Escape


Many call LCD Games for "Game & Watch". This name comes from Nintendo's product line of LCD Games. The first one I got was "Escape" made by "Video Technology Limited" in 1981 who's product line was called "Time & Fun". Your task was to help inmates escape from jail. It was not one of the best games, but as it was my first, I played it a lot! I later got better games such as:

These were the games I had myself but I of course played lots of others. As soon as I heard of another person having a game then the mission was to hunt that person down and convince them to let me play it. I played most of the classics such as “Mario Bros”, “Octopus”, Donkey Kong JR”, Donkey Kong 3. It's interesting to think of how most Game & Watch system had their own personality as they did not look like each other. They had a different amount of buttons depending of what was needed for the game. As an example, Donkey Kong 3 were a part of Game & Watch that were called "Micro VS system" which had a kind of corded gamepad in which you could retract the cord.
