WarioWare D.I.Y.- DS


Through the years, Nintendo has created hundreds of microgames for the WarioWare series. Now we want to see what you've got. The WarioWare D.I.Y. game lets players create the same kind of microgames that are the hallmark of the WarioWare series....

WarioWare D.I.Y./WarioWare D.I.Y. Showcase


At first I wanted to start this review with a "Do you like to do it yourself" reference to The 40-Year-Old Virgin, but then I thought, "Is that how I really want to be remembered in the annals of...

WarioWare: D.I.Y. Review


Make your own fun.

Fantastic interface for creating your own "microgames", tons of content, Nintendo-supported design competitions, great humor

No DSi camera support

I cannot recommend this game enough to creative types - while the design suite is somewhat limited (these are five second games, after all), the interface is brilliant and the art of creation is incredibly satisfying. Every DS gamer should give it a...

WarioWare D.I.Y. - DS review at Thunderbolt Games


As gamers, we're passionate about play. Though many of us yearn to express our own creative ideas, game-making tools can be intimidating, to say the least. Nintendo has now put together a package that lowers the bar of entry for game creation, whilst...

WarioWare: D.I.Y. (DS) Review


The newest WarioWare title gives you the ability to create your own games, but the low number of pre-loaded mini-games and Nintendo's friend code service prevent this game from truly shining.

WarioWare: D.I.Y.


D.I.Y. is easily the most complex WarioWare title yet.

Deep game creation tools ; Excellent online features

Learning curve is very high ; Few pre made microgames

Actually I can see why they omitted the more complex mini-game options. Allowing the players to do other actions besides tapping would have meant more development time and an even more complex set of tools. The already existing tools are hard to...

WarioWare DIY


Nintendo's Intelligent Systems studio has developed some of the company's more interesting releases over the years, including Paper Mario, Fire Emblem, WarioWare and Advance Wars. One game they co-developed, though, has been painfully without a sequel:...

WarioWare D.I.Y. - Nintendo DS


Tap it! Tap it! All Right, Now Tap it!

Okay, this sounds like a lot of fun. This wasn't even on my radar but I'll probably have to at least give it a try now

WarioWare D.I.Y. Review


Wario needs your help to get rich. Time to put on the design cap and get to work.

Despite the learning curve and handful of microgames, WarioWare D.I.Y. is one of Nintendo's most ingenious and satisfying DS efforts, and we strongly recommend playing it on the DSi XL, where those big screens make it easier to draw and view your...

WarioWare D.I.Y. Nintendo DS Review


First, it's important to note that D.I.Y. isn't your standard WarioWare. Although the game includes 90 pre-made microgames, it won't take long to unlock and experience them. Instead, the focus was put on user creation, where instead of slogging through...

In-depth tutorial, accessible menus, near limitless potential, you can share your creations with other DS and even Wii owners, intriguing design challenges

You must input friend codes to share content, not enough included microgames, children may have trouble understanding game creation

Channel your creative energy and become a video game developer with WarioWare D.I.Y. (Do It Yourself). The latest entry in the acclaimed series casts you as a designer, charged with helping Wario make tons of cash by dreaming up and then releasing your...
