Seems like every year or so, some smart alec posts a pic of a Game & Watch that I never saw. I thought I’d seen em all – but that there was basically only about four. The browny-yellowy Donkey Kong one, which I think I still have somewhere, the Snoopy tennis one, a Donkey Kong Jr. one, which definitely existed as I think I have that too though it might not have been Donkey Kong and just some other monkey, and then that red Mario Bros crate-stacking one that my sister had after she was in hospital that I dropped in a canal that time.
And that’s it.
Except, here’s another shmo rocking up with a freakin’ awesome Zelda badboy that I’ve never seen! Though actually, from the screen decals it looks pretty lame. But still, Zelda baby!
Were there others> Is my memory just being lame ass?
oh man wait! i just went on google and spotted bomb sweeper – MAN! that was like pure gold dust in school. some kid had it but no one else had ever seen it, or could find it, and getting a go on it was like a religious experience… bomb sweeper. woof.
and then suddenly i’m on ebay bidding on bomb sweeper… hehe… aah the internet…
These were pretty good back in the day. I remember Robert Delgarno had the Mario one and I was so hyped to be playing Mario while sitting on a coach – it was like the future had arrived! Course the Gameboy was around, but I’d never played one at the time, obviously.
Actually, I believe Sarah has a couple of these. Can’t remember which, but one is boxed and very nice!
By brother had the mario one, you had to catch packages off the conveyor belt and set it on the next one, I was pretty good at iot for a while, I’ve seen that one go for around £30-£40
oh yeah that’s the mario one my sister had. though she was a girl so i just reallocated it to a more discerning audience (me).
on some website they’re going for like 250 quid. though they’re cheaper on ebay. the boxed and mint ones are probably proper money though… the weird thing i always remember is that the buttons felt really nice. they were this really soft kind of rubber or plastic or something. kinda squishy.
