The Game & Watch series holds a special place in gaming history as one of the pioneering handheld gaming devices. Created by Nintendo in the early 1980s, these portable LCD games were an instant hit and laid the foundation for the future of handheld gaming. Each Game & Watch unit featured a single game, accompanied by a simple LCD screen and a set of buttons.
These handheld devices were known for their compact size, innovative gameplay, and catchy jingles. The Game & Watch series introduced popular titles such as “Ball,” “Mario’s Cement Factory,” “Donkey Kong,” and “Octopus.” Players would spend hours trying to beat their high scores and complete various challenges within each game’s limitations.
What set the Game & Watch series apart was its dual-functionality as a timekeeping device. In addition to playing games, these devices also served as portable alarm clocks or watches, making them practical and versatile.
The success of the Game & Watch series paved the way for Nintendo’s future handheld endeavors, including the Game Boy, Nintendo DS, and the Nintendo Switch. While the Game & Watch series may seem simplistic by today’s standards, its impact on the gaming industry is undeniable.

Mickey & Donald
