Code Dependency is one of Kat & Ana's microgames in WarioWare: Smooth Moves. It returns in WarioWare Gold as one of Penny's microgames.


The player should rotate the Wii Remote so that the object's bar code is facing down with the scanner. As the levels progress, the item becomes more expensive. In Smooth Moves, a price number will appear if the player wins the microgame (such as 0.99). In Smooth Moves, the cashier is an old man, while in Gold, the cashier is a computer, which becomes mad if the player does not scan the item.

WarioWare: Smooth Moves[edit]

  • 1st level difficulty: The player scans a simple object.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The player scans a more complex object.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The player scans an awkwardly-shaped object.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

  • 1st level difficulty: The object is simple.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The object either has fake bar codes or has a pattern similar to the bar code.
  • 3rd level difficulty: Same as level 1, except that the player has two objects to scan.
