Rock and a Hot Place is one of Fronk's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted! The game's name is based on the phrase "Between a rock and a hard place", meaning someone has to make a decision in which both of the outcomes are undesirable.


The player controls a Fronk. The game's purpose is to get him to the floaty that is on the water pool without falling into the lava or being hit by a falling rock. If done so, the game is won.

  • 1st level difficulty: There is one rock and one lava pool.
  • 2nd level difficulty: There are two rocks and two lava pools.
  • 3rd level difficulty: There are three rocks and three lava pools.
