The WarioWare series stars Wario and his friends, and they make WarioWare Inc. money by making games. These, in the real world, are called microgames, and they last about 2-10 seconds, getting faster at a given interval. There are also boss games, which last about one minute. You have four tries, and defeating a boss can get you an extra try. You are at first given a command consisting of one or two words, a verb, and you have to execute it before the bomb, A.K.A timer, expodes or runs out.
