Yes i know there is another topic about best game&watch games.. but i thought i would make one a little more in depth...

Ok first of all i think that there are quite a few games that i would consider ranking higher than many other game&watches.

Examples : Donkey kong jr (both panorama and widescreen) Donkey kong 1 and 2, Squish, Climber, Balloon fight, Safe buster, Mario cement factory and even Pinball. The reason is because of the varying gameplay. You don´t HAVE to be at one exact spot at the exact right time, or you will loose a life. In these games you can choose youre own game style. In Donkey kong jr for instance, You could either jump over tons of enemies, or (my favorite) be as quick as posible and get that friggin´key in the lock.

Whereas in tropical fish, for example, you have be where the fish is or you loose a life. Don´t get me wrong i like that game too, it´s just that thoose kinda games are a bit stressful and less intresting.
So what about Safe buster then? isn´t that one extremely stressful? well duh! but still you can choose to empty the bombs on either the left side (which is of course most desirable since it will set off a flame that will eventually set the villian´s arse on fire :) or the right side.
That particular game also happens to have very nice "music" bits..(if you can call the beeping music).

In climber you can choose so many ways that it almost feels like a video game! (perhaps ice climber which it was based on). There are also quite a few enemies in that game.

The ones i don´t like are mostly those that goes on and on and on to 9999 points. I do like snoopy tennis, but that game would have been PERFECT if it would have stopped at 999. I mean, the gameplay is extremely slow at the start and then gets a little bit faster until at 1000 points the speed decreases almost to where it was at 0 points. The same goes with fire attack and turtle bridge. They would have been soo much better if gamespeed would have picked up faster and increased until 999 and then start over at zero.
There are a few exeptions though ; pinball for example. Well that one is also veeery long but still something new happens all the time and you can bounce that ball all over the place and in game b you can have 3 balls at the same time to make things more interesting.

Wow now i have blabbered on for too long.
I am eager to know What you guys think?

Which games are the best and why?

And which are the worst?


Game on!

Forgot about octopus!

Love that game since you can either be a brave son of a gun and grab as many gold coins as possible before those monster tentacles squeeze the life out of you, or be a wimp and just grab one coin and run to the boat as fast as you can

Hi there,

I have different favorites and categories:

emotionally favorites:
- Bomb Sweeper & Squish, I had them personally when I was a child, so the are very special to me!
- Donkey Kong Jr, Octopus and Parachute, I played them very often with my cousin

favorites design:
- I love Tropical Fish, Flagman and Mario the Juggler, Snoopy Tennis, Life Boat
- All the Crystal Screens from that time are a highlight !

favorites to play:
- Donkey Kong Jr. offers a timeless gameplay, love it to play !
- Tropical Fish is also challenging
- Vermin is fun to play, also Green House
- In fact I play a lot of :GW2:

worst to play:
- Fire Attack, Lion and Rain Shower are hard to play
- The timing with those Games is extremly hard (at least for me)

maybe all the list above are not yet fully complete ;)

Hi!

Yeah topical fish is very nice to look at and very nicely done backrounds and it´s cool that the guy is is quite big, for a game&watch game. It took me very long though to get good at it. it´s so hard to see which fish will fall first.
What´s your high score? Mine is 772 after many attempts.
A pity that you can´t get double points though.

I haven´t bought vermin yet. Is it hard to play?

Thinking of buying judge - because of the 2 player game feature..

Anyway as far as grafic goes i think gold cliff is very nicely done. Really looks like you´re inside a mayan pyramid-cave sort o thing.

Oh by the way, mario the juggler is on it´s way to my collection :) From what i have heard it is
a really nice game but quite hard..

cheers

Max

Hi Max

Don't remember exactly my highscore with Tropical Fish, but I don't think it was more than yours ;) I will give a try soon :)

Vermin is very "old style", in the beginning it can be a little bit annoying, but keep playing, and you will see, it's pretty fun to smash the hammer on the moles :mrgreen: the speed sometimes is crazy and you really have to be in place (not so easy), give a try!

Mario the Juggler is actually the same gameplay as BALL, just Mario is in place with nice colored backgrounds :) a very nice game, personally I don't think it's hard to play, also scores raises up very fast (at least in mode B).

Wow!

Today Mario the juggler arrived!
It was in pretty good shape but lots of dirt on it so i cleaned it up and voila! It jumped up a step to very good condition :). I love it already! Firstly because it´s quite rare, so it´s my Little treasure :), and secondly the Graphics are totally Amazing. It really looks like youre in mario´s universe.

Cool to see some other characters as well : Lakito, Hammer Bros and Toad.

After 200 Points the game starts to get super fast!. My high score as of yet, is 493 :)

I looked on ebay for gameplay of vermin and i like it!
Gonna check prices on ebay.. Although i´ve bought my usual 2 game&watches per month already. (a want them all but can´t afford more than that).

How many do you have?

Max

Congratulations for Jugger, indeed, really very nice :thumbup:

Vermin should be easy to find for reasonable price ;)

Let's say I have a lot, and I mean a lot :mrgreen:
