About The Game

Wario's Woods is a puzzle game in which Toad piles up falling creatures and bombs in order to make them all disappear, collect gold coins and reach the next level. Setting up chain reactions is a very effective strategy to go far in this game.

Several supporting characters of the Mario series make a guest appearance. The NES version of Wario's Woods is mostly remembered for being the last NES game officially released in the West. Although less known than other puzzle games from Nintendo such as Dr. Mario and Tetris Attack, Wario's Woods can become quite addictive and is definitely worth a try for puzzle fans.
