DescriptionTired of chasing after rival Mario and counting his millions again, Wario has put his spare time to good use to create his own video game, WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!.
Simply put, WarioWare has you testing your skills in a huge collection of games from almost every genre you can think of. Each game lasts only a matter of seconds, but within that time you have to complete the task. This ranges from hitting a home run, stomping a handful of bad guys, winning a boxing match, solving a puzzle and winning the points.
You'll witness a wide selection of game graphics as well. Games originate from the original Nintendo Game & Watch series, to the green tinted Game Boy titles and the modern day Game Boy Advance style. You'll also notice some well known names, including Metroid, Duck Hunt, the Mario Bros. series and much more hidden away between each mini game.

1001 Video GamesThe Game Boy Advance version of WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames! appears in the book 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die by General Editor Tony Mott.
LaptopFor historical reference: Wario's laptop is apparently a Sony VAIO notebook, with Wario's own style added to it, and its logo (on game's title screen) says "WARIO" in imitation of VAIO's logo.The operating system is apparently Microsoft Windows XP - though, likewise, it's obviously not exactly a stock OEM version.
Version differencesIn the original Japanese version, in one of the microgames where you try to catch the fruit, the item that wasn't fruit was...poo. This has been censored out of the U.S. version. Interestingly enough, at the end of "Wario's Adventure" the treasure is still poo. Interesting!
