Manufacturer's Description

DO IT YOURSELF!

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. Players design
every aspect of their creations, including graphics, animation, music and rules. Do It Yourself! Take on the role of game designer and create your own microgames by crafting everything from artwork, animations, music and action instructions. WarioWare D.I.Y. comes with more than 90 pre-made games to play, but players who have access to a broadband Internet connection can wirelessly download a virtually endless supply of user-generated games, or upload their own creations to share with the world. When creating games, players can utilize a library of pre-made graphics and sound samples, borrow elements from other microgames on their system, or start from scratch.

Features

Do It Yourself! Take on the role of game designer and create your own microgames by crafting everything from artwork, animations, music and action instructions. WarioWare D.I.Y. comes with more than 90 pre-made games to play, but players who have access to a
broadband Internet connection can wirelessly download a virtually endless supply of user-generated games, or upload their own creations to share with the world. When creating games, players can utilize a library of pre-made graphics and sound samples, borrow elements from other microgames on their system, or start from scratch. Sharing new content is the real key to WarioWare: D.I.Y., and there are a number of ways for players to participate: Using a local wireless connection, friends can swap micro-games, comics and music they have created.
After the game launches, Nintendo will regularly make new micro-games available for download to players who have access to a broadband Internet connection. From time to time, Nintendo will challenge WarioWare: D.I.Y. players to create games based on a specific theme. Nintendo will make the best submissions available for download to players with a wireless broadband Internet connection. Players can upload items to their Storage Crate in the Warehouse (wireless broadband Internet access required). These products can then be downloaded by any of the friends with whom they
have exchanged friend codes. If you want to take a break from creating and playing games, why not try your hand at a comic strip? WarioWare: D.I.Y. includes all the tools artists need to compose their own four-panel comic strips.

Players who have a Wii console can add another dimension to their game. By downloading the WarioWare: D.I.Y. Showcase game from Nintendo's WiiWare service, players get access to 72 more micro-games, and can experience the games they created with their Nintendo DS system on their TV. 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 Crazy as ever and just as fun! 7 May 2010
By I Like Cheese VINE VOICE
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I've played all of the previous WarioWare games on the various Nintendo consoles and handhelds, so knew what to expect here. D.I.Y. is as insane and frantic as ever only this time you get to create your own games.

At first the D.I.Y. modes can be a little hard to get into as what is available to you to be able to create your games is quite limited, but as you progress you get better tools, more options etc that lead to some pretty fun game designs. You can also make your own 4-frame comics and mix some of your own tunes. This is fun but not very long lasting. The mini game creation however is brilliant once you get the hang of it.

If you've not played a WarioWare game before, I warn you that these 90 pre-loaded "games" are not games as such - they are in a series of (very) mini-games where you must do what is instructed correctly as fast as you can to move on to the next stage. It is very basic but so addictive, trying to beat your previous highest score.

It doesn't have as much content as the previous games in series with regards to the games readily available, but it is very rewarding and pretty massive once you have created some of your own games. I definitely recommend this to anyone - 3 seconds have never so fun!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, fun and creative! 3 July 2010
By Oli
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have been interested in this game for a long time, and when i finally came to buy it a couple of weeks ago I was extremely happy with my purchase! The main aim of the game is to design short "Micro-Games" (none lasting more than 5 seconds) to ship to wario. Previous to this I had never designed a game before, but within an hour I had created my first game, thanks to the highly informative, witty-scripted tutorials. This game is fantastic and I would reccommend it to anyone interested in game design, or just letting your creativity run wild!

WarioWare D.I.Y allows for the first time in the series to allow you to create your own Microgames from scratch, hence the "Do It Yourself" part of the title. You'll be making the Graphics, the music and the A.I to make your Microgames come to life. The creation tools are amazing for this game. Your imagination will be free to run wild and create some fun games. The tutorials provided on making Microgames are great, and while they are long, they explain everything really clearly so everyone will get the hang of everything in no time. You can even send your Microgames to friends, and even send them to the WarioWare D.I.Y Showcase Wii Ware title for people to download.

This WarioWare title isn't all just a creation tool, it also plays like any other WarioWare game. Completing Microgames from other characters is also intact. You'll also get to create your own music and also comics. All are great fun and will keep you going for hours.

This is the biggest WarioWare game yet, and the ability to crate your own games is amazing. This is a must own for your DS if you have a creative mind and wish to create games to show to many others. 9/10

4.0 out of 5 stars This really is D.I.Y 13 May 2011
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a brilliant game for a creative person, with a lot of ideas. If you know what you want to do, then you will never get bored of this game. However, if you are a fan of the Wario-Ware games, and are buying this game because of that, you may find there isn't enough to do. So, lets assume your in the first group, creating your own stuff has never been easier, there are brilliant tutorials that are fun to watch, and a lot of scope for programming cool ideas. There is also a decent music creation app and a cartoon strip app. All in all, this game is for someone with an imagination, and who often copmes back to games for short periods of time, because the fun of getting an idea and seeing it come to life never *ahem* wares off.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly what it says on the box 19 May 2013
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Warioware DIY is, on the surface, a rather lean offering from the franchise, until you consider the fact that the game also offers the chance to make your own mini-game, and even has Wario request art assets for partially completed games, and several lessons in how the microgames work.

Compared to what Nintendo have done with the franchise since this game was released, this is a masterpiece. It doesn't need to be hugely complex and powerful, and it is far from it.
This is a game to make 5-second micro-games, and it does that perfectly.

2.0 out of 5 stars WarioWare : D.I.Y (Nintendo DS) 7 May 2013
Format:Video Game
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
For a full priced game you don't get a lot for your money. There isn't much to do in the way of gameplay. Yes, you can create short mini-games, but as they are so brief it's very difficult to sustain a meaningful level of interest. For me, this was a disappointing first entry to the series.
