There is a ship the player controls at the bottom of the screen and several panels with letters on them at the top. Some of these panels are blinking and have a question mark on them. The player must move the ship under these and fire, flipping them over and completing the message. The messages can be anything, from the player's name to phrases like "Neato". There are twenty-five messages in all. In WarioWare Gold there is a special twenty-sixth phrase: if this microgame shows up right before the boss game the phrase will be "Boss!". In both versions, moving the ship left or right offscreen makes the ship reappear on the opposite side.
