in the year of 1995 nintendo released a small compilation of game & watch titles for the gameboy simply titled "game & watch gallery".



the games featured were fire, manhole, octopus, and oil panic, and they came with two different styles of gameplay, played in the classic LED game & watch form, or a modernized gameboy version featuring known mario characters and enemies. the series ran for four games, ending with a gameboy advance release. the second game & watch gallery is my favorite among the bunch

The cover art rings a bell.

I had very few Gameboy games, as I was never a portable player (excepting vacation trips). Probably the one I got the most out of was an All Star NBA game that had various challenges featuring NBA Stars. I always chose Reggie Theus, Chris Mullin, or Tom Chambers.

You love this signature.

I had Mario's Cement Factory, which was awesome.


Also, Donkey Kong 2


My best friend had the Legend of Zelda watch,


which I'm guessing was not as cool as the Zelda Game & Watch. I never played it but it looks more awesomer.

That Zelda watch looks simular to this Donkey Kong watch I used to have. Though, I don't think it was made as a Game and Watch product.

It wasn't. Even though it is a watch, and a game, the watch was just a "game watch", not a Game & Watch which is different. All actual Game & Watch things were in the proto-Gameboy style like the other ones I mentioned.

Yeah, Nintendo's commercials, merchandising, spinoff products used to be unbelievably cool. Especially the promo art and how the characters could look so different all the time. That actually drew me in more back in the day. I would study the hell out of that little picture and the graphics on Mario's Cement Factory, with Mario's different hat and such. I think this changed because of the Zelda CD-i games and Nintendo decided to restrict the art after that.

So that Zelda game is pretty expensive, yeah. There are a few on ebay with lots of bids and still days left. You could spend $100 easy on one. I'm glad they made the Gallery series so I can play these games without spending so much. Although I wish they had categorized the games differently. It would be nice to have all the Donkey Kong games on one cart.
