    Great show, thanks. I remember really struggling to find the manual when I wrote my article a couple of months back. It seems to be missing in action for all versions of the game as far as I can tell so I pieced together the objectives of the game from every other source I could find. I read all the reviews for all platforms, read forums, watched YouTube videos, and played the game myself.

    I had the same thought as you guys when I first approached it – why can’t you just close all the beaches to prevent any shark attacks? Well you do that and you come into conflict with the mayor. This is one of the few aspects of the game that correlates with the movie. You’re pre-occupied with keeping people safe, while he’s more concerned with maintaining tourist footfall and keeping the money flowing in.

    The idea is, if you cordon off the water, but keep the beaches open, the day-trippers will go to the next town instead where they can swim, paddle about on inflatables and so on. This would be the next best solution, except the potential plot hole is explained away in the movie to ensure the whole premise doesn’t fall flat on its face. It would be a pretty dull movie if the police closed off the beaches entirely, killed Jaws, then re-opened them again.

    There’s a great clip of a Sam Fox interview on YouTube somewhere. She was there to push the idea that she’d evolved from being just a Page 3 pin-up and intended to show the world that she has a brain as well as her other more obvious assets. She waffled on so much about nothing particularly relevant that she had to stop in her tracks and ask the interviewer to remind her what the question was. It ends up on lots of these blooper montage shows.
