WarioWare: Get It Together is a wonderful rarity

Today WarioWare is launched: Get it Together, a game of minigames with the dark reverse of Mario as the protagonist. Wario has a company this time, as its business partners and workers join the protagonist campus.

It is complicated to explain what WarioWare is, but it can be summed up as an attempt by Nintendo for recovering the spirit of minigames, all wrapped in such a charismatic and unique aesthetic as its characters. All this, at a frantic rhythm, because each minigame lasts seconds. Quiet, there are 200 different and do not make repetitive, much less.

The turn of this delivery resides in that it is no longer only Wario who stars, more or less, these mini-games, but all his companions are present and each character has a self-skill that characterizes it and limits it to certain scenarios.

Wario pastes rambers in all directions and moves more or less freely, but other characters have limited their mobility to an address or jumping or shooting towards a right or to take hooks. It is an absurd approach that can only work in a game that is stirring as a pig for the absurgence.

All minigames are very stove and that is fantastic: hipznotize a giant head using a clock, unleash a drain to leave the water in a bathtub, rock a baby's cradle to stop crying ... and so AD Infinitum. This sense of humor is what makes this saga in a very dear to the fans of Nintendo.

The story mode is relatively short, about four hours if you repeat the minigames because you put the leg; But there are other modes to lengthen the total duration. For example, the Wario Cup, which poses weekly challenges. Or potpourri, a multiplayer for up to four players with collaborative minigames in which the compatibility and connection with the other player are crucial to solve them.

It is a pity that, although there are classic mini-games like the snot in the nose, not all challenges are equally bright and that in many of them the particular skills of the characters work in turn as a limitation. The 'bosses' are especially poor, whose mini-games are very bad.

This does not remove WarioWare: Get It Together is a game full of imagination, which will take a smile or a laugh often and that is appreciated that it exists because it is totally different from the videogames that are released today. And for the first time, it comes totally folded to Spanish. It is a bit weird to hear Wario speak the tongue of Cervantes, but the detail is appreciated.

I hope the final result was as bright as the previous deliveries, but respect that Nintendo tries to do new things with minor titles who always find their niche of players and that they are a breath of fresh air between the usual shooting of action and shooting games .

And I value a lot that there is a game you can play for 15 minutes and stay satisfied, especially in a console like the switch that you can take you on top.
