Balance the Scales is one of the microgames in Orbulon's Culture level in WarioWare: Get It Together!

Gameplay[edit]

The object of this microgame is to balance the scales so they are the exact same weight. The scales must be balanced before time runs out (12 beats). The cracked rocks can be broken, while the solid ones are unbreakable.

  • Level 1: There is only one solid rock.
  • Level 2: There are more solid rocks, including a bigger rock weighing twice as much.
  • Level 3: There are even more solid rocks, and some rocks are initially not on the scale.

If two players are utilized for this microgame, the player that breaks more units of weight receives an effort point upon success. If both players each break the same amount of weight, no effort points are awarded.
