty for the tip.

Come to Poppa - 15
Have 3 ducks jump directly into the shark's mouth.

This is most easily obtainable on Hotel Level 21. First launch the orange Shark to the left so it is out of the way. Then use it to destroy the inflatable block at the bottom to free the blue Shark. Then shoot the orange Shark up to destroy the inflatable block in the middle. A ball will fall, knocking all four ducks in the tunnel down into the blue Shark's mouth. Thanks to Jappe x360a for the method.

Thats right I did that on the Millionaire game. I do prefer to buy it on Norwegian marketplace though. Less hassle. Edit: Completed! The last one in the guide 3 duck meal I got on a early level, not sure which but it had a downwards block. Level before the shark bounce achievement :-)

Deep blue was a little tricky/glitchy for me. What I had to do was aim for the bottom of the second row of ducks and wait for the falling soap block to pop the first row of ducks. As they were rising to the top, I released my shark and grabbed all 6.

Freakin' achievement bugged on my twice the other way.
