Turtle Bridge is a Game & Watch system that is also available as a port in Game & Watch Gallery 3. In the original version, released on February 1, 1982, the player had to move a character across a bridge of turtles. This game had the character delivering packages from one side of a lake to another and using the bridge of turtles, he would be able to successfully deliver the items to the receiver (who is found on the other side). However the turtles at time will go down into the lake to eat fish and if the player jumps onto the descending turtle, that player will lose a life.

In Game A, most fish appear to the left and right of the center turtle. In Game B, however, fish will appear more frequently for the center turtle.

In the modern version, the game stars Toad as the main character, who must deliver various packages and items from Mario to Princess Peach. Unlike the original, this game does not take place in a lake but instead in the sky, as Toad is delivering the packages from Mario's castle to Peach's castle and rather than turtles, Toad crosses a bridge of flying Goonies to accomplish his task. Sometimes the Goonies would drop down to pop balloons that are floating up to the sky. If Toad was to jump on a Goonie that is descending to pop a balloon, he would fall off and lose a life. In this version, many elements from the Mario franchise were also added, such as Coins that remained suspended in the air and rewarded Toad with extra points if he collects them. To play, use +Control Pad to move or A Button and B Button to go left and right respectively.
