WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Microgame$! is the gripping tale of Wario and his friends forming their own game company. The result is a bizarre collection of very short (and often very strange) minigames called "Microgames", with a few "Wario" takes on other classic games thrown in for good measure.

Unused Games

Amusingly, Wario and friends had some leftovers, given that this was their first game both in the series and in canon. With a cheating device or a cheat option in an emulator, change address 03000E61 to one of the following game numbers.

Block Breaker

WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame1.png

Game Number: 2F
A microgame where only two blocks can be broken before time expires. The paddle gets smaller with each level. This was likely meant for 9-Volt's stage, as it is based on the early Nintendo arcade game Block Breaker.

F1 Race

WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame2a.png

Game Number: 5E
A microgame with all three level variations where the stats at the top of the screen never change. This was also likely meant for 9-Volt's stage as it is based on F1 Race, an early Famicom game.

Level 1 is merely a straight course.

WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame2b.png

Level 2 begins with a straight path, but curves halfway through.

WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame2c.png

Level 3 starts on a curve, and becomes straight near the end.


WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame3a.png

Game Number: 66
A microgame with all three level variations. This was also likely meant for 9-Volt's stage, as it appears to be based on Nintendo's late-1970s "Color TV Game 6/15" home console.

WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame3b.png

Level 2 has smaller paddles.

WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame3c.png

Level 3 has a pair of parallel paddles for each side.

Ping-Pong VS

WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame4a.png

Game Number: E5
A game presumably meant to be unlocked with the other VS titles.

WarioWare Inc-UnusedGame4b.png

First to five points wins. Like the other VS games, L and R move the paddles up and down for their respective sides.

Unused Levels

Good luck with that.

Dodge Balls retains the higher level capabilities present in the demo from Wario World. While in the demo there are only six levels, in the final game there are nine levels altogether, and on the highest level there are ten balls for you to dodge.

Unused Graphics

The menu graphics contain an unused smaller and darker thumbnail for Jimmy T and a white cell phone folder.

WarioWare Inc-IntroGrid.png

This is loaded into the VRAM of the Introduction grid in place of the microgames it does not have due to being smaller than other grids. Most likely used as a placeholder.

Music track of unknown purpose.
The title music played at normal speed. The title screen does not last long enough to reach the loop, so part of this track cannot be heard normally.

Tune for retrying from between the second and third bosses of Dribble.
