OverviewOverview

Games don’t get any sillier than the WarioWare series. Each of its mini-games presents a basic yet peculiar challenge for the player. A simple scene appears on the screen with a one-word clue about what to do. In the few seconds of the countdown you have to figure out what the task is then to press the appropriate button. From picking your nose or shaving a chin to stomping on enemy mushrooms or popping bubble wrap, you can play each crazy mini-challenge multiple times to get better at it.
