The Star Fox LCD game watch

watch In order to promote Star Fox, Nintendo licensed M.Z. Berger (part of Nelsonic now?) to produce an LCD game watch. Although later offered in stores, the first watches were made for Nintendo's promotional tie-in with Kelloggs. Unfortunately, Kelloggs only offered the watch with Corn Flakes--and its larger size boxes, no less! That means I suffered through all too much of a cereal I don't like for Star Fox, but it was worth it. Of course then I saw essentially the same thing in stores later on...

watchThe watch itself is surprisingly fun and, for an LCD game, it controls pretty well. There are four levels of difficulty as you fly through Corneria. The objective is to shoot enemies for points (max score is 1999) while dodging falling towers and replenishing resources on your way to the Attack Carrier.

Below are a few pictures from the back of the smaller sized Corn Flakes boxes which didn't have the watch offer.
