Spitball Sparky was released on February 7, 1984, and is one of the only two Supercolor Game & Watch games ever produced.[1] It was later ported as an unlockable game in Game & Watch Gallery 3. As Sparky, players have to shoot blocks by keeping a ball afloat with puffs of air, creating a game similar to Breakout or Arkanoid. The player will earn points based on how fast he or she finishes the level. Eventually, blocks that require two hits to break will appear, as well as unbreakable barriers that get in the player's way.

On a side note, in Game B, blocks will have the habit of disappearing briefly.

Trivia[edit]

  • One of Mr. Game & Watch's moves involves blowing a puff of air as his hands disappear, referencing Spitball Sparky.
