The plot of the book consists of Wario retelling the story of how he raided the Golden Pyramid and recovered the ancient treasure while saving the legendary Princess Shokora. At the end of each page, there are multiple choices pertaining to what will happen next, and each choice is accompanied by a recommended page number. Every choice the reader makes will affect the storyline and the ending. The goal is to read through to the "real ending" and escape the pyramid with the treasure and the princess.

Sales of the book were quite poor, and it was criticized about how it "is a waste of good paper" and "it does nothing to keep the reader's attention".
