Turn off the alarm clock!

Turn off the alarm clock! is the first story of chapter one in the game Wario Land II. It takes place in several chambers of Wario Castle. Wario wakes up from the commotion a giant alarm clock produces, so he gets up and searches for said clock. While doing so he encounters Black Sugar Gang which patrol the corridors. Along the way Wario can break through certain walls finding many hidden rooms filled with coins, and the flat ability is also introduced here. The level ends when the giant alarm clock is found and Wario smashes into it to destroy it.
Hidden Treasure: Viking Helmet
The hidden treasure of this stage, the Viking Helmet, is located in the third-entered area of the castle. Once the player has broken the cupboard with the Pirate Goom inside, he can enter the chimney-like entrance behind it. The player will pass this area inevitably and doesn't need to take alternative paths to find it. This is probably to introduce the treasure-system of the game.
The player can find a secret exit in this level which leads him to an alternative version of chapter 2. In order to do so, the player must do absolutely nothing, so that Wario doesn't wake up at the beginning. After a few seconds has passed, the player will automatically win the level. The Black Sugar Gang returns and discovers Wario is still asleep, so they throw him out of the castle and claim it for themselves. Wario, now awake, has to take it back from them. When playing on a New Game file, this process takes roughly half a minute as opposed to just a few seconds, and the music of the stage plays during this time. This has led to the misconception that it is impossible for this secret exit to be reached on a New Game.
