A load of old balls
Before the world-crushing DS, before the Game Boy began its decade-plus of supremecy, Nintendo’s handheld division began with the humble Game & Watch line, which started with the even more humble Ball in 1980. Over the past 30 years, odds are good that if you’ve had any interest in the company’s portables you’ve come across this one. Maybe you played it as you stood..
About The Game
Experience a piece of Nintendo history with the Game & Watch series for Nintendo DSiWare. Each title is a perfect recreation of a classic LCD game from the early 1980s, including normal Game A and alternate Game B modes.
And no Game & Watch title would be complete without the ‘Watch’ function - each title includes a fully functional clock.
Ball was the first original Game & Watch ever to be produced. As a juggler (who we now know as Mr Game & Watch), you must keep the fragile balls up in the air for as long as possible, scoring points for each catch. Don't drop even one ball or it’s Game Over! Game A features two balls to juggle, Game B has three balls, each worth 10 points per catch.
