Close Call is one of Jimmy T's microgames in WarioWare Gold.


The player must pay attention to which side of the bound stripe on the tennis court the object landed. Afterwards, they must use +Control Pad left or right to make their guess.

  • 1st level difficulty: The object is a tennis ball. It lands a fair distance from the line, making it easy to tell.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The object is a banana. It lands near the line, making it harder to tell.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The object is a five-pointed star. It lands very close to the line, making it very hard to tell.
