Product Description

Product Description

Every WarioWare game has featured a frenetic mix of wacky, five-second “microgames,” but WarioWare: D.I.Y. adds the next evolution to the same crazy gameplay: making your own microgames from the ground up. • Design your own games! Create your own microgames from scratch, or customize previously existing ones. Create custom graphics, compose music, and design your own gameplay rules, OR borrow any of these elements from other microgames and tweak them as you see fit. • Play, download, and trade! In the WarioWare tradition, there are plenty of microgames to play from the getgo! The game ships with over 90 microgames included, but you will also be able to download from a vast (and free!) online library of games (wireless broadband access required for online play), as well as trade them with your friends. A constant stream of fresh games will keep your game exciting and new! • Play on the Wii console, too! By downloading the WiiWare title WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase, you can experience your creations on the TV screen, access another 72 pre-made microgames, and even play microgames head-to-head with up to four players! • Music and comics as well! Besides games, WarioWare: D.I.Y. has a full suite of music-composition tools, as well as a set of tools for creating four-panel comic strips. Naturally, you can trade all these creations with friends as well, or just enjoy the 90 samples of each provided with the game.

Story
Surprise surprise, the infamously greedy Wario has another harebrained scheme to get rich… and this time, you're gonna help him. Using Dr. Crygor's invention, the Super MakerMatic 21, Wario has his eye fixed on conquering the game industry. This is where you come in. He's recruited an army of gamers, including you, to make these dreams come true. You will have access to a deep game creation toolset, a wide range of templates and the in-game assistance to micro-games expert Penny, but you'll really have to work that left brain muscle to go from lowly freelance designer to game creator extraordinaire.

Gameplay
The WarioWare franchise is famous for accessible, addictive gameplay through quick, fun games and WarioWare D.I.Y. is no exception with is focus on micro-games. In addition to 90 premade micro-games included on the WarioWare D.I.Y. DS game cartridge and the periodic release of additional downloadable games via a wireless broadband Internet connection, WarioWare D.I.Y. also includes the unique ability for players to create their own micro-games. This is done via an easy to understand toolset, which aids players in planning out the overall flow of the game, its graphics, music/audio and more. In doing this players can choose to create their games from scratch, utilize a set of templates or reuse game components from other created games. Regarding audio, players have several options, including using the DS microphone for recording purposes. Created games can also be shared with friends and the greater WarioWare D.I.Y. community via the DS' wireless functionality, and Nintendo will periodically announce calls for user created games in specific game categories. The best games submitted, as judged by Nintendo, will be recognized and distributed online for all WarioWare D.I.Y. owners to enjoy. Finally, WarioWare D.I.Y. also contains the ability for players to create their own four-panel comic strips when they want to take a break from game-making.

Wii Integration
WarioWare: D.I.Y. players who also have a Wii gaming console can add another dimension to their game. By downloading the WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase game from Nintendo's WiiWare service, players can gain access to 72 micro-games. In addition, they also have the unique opportunity to experience the games they created with their Nintendo DS system on their TVs. Each of the elements in these new games then becomes a part of the player's toolbox. The WiiWare game also includes an unlockable multiplayer mode that lets up to four people play micro-games competitively (additional accessories required and are sold separately).

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a game, but addicting! March 30, 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
WarioWare DIY may come with 90 or so pre-loaded microgames that many of us are familiar with. But the point of these 90 or so games isn't to play with (though, you can do that).

Really, as many Internet review sites have already said, this is a modern day "Mario Paint". You can create mini games, comic books (four panels each) and even full 90 second MIDI-like songs with 4 separate tracks and a percussion track. The amount of detail you get into your creations is all up to you. You decide how much involvement you want to put into it. Create something from the ground up? Go for it! But plan on spending upwards of 3+ hours to create a really good game... all for about 8 seconds of pay off.

Or maybe you just want to steal bits and pieces of other games to make your own? Or just edit some in-game artwork to give things a touch of your own personality? You can do that, too. And it takes much less time.

