Jaws! You are a helicopter pilot sent out to rescue survivors from a troop ship crashed into enemy waters. The game is made out of two screens.

The first screen plays like Asteroids, without the splitting asteroids. Shoot down enemy ships and avoid their fire, while you look for survivors. The men don't show up on the screen, instead you have to follow the coordinates at the bottom of the screen. When in the vicinity of the correct coordinates, press the S button, and you reach the second screen.

The second screen is seen from the side, your helicopter hovering above the sea surface with a ladder hanging out to pick up the floating men. The waters are patrolled by a man-eating shark, though, so hurry up or it will be well-fed. You have a small number of bombs that you can drop on the sharp.

The first screen is played with the keyboard, whereas the second uses the joystick. Both use four-colour medium resolution graphics. [source:mobygames]
