Metroid Morph-Ball is one of 9-Volt's microgames from WarioWare: Twisted!. It returns in WarioWare Gold, known simply as Metroid, as one of 18-Volt's microgames.


The purpose of the game is to tilt the Game Boy Advance or Nintendo 3DS to get Samus to the Missile Tank. The game's graphics and sounds are based on the original Metroid for the Family Computer Disk System. In WarioWare Gold, Samus may appear in her Varia Suit leotard from the NES version instead of her usual Power Suit.

  • 1st level difficulty: The path is rather easy and has an enemy in there.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The path is difficult with platforms and blocks in the way.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The path is difficult and has lava.
