Wario's Woods is one of the best puzzle games out there, as you will spend many hours playing this classic.

User Rating: 7.5 | Wario no Mori NES
Highs: Soild gameplay, decent graphics, decent music, controls nicely, and a good story as well.

Lows: Can be unforgiving on newer players, sound effects are a little dated, also came out in 1994 like Mega Man 6 did.

Verdict: A great way for Nintendo to end the legacy of their own 8-bit monster machine.

Wario, one of the most famous villians in the Mario series, got to star in his own game, and that was Wario Land: Super Mario Land 3, released in 1993 for the Game Boy, but Nintendo decided to end the NES' 8-bit legacy on a strong note, as they not only gave Wario another game, but they also made him the villian in the NES classic, Wario's Woods, released in 1994. You play as Toad, one of Mario's allies, as he must navigate through a deadly forset, solving puzzle after puzzle, to try and stop Wario. The main objective is to destroy the right colored deadly creatures, using the right kind of colored bomb. You need 2 bombs to destroy 1 creature, and you need just 1 bomb to destroy 2 or more. Destroying these creatures are like solving a puzzle. These creatures are usually lined up in straight lines, diagonally, or both depending on how far you get in the game. Wario's Woods is a good game, but not without problems. This game can be very unforgiving and difficult especially on newer players, the sound effects are a little choppy, and just like Mega Man 6, it came out in 1994. The year of Super Metroid, Donkey Kong Country, Sonic the Hedgehog 3, Sonic & Knuckles, Final Fantasy VI, Need for Speed, Castlevania: Bloodlines, Contra: Hard Corps and Mega Man X just to name a few. However, that dosen't mean you shouldn't get Wario's Woods, because it is still an NES game worth buying and it will be a fine addition to your collection. This and Mega Man 6 are probably the last 2 memorable titles in the 8-bit monster machine's library. You can pick it up as a used NES cart, or you can unlock it by using cheats in Animal Crossing for the GameCube, which is where I first played it. Wario's Woods, the last licensed title in the NES library (and the only one with an ESRB rating) is definately worth a pickup. Don't miss out on this old-school gem.
