I'll stick to the MSX version though. Very nice game! Fishing, sewing nets, killing sharks until the winter comes. It's almost a hand-held game, but quite original and with lovely colourful graphics! Electric Software was probably the best British MSX software developer. Correct me if I'm wrong!

nice, someone else had found same page... Smile

actually it is not a NEW videopac game, but unreleased one which was released now...

and if you didn´t knew this, Shark Hunter is not the only one Electric Software game on Videopac, there is others too

Norseman for Philips Videopac G-7400

looks just like MSX version

and Buzz Off! (titled as Super Bee)

Philips Videopac G-7000 version here:

G-7400 version has more detailed graphics than MSX version! ;)

(it´s on the bottom of the page)

by the way... on the halfway on that page, there is game called "Trans American Rally", which is said to be best G-7400 game. Does it look any familiar?

It looks just like Konami´s Hyper Rally, except it is published two years earlier.... :) And it´s scenery looks far better than in Hyper Rally.... ;)

Maybe this encourages someone(s) to write "Hyper Rally 2000" or something... LOL! to beat G-7400 game.... :)

another by the way... I have always been interested to know is GST VIDEO same company as Electric Software?

Or is Electric Software affiliate of Philips as GST VIDEO seems to be?

Videopac´s Shark Hunter and Super Bee made by GST VIDEO.
