Game & Watch Gallery- Lives Up to its Name
Game & Watch Gallery is a game that brings exactly what the title says. You game, and you watch. That is all you do when you play the game. In this game, there are four game modes you can choose from. These game modes have the ability to make you play for five minutes, then lose and have to restart again. One of these game modes is (in the Mario character version) where you bounce little baby toads and Donkey Kongs to the safety of the gigantic crib that happens to be there when you play the game. This would obviously be a safety hazard in the real world, which would cause many lawsuits and trouble for Nintendo. Luckily, this game is so annoyingly par that you will not care about all of this and you will just try to see if you can beat high scores that you have already set.
Graphics 6: The graphics in this game are not that bad. Even though I would have liked the motions to be more fluid and not jumpy, you have to note that this is on a relatively old platform that had no color incorporated at all.
Sound 7: The sounds in this game are not overwhelmingly good, but they are above par. I really like how catchy the songs are in the game, even though they are not as smooth as some other sounds for the game boy are.
Addictiveness 8: This game is relatively addictive. You have the ability to set your own score for you to beat over and over again, which is fun for a while, but you will- after a long time- get bored and put the game away for a while, only to take it out again when you need something to do.
Story : There is no story to a game that involves high scores with only four game modes.
Depth 4: This score reflects the number of game modes: 4. You get to do the four same game modes over and over again until you drive yourself bonkers and decide to either a) put the game away for a while or b) rage quit the game and throw your laptop against the wall repeatedly to make the game stop repeating itself, only until you realize it isn't your computers fault and you make a review about the game raging about how much you hated it.
Difficulty 8: This game is actually surprisingly hard. You wouldn't realize it, but it is hard to get a very high score on this game. I have never gotten above the recommended amount of 300 points in a game.
Overall 6.6: This game is not a horrible game, but it sure is the
best game average game you would expect to come out of the Game Boy console. You could have fun with this game I suppose, but only if you have a habit to constantly repeat what you do or say, which is very similar to how this game is programmed.
