Wario has gotten into the business of designing games. With the help of his development crew at WarioWare, Inc., he has set out to make the greatest collection of games Diamond City has ever seen. Game & Wario features these fun and refreshingly unusual games that are played exclusively with the Wii U GamePad controller.
All of the single and multiplayer games in this title have been designed to make use of the Wii U’s unique gamepad controller in creative and potentially different ways from any other titles. Some of these games include:
Pirates: In this clever take on rhythm games, players can look into a whole new world using the GamePad. Players can look left, right, and even above them to block arrows fired from a pirate ship using the GamePad as a shield.
Gamer: Remember the thrill of playing video games past bedtime and trying not to get caught by mom? Players can relive their childhood with Gamer, where they need to play classic WarioWare microgames on the GamePad, while also keeping an eye out for mom on the main TV. When mom is close, a few quick button presses on the GamePad will help players pretend they are asleep, or else the game ends if they’re caught by mom. It’s the video game equivalent of patting your head and rubbing your stomach at the same time.
Shutter: In this game, players try to spot a list of targeted suspects or actors on the TV, then zoom in and take pictures of suspects using the Wii U GamePad as a camera.
Disco: While each holding one side of the GamePad, two players alternate tapping the touch screen to battle each other in a fun disco competition, with a variety of different music.
The good news is that you won’t be waiting very long until the game is released, with it slated for release exclusively on the Wii U later this month.
