Escape Artist is one of Jimmy T's microgames in WarioWare: Move It!.


The player must help mice escape from a cat. The mice are tied up to Form Stones however, and can be moved by simply lifting up the correct Joy-Con. If the cat is looking at a mouse when the player lifts the Joy-Con, the cat will grab the mouse and will result in a loss. The player must save the mice when the cat is not looking at them to win the microgame. In levels 1 and 2, one Form Stone has a bell that can be used to distract the cat.

  • Level 1: The player must save one mouse, while the other Form Stone has a bell. The cat looks from side to side.
  • Level 2: The player must save one mouse, but the cat never looks away from the mouse. The player must distract the cat with the bell to save the mouse.
  • Level 3: The player must save two mice. The cat looks from side to side.
