I am a big fan of the Game & Watch, if this series wasn't around the Gameboy would never exist and handhelds would still be a joke. So this series is my speciality.

Helmet is a game where the main aim is to move from the left side of the screen to the right while avoiding falling objects. In this case, move from a factory to a shed before a series of tools fall on you. The gameplay is so simple yet addictive and I'm glad to own one because Helmet can go up to £60-£150. I'm not very good at it (I can barely get 100 points) but I still enjoy playing it and if you find a cheap one pop up on eBay or at a market, DON'T MISS OUT!!
