WarioWare: Do It Yourself

System: Nintendo DS Release date: 2012

He’s a crazy guy with a moustache – but nobody can deny that Wario has provided us with some monster microgame madness over the years. Now he’s back with WarioWare D.I.Y. - the latest in the Wario series of wacky off-the-wall microgame collections, but this time with a tempting twist – now you can create your very own microgames! That’ll be the reason for the D.I.Y. part of the name then…

There are over 90 brand new microgames where fast reflexes are fundamental and an eye for the ridiculous essential. Try to outwit the makers of some of the most furious fast-reflex action around – stomp cans, squeeze toothpaste and, err…pick someone’s nose – it’s all here waiting to try and catch you out.

So far, so WarioWare. The truly stand-out part of this game, however, is the chance to get stuck in and get creative at the WarioWare D.I.Y. Studio. Ever wanted to try your hand at developing games or thought you could come up with a funnier idea than the Wario team? Well, now’s your chance to prove you’re as good as any moustached maniac! The game teaches you everything you need to know to make your very own loony levels and even provides easy-to-use tools with which to unleash your warped and twisted ideas…

The possibilities are endless – but the basics are easy to pick up. You’ll need a background, some objects and a music soundtrack with sound effects. The game features fully interactive tutorials that teach you step-by-step how to turn your ideas into reality and, really, there’s no limit to what you can create if you use your imagination. If you want to take a break from the demanding job of Lead Game Designer, you can get deeper into graphics and music by creating your very own comic strips or orchestrating multi-track music with a whole range of quirky instruments and sounds, also in the D.I.Y. Studio.

Of course, it wouldn’t be much fun if you were the only person to see the fruits of your hard labour. So it’s just as well there are multiple ways to spread your creative genius around. You can share your microgames with friends and family simply by using local wireless connections to transfer them to another Nintendo DS system; alternatively you can share them via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection after you’ve swapped Friend Codes with other players. Using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection you can also download further microgames released weekly by Nintendo. You can even submit microgames into monthly themed competitions! The winning games will also be available to download via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, providing access to a continuous stream of crazy new material.

You can even add another dimension to your game by downloading the WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase game from WiiWare onto your Wii console. This will allow you access to another 70+ original microgames and also let you watch your Nintendo DS creations on the big screen by uploading them to Wii! There are so many options you’re going to be kept busy for months on end – so come on and unleash your imagination in WarioWare D.I.Y.!

  • Take on the role of game designer and create your own microgames
  • Enjoy over 90 pre-made games and download many more using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection
  • Share your microgame creations with friends and family via local wireless connections
  • Use the WiiWare game WarioWare D.I.Y Showcase to get extra microgames and upload your Nintendo DS creations to the big screen
