Introduction:
Shark Dash is a 2D physics-based puzzle game in which you are tasked with eating/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.

Use your first shot to position the Shark between the brown block and orange pillar right in front of you at the start.

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, even though you did not pop 9 bubbles.

Dizzy Block10
Dizzy Block 

This achievement requires that you make a block rotate more than 1,000 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.

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.

Deep Blue10
Deep Blue 

This is one of the trickiest achievements in the game. It requires you to eat 6 ducks underwater in a single shot. The best (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 image below for the technique. Thanks to Jappe x360a for the image.

 

A Little Nudge10
A Little Nudge 

This achievement requires you to make a shark jump by hitting him from below with another shark. First obtainable on Japan Level 9. Just use one of the red Sharks to come up underneath the other one, causing it to be knocked out of the water a tad.

Come to Poppa15
Come to Poppa 

This achievement requires that you 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. 

Drying in The Sun15
Drying in The Sun 

This achievement requires that you get the Shark to be outside of the water for more than 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.

Party Popper15
Party Popper 

This achievement requires that you destroy 3 or more inflatables in a single shot and 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 1: 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. 

Alternative Method 2: 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.

Sprayfish Party15
Sprayfish Party 

This achievement requires that you 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.

Shark Got Bounce15
Shark Got Bounce 

This achievement requires that you 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.

I am Iron Head15
I am Iron Head 

This achievement requires that you 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.