The problem is, even if you take shortcuts, this game is not a "pick up and play" type experience that Nintendo has recently become so famous for. You can save up to two projects of each type (game, comic, song) so you can be working on simultaneous projects and can always save and quit whenever you want. This is good. But even so, making these little baby steps may become tedious to you, as you may end up feeling like you're not getting anywhere.

Beyond the creation, there's also challenges. "Jobs" involve you creating different elements of games "on spec" for Wario. This is silly, because, even though the game presents you with a preferred outcome of your design, you could really just draw anything, like a bunch of scribbles, and the game won't know the difference.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Work of Genius For All Ages! April 17, 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Warioware D.I.Y. is amazing. It delivers exactly what it promises: The most entertaining, easy-to-learn game-making toolbox in history. There are reasonable limits to what you can do, but--within those boundaries--the creation possibilities are infinite.

By the way, there's a full game in here too...and it's a lot deeper than it initially appears (After two weeks of play, features are still unlocking). But the included game--as is--isn't the reason for purchase. Not at all. This thing is a cartoonist's paradise. A game maker's dream. An amusement park for animators and composers.

As others have mentioned, it's not for everybody, and you won't really see what this thing's capable of until you've invested a couple of hours in the hilarious and helpful tutorials. If, however, you love to draw or make music (and you don't have to be very skilled at either) and you have any interest at all in creating games...well, what are you waiting for? You may never want to remove this cartridge from your DS.

For folks who can't draw or write music, no worries: Using shapes, stamps, and the helpful auto-composer, you'll be turning out games in no time. Seriously, once you've done the tutorial, you can create a simple projectile-through-a-moving-target game in two minutes.

And if you do have some art and/or music skills....again, what are you waiting for?

From front to back, Warioware D.I.Y. is presented with humor, charm and the kind of solid polish that Nintendo's famous for. The learning system is brilliant and always entertaining: It begins with Wario as your cranky classmate, continues with you completing art for lazy Wario's projects, then keeps going through advanced dojo lessons (presented as puzzles) and the funny postings on a make-believe game forum.

4.0 out of 5 stars Creating is the best part... June 20, 2010
By C.Mike
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I first wanted this game because it allowed you to create your own games, and I always loved games which challenged my creativity. I am quite satisfied with this game overall; I love how you can make your own games, records and 4-panel comics. I also feel that the more I play this game, the more I seem to understand how real video games work.
However, I was disappointed to see that you can only make games where you have to tap with the stylus. There's no using the buttons, no additional actions with the stylus and no using the microphone. Also, I found most of the individual 90 pre-made microgames to be kind of dull.
But if you're serious about creating and using your mind, then this the game for you. If not, you should search elsewhere for a DS game you WOULD like...

5.0 out of 5 stars My son won't put it down! December 27, 2010

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Got this as a Christmas present for my 12yr old son. He hasn't put it down and has declared it his new favorite game. It's not like a regular game and involves my creative thought.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Game Creator For All Ages! April 17, 2010
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Warioware D.I.Y. is, flat-out, one of the most amazing pieces of software ever released. It delivers exactly what it promises: The most entertaining, easy-to-learn game-making toolbox in history. There are reasonable limits to what you can do, within those boundaries, the creation possibilities are infinite.

Oh, yeah, there's a ready-to-go game in here too...and it's a lot deeper than it initially appears(After two weeks of play, things are still unlocking).

But the ready-for-play microgames aren't the reason for purchase. Not at all. This thing is a cartoonist's paradise. A game maker's dream. A composer's wish come true.

As others have mentioned, it's not for everybody, and you won't really see what this thing's capable of until you've invested a couple of hours in the hilarious and helpful tutorials. If, however, you love to draw or make music (and you don't have to be very skilled at either) and you have any interest at all in creating games...well, what are you waiting for? You may never want to remove this cartridge from your DS.

For those of you who can't draw or write music, no worries: Using shapes, stamps, and the helpful auto-composer, you'll be turning out games in no time. Seriously, once you've done the tutorial, you can create a simple projectile-through-a-moving-target game in two minutes.
