Xbox Live Indie Games developer Niño 1 Oso 0 has launched Ajare & Watch, an action-adventure title presented in the style of Nintendo's classic Game & Watch line of LCD handheld games.

Ajare & Watch plays out like an adventure game with RPG elements; you'll travel through multiple screens collecting items, talking to NPCs, and avoiding hazards that drain your hit points. During your quest, you'll also encounter brief challenges that resemble Game & Watch games, adding an element of skill between screens.

While the concept is solid, it's a shame that the English translation is so poor -- the gaming reference-laden humor often falls flat as a result. Still, if you're a fan of LCD games, this is certainly worth checking out!

Ajare & Watch is priced at 80 Microsoft points ($1).
