    Pica Pic (Retro Flash Emulation)
    Game & Watches
    [​IMG]

    Games were once extremely simple and sold on the game play just as much as they did on their design and collectability. Many of our community members will remember Game and Watches/LCD handhelds (thank in part to GBA/NDS Homebrew remakes and ports). Those that do not remember these games and want to experience the next best thing to actually owning one should take a second to check out Pica Pic. The site features Flash based emulation of many popular LCD handheld games, most of which are so precisely emulated that it’s hard to tell the difference.

    A Few Recommendations:
    [​IMG] Octopus
    [​IMG] Zelda
    [​IMG] Donkey Kong Jr.



    Special thanks to Vatoloco for the tip!​

    I used to have a G&W Zelda when I was a kid. Don't know where it came from, but God was it fun.

    I wish they were not so damn expensive... otherwise I would buy one again. Is there a G&W Emulator for the DS? It seems like the perfect platform for one.

    And yes, I have all the G&W GB/GBA/DS games. [​IMG] I really love the G&W series.

    I just got the high score on Zelda for this week.

    I'm so happy.

    EDIT: And then several people quickly beat it...

    Isn't there the 2 Club Nintendo Game and Watch titles? Apart from that, the homebrew as mentioned in the thread is where to go.

    I'm surprised other old games like these haven't been emulated yet (like those old skool electronic games that came out in the 80's 90's, or those video game watches that came out in the 90's(I used to have the starfox one)).
