More than a fresh coat of paint

Most fans of the Game & Watch series likely enjoy it for its simplicity. The nature of the original devices meant that certain allowances had to be made for the primitive visuals, sounds and rigid controls. All three of these things are charming in...

Modern Octopus is my favorite of these with Modern Oil Panic being second. I don't much like the Classic versions, I find them too slow and boring. Still worth a download though.

Finding an orginal copy was hard. I actually got on last year at a car boot for £1.

I'll download this however.

This was my very first introduction to the Game & Watch handheld games, and it's still a good compilation

I had doubts about the G&W Gallery games originally, but I was quite surprised at how much fun they were when I finally tried them.
Unlocking stuff in the museum is a nice way to add incentive to getting high scores, and it's always fun to see how high/far you can go, or how long you can last, making this collection more fun & challenging then you'd think. (Regardless wich game mode you're playing.)
I even enjoy playing the "Classic" bleepy modes to personally, and I never owned an actual G&W game. (Aside from a "Super Mario Bros." keychain G&W "Mini-classics" game they used to have in stores recently.)
Shame it lacks more "unlockable games" that the future G&W Gallery installments had, but at the low price for 4 games, or 8 if you include the modern versions it's still fun, and worth a shot for arcade fans, and even some who don't normally care for high-score-based games.
Maybe you'll be as surprised as I was with this game.

Resisted buying this for the longest time because I thought it was short. But when it came out on the Eshop, I was surprised on how much it has. Even though there are not as much games as the others, it's still a lot of fun.
