In order to unlock new sharks you have to play the same levels over and over again, a process which gets longer and more tedious as you have to spend exponentially increasing amounts of money for bigger sharks.
While it's not infinite it is a very very long treadmill.
Players who have gem-bought gadgets, powerups, and bigger sharks will always win timed leaderboard challenges over players who don't.
There's constantly a "sale" running on a top-tier shark or bundle of sharks.
You can't save midgame; if you close the app it'll reset your run.
Premium currency, gems, allows you to skip long sections of the game you would otherwise spend grinding.
Purchased sharks, especially lower-level ones, become essentially worthless by the time you progress there manually.
