How would one create movement with sprites that emulates the Game & Watch movement style?

Am I right that you don't have experience in programming? No offence, everybody has to start somewhere :)
I recommend you to read my BASIC tutorial to get some basic understanding: https://lowresnx.inutilis.com/topic.php?id=306
With this and the "Getting Started" chapter of the manual, you should be ready to do some experiments.
Game & Watch style games are not very difficult, I think, but you need some programming knowledge.

The game and watch didn't even have sprites, did it? I'd figure you could just cycle through a list of screen positions and characters. Then you could go through and draw each animation frame in sequence.

Game and watch games were made on a device that had liquid crystal display... so no real animation... just crystal shapes preplaced, and only allowing on turned on at a time to simulate movement..
You can accomplish this by placing sprites in place, and loading a real image in only one, while the other ones are loaded with blank images...

Keep your eye on this one... i will finish it into a full game soon :)
