High Hoops is one of the Microgames in the Sports folder in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!. It reappears in WarioWare Gold. Its name derives from the phrase "high hopes".


A man holding a basketball continuously jumps next to a basketball hoop. When the man is at the peak of his jump, the player must press the A Button / A Button button to throw the ball into the hoop. As the difficulty increases, the hoop gets higher, making it harder to hit.

  • 1st level difficulty: The hoop is a bit low.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The hoop is slightly high.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The hoop is considerably high.
