Sly spy secret agent on amstrad cpc
Parachute game and watch series
There was another game that had a first level demo on a amstrad action cover tape where you were a diver underwater and you were attacked by sharks among other things. Just cannot remember the name of the game

The beach level in Viz - The Computer Game featured The Pathetic Sharks.

LEGO Universe had some - if you tried to fire a cannonball at a distant ship, a shark jumped out of the water and swallowed it. There were also some sharks hung up over a fisherman's hut. If you shot them down, some of them dropped those cannonballs as items.

I've played a few hours of Jaws Unleashed and I like it. It's hilarious when you grab a scientist and then use his severed arm to open a security gate. One of those, it's so bad it's good games.

Yeah, like an underwater GTA with a big shark and divers to kill instead of hookers.

There's definitely one in Vice City (I heard about it online then saw it myself when playing my copy). You can see it by standing on the end of a pier near the lighthouse at Vice Beach. It just swims about in that one section of water but you can't interact with it in any way or shoot it.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.
