Heartwrench is one of Dr. Crygor's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! The name is a pun on the term "heart-wrenching", meaning something that causes great distress.


In this microgame, the player controls a crane. The game's purpose is to use it to grab the heart. To do so, the player has to move it by twisting the Game Boy Advance until it is right above the heart, and press the A Button button to grab it. When the player wins, the crane's wings will flap. However, if the crane hits the ground, it will shatter and the player loses.

  • 1st level difficulty: The crane is long.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The crane is a bit shorter.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The crane is short.
