Smuggly Systems Interactive games -> FREE (LCD games!)

There's a number of well made LCD games by these guys that just went free, I'd snag'em if you're into LCD / Game & Watch games - in fact some of these are G&W games (Fire & Helmet) and while they seem a tad easier than the originals, they're pretty close and they do play well.

I actually grabbed these this morning after checking my app shopping apps. I haven't tried them to know if they are worth recommending yet, but for free it was worth grabbing them all especially since one of them is based on Dr. Slump's Arale character. Dr. Slump is the series that Akira Toriyama did before Dragon Ball and even has a cross over moment in DB when Goku meets Arale. Anyway, get these if you like LCD games... maybe I'll try em later and note any that are especially good.

Right on, thank for the heads up! I can remember when I was younger, getting 1 LCD game a month from the local WalMart... The TMNT ones were my absolute fav... wish they'd port one/all of those. =oP

That would be nice. Thx in advance. Here you have a list you can C&P if you want:

Titanic LCD – Save the passengers as they jump from the burning ship. Don’t let them get eaten by the sharks! Each lifeboat holds up to four passengers. Catch the falling passengers in a lifeboat and move it to shore to rescue them.

Rain Storm LCD – Just as you finish hanging out your laundry.. a rain storm has started. Don’t let the rain get your shirts wet! Move the clothes lines so that the rain drops miss your shirts. Each rain drop missed scores a point.

Sleepwalker LCD – Remove dangerous objects from the path of the sleep walkers!

Safari LCD – Escape from the cannibalistic natives to the safety of your helicopter. Don’t let the natives see you, or they’ll cook you for dinner!

Monkey LCD – Mercilessly club monkeys with your monkey whacker as they climb the trees in an attempt to steal your coconuts. Monkeys will start to appear in higher numbers and move faster as you play. Animal lovers, do not fear—the monkey whacker is made of a soft material and the monkeys are not killed, merely stunned.

Fishing Boy – Catch as many fish as you can!

Search Light LCD – Escape from jail without being discovered by the search light or the guards!

Helmet LCD – Control Bob, an OH&S safety inspector, to navigate an unsafe work area. Avoid the falling objects and help Bob reach the safety of the OH&S tea room!

Coffee House – Serve the customers as they appear.

Arale 3 – Ncha! Bycha – Greet the characters as they appear with the Ncha button, before they get angry and hit you.

Trojans Attack! – Your soldiers and enemy soldiers run towards the castle. Let enemy soldiers fall into the moat, while allowing your soldiers to enter the castle by lowering the drawbridge (right button). When trojan horses appear, soldiers will try to enter the castle from the horse’s neck. Use your spear (left button) to attack enemy soldiers from above.

All Universal apps with Game Center and low size btw.

Thanks. It seems odd but Helmet LCD, Rain Storm LCD, and Titanic LCD are not listed in US iTunes. I do see them in GB store. Also Coffee House, Arale 3 Ncha Bycha, and Trojans Attack looked to be LCD games as well.

Hey, you're right!

Glad I bought them when I did, I have Helmet and Fire on my iPhone. Looks like someone at Nintendo asked Apple to pull the G&W clones.
