Swimsanity is a multiplayer underwater shooting game. It's fast paced cartoon action with lots of modes to play with other people. You have a variety of unique power ups and weapons to survive in this aquatic world. But the real novelty is how inventive the different multiplayer modes are.

There's always more to do by completing over 150 challenges across 8 Game Modes. You choose from a range of abilities and special attacks for your character. Then choose one the sort of game you want to play with your friends.

Adventure mode is a single player journey to protect all the Orbs and save the underwater world. Survival mode is endless waves of enemies with up to four players. Versus modes offer free-for-all and team matches including Deathmatch, Last Mooba Standing, and Orb Rush. For families, the Orb Rush mode with three friends is a lot of fun.
