About This File
This pack contains 2D Box Art for 59 of the 60 Game & Watch Titles (56 are currently emulated in MAME). The goal here was to use original box art so 98% of these are made from original hi-res box scans and photos. So like the Game & Watch 3D Box Art Pack bare in mind some of these boxes are nearly 4 decades old and were understandably in pretty rough shape! I've cleaned them up a substantial amount but there are still some imperfections which I left there to preserve the original box as much as possible. So expect some folds, creases, tears, smudges, sticky tape residue! But I think it gives them all a bit of character and keeps them true to life, even if some of them are a bit rough around the edges!
I'll update this set if I can source some really good quality scans of less battered boxes. I may also do an alternate "fully restored" set at some point but that might push those into re-creations. There's quite a few different box shapes and sizes so I've done my best to represent these as authentically as possible whilst keeping a consistent width (1280px) and a reasonable file size. Files are named as per MAME 0.231
Hopefully you like them 🙂
- The missing box art is for Super Mario Bros. YM-901-S. Still figuring out how to go about this one as it's a little bit different Plus I'm looking for a really good high definition scan of the "box".
