Chef is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Wide Screen series on September 8, 1981. Its goal is to keep the food off the ground. If any food hits the ground, the player loses a life. When the player loses three lives, they receive a Game Over. It is one of the games in the Gallery Corner in Game & Watch Gallery. It is also a minigame in Game & Watch Gallery 2 and Game & Watch Gallery 4, both of which include an updated "Modern" version of the game.
The alarm indicator of this game is a kettle that is located between the cat thief and the rat thief, and the kettle whistles smoke when the alarm goes off.
A chef paces back and forth in a kitchen, using his frying pan to keep pieces of food airborne. The player earns a point every time a piece of food hits the pan. If a piece of food ends up on the floor, a mouse will grab it and eat it. The cat at the left-hand side of the screen will occasionally grab the leftmost piece of food with a fork, only to keep it from falling to the ground. It is also the origin of Mr. Game & Watch's standard move in the Super Smash Bros. series. As the game progresses, the food will move faster. At 200 and 500 points, any misses the player has will be erased. In Game A, the player must flip three pieces of food. In Game B, the player must flip four pieces of food.
Princess Peach, who is holding a pan, has to feed Yoshi by cooking the food Mario and Luigi throw into the air. If the food gets crispy, Peach may have to feed it to Yoshi; feeding Yoshi gains a few extra points, but if Yoshi eats any burnt food, he changes into a Little Yoshi. After Yoshi eats five pieces of cooked food in a row, he lays an egg, giving the player five points; after five more pieces of cooked food in a row are served to Yoshi, his egg will hatch into a Little Yoshi, rewarding the player with 20 points. The Little Yoshi grows back up with five more cooked feedings in a row, giving the player five points. If any piece of food goes on the floor, Peach will throw a fit. On Easy Mode, only Luigi throws the food, and it goes straight up when it hits Peach's pan. On Hard Mode, both Mario Bros. throw the food, and it frequently flies off in angles when it hits her pan. At 200, 500, and 700 points, one of the Mario Bros. will toss a heart for Peach or Yoshi to catch to remove a miss. Music is also featured, with the tempo changing depending on the speed of the game.
The food includes the following:
The different foods that the Mario Bros. toss into the air each require a different number of flips before getting crispy (ex. eggs require about three flips to cook).
