It's funny that they felt the need to put a number on this and insert it into the MARIO LAND continuity. A reminder that there was a time when that weird little pervert Wario couldn't sell a game on his own!
It is somewhat fitting, though, because this kind of feels like a weird romhack of 6 GOLDEN COINS. They took that game, made it even slower, made the characters even bigger, and made the gameplay more focused on physical combat and a bunch of powerups that kind of all do the same thing. I found it playable, but dull, clunky and way too long. They certainly succeeded in making Wario seem very distinct from Mario in how he plays, but for me, at least, not for the better.
It's fun to learn that the variable how-big-is-your-mansion endings from LUIGI'S MANSION are kind of a callback to this, of all things. Or do they do this thing in every Wario game?

This was one of my favorite games growing up. Super fun.

Run of the mill platformer that lacks a lot of the charm other Nintendo releases had at the time.

What a fantastic Game Boy game. I wish I had had the chance to play this when I was young. Excellent level design, great exploration with levels that change after the first time you complete them. Treasures never felt unfair to collect, and grinding coins was not a chore. The power-ups were fun to use, albeit limited in scope. Bosses could be frustrating, but nothing unfair. Definitely makes me excited to play the rest of the series.

From a philosophical point of view, Wario is essentially Daniel Plainview
