In the early 1980s, my mum bought the Snoopy Tennis Nintendo Game & Watch; twenty years on it was mine. I loved it: it was fun and it looked great. The visuals looked like they had been stamped into the screen against a half-assed colour background, and if you tilted it the right way against the light you could see the shadows of all of the game elements mapped out perfectly. The liquid crystal display allowed only for pre-defined movement with very satisfyingly limited animation. It was so simple, but brought two generations a lot of joy!I’ve included elements from all eighteen of the widescreen games - can you spot them all?Made for Creative Gamers’ recent exhibition Nostalgia Console at Juno Shoreditch, London.

FEAR AND LOATHING IN THE MUSHROOM KINGDOM
"Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the goombas start closing in, the only cure is to load up on fire flowers and then kart like a bastard from The Mushroom Kingdom to Rainbow Road…with the music at top volume and at least a dozen 1-Ups." - description quote from Busted Tees
Busted Tees has this new awesome design that blends the dark comedy of the film Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas with Nintendo’s favorite son. It’s only $20 but it makes me wonder what Super Mario Sunshine Acid would taste like.
