Regardless of the weaknesses of Mega Microgames, the game is still an enjoyable time-killer, and is a perfect fit for the casual video gamer.
Wario's idea for the game was born after seeing a news report about a fictional video game, Pyoro. Inspired by the sales of video games, he decides to start his own game company. He purchases a computer and hires friends to help him create the game. The first set of games focuses on the introduction genre, and the second is a "Anything Goes" type of game. Wario is often featured in the games and has an overall influence on their design.
