Chef Nintendo Game & Watch
Chef is one of the fastest Nintendo Game & Watch. This handheld game is very hard to find and was released in September 1981 selling anything between 250,000 to 1 million copies worldwide. Chef Nintendo Game & Watch has two levels of difficulty (Game A and Game B). The game has 2 controls, left and right, and you have to move the Chef through the kitchen in order to keep the meals on the air using a pan. In the Game A, you have to cook three meals but you can only throw one meal each time, so you have to move the Chef character faster to throw all meals and avoid them to fall. There's a cat in a shelf that will sometimes catch a meal with a fork, but will release it after some seconds and this will increase the difficulty of this rare Nintendo Game & Watch.
The difference between Game A and Game B is the number of meals. In Game A you will have 3 meals while in Game B 4 meals will be on screen.

You're a chef in a kitchen and you have to cook three meals at once, so you have to throw the meals in the air to get a another meal in your pan. There's a cat on a shelf that catches the meal with a fork, but then lets it drop after some seconds. Chef is one of the fastest Game & Watch.
In game B there are 4 meals to cook.
Maximum score is 999 and when the score reaches 200 or 500 points all misses are cancelled.
Cheats and tricks:
Speed increases with score, but slow down every 100 points before increasing in speed again. Try to use the slow points in the game to get your breath back. Remember that the food is flipped up at different heights by the chef.
1 Point for each time the chef makes a catch and flips it up again.
If you let drop a meal it'll be eaten by a rat-thief and you'll get a miss. Three misses (shown as a rat-thief) and the game ends.
If you hold in Game A or Game B key the highest previous score will be displayed. If the unit is left as it is after game is over, time display will appear in about five minutes. A game is not interrupted even if TIME key or other game keys are depressed during game playing.
