Crack Down is a microgame found in the Nature folder in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! It later appears in WarioWare Gold as part of Dribble and Spitz's set.


The objective of the game is to make the bird jump right before the man swings the mallet down to protect the egg.

  • 1st level difficulty: The man swings the mallet on the ground at an average speed. The mallet hits the ground at the 5th beat.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The man swings the mallet on the ground very quickly. The mallet hits the ground at the 4th beat.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The man fakes out a swing then swings the mallet on the ground. The mallet strikes the ground at the 6th beat.

Appearance in the Super Smash Bros. series[edit]

Crack Down in Super Smash Bros. Brawl

This microgame also appeared in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, in the WarioWare, Inc. stage. In the stage, players have to jump as the hammer swings down and hits the ground, otherwise he or she won't get a reward for completing the microgame. In addition to failing the microgame, the player will be stuck in the ground as if hit by a Pitfall.
