Flagman (originally spelled Flag Man in North America) is one of the first Game & Watch systems, released as a part of the Silver series on June 5, 1980.[1] It is one of the games in the Gallery Corner in the original Game & Watch Gallery. It was later remade for Game & Watch Gallery 3, as an unlockable game.

Gameplay[edit]

Flagman as it appears in Game & Watch Gallery 3

The player has to press buttons that correspond with the number shown to make the flagman either hold a flag or show his feet. The better the player gets at the game, the harder the game gets. If the player presses the wrong button at any time or does not press a button within the time limit, that player will lose a life. When the player loses three lives, they receive a Game Over.

In Game A, the player has to follow the flag order that is given to them, with each round having one more number than the last. The player receives a point for every sequence they correctly follow. In Game B, the player has to raise the flag that matches the number shown, but the time to do so shortens as the player progresses. Every correct button the player presses is worth a point.

Controls[edit]

  • +Control Pad (up): 1
  • A Button: 2
  • +Control Pad (down): 3
  • B Button: 4

Appearances in other games[edit]

Flagman D-D of Wario Land II is also a remake of Flagman, hence the name. Instead of a flagman, a D.D. hosts it. The controls are different too, and two more buttons will be added progressively.

Lastly, a microgame based on Flagman appears in WarioWare: Touched!, just like some other Game & Watch games. Players use the Stylus to select the foot or flag.
