Added DiffLines:

* AntiFrustrationFeatures: In ''Mario Bros.'', if you fill the truck or drop a case the game pauses for a quick animation (of the brothers on break until the truck returns, or the foreman reprimanding the brother that dropped the case, respectively). When the game resumes. any cases that were close to falling off the conveyor belt mysteriously disappear, giving you slightly more time to get back into your rhythm.

* FollowTheLeader: The series inspired quite a few handheld electronic games built in the same style, the most well known being Tiger Electronics. Bizarrely enough, while Nintendo made very few new Game & Watch games in the tail end of the 80's and stopped making them entirely in 1991, Tiger's handhelds actually prospered during this era and continued to be produced for a good number of years afterwards.
** Many people bemoan LCD versions of more intricate games such as pinball and card games. Nintendo indulged in themselves, with Multi Screen models appropriately titled ''Pinball'' and ''Blackjack'', respectively.

The games were rereleased on a series of GameBoy games, in sets of four with both the old unaltered version and a new better looking, with a couple of bonus features, version, and tracked scores on each version separately. This was actually one of the first remakes for a console game (albeit handheld), long before the days of SNES->GBA. Several ''Game & Watch'' games (in their original forms) were later released as part of {{DSiWare}}, with much more faithful graphics than the Game Boy editions thanks to the DS's increased capabilities.

When ''VideoGame/SuperSmashBros Melee'' came out, there was a strange character that nobody except the most hardcore of Creator/{{Nintendo}} fans recognized. [[CompletelyMissingThePoint His name was]] [[MarthDebutedInSmashBros Marth]].

* ArtifactTitle: The games no longer have watch or alarm functions. [[CaptainObvious But you probably already knew that]].



** Every modern and classic remake in the ''Gallery'' series has no Time Mode and none of the manuals make any reference to it.

** Every modern and classic remake in the ''Gallery'' series has no Time Mode and none of the manuals make any reference to it.
** Some modern versions of the games in ''Gallery'' also qualify compared to their classic counterparts:
*** In ''Vermin'', you control Yoshi who must defend his eggs against Fly Guys, Paratroopas and Boos instead of vermin. Oddly enough, a Monty Mole will allow Yoshi to clear a miss by giving him a heart.
*** In ''Ball'', the character you play will juggle many items not resembling balls.
*** Subverted in ''Egg''. Instead of catching eggs laid by hens, Yoshi must catch cookies on a conveyor belt. If he eats enough of a type of cookie at the right temperature, he will lay an egg.
*** In ''Turtle Bridge'', you control Toad who must cross a makeshift bridge of Goonies across an open sky instead of turtles across a pond.
*** In the original ''Rain Shower'', a man is trying to keep his hanging clothes dry from a passing shower. In the remake, Mario must protect his friends from paint balloons thrown by Bowser.
*** The remake of ''Mario's Cement Factory'' takes place in a cookie factory.



** In the original ''Mario's Cement Factory'', the moving platforms were lethal if you weren't immediately on their level when trying to board them, falling right through any other platforms that might be on the screen at the time, which could get ridiculous if the platform was about to rise and you just pressed the button a tiny bit too early. In the Modern version, jumping down onto a platform ''below'' you is possible.

* GaidenGame: The first official game in the series is ''Game Boy Gallery'' which was only launched into [[NoExportForYou UK and Australian markets]] in 1994. It includes Ball, Manhole, Vermin, Flagman and Mario's Cement Factory (renamed to just Cement Factory). The games are simply the classic variants with updated visuals, there are no Mario characters or references whatsoever and it noticeably lacks features that made the rest of the series more enjoyable (suspend play, unlockables, score saving etc.). The only reason it can be considered part of the series at all is that Australia used ''Game Boy Gallery'' as its market based title for all future ''Game & Watch Galley'' releases.
