Game and Watch Uprising is a 2014 party game created by Unversed Entertainment for the Wii U. The villainous Blot takes over the Flat Zone Festival, and only Mr. Game and Watch can stop him by collecting enough Uprising Sprites by playing Minigames in all areas of Flat Zone.
The game is split into three modes, Uprising, Classics, and Party. Uprising is a single-player only mode, where players must collect Uprising Sprites by completing minigames. When enough are collected, a Boss Minigame can be completed, and the player can get a Blot Key. When all 7 Blot Keys are collected, the player can go to Castle Blot. In Uprising, when not playing minigames, the game is a 2D platformer. Completing minigames also earns Classic Tickets, the game's form of currency, and if they are done well enough, Blot Stars. When all Blot Stars are unlocked, the optional bonus world, Flat Zone 2 can be unlocked.
In Party, any minigame played so far in Uprising can be played with others to earn Blot Stars or Classic Tickets, besides the single-player only Boss Minigames. In Classic, players can use the Classic Tickets they've collected so far to buy a port of a classic Game and Watch game. All of the games besides the licensed ones can be played.
The citizens of Flat Zone are preparing the Flat Zone Festival when the evil monster Blot takes over and turns it into his own castle of darkness, and plans to cover all of Flat Zone in black.

Blot is defeated and the Flat Zone Festival goes on as planned!
