WarioWare: Twisted!, known as Mawaru Made in Wario (まわるメイド イン ワリオ Mawaru Meido in Wario, lit. "Turning Made in Wario") in Japan, is the third game in the WarioWare series. It is one of only a few Game Boy Advance games to use a motion sensor, another being Yoshi Topsy-Turvy. It is also one of the only two Game Boy Advance games to use a Rumble Feature, the other being Drill Dozer. The gameplay often involves moving the Game Boy Advance rather than actually pressing the buttons. This can cause a wide variety of wacky mini-games, including ones where the player must make Wario move forward by twisting the Game Boy in the direction that he needs to go. Though it was announced for release there, the game was not released in Europe.


While Wario is playing Avoid-A-Roid on his Game Boy Advance, he loses and, in frustration, tosses the system around, heavily damaging it. He's immediately horrified when he sees the damage, but gets the idea to see if Dr. Crygor can fix it. At his lab, Dr. Crygor tosses the Game Boy Advance into his new invention, The Gravitator, which creates a bunch of new handheld systems with no buttons. He explains that the system is controlled through rotation, and Wario starts to play it. Soon, Mona and 9-Volt enter the lab and start to play with the systems, quickly enjoying it. This gives Wario the idea to market and sell the handheld system, with the dream of making tons of cash from it.

Wario is exercising in his house when he is tripped by a mouse. Angered, he chases after it with a broom and, in the process, knocks a giant watch up through his chimney. He catches the mouse, but the watch then lands on him, transporting him into the watch and giving it Wario's mustache. After a while, four small Warios exit the watch, and the mouse chases after them. The Warios are chased back into the watch and exit as one normal-sized Wario, and the angry Wario kicks the watch away. It bounces around and lands on the mouse, giving the watch mouse ears and a tail.

Dr. Crygor's Story:
While Dr. Crygor is working in his lab, he manages to complete a new invention he calls The Gravitator. He celebrates by performing a dance of sorts and activating it. The Gravitator, shaped like a washing machine, releases a bunch of bubbles into the room, capturing Dr. Crygor and a slew of other items. The machine also causes the room's gravity to be distorted. Soon, the bubbles pop, and Dr. Crygor, ecstatic, tosses more items into The Gravitator. A while after activating it, The Gravitator creates a giant mecha, which Dr. Crygor proceeds to fly around. He then crashes into Shuriken, destroying the entire mecha, but Shuriken picks him up to prevent him from falling.

Wario-Man's Story:

However, Wario is on the conveyor belt being used to transport objects, and he gets chucked into the Gravitator. He exits it as Wario-Man and feels an immense surge of power. He promptly jumps back into the Gravitator to gain more power, which launches him into space. The Gravitator transforms into a giant robot with Wario-Man as the pilot, and he waves excitedly to a passing Oinker piloted by Orbulon and carrying some of his friends. The Oinker detects Wario's robot as foreign, though, and blasts him back to Diamond City. He lands in the water outside Dr. Crygor's lab, and says that he's going to fire everyone working for him.

Jimmy's Folks Title.png Jimmy's Folks Mama T. and Papa T., Jimmy T.'s parents, host a collection of microgames from Mona, Jimmy T., and Kat and Ana. All of the microgames are at the second level of difficulty. Beating the boss microgame (which is always Mona's) unlocks Dribble and Spitz's stage.
WarioWatch Title.png WarioWatch WarioWatch includes its own collection of microgames, along with its own rules; the WarioWatch ticks down during microgames, and the normal timer only shows up after fourteen seconds have passed. Completing a microgame increases the time, while letting it reach zero means losing. Getting at least fifty points unlocks the WarioWatch 2 stage.

WWT Skyscraper.png Skyscraper Represented by a blue monkey, Skyskraper hosts a collection of microgames from everyone else, excluding WarioWatch and boss microgames. The microgames' speed gradually increase as they're completed, and it continues until all four lives are lost. Scoring at least twenty-five points unlocks the Tower stage.
WWT Tower.png Tower Represented by a red monkey, Tower uses the same set of rules from Skyscraper, except that the microgames start off much more quickly and they gradually continue to become faster until they reach the maximum speed. Getting at least twenty-five points will unlock the Mansion stage.
WWT Mansion.png Mansion Represented by a green monkey, Mansion uses the same set of rules from Skyscraper, except that only one life is available and the microgames start off on the highest difficulty. However, the speed never increases beyond the minimum.

European Release[edit]

In 2005, when the game was released in Australia and America, Nintendo announced the game for release in Europe. The company later announced that the game's release was delayed because it was still undergoing compulsory LGA testing to ensure its safety. Three years later, in 2008, the Game Boy Advance was discontinued. The page for WarioWare: Twisted! on the Nintendo of Europe Website had been removed as well. In the European version of Super Smash Bros. Brawl, when it is mentioned on the Chronicle, the game is marked as "Not Released", indicating the game was cancelled in Europe, possibly because the game failed its safety testing. Even the game possibly not passing the test, it received good reception.


  • The box art of the game shows Wario holding a Game Boy Advance SP, but in the game they never use an SP. Instead they use the original Game Boy Advance.
  • In the Guinness World Record 2010 Gamer's Edition, WarioWare: Twisted! was the game with the most minigames in a single video game. The game had 223 minigames all in one.
