Mario the Juggler is a Game & Watch system released as a part of the New Wide Screen series on October 14, 1991.[1] It is a reworked version of 1980's Ball, with Mario themes replacing the original's generic juggler and his balls. It was the final Game & Watch ever released.


The object of the game is to keep juggling balls, bombs, Stars, hearts, and other iconic Mario objects. In Game A, Mario will have to juggle by himself; Game B introduces characters like the Hammer Bro and Lakitu that will periodically grab some of the items and then toss them back in. As time goes on, the number of objects being juggled increases from one to three (four in Game B), and the items fall faster. As with all Game & Watch games, three misses is a Game Over.



  • The "Modern" version of Ball found in Game & Watch Gallery 2 also features Mario characters in place of the generic juggler, but it is more closely based on the 1980 original rather than Mario the Juggler.
