Yeah, pretty sure that there are only three of them.

Mario Cement Factory, Super Mario Bros and Donkey Kong JR.

Is this the Green Donkey Kong JR or the double screen Donkey Kong jr when Junior has to traverse the Vines? If its the Green version you couldn't pick me one up and Super Mario :D I own a boxed Double Screen DK Junior and Oil Panic which I assume is similar to Cement Factory..

What is the packaging like on these? Presumable they aren't Lidl branded? I recall Next branding these things as their own brand games a while back.

I think I have these three already but I would like to see the dual screen games that they did as these mini versions again.

Last years picture (a month and a week ago)

Some collector types debate if they where real or not, but most of them where THAT type of Nintendo fan, the ones you can smell a mile off

Scalpers didnt give a toss and sold them on for a high price

They are licensed by Nintendo. So not made by Nintendo, just released under the Nintendo name. If you get me.

Yeah, they are not massive but I think the picture makes them look smaller than they are.

If you still want me to see about picking them up for you then just let me know. We shop at Lidl anyway so I'll be heading in over the weekend.

They are £3.99 each.

Do they play good? Are the controls responsive? What's the best one?

That would be brilliant I just been to my local Aldi and I was talking to the guy there and he said "We had loads but people where buying basketfuls of them" He did have a look and found me a Super Mario in the reduced had it for £2.79 he even rung up the other branches but they where also sold out.. Another guy told me they had a few in Cardiff but he was one of the people who had cleared them out as they'd be worth loads in the future..

I'd be most grateful if you could pick me a set up if there's any left :D they do look a lot better in the flesh then in picture form.. Its the Green Donkey Kong I'm missing as Trev bought me a booked Nintendo DK2 a few years back for Christmas.. All the Game & Watches are crazy money on Ebay even those Lidl Donkey Kongs..

The big issue with these is that you can't mute them.
