Mario’s Bombs Away is a Game & Watch game released as a part of the Panorama series on November 13, 1983. It is a single-screen single-player Game & Watch. It features an unlit color LCD screen that faces downward in order to expose the translucent rear to an external light source, such as daylight. Hirokazu Tanaka composed the game music.
The player character is a military-clad Mario who delivers bombs from left to right, and must keep them away from flaming oil spills and enemy torches. Action is viewed in a mirror that reflects the screen.
Mario’s Bombs Away was recreated in Game & Watch Gallery 4 for Game Boy Advance.
