You see, I had a bit of traumatic experience in the lavatory last week. I'd gotten my moist toilet tissues mixed up with a packet of self-tanning wipes, and - suffice to say - I didn't know where it was all coming from. I was in there for hours calling for help, and by the time I figured out what was happening, my throat was raw, and I had the brownest bumcrack in all of Ancient Greece!
However, this has afforded me plenty of time to enjoy one of my other favourite things: Nintendo's Game & Watch handheld game series. I'd therefore like to present to you this gallery of some of the more obscure entries in Nintendo's long-running series. TTFN!
In Judge, two players went head to head, controlling hammer-wielding characters, who had to wallop their opponent over the head, should they display a higher number than them. You know: like a version of that popular playground game, 'Hitting People on The Head With a Hammer'.
If you are unfamiliar with how that process works, please allow us to elaborate: the hen turns part of the cloaca and the last segment of the oviduct inside out, rather like a glove. The red membrane is then everted inside of these organs. The egg emerges far outside, at the end of the bulging membrane.
Donkey Kong Circus was yet another variation on the move-back-and-forth-and-catch-things genre - albeit with Mario lobbing the things, and Donkey Kong rolling around on a barrel. The Game & Watch Panorama Screen and Tabletop Series games were beautiful to look at, but somewhat less popular than their flat-bodied cousins.
Presumably due to the lack of portability, and the overwhelming technicolour visuals.
