Manhole - Nintendo Game & Watch
Manhole is a Game & Watch by Nintendo released in 1981 that sold anything between 250K - 1million worldwide.
This handheld game has 4 controls ( Upper Left, Upper Right, Lower Left and Lower Right ) and 3 lives.
You have to move a manhole to cover 4 holes while people are walking to avoid the pedestrian to fall into a sewage. The game starts very low with only 1 person walking but as your score go up, the number of people walking increases turning the game more difficult requiring more timing, technique and coordination.
The maximum score in the Nintendo Game & Watch Manhole is 999 and when you reach 300 points all misses will be reseted, and if you don't have any miss at this time you will get double score until a miss is made.
Every time a pedestrian walks through the manhole without falling, 1 point is scored. When a pedestrian falls into the sewage a miss is scored. When you get 3 misses, the game is over.
This Nintendo Game & Watch is really hard to find and it was one of the first released.
