Chef is a 1981 action Game & Watch game developed by Nintendo R&D1 and published by Nintendo. A part of the Game & Watch's Wide Screen series, the game sees the player playing as a chef who attempts to keep ingredients in the air using a frying pan. The game first released on September 8, 1981,[1] with a Nintendo DSi port later releasing in 2009 (Japan) and 2010 (North America and Europe).[2] Chef has also been included in multiple Game & Watch collection games, such as Game & Watch Gallery 2[3] and Game & Watch Gallery Advance.[4]

Gameplay[edit]

In the game, players take control of a chef who attempts to juggle ingredients with a frying pan so that they don't touch the floor.[5] Each ingredient falls at different speeds and the game gets faster as it goes on. During gameplay, a cat will randomly appear and hold the far left ingredient in mid-air with a fork, which is intended to throw the player off. If an ingredient hits the ground, a mouse will steal it, resulting in the player losing one of three lives.[6]

The game has two modes: Game A and Game B, with B being faster and requiring players to juggle four ingredients, as opposed to A's three.[6] Like most other Game & Watch titles, Chef includes a built-in clock.[7]

Development and release[edit]

Chef was published by Nintendo and was developed by one of its video game development teams, Nintendo Research & Development 1,[1] which was then led by game designer Gunpei Yokoi.[8]

Chef released on September 8, 1981, and was a part of the Game & Watch's Widescreen series.[1] Since, the game has been included in multiple Game & Watch collection games.[3][4] A DSiWare port was announced by Nintendo in June 2009.[9] The port released later the same month on July 29, 2009 in Japan, with English releases following on March 22, 2010 (North America) and March 26, 2010 (Europe).[2] To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the Game & Watch, Nintendo released Chef, along with other Game & Watch games, as solar powered keychains.[10]

Reception[edit]
