Green House is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Multi Screen series on December 16, 1982. It is a dual-screen single-player Game & Watch. It opens like a compact, with an upper and lower screen.

The object is to protect the flowers at each corner of the screen from enemies using a can of bug spray. Worms attack the top flowers while spiders approach the bottom flowers. The game ends when three flowers have been eaten.

Green House was recreated in Game & Watch Gallery 3 for Game Boy Color and Game & Watch Collection for the Nintendo DS (a Club Nintendo-exclusive).

In the Super Smash Bros. series, Mr. Game & Watch has an attack which has him spray opponents with a can of bug spray, referencing Green House.

This is considered by some retro gamers to be the first appearance of Stanley the Bugman, the lead character in 1984’s Donkey Kong 3 arcade game. In that title, the character defends his greenhouse from Donkey Kong and insects using a can of bug spray. The character artwork between the two games is also similar in design.
