Lifeboat is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Multi Screen series on October 25, 1983. It is a dual-screen single-player Game & Watch with a light orange case. It opens like a book, with a left and right screen.
A burning oceanliner is displayed, and the player pulls a raft through shark-infested waters to catch the people who fall from the ship. The rafts can hold up to 4 people, and can be emptied no matter how many people are in them. A point is awarded for each rescue. The alarm on is indicated by a bucket of water on the cliffside, and when it goes off, a man uses the bucket to attempt to douse the fire.
Game A mode controls two rafts, one on each side of the screen, which move together when the left and right buttons are pressed. In Game B there is only one raft, which can move from one side of the screen to the other.
Lifeboat was recreated in Game & Watch Gallery 4 for Game Boy Advance.
