GOING FOR GOLD

“I'm going to be filthy rich!"

Wario’s problems don’t end here though – he’s also stolen a rather heavy piece of golden treasure, and someone’s after him to get it back!

MASH, TWIST, TOUCH, AND BLOW!

In Story mode, you’ll have to shoulder-barge your way through Mash, Twist, and Touch Leagues, each one filled with microgames created by returning characters from the WarioWare world. What’s more, each character has their own problem-filled backstory, so there’s more motivation than ever to help them out – if Wario being a jerk isn’t enough, that is! Help Mona prepare for her party, Dr. Crygor run from a mop-wielding robot, and even 9-Volt overcome his fear of maths class!

Of course, there are also brand new microgames, keeping players of all experiences on their tippy-toes. There’s never been a greater selection of microgames all in one place!

7 / 10.0

Like the gaming equivalent of binge-watching a playlist of the funniest Vine videos, WarioWare Gold provides some enjoyable short attention span shenanigans, particularly for newcomers. But in the absence any substantial new additions and a paucity of worthwhile extras, WarioWare Gold is more like a runner-up silver for long term fans of the series.

It's a shame this is a greatest hits compilation and not a sequel but seeing the full madness of the series in one game is a wonderful journey of imagination and surreal humour.

From its start 15 years ago, WarioWare has always been an exciting showcase of Nintendo's creative ingenuity delivered in seconds-long chunks. Gold continues this bizarre tradition while paying homage to the original games
