A playthrough of LJN’s 1987 NES game, Jaws.
Despite having virtually nothing to do with the movie on which it is based, Jaws is a respectable action game, combining shooter mechanics with light RPG trappings. Once you understand how the game works, it can be finished in no time flat, but it’s an entertaining diversion from heavier fare. It’s part Galaga and part Gradius, with a QTE event for the finale!
Jaws is SIGNIFICANTLY better than Friday the 13th, which LJN subjected the public to two years after unleashing this masterpiece. Well, fun and playable game. Probably because it was developed by Westone – the guys that handled early versions of Adventure Island/Wonder Boy. That makes much more sense.
