WarioWare, Inc.: Mega Party Game$!, known in in Japan as Atsumare!! Made in Wario (あつまれ!!メイド イン ワリオ), consists of many mini-games known as "micro-games" that, on average, reach a 5-second length. It is the second game in the WarioWare series, and mainly uses the micro-games of the previous entry.

Test Entries
Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
4.0-330 Windows 7 Intel Core i7-920 @ 2.67GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 285 Definitely playable with every speedup disabled (the game has no speed issues at all even so), yet very annoying graphics issues still remain and can cause a lot of confusion in the already meant-to-be-confusing mini-games. Note that the graphical issues are far worse if you don't make sure you have every quality preferred setting set. I don't recommend it even with that though. You can only just barely tell what is going on. Eagleheart
4.0-593 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-3470 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660 Game Boy Advance games messed up if you have any filters on (AF is also affected). Disable them and game becomes almost fully playable. Moneyvova
4.0-5886 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-2450M @ 2.5GHz Intel HD Graphics 3000 (GT2+) The game appears to run perfectly (without any enhancements such as anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering.) Setting the texture cache anywhere between safe and fast does not seem to change this. ChillBro
