Mario's Cement Factory is a Game & Watch game. Two versions of the game were produced: the first was for the Game & Watch Table Top released on April 28, 1983, and the second was a more conventional Wide Screen Game & Watch that was released on June 16, 1983. The Table Top game resembles an arcade cabinet, and it is more colorful than the Wide Screen game. In both versions, Mario's mission in the cement factory is to open doors to prevent cement containers from overflowing. To get to the different containers, Mario has to jump on moving platforms.

There are two drivers, each in a truck under a container; allowing the containers to overflow causes cement to spill down onto the workers, hurting them and giving Mario one miss. Falling off an elevator platform also earns a miss, as well as touching the very top of the screen and getting crushed by an elevator platform, or touching the very bottom and getting shocked by the the floor of the elevator. In all versions of the game, there is an area on the lowermost portion of the elevator that Mario can use to save himself from touching the very bottom and getting shocked. On the Table Top version, there a similar area on the uppermost portion of the elevator. This does not appear on any other version of the game.

The Game & Watch version was re-released on the Game Boy Advance on the cartridge Game & Watch Gallery 4, along with an updated "Modern mode" version that has Mario working in a cookie factory. Yoshi and Toad are featured instead of the drivers. Boos will also occasionally appear, taking up cookie dough slots on the second floor. Unlike Classic mode, however, Mario is allowed to fall down onto an elevator platform, but touching the very bottom or top still earns the player a miss.

Another port of the original version was released in August 2009 for DSiWare in Japan and March 2010 in America, Europe and Australia. It is also available in the Nintendo 3DS eShop as DSiWare. In July-August 2012, to coincide with the release of New Super Mario Bros. 2, it featured on the Mario folder in the main screen.
