Parachute - Game and Watch title comes over to the ZX Spectrum

Another day and another Game and Watch mention, as the previous one was called 'Donkey Kong Jr' which was ported over to multiple commodore systems, and this latest release called 'Parachute' has been developed for the ZX Spectrum. Now unlike the other game port developed by alargames and starring Mario, Parachute was a game released in 1981 and has been ported/remade to the ZX  Spectrum by Carles Oriol.

According to the Wikipedia write up for the game " Parachute is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Wide Screen series on June 19, 1981. The player controls a character in a boat and has to prevent parachutists from landing in shark-infested waters. A life is lost every time the player fails to do this. In Game B, the parachutes can get stuck in trees. Parachute was recreated in Game & Watch Gallery for Game Boy, Game & Watch Gallery 2 for Game Boy Color, Game & Watch Gallery 4 for Game Boy Advance and Game & Watch Collection 2 for the Nintendo DS (a Club Nintendo-exclusive)".
