I lived on LCD handhelds when I was a kid. I'd love to give this a try if you have any promos left!

I would love a code. Big fan of old G&W/Tiger electronics styled games. Would gladly review on iTunes.

Dawn of Play...thank you. You truly took me back to a better place in my life. Slide to Play weren't kidding when they said this was a labour of love. Everything about Monkey Labour oozes Game & Watch. The instruction manual, the actual device, the lack of music, every single thing about this game is f***ing charming. Thank you.

Oh...my old man will probably s*** bricks once he sees this. =P

Game Impressions

Very nicely produced game!

A+ attention to detail, a recreation of the old school Game & Watch LCD experience with tons of polish. Plays great and is definitely a "pick up & play" type of game. Time will tell how much replay value this type of game will have but they certainly kept me occupied for long hours as a kid.

The game really does work just like the old handhelds, but there is one tiny correction you might like to make: the in-game instruction page indicates that you are stoking the fire by shoving bricks into the fireplace, not logs.

Generally, this would be counter-productive. >_>

Question - one of the on-screen elements identified in the instructions are "Gears" at the top of the screen. What are they for, when do they come into play?
