Balancing Act is one of Mona's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! and returns in WarioWare Gold as one of Penny's microgames.


The game's objective is to balance an object being held up by a person's finger until the time runs out. If the player drops the object, the game ends in a loss as the hand sticks all of its fingers out. Arrows are shown to indicate what to do.

WarioWare: Twisted![edit]

  • 1st level difficulty: A blue umbrella needs to be balanced. It loses balance slowly.
  • 2nd level difficulty: A red boomerang needs to be balanced. It loses balance faster and its bend makes it confusing to balance.
  • 3rd level difficulty: A green pencil needs to be balanced. It loses balance even faster and is shorter than the items from the previous 2 levels.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

  • 1st level difficulty: A broom or a ruler needs to be balanced. They lose balance slowly. If they fall, a "thump" sound is heard.
  • 2nd level difficulty: A lamp or an electric guitar needs to be balanced. They lose balance quicker. If they fall, a crashing sound is heard.
  • 3rd level difficulty: A construction truck or an airplane needs to be balanced. They lose balance even quicker. If they fall, a loud crashing sound is heard.
