Game & Watch Mario's Cement Factory (DSiWare) Review

The 1980s are back...for 200 points a piece.
Game & Watch was a line of electronic handheld games through the 80's. It included a game, a clock and an alarm. Game & Watch. Three were released not to long ago on the North American DSiWare Shop. So first up is Mario's Cement Factory. In Mario's Cement Factory, you play...Mario...obliviously and the object of the game is to get the cement from the top of both sides into both trucks, there's no end so you just keep going until you lose and the cement is all over one of the truck drivers. The gameplay here is addicting and fun. There are high scores. The audio & graphics make the game feel like you're in the 80's. It's no 3D, colourful game. All it is, is 2D mostly in black. You get 2 different modes, Mode A and B. B is just more difficult than A. You do get the time in here, but not while you're playing the game. Which sucks. One thing they should have included in this game is an update in graphics, so you see a 2.5D (Look at New Super Mario Bros. for DS) view of things. But one can only dream. 200 points, this is my favourite Game & Watch game so far. I'm giving Mario's Cement Factory for DSi an 8.5 out of 10.
