Everybody should play such a thing at least once. A new WarioWare will release November 2023.
Just played through WarioWare Get It Together
for Switch and it's not bad, but WarioWare Gold on the 3DS was massively better. And not because the number of micro games is now smaller, as some people are saying. WWGIT has the twist that you visit a micro game as one of several characters with drastically different abilities (some can fly, one can teleport etc.) and it makes such a huge difference that it practically amounts to a much higher number of different micro games than what a direct count tells you. Another thing some people say is Gold was better because it had variety in controls like touch screen stuff and this one is only analog stick plus one button, but it seems just as many people found the constant change in controls in Gold annoying (though it had modes available limited to specific schemes).
What makes WWGIT the lesser entry compared to Gold by a significant margin are mainly two things:
1. The relatively low amount of bonus stuff and game modes
, especially in single player. You unlock a "Variety Pack" of ten games, six of which are multiplayer only for no particular reason.
2. The high randomness
even by WW standards which makes playing for score extremely frustrating. It shouldn't be a surprise that they did not tightly balance the difficulty of the several thousand possible combinations of this character
& that micro game
, but what is remarkable is the size of the discrepancy.
It would have been trivial to mitigate both problems.
Space-taxi guys can shoot in one direction sideways & fly around freely. Ninja girls can shoot in one direction sideways & constantly jump and can only be steered left and right. Take a guess who does worse on average (should have a charge-up ability for the shot to make up for that). 9-Volt zips around automatically and you can't make him change direction unless you hang on to something. Couldn't they have made it so that the stick modifies his movement just a little bit to make him bearable, jeez. Wouldn't even use him if he had a 1-up mushroom in his pocket. Penny has a cumbersome control concept made even worse because it uses button toggling
to hover in place instead of button holding
. (Oh and why doesn't any character know how to duck? Clumsy bunch.)
