You are swimming alone out at sea as the sun sets. Between rumbles from your stomach you hear a bell ringing to the East.

[...] as in the films, Jaws is an especially hungry sort, the aim of this terrifically nostalgic adventure being to fill its vast stomach with bits of meat.

Jaws isnít an astoundingly deep or lengthy or adventure, but itís an amusing one. In short, you come to an island, interact with various scenarios from the movie (and others even Steven Spielberg never dared to imagine), and get all introspective as the monstrous sharkís internal monologue overwhelms your senses with unquenched longing for companionship. And blood.

Jaws: The Text Adventure is a short game that corresponds roughly to the events of the movie, from the point-of-view of the shark, of course. Most of the game's humor relies on having seen the movie (which is totally awesome and if you haven't seen it before why not?); there's even a last lousy point that's easier to get, both literally and metaphorically, if you're familiar with the scene being parodied. I certainly wouldn't recommend this game if you haven't seen Jaws, the movie, but the game is so short you might as well give it a shot anyway if you're really curious. Gameplay is very simple, with one main verb (EAT), no mapping required, and mostly easy puzzles. It's not hard to get the ending that occurs in the movie, and while I stopped there, I can't imagine getting even the best ending takes much longer. If you're a Jaws fan you'll probably enjoy the fifteen minutes it takes to play; if you're not I'd steer clear.
