Tilt the Scale is one of Ashley and Red's microgames in WarioWare: Move It!.


The player controls a man holding two platforms with objects on them, acting as a set of scales. The player must lower the side with more objects, and thus, the side that is heavier. If the player picks the correct side, the man flails the platforms around wildly as the screen lights up. If the player picks the incorrect side, the background turns monochrome as the platforms stay put, and the game is lost.

  • Level 1: The player controls a skinny man at a burger joint weighing large burgers, with the correct side having at least two more. When the correct side is picked, a cloud appears in the sky.
  • Level 2: The player controls a muscular man at an orchard weighing apples, with the correct side having one more. When the correct side is picked, the trees bloom with apples.
  • Level 3: The player controls an extremely muscular man at a farm weighing cows and chickens, which move around and make it harder for the player to count them. When the correct side is picked, the sun rises as a man yodels.
