Looking around on the internet the other day, I came across this beautiful artwork for Warioland 4, a Game Boy Advance game that Nintendo released back in 2001. This game may be forgotten by now but it’s actually a really fun game that’s worth taking a second look at. Unlike most other Nintendo platformers that have 40-100 levels to discover, Warioland 4 only has 20 levels to explore. But the levels are more massive than what you’re used to. Each level has a theme (jungle, ruins, haunted hotel, etc.) and there are four themes to a passage. Once you get to the end of a level, a portal opens up which you must get to in a set amount of time or Wario will begin to lose the treasures he has collected along the way.
Warioland 4 is included in the list of Game Boy Advance games available for download for Nintendo 3DS as of December 16, 2011.
