Some of you guys know that I've been collecting Game & Watch, I eventually ended up with one that was beyond saving so here's how it turned out:

As far as I can tell, this is the first Game & Watch ever to run Doom (sort of).
I'm calling it the Gawp (Game and Watch Pi).
It uses the original case, buttons, stand, face plate, and a couple of screws.
Inside there's a Pi 0W, 1100mAh LiPo, dac, amp, stereo speakers, LiPo charger, and 2.4" ili screen.
It's fully playable, with a 5-way stick hidden inside the left button and shoulder buttons on the top.

Here's the PCB:

I used a 3D printed spacer to allow enough room for a decent battery and reduce the amount of cutting into the case, it's 7mm thicker:

It's not quite finished, I need to file down some screws to make the Start + Select buttons (original parts wouldn't work well enough) and I'm hoping Helder will laser etch the face plate with this to make it look amazing:
