Balancing Act is a microgame in WarioWare: Twisted!. It is found in Mona's stage. It 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 hand will stick all of its fingers out, signaling that they've lost.

  • Level 1: A blue umbrella needs to be balanced. Arrows are shown to indicate what to do. In WarioWare Gold, small objects must be balanced.
  • Level 2: A red boomerang needs to be balanced. Balancing it is confusing because of the bend. In WarioWare Gold, medium objects must be balanced.
  • Level 3: A green pencil needs to be balanced. It is shorter and loses balance more quickly. In WarioWare Gold, big objects must be balanced.
