Warioware, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!

Conniving money-mad villain Wario is back, and this time he has enlisted his friends to create and distribute hundreds of minigames -- putting old favorites like Punch-Out!! alongside quirky new additions that defy description -- to get the most bang for his production buck. The concept is difficult to explain, but we'll try: Players are presented with a series of game screens and are given a blink of an eye (okay, about five seconds) to figure out what they have to do. And if that's not hard enough, they are limited to using the Game Boy's A button and control pad. Fans and aspiring developers can also create and submit their own minichallenges at warioware.biz, but be forewarned: Wario's a cheapskate.
