Screwed Tight is one of Kat & Ana's microgames in WarioWare: Move It! It shares its music with Code Dependency.


The player must twist the Joy-Con clockwise to tighten a screw or counter-clockwise to loosen the screw. If the player must turn two screws, they must return the screwdriver to its original position before turning the second screw. On the first two levels, if the player turns the screwdriver the wrong way and loosens the screws, the toy falls apart and they lose. In multiplayer, the task is the same for each level with different scenarios.

  • Level 1: The player(s) must tighten a screw to assemble a toy robot (two toy train cars in multiplayer). When it screws, the toy robot jumps and raises its arms. When it unscrews, it falls apart. For multiplayer, when it screws, the toy train zooms away.
  • Level 2: The player(s) must tighten two screws to assemble two toy train cars (put together pieces of bread in multiplayer). When it screws, the toy train zooms away. When it unscrews, its cars fall apart. For multiplayer, when it screws, the bread bounces. When it unscrews, its pieces fall apart.
  • Level 3: The player(s) must loosen two screws to open a chocolate-coated banana (remove a tortoise's shell in multiplayer). When it unscrews, the chocolate-coated banana dances. For multiplayer, when it unscrews, the tortoise without a shell walks away.
