Hello, TASVideos userfile explorer! This is Game & Watch Gallery for the Game Boy. I created a bot to play 6 out of the 8 total games required for 100% completion: Fire Modern and Classic, Manhole Modern and Classic, and Oil Panic Modern and Classic.
Octopus Modern and Classic posed a few more issues because it requires more navigation strategy around tentacle movements, so I haven't quite gotten around to botting it. But maybe soon!
This movie isn't entirely optimized: there's significantly more RNG manipulation, subtle strategies, as well as a few more blatant strategies. For instance, in Manhole Modern, the bot doesn't allow the manhole covers to fall as early as they could to end the game after 1000 points, because it would require more complex logic. But hopefully this provides a good baseline for an eventual publication.
(And yes, you have to intentionally lose to gain a high score in each subgame, unlike later games in the series where you can quit and have the score save).
