Nintendo Mini Classics Bring Back Memories of Game & Watch

by Paul Strauss

If you grew up in the 1980s, you probably remember Nintendo’s Game & Watch LCD games. These primitive portable games were the great-grandparents of the Game Boy, GBA, and DS, and now they’re back for you to enjoy once again.

These Nintendo mini classic games have gotten a modern makeover, with all of the electronics fitting neatly into a keychain-sized gadget.

Each one hearkens back to a classic Game & Watch title. There’s Super Mario Bros., Donkey Kong Jr., and Mario’s Cement Factory, among others. All of them feature the same rudimentary LCD animations found on their ancestors, along with simplistic color overlays.

Each of the Nintendo Mini Classics is available over at Firebox for £9.99 (appx. $16 USD). But if you’re willing to dig around a bit over on Amazon, you can find some of these for as little as $2.99!

    I’ve been trying to find my silver one of these for a while now. It was sort of a recreation of the final level of Super Mario Bros.

  2. Alex says:

    I definitely need to get the Mario one. I don’t think they’ve released it on any of the Game & Watch collections for the Gameboy and DS.
