Count 'Em Up is a downloadable microgame in WarioWare: D.I.Y. and WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase, which was released on July 29, 2009 in Japan, June 28, 2010 in North America, and July 30, 2010 in Europe. The name of this microgame is a pun of the video game genre, the shoot 'em up. It returns in WarioWare Gold as one of Young Cricket & Master Mantis's microgames.


At the start, there are three men on the ground, and above them, a sign that says 'Push-Up Contest'. Then, they will randomly start doing push-ups. One will do one push-up, one will do two and one will do three - which man does how many is randomly chosen. Every time one of them goes down to the ground and back up is a push-up. At the end of the push-ups, arrows appear above each of the men, asking "Who did the most?"

If the player taps the arrow of the man who did the most push-ups, the game will be won. A three and a crown will appear above the winner, then a two above the person in second place and a one above the person in last place. Plus, the winner will start doing lots of push-ups. If the player taps the arrow of the man who did one or two push-ups, the man who was chosen will fall to the ground and the game will be lost, without the placement numbers and crown appearing.

WarioWare Gold[edit]

  • 1st level difficulty: The player has to identify who performed 3 sit-ups. The participants never fake out the player.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The player has to identify who performed 3 push-ups, as in the original microgame. Sometimes the participants will do a "mini push-up" to fake out the player.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The player has to identify who performed 4 skips with the jump rope. Sometimes the participants will stutter to fake out the player.
