'''''Jaws''''' is a [[UsefulNotes/NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]] game from the year 1987, based on the ''Film/{{Jaws}}'' franchise, mostly on [[Film/JawsTheRevenge the fourth film]]. It was released by Creator/LJNToys and developed by [[Creator/WestoneBitEntertainment Westone]], better known for their work on the ''Franchise/WonderBoy'' series.

Your main goal is to kill the giant shark. To accomplish this, you sail between two ports with your boat. Most of the gameplay feature you being drafted into underwater segments where you harpoon your way out of attacking jellyfish, stingrays and sharks and collect stuff from them. Occasionally, you are attacked by the giant shark itself. You gradually become stronger as you travel in the sea, and when reach your limit you are able to finish the giant shark for good.

* OneWordTitle: Just like the movie. It also becomes an AntagonistTitle since the shark is referred to as Jaws in-game.
