Shark Jaws is a 1975 Atari Arcade Game, created to cash in on the success of the movie Jaws. Atari couldn't get a license from Universal, so he created a subsidiary, Horror Games, to protect Atari from a lawsuit (which never happened).
You control a diver, who chases after a fish, while avoiding a shark. Every time you catch the fish, you score a point. If you touch the shark, you die, but you have infinite lives. The game ends when time runs out.
Shark Jaws provides examples of:
- Death Is a Slap on The Wrist: You respawn after a couple of seconds.
- Scoring Points
- The Seventies: Made to cash in on the movie Jaws.
- Side View
- Timed Mission
