Product Details:

Through the years, Nintendo has created hundreds of microgames for the WarioWare series. Now we want to see what you've got. The WarioWare D.I.Y. game lets players create the same kind of microgames that are the hallmark of the WarioWare series. Players design every aspect of their creations, including graphics, animation, music and rules.

  • Do It Yourself! Take on the role of game designer and create your own microgames by crafting everything from artwork, animations, music and action instructions.
  • WarioWare D.I.Y. comes with more than 90 pre-made games to play, but players who have access to a broadband Internet connection can wirelessly download a virtually endless supply of user-generated games, or upload their own creations to share with the world.
  • When creating games, players can utilize a library of pre-made graphics and sound samples, borrow elements from other microgames on their system, or start from scratch.
  • Sharing new content is the real key to WarioWare: D.I.Y., and there are a number of ways for players to participate:
  • Using a local wireless connection, friends can swap micro-games, comics and music they have created.
  • After the game launches, Nintendo will regularly make new micro-games available for download to players who have access to a broadband Internet connection.
  • From time to time, Nintendo will challenge WarioWare: D.I.Y. players to create games based on a specific theme. Nintendo will make the best submissions available for download to players with a wireless broadband Internet connection.
  • Players can upload items to their Storage Crate in the Warehouse (wireless broadband Internet access required). These products can then be downloaded by any of the friends with whom they have exchanged friend codes.
  • If you want to take a break from creating and playing games, why not try your hand at a comic strip? WarioWare: D.I.Y. includes all the tools artists need to compose their own four-panel comic strips.
  • Players who have a Wii console can add another dimension to their game. By downloading the WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase game from Nintendo's WiiWare service, players get access to 72 more micro-games, and can experience the games they created with their Nintendo DS system on their TV. Each of the elements in these new games then becomes a part of the player's toolbox. The WiiWare game also includes an unlockable multiplayer mode that lets up to four people play micro-games competitively (additional accessories required and are sold separately).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Game Development for Early Users This game was perfect for when it first came out. At the time, I had always wanted to make video games, and this had what I wanted. The game has so many mini-games that you can play, but also offers you the option to make your own. I started to mess with the system and ultimately made a few decent mini games. I would recommend this to anyone who likes to make simple games. Though the servers are no longer available to post your games on, you can still enjoy the many it is preloaded with. As for me, I still have the tons I downloaded. Also having the Wii ware that goes along with this game is great, definitely adds a factor where you can play along with friends and upload your created games onto.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST GAME FOR CREATIVE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!! i have wanted to buy this game for 3 months and i could never earn a cent. i tried to buy it once with my money but i thought the nicest thing to do was give it to st. judes and unicef... but anyway i got it for christmas after 3 months of begging my parents and i cant put it down until its dead! you can make records with twenty four sections of 2 lines. you can make black and white, 4 page comics. and you can make full fledged microgames! this is a great gift for someone who has a creative mind and a lot of talent!!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I need help and I'm 13!!!!!! Ok, I like the concept, but this game is impossible! You are supposed to be able to make your own games, but after 4 hours of tutorials, I was still left in the cold...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make Your Own Games! This is a fun game. You can make your own games and you can download them online from somewhat famous people. Making your own games is fun and addicting and Wario Ware is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best game EVER! This game was pretty awesome, especially how you are able to create your own microgames add to the fun! Plus, you get the hang of it after the first few lessons, then your career takes of as a micro-game maker! It's pretty awesome being able to build up the fun and even making your own micro-games trick you! You can create comics as well, so it adds to the fun even more, and with wifi, you can enter contests and stuff, it's an awesome game, and there's so much to do!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One Of The Best Games For DS Since I Go To WarioMania! Every Year I Walked Into GameStop One Day To Chat With Other Wario Fans And To Buy Kingdom Hearts ( Which Is A Great Ps2 Game) Must Buy It (Which I Have That Game Now) But Then I Noticed A Cluster Of Wario Fans Surrounding Something, I Finally Got To The Thingf And It Was This New WarioWare Game, I Knew That I Must Buy It. I Loved It And I Still Play It, I Like WarioWare Because Of Its Insanity, If You Like That Too. Buy Katamari Damacy And We <3 Katamari For The Ps2 And WarioWare Smooth Moves For Wii.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Unnecessary TUTORIALS! HOLY COW! alright so this game is great, the concept of building your own minigames is awesome. Almost everything is customizable, and it makes the game really fun. EXCEPT, the extremely long, completely obvious tutorials they make you go through before you can just free-build games. It took me hours just to get through the tutorials and the how-to's and by the time i could finally play i was bored and wanted to play pokemon. Once the tutorials and stuff are completed though, the game is great. The minigames are super basic, but the creation of your own music, creatures, backgrounds, scripts and more make it really fun!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot of Effort Some games just have no effort involved, you mindlessly whiz by everything and soon, you beat the game. I'm warning you now that this is not one of these games. It seems fun by the ads above, but it's a lot of work just to do one little minigame that lasts like 5 seconds. I reccomend it to people who are looking at career options in this field, but it's definitely not a good game for people with little patience or people who prefer role playing games. It's a decent game, but it just takes too much time and the trigger bit is a bit confusing! I wish that I hadn't bought this game because it's hard to complete everything because you literally start from scratch and face it, not everyone is a fantastic artist so some of your drawings end up looking a little kindergartenish. Note: It probably takes around an hour to make one mini game
