Button Masher is a microgame found in the Retro Action stage in WarioWare: Touched! It is very similar to the microgame Famicom.

This microgame can be seen on the reverse box art.


The objective of the game is to mash A Button of the NES controller (Famicom controller in the Japanese version) to clear the game on screen. None of the games represent an actual NES title, but they are all inspired by games of the 8-bit era.
