This is a fun little game that mimics the Spectrum but was actually written on the PC. It was later ported to the Spectrum by a fan with the support of the original author. The date of 1984 is to make it seem authentic and the authors are fictional.
The game is loosely based on the first Jaws movie and it's amusing to play a shark for a change and try to commit as much carnage as possible.
This is a very simple and small little adventure, but it's interesting playing a shark for a change and not have to worry about carrying stuff.
Got half an hour free? Give it a go.




Parser/Vocabulary (Rating: 4/10)

Very simple, most directions and "Eat" something.

Atmosphere (Rating: 6/10)

I quite like the atmosphere, Jaws' emotions are sometimes stated and you do get into the murderous mayhem.

Cruelty (Rating: Merciful)

No real dead ends or traps.

Puzzles (Rating: 5/10)

Very simple.

Overall (Rating: 5/10)

This isn't really intended to be a full on challenging adventure, but it's a nice little diversion and an interesting idea.
