Slap Jack! is one of Kat & Ana's microgames in WarioWare: Twisted!. It is based on the fairy tale, "Jack and the Beanstalk". The name of the microgame is a pun on the card game "slapjack". In the Japanese version, this microgame is instead based on the Chinese novel Journey to the West, specifically the ending of the first act, in which Buddha defeats the unruly Sun Wukong by giving him the impossible challenge of escaping his omnipresence.


The player controls a giant's hand. The game's purpose is to make him slap Jack who passes by the vine. If done so, the game is won. However, if he misses, the player will lose.

The gameplay remains the same in the Japanese version, but it involves Buddha slapping Sun Wukong off the clouds. The music is also different.

  • 1st level difficulty: There is one Jack or Sun Wukong.
  • 2nd level difficulty: There are two Jacks or Sun Wukong.
  • 3rd level difficulty: Same as Level 1, but Jack or Sun Wukong may jump forward or backward once he gets close to the giant or Buddha's hand.
