This game was introduced to coincide with the movie Jaws.

From designer: "Dick Simon and I, (John Wilbur), would sit down and completely define the video game on paper, before I would design the hardware and write the software program to bring it alive. I remember Dick would have his secretary then type up the complete description in the form of an order for me to producing them. Those were fun times that I look back on fondly. I still enjoy keeping in touch with Dick Simon."

John Wilbur designed, produced and sold some of the very first microprossor based game boards to US Billiards.

Also released as "Shark [Cocktail Table model]".
