Game & Watch Ball (DSiWare)

Game Profile

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.

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...

This is kinda expensive for 200 points... They should give all game % watch games in one premium or 500 point title.

These games are a pass for me. Seems like a waste of time to make. Let's make an effort to release games people want to play, Nintendo.

People need to remember that trying to get the phsical version of this game in G&W form is very, VERY Expenive, since it's was Nintendo's first Game & Watch. For 200 points, heck it's a steal for the £250+ it costs to get the real thing! I will admit though that it is a bit on the basic side and it would've been nice if Nintendo made an optional bundle set of 3 G&W games for 500 points or something. Still, knowing that the real game is sort after, 200 points is a steal.
