Petri Panic is a microgame found in the IQ folder in WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$!.


Several tiny creatures roam over the screen, with the target creature being brighter than the others. The objective of the game is to move the magnifying glass to the target and magnify it. When the lens is over the target but it is not yet in the image, an arrow will point at its direction.

  • 1st level difficulty: The microscopic life-form stays in one place.
  • 2nd level difficulty: The microscopic life-form moves down.
  • 3rd level difficulty: The microscopic life-form moves right rather quickly.
