Game and Watch Gallery

Parachute is a Game & Watch game released on 19 June 1981 as part of the Wide Screen range. As most Game and Watch games, the game has two difficulty settings, Game A and Game B.


In Parachute, several Mr. Game & Watches acting as parachutists drop out from a helicopter flying above the sea. The player has to control a boat so that the parachutists safely land on it instead of in the water, where sharks wait for them. If a parachutist falls into the water and gets eaten by a shark, it counts as a miss. In Game B, some parachutists get stuck in a tree and swing back and forth for a few moments.

Catching a parachutist in the boat awards one point. The maximum amount of points the player able to acquire is 999. When the counter reaches 200 or 500, all misses counted are deleted. With each 100 points, the increasing speed of the game returns to normal.

Due to this Game & Watch unit having a wide screen, up to ten parachutists can be on the screen at the same time.
