Released in September 1975.
Shark JAWS is the first game featuring animated characters, it's a conversion using the "Tank
" hardware. The manufacturer is 'Horror Games', created by Atari to avoid any possible legal hassles from the producers of the obvious inspiration for the game : Universal Studios' smash-hit movie 'Jaws'.
The PCB to this game is very simple, no processor, no RAM, only off the shelf electronic components, and three rom chips that hold the images of the fish, shark, and man respectively. The game has a single dip switch, which selects one play per credit, or 2 plays per credit (default is two). The only other option is a knob that controls the length of the game. Most really old games played on time limits, not lives, and this was no exception.
