Tortoise & Hare is a minigame in WarioWare: Smooth Moves, unlocked by beating Orbulon's The Secret of the Balance Stone stage. It is an extended version of the Hare Raising microgame. Its name is a reference to the fable The Tortoise and the Hare; despite this, a turtle is present in the minigame instead of a tortoise, and the description refers to the "hare" as a bunny.

Gameplay of Tortoise & Hare

The game is played using the Wii Remote and the Nunchuk to wave two flags: a red (blue in the Korean version) one and a white one. A hare in the back of stage asks the player to raise or lower a flag, saying things such as "Red! Up!" and "White! Down!". It can also trick the player with things like "Red! Not down!". After some time, a gray hare appears in the background and distractingly waves its flags randomly during the game.


Raise and lower the red and white flags. You've got to stay on your toes if you want to defeat that evil bunny! Play by connecting the Balance Stone.
