Game & Watch

I added games that are available in the archives but not in the other 4 sources. I also fixed a formatting error.
There are no "Game & Watch ROMs"; each Game & Watch game is a self-contained unit that is custom-built to each game. However, there are different ways to play the games in a virtual matter.
* Nintendo officially released virtual reproductions in the games and compiled them in the ''Game & Watch Gallery'' (and, later, ''Game & Watch Collection'') series of games. These games had both "classic" and "modern" variations of these games. While thses collections have a loss of "authenticity" (especially in the collections that are running on earlier hardware), these collections are Game Boy, Game Boy Color, Game Boy Advance, and DS games for which emulators are widespread. (A few games are from the difficult-to-pirate DSiWare series, though every game in the DSiWare series appears in another collection.) However, some of the games in the collection (notably '''Zelda''') may need to be unlocked before play.
* [http://www.pica-pic.com/ Pica Pic] (by Hipopotam) is an online collection of Game & Watch games under an authentic presentation. While there seems to be no way to play these games offline, there are a few games that are exclusive to the website, one example being ''Nu, pogodi!''
* Madrigal wrote some [http://www.madrigaldesign.it/sim/ simulations] that give an offline, authentic presentation of the Game & Watch games, the collection of these games growing through time. Of particular note is that these simulations are available to play through [[RetroArch]] through the gw-libretro core. There are also some simulations that are not of the Game & Watch series.
