About the game

In WarioWare the objective is to complete a number of 5-second minigames. There are 11 stages in this game with each its own genre. The whole game is played by only using the "left" and "right" arrow keys and the A-button.

About the run

All the previously completed runs mostly aimed for fastest time and as a result often missed out on entertainment. This game never really fit for a speedrun, especially due to the long cutscenes. Now in this game you can skip all the cutscenes and loading screens by simply using reset (A+B+Start+Select). Ryuto138 made a run using this trick and saved more than 20 minutes. But his run wasn't always pleasant to look at as sometimes he didn't do anything in some minigames or he completed them too fast to see what was going on. So I decided to make a new run, aiming for maximum entertainment without losing time and this is the result.

  • Uses a game restart sequence (31 times, I think)
  • Aims for fastest time (Though I used time to enter a name at the beginning of the movie)
  • Manipulates luck (In two places in the movie I pause the game to get a better outcome)

Used Emulator: 1.7.2 re-recording v21-interim

Closing words

Thanks to Ryuto138 for his TAS

Have fun.
