In 1975, the blockbuster movie Jaws
was released. The series culminated in 1987 with a fourth movie, Jaws: The Revenge
. The NES game Jaws
(online) was released that same year, incorporating elements of both the original and fourth movie. But you probably don't know about the game that Mirrorsoft commissioned in 1984 from the husband-and-wife coding team, Dave & Sara Crud. They made a ZX Spectrum movie tie-in for the original film, only for rights holders to back out and leave it unreleased for nearly three decades ... UNTIL NOW!
Or at least that's the backstory MeFite malevolent
wrote. [via mefi projects
More details from malevolent:
It's built from scratch in HTML5, with graphics and sound as authentic as I could get them. There are multiple ending, hidden features and references for fans of both old adventure games and the movie.
If that's not enough old video game versions of Jaws for you, here's Jaws: The Computer Game
(online) for the Amiga (1989
) and Jaws Unleashed
), which was re-created as an Atari 2600 game for online play
