Wario Land 3 is a video game released in 2000 as the successor to Wario Land II. It is released by Nintendo for the Game Boy Color. The game is the third one in the series and was welcomed to critical acclaim. Many of Wario's reactions return from the previous game with the addition of new reactions, such as a snowman, being invisible and a vampire. It was succeeded by Wario Land 4 for the Game Boy Advance in 2001.


After crashing his plane into a forest, Wario gets lured to a magic music box that sucks him into an unknown world. A creature within the world says that he can send Wario back to his world if he can find all of the music boxes across this new world. He gets Wario's full attention when he proclaims that he can keep all of the treasure that he might find on the way.


Wario is lured to a music box and is subsequently sucked into it. Little did he expect an entire world to be featured in it. The gameplay is similar to the game before it. You travel through various levels, collecting coins and falling victim to enemy attacks in order to undergo transformations. Wario does not have a life meter in the game, but rather when attacked he looses coins. Levels are basically won by thinking of how to get past a situation or complete a certain puzzle, which usually involves touching an enemy. Within each stage are four treasure chests that'll give Wario a variety of things.
