“Me? I'm the reknowned[sic] Dr. Crygor and the games I've invented are indeed thrilling. You must clear the game your[sic] presented with before the balloon explodes. You must focus!”
Dr. Crygor, WarioWare, Inc. Mega Party Game$

Balloon Bang is Dr. Crygor's multiplayer mode in WarioWare, Inc. Mega Party Game$. It involves, as the name implies, trying to blow up a huge balloon. The players take it in turns to play a microgame, while the other player or players inflate the red balloon attached to the TV screen with A Button. The loser is the one who is playing when the balloon explodes, sending them to the moon.

In-game description[edit]

I am Crygor. Yes, Doctor Crygor, genius without parallel.

The game I have invented is an intensely innovative game that makes use of a balloon in ways unseen by lesser minds such as yours! I have attached a balloon to the top of the television. But this is no normal balloon! You see, it slowly inflates while the TV is on.

The players of my game must take turns playing the microgames. If a player beats a microgame, that player goes to the end of the line, and the next player takes his turn. All players must continue playing microgames until they finally beat one.

The other players may tap their A Buttons when they are not playing to inflate the balloon even more quickly. Clever, no?

Now for the genius of it all: whoever is still playing when the balloon bursts LOSES the entire game! Pure brilliance! I wish you all the very best of luck.
