Game & Watch Gallery 4 (known as Game & Watch Gallery Advance in Europe) is a video game for the Game Boy Advance. It is the fourth game in the Game & Watch Gallery series, and it is the only one to have the most games available and it was developed and published by Nintendo, and released on October 28, 2002, with an ESRB rating of "E for everyone." It allows people to play classic Game & Watch games again, or experience them for the first time.

The Games[edit]

Modern vs. Classic[edit]

Game & Watch Gallery 4 featured both modern and classic versions of its six standard games, as well as the first five unlockable games. The classic version had lcd style graphics and the same gameplay as the original Game & Watch handheld games, while the modern version had updated graphics, music, and color and replaced the original characters and items with ones from the Mario series. Also the gameplay was changed in some games and might have had a new challenge.

Standard Games[edit]

From the start there are six games that you will be able to play. Both Boxing and Donkey Kong 3 can be played with another player using another Game Boy Advance and a link cable. Only one cartridge is necessary.

  • Boxing - Punch out your opponent before he does the same to you.
  • Donkey Kong 3
  • Donkey Kong Jr.
  • Fire - Bounce all the occupants of the blazing building to safety using a trampoline
  • Mario's Cement Factory - Deliver the cement to a truck. This is a cookie factory reminiscent of Yoshi's Cookie in modern mode.
  • Rain Shower - Keep the raindrops off the sheets in classic mode, or move your friends away from under Bowser's paint balloons in modern mode.
