Ah, the days of Mario Paint
for the Super Nintendo--I remember spending hours using the little mouse and plastic mouse-pad just to make short animation sequences of Mario in elaborate death scenes. As much fun as that was, besides drawing, animating, or playing the fly-swatting game, you couldn't play a game with what you drew and you couldn't really share what you created with friends. So now, 17 years later, Nintendo has released the game WarioWare Do It Yourself
for the DS. This game (which is part of the WarioWare franchise of ridiculously random and hectic microgames) does what no other game before it has let you do--create your own games. So now instead of just animating your own Mario, you can make a game where if you don't tap him to make him jump or shoot fire, he will get killed by a goomba.
