Retro console lovers are probably familiar with the iconic Game & Watch that Nintendo produced during the 1980s. They are handheld devices which, back then, contained a single game as well as a clock on an LCD screen.
The original Game & Watch consoles were one of Nintendo's first globally successful products, and over the last few years have seen a resurgence in popularity thanks to two successful re-releases. In 2020 Nintendo came out with the Game & Watch: Super Mario Bros, and in 2021 we got the Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda.
A Super Mario Bros Game & Watch is more expensive at the moment, but The Legend of Zelda edition is regularly discounted. Right now you can grab a Game & Watch: The Legend of Zelda for just £30 from John Lewis.
£30 is the price the Game & Watch usually goes on sale for at places like The Game Collection, so it's good to see John Lewis selling it for £30 at the base level. At one point this Game & Watch fell to £21.49 at Amazon, but until that happens again £30 is the best price.
For that price, you get a small but very stylish hand held that comes with The Legend of Zelda, Zelda II: The Adventure of Link,The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, a special version of Game & Watch classic Vermin starring Link as a playable character, and of course the digital clock and timer that are now interactive.
Yes, in true Game & Watch fashion, you can interact with both the digital clock and timer. When you have the clock on you can see Link explore Hyrule and defeat enemies while in the timer Link recreates battle scenes from Zelda II: The Adventure of Link.
The Game & Watch is a great little device to take with you so you can have something classic to play wherever you go, and it's an essential part of a retro-game collection.
