  • Summary: (Also known as "Sawaru Made in Wario" in Japan) Wario makes his mad debut on the Nintendo DS with 180 all-new, factory-fresh microgames! What really makes this game rock is the DS's touch control. Touch the latest fruits from the bizarro developers of WarioWare Inc. Expect to make lots of spins and whirlpools to win Dr. Crygor's Slightly Unscrewed microgames. Kickin' kindergartners Kat and Anna return with a dojo's worth of Ninja Scribble microgames. Scooter girl Mona has made a career move from the gelateria to the pizza delivery business, but she's also found time to become a pop diva and, of course, develop a whole new set of extremely cuuute microgames.

  1. Being too uncoordinated to dare attempt one of those arcade dancing machines, it's the first game we've played that has actually made us feel light-headed. It's also exactly what DS needed after the disappointing absence of a genuine must-have title among the US launch releases. Virtually perfect. [NGC]
  2. While the game is extremely simplistic and little more than a collection of many minigames, the action is fast-paced and addicting and should provide hours of mindless entertainment.
  3. With the DS's unique capabilities as the star attraction put into a single package with significant gameplay time and replayability, this is one game that should be in everybody's collection.

    A great idea that underachieved.

    But my biggest problem with the game is really just the slight lack of craziness that I've come to expect from Wario Ware. I rarely laugh out loud at a game, but the original Wario Ware provided me with much humour with its general wackiness.
  6. As much as this reviewer likes WarioWare: Touched!, it’s not worth the purchase price of a DS.
  7. For a system that prides itself on interactivity, WarioWare: Touched! is a notable complement. It's a shallow, inconsistent experience, though, and one I suspect will wear on you after a while.

    Wario Ware Touched is one of the best in its series. I would recommend this game to everyone. This game looks like it took a long time to develop and was developed well. Expand

    It looks and plays out good and nice at first glance, but if you squint and look closer, it's so short and simple the game's not even worth 6 bucks.
