Game & Watch: Judge

This is my recreation of the game & watch classic: Judge!

Game & Watch game's were hand held consoles created by Nintendo in the 1980's. Due to the game technology of the time, the games had on and off pictures with no animation, usually with a black cartoonish character called "Mr.Game & Watch".

This was originally made for the Game & Watch collab by Holmfry (if you haven't seen his G&W games, see the link to them at the bottom), however, due to lack of participation, it was cancelled. I would still like to thank him for inspiring me to make a G&W game.


This is a Game & Watch recreation of Judge. It is my favorite Nintendo Game & Watch classic. The goal is to try and hit your enemy on the head with the mallet is your number is higher, or run away if your number is lower. If you are correct, you gain points. If you are incorrect, your opponent gains points. First person to 20 points wins.


From the main screen, when the game is flicking on and off, select Game A or Game B. Game A allows play for one player and a computer, while Game B allows play for 2 players!

Note: In Game A, the player is the person on the right, and the computer is on the left. Use either the buttons or the arrow keys to attack(left arrow key release)/dodge(right arrow key release)

In Game B, player one is on the right and uses the right arrow key to attack,left arrow key to run away while player two uses the a button to run away and the d button to attack.

After the clock finishes ticking down, a number will appear over both players heads. If the number on your head is higher than the other player, you must attack before he runs away to get a point. If it is lower, vice versa. If both numbers are the same you must be the first to attack to get the point.

If you would like to go back to the title screen, press the ACL button. Press the Timer button for a surprise. :O

This is an incredible recreation. I've been looking for something like this so I won't get bored during the lockdown. I love the fact that there is no difficulty option forcing me to "get god" and actually learn, instead of giving me a pass like nothing (This is a genuine thing, I love it). One thing I will say that you need to tell players the keybinds in the game itself. I hope Nintendo never takes this down.
9/10, will keep this tab pinned.

Stupid Computer, it's too fast for me, great game though. Make more!
