Needy Needles is one of Dr. Crygor, Penny, and Mike's microgames in WarioWare: Move It!.


The object of the microgame is to catch every object by tilting a cactus and coming into contact with them. If one of the objects touches the ground, the cactus falls forward, and the microgame is lost.

  • Level 1: Two bikers toss objects from the front. The objects may be paper airplanes, handsets, or mittens.
  • Level 2: Two eagles drop objects from straight above. The objects may be berets, suitcases, or books.
  • Level 3: A mix of three bikers or eagles send objects. The objects may be roses, bows, or eggs.

In multiplayer, there are two cacti side-by-side, with an area in the middle that both cacti can reach. If both cacti come into contact, they bounce off each other. The number of objects to catch in each level increases to three, four, and five, respectively.
