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. Players have to press buttons that correspond with the number shown to make the pirate 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, that player will lose a life.
Flagman was remade for Game & Watch Gallery 3, as an unlockable game. It has the same rules but with some small differences. In Game A, the player has to follow the flag order that is given to them. In Game B, the player has to raise the flag that matches the number shown.
