WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgames!
System Game Boy Advance
Developer Nintendo
Genre Minigames

Wario has decided he can make money in the videogame industry. He quickly bores of making the games himself, so he enlists his friends to come up with "microgames".

Progress through each character's set, playing microgames that last only a few seconds each. Quick reactions are needed, and the games get faster the more you play. There are over 200 microgames in total to be played in either the main game or the Grid, where you can aim for the high score in individual microgames.

There are several full games and challenges that can be unlocked as well.
