Mario the Juggler, the last Game & Watch system produced

Mario the Juggler was the final Game & Watch unit produced until Parachute × Octopus for Game and Watch Collection 2, being released on October 14, 1991[1].

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. Mario the Juggler is actually based on the first Game & Watch game produced, 1980's Ball, with Mario themes replacing the original's generic juggler and his balls.
