Nintendo Game & Watch: Parachute


Found this while clearing up some rubbish at my aunt's. I remember playing this when I was still a tot (it probably is one of the first ever portable game I played, but I can't be sure). Released in June 1981, Parachute was the first of many Nintendo's Game & Watch wide screen games. Gameplay is very simple, just use the left or right keys to move the boat and catch the parachutes from falling into the shark infested water.

Are you by any chance looking to sell it? I had one which I took to school in primary school. Shoulda known better - it was stolen out of my jacket pocket when we were having sports. Been looking to find a replacement for ages.

I have this game. Unfortunately the buttons do not work well because I played with this game for a long time and my other members of my family as well. I do not know where from I could get new buttons to it. Mechanicly it is perfect though.
