WarioWare: Twisted! (JP) is a video game for the Game Boy Advance that uses motion sensing abilities to do many things on many mini-games. Despite being released in Australia, a PAL region, WarioWare Twisted! never made it to Europe.
WarioWare Twisted! is an innovative title that uses technology similar to what was present in Yoshi Topsy Turvy and Kirby Tilt 'n' Tumble for the Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Color, respectively. Every single microgame in WarioWare Twisted! is controlled by twisting the Game Boy Advance left and right. Each game uses it in a unique way. The specially made cartridge also contains a rumble pak that shakes the Game Boy Advance whenever the Gyro Sensor is put into play. WarioWare Twisted! asks what console the player is using when they boot up the game, whether it be a standard Game Boy Advance or a bottom slot system such as the Game Boy Advance SP or Nintendo DS. Despite not working well with a Game Boy Player (and the manual saying it's not compatible), WarioWare Twisted! works nonetheless.
WarioWare Twisted features several Nintendo cameos. 9-Volt's stages in particular are all references to past Nintendo published titles. Games referenced include Wrecking Crew, Super Mario Bros. 3, Metroid, Clu Clu Land, Mach Rider and more. Beyond the Nintendo themed microgames there are subtle references to past games contained in other microgames from sound effects to concepts to even the names of the micro and mini games (such as "Mewtroid"). Five of the records are from classic Nintendo Entertainment System games including Super Mario Bros., Kid Icarus, Metroid, Balloon Fight and Wrecking Crew. One of the "doodads" is a Love Tester (Nintendo long ago manufactured Love Testers in Japan).
