Killer Shark is a 1972 electro-mechanical hunting game produced by Sega. A shark moves around the playing field and the player shoots it with a spear gun. It has a series of slides on a wheel that makes the shark move and thrash around when shot. The game features electronic sound and an 8-track player. It is essentially the same game as Sega's Sea Devil, but Sea Devil has a manta ray instead of a shark.
A Killer Shark cabinet can be seen briefly in the 1975 movie Jaws. Irony ensues.
