Nintendo Game & Watch

The successful line of Game & Watch handhelds were developed by Gunpei Yokoi, who was also responsible for the Game Boy and the Virtual Boy, between the years 1980 and 1991.  Each G&W had a single built-in game displayed on a LCD screen as well as a clock and alarm.  Games like Zelda and Mario Bros. Cement Factory came in a double-screen, foldable form.

The G&W was eventually succeeded by the Game Boy, because of its inherent advantage of being able to play more than one game via cartridges.  G&W games continue to be popular to this date and are sought after by many collectors.  59 games plus one special edition were released in total including: Donkey Kong (1,2,3), Zelda, Mario Bros., Super Mario Bros., Oil Panic, Fire, Greenhouse, Manhole and Balloon Fight.
