Sawaru Meido in Wario
WarioWare: Touched! is the fourth game in the WarioWare series, released in 2004 for the Nintendo DS, and a launch title for the Japanese release. The game makes extensive use of the Nintendo DS's touch screen for gameplay.
You can't keep your hands off it!
At WarioWare, we've been working overtime to bring you over 180 factory-fresh, Touch Screen microgames! And with two screens, I'll make double the money!
TAP! RUB! SLICE!
The greediest, most ruthless CEO ever gets touchy-feely with the DS.
Wario makes his mad debut on the Nintendo DS with 180 all-new, factory-fresh microgames!
What really makes this game rock is the DS's touch control. Whether you're slicing veggies flying through the air or ripping the clothes off a sweltering beachgoer, the touch control makes playing Wario's blazingly fast microgames so simple, even a nintendo.com writer can figure 'em out.
Did we only say "touch"? Sorry, we forgot mic control. Yep, a karaoke-mad robot named Mike is on hand to get this party going with special mic-controlled games. For the absolutely first time in video-game history, you can blow sweet nothings into the ear of that someone special or cool off a cup of hot java.
The Usual Gang of Wing Nuts
Touch the latest fruits from the bizarro developers of WarioWare Inc. (GBA and Nintendo GameCube). Expect to make lots of spins and whirlpools to win Dr. Crygor's Slightly Unscrewed microgames. Kickin' kindergartners Kat and Anna return with a dojo's worth of Ninja Scribble microgames. Scooter girl Mona has made a career move from the gelateria to the pizza delivery business, but she's also found time to become a pop diva and, of course, develop a whole new set of extremely cuuute microgames.
That madcap taxi-driving duo, Dribble and Spitz, and way-out alien Orbulon return in wholly unpredictable supporting roles. Old-school grade-schooler 9-Volt is joined by his big brother, 18-Volt, to make five-second gems inspired by classic Nintendo games. This time, he's even gotten inspiration from Gold Digger, one of the classier offerings (not!) from WarioWare Inc. GBA.
Disco heartthrob Jimmy T. is back, along with his mom, dad, James ("Jimmy's chick-magnet brother"), Jamie ("Jimmy's disco-fabulous sis"). Remix masters James and Jamie each spins their favorite microgames.
New software developers this time are Ashley, a goth girl whose games are a "Total Drag," and Mike, the aforementioned party robot. Ashley's hilarious theme song is worth the price of admission by itself.
You can also feed a special something to Wario to create Wario-Man, who looks like one of those masked Mexican wrestlers. "Faster than a doughnut! Stronger than cardboard!" (we kid you not), Wario-Man's boss battle challenges you to plumb the depths of someone's nose for buried treasure.
Some of the many all-new microgames include:
- Shakedown Knock the fruits from the trees.
- Pet Petter Pet a dog or cat. Awww!
- Washed Up Make like a mom and scrub a kid's dirty face.
- Quite Puzzled Slide the panels to complete the picture.
- Got the Chops Slice the veggies, chop-chop!
- Crowd Control Hey, you're a superstar with no time for groupies. Blow 'em off!
- Fresh Squeezed Milk the cow.
- Pro Bowling You get three balls to knock down the pins, which may be in strange formations.
But there's even more bonus games! How about Orbit Ball, an insanely addictive game in which you jot down lines that morph into trampolines that a grinning ball bounces off of. Can you put Mr. Goof Ball into outer space? There's even a two-player table-tennis sim, in which one player swings a paddle by pressing the L Button and the other uses the R Button.
Easily one of the most inspired and unpredictable games on the GBA, WarioWare makes the leap to the DS in fine style. Touch the madness at a store near you now!

While walking through the city after having stolen a Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Advance SP, Wario trips and drops both into the sewer. A man then flies up out of the sewer and asks if Wario dropped either the Game Boys or a strange game system he has never seen before. Wario tries to take all of them, but ends up with the unknown system, which has two screens but no buttons. He tries to play it, but does not know how and is frustrated when he loses, but finds a stlus that emerges from the system. Figuring out how to use the device, Wario realizes that he can make money by developing touch-based microgames for the system.
