''Shark Jaws'' is a 1975 Creator/{{Atari}} UsefulNotes/ArcadeGame, created to cash in on the success of the movie ''Film/{{Jaws}}''. Atari couldn't get a license from Creator/{{Universal}}, so they created a subsidiary, Horror Games, to protect them 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 [[ScoringPoints score a point]]. If you touch the shark, you die, but you have [[DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist infinite lives]]. The game ends when [[TimedMission time runs out]].

!!''Shark Jaws'' provides examples of:
* CollisionDamage: The shark.
* DeathIsASlapOnTheWrist: You respawn after a couple of seconds.

* TheSeventies: Made to cash in on the movie ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', right down to designing the arcade cabinet so that the word "Shark" in the title was really small, so that people would think it was connected to ''Jaws'' at a first glance.
