Bird & Beans, known as Pyoro in European languages, is a DSiWare game for the Nintendo DSi, and is a remake of the minigames "Pyoro" and "Pyoro 2" from WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!. It was released in Japan on December 24, 2008, in Australia on April 2, in Europe on April 3, 2009, in North America on April 5, 2009, and in China on December 15, 2009, as a launch title for the price of 200 Nintendo Points. The game stars the bird Pyoro who either has to eat or shoot as many falling vegetables as possible in order to score points and to prevent himself from being hit by the vegetables.

The player can choose between both minigames which are nearly identical to the original ones. The main difference is that the playing area is bigger than it was in the original. Pyoro 2 is referred to as Bird & Beans 2 in the North American version and Tori to Mame 2 in the Japanese version.


Main article: Pyoro (minigame)

The gameplay of Bird & Beans is very similar from the original Pyoro. The default high score for Bird & Beans is 10000 points. If the player is able to obtain this much and last for as long as they can, Bird & Beans 2 will be added to the empty square in the main menu.

Gameplay differences[edit]

Most of the new changes are due to the DSi's larger screen resolution compared to the Game Boy Advance.

  • The number of bricks have increased from 20 to 30. In other words, the playfield has increased from 160 pixels to 240 pixels.
    • Unlike the original Pyoro and Pyoro 2 minigames, the width of the bricks and the border cover the whole width of the DSi screen.
  • The height of the playfield has increased from 144 pixels to 176 pixels.
  • There are 2 new point bonuses where new sprites can appear in the background.
  • The maximum number of beans that can spawn has increased from 16 to 20
  • Since the Nintendo DSi has two screens, the user can choose if the gameplay is displayed on the top or bottom screen. The other screen will then be mostly blank, save for a sprite of a monochrome Pyoro that moves from time to time.

List of new point bonuses[edit]

All of the point bonuses in WarioWare Inc.: Mega Microgame$! are present, with 2 new background elements added for both Bird & Beans and Bird & Beans 2 to fill the space introduced by the larger background:

Bird & Beans Background Bird & Beans 2 Background Points Effect
The background to Bird & Beans at 11000 points The background to Bird & Beans 2 at 11000 points 11,000 A planet with a ring (Bird & Beans) or with two rings (Bird & Beans) appears.
The background to Bird & Beans at 12000 points The background to Bird & Beans 2 at 12000 points 12,000 A city on a floating hemisphere platform in the sky appears.

DSi Shop description[edit]

American English version[edit]

In Bird & Beans, control Pyoro, a small bird with an elastic tongue and an insatiable appetite for beans. Scramble to catch beans that fall from the sky, racking up points as you go. The farther away the bean, the more points it's worth. Beware any beans that are missed, though—they will leave a hole in the ground that can't be crossed, potentially trapping Pyoro. Bird & Beans also features a second version that enables Pyoro to spit seeds at high speed, bringing down more beans than ever before. This fun and fast-paced game requires skill and strategy to master and always leaves you wanting to play just one more time...

British English version[edit]

He’s a small bird with a very long tongue and an insatiable appetite for beans. Luckily for Pyoro, beans drop constantly from the sky. However, if Pyoro lets a bean fall, it breaks a hole in the ground that he can’t cross. This fast-paced action game requires skill and strategy to snatch all the beans you can, while dodging the ones you can’t and making sure you don't get trapped! The higher in the sky that you grab a bean, the more points it will be worth. Plus – if you master Pyoro, you can unlock the even faster-paced Pyoro 2! In this game, you can spit seeds at high speed to bring down more beans than ever before! Please note that elements of this software may have been featured in previously-released software.
