About this product
- Product InformationClassic Nintendo fans can rejoice with this Game and Watch Collection from Club Nintendo. This compilation cartridge for Nintendo DS includes the three original Game and Watch games: 'Donkey Kong,' 'Oil Panic,' and 'Green House,' all of which were originally released in 1982. The games all retain the graphics and sound of the originals, in an effort to emulate the experience of play on the '80s Game and Watch handheld devices. Additionally, each game has an alarm clock feature built-in, just as it was on the older versions. Each game comes with both A and B modes of play, with the B mode being the more difficult option.

Game and Watch collection
When I first heard about Game and Watch for the DS I was like "Huh?", now I see why. It is a classic from the past and made its way onto the DS. Only one problem; its available only from Club Nintendo. People who joined this program could register their Nintendo games from Wii and DS titles to collect a certain amount of points and then buy something special with those points. Game and Watch collection was the most expensive on the list for 800 points. Meaning you'd have to buy and register at least 16 Wii games; that's spending around $800 for those who wanted to go after the Game and Watch game.
There are 2 Game and Watch titles simply called Game & Watch Collection 1 and Game & Watch Collection 2. I used up my points to redeem Game & Watch Collection 2 on Club Nintendo.
I was going to save up on points again for the first G&W game, until curiousty when through my mind. What if Game and Watch is available through ebay? It is, what surprised me is how much it cost. A lot of them, including the first and the second are sold for around $20. I thought for such a rare title to get you'd pay more for it. So I acted cheap and bought Game & Watch collection 1 on here on ebay.
Why do I like this product? Well, I have the second one so I thought might as well have the first one. And I think it may be worth something once the DS is out of the picture in such and such years and the next big video game console will take over. Even if it doesn't, it's a gem I'd like to keep.
So, if you like games that you can buy cheap through ebay that you know you can never get through Club nintendo. Go for it. Everyone has their ways. Mine is so that I can collect it as part of my video game library.
Hope this helps, even a little. Thanks for reading.Read full review

great old game and watch fun!
game and watch collection is basically 3 emulated game and watch games that came out around the 80's. donkey kong,oil panic,and greenhouse.if you are an old game collector,you'll enjoy it,but if you are into modern remakes its best to turn somewhere else since these are the exact duplicates of the 80's originals . very interesting note :it has the original time and alarm!

Only for true Game & Watch enthusiasts
If you haven't heard of Game & Watch, you should probably avoid this game. Kids these days probably won't appreciate it at all. This game is mostly for the nostalgia, and for the collectable value. I love it because it provides an authentic recreation of 3 classic Game & Watch games.

I bought this because previously I had the old Nintendo handheld console "Oil panic".
It was a funny game, and I am very happy to have it again, in a moder format.
