A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
There's no overt positive or negative messages put forth in the game, although the gameplay does reinforce persevering against ever-increasingly difficult odds.
Positive Role Models
Wario is traditionally a villain that's working in his own self-interests. Even his own actions are to blame for the events of the game. The other characters, while they have their own goals, don't have significant story development.
There are a mix of genders, ages, and other character types included in the game, including robots and aliens. None of these characters are customizable, and exist with their own unique special abilities.

Ease of Play
Figuring out and understanding the goals of each mini-game in the time allowed can potentially take more than one playthrough. This gets more complex when you're also trying to learn the individual powers of each character, as well as the fact that every few rounds, the speed of each game accelerates to a fever pitch, relying more on reaction speed and instinct than specifically designed plans.
Violence & Scariness
While you may be shooting at targets, hitting objects, or blasting enemies, there's no blood or gore, and the cartoonish nature of the scenes significantly reduces any impact found in each mini-game.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
While nothing's shown, there's a mini-game where you're trying to cover a person as a fan attempts to blow their towel away.

While there's some occasional crude humor (like sticking a character in someone's nose or dodging poop), there's no language concerns.

This is the latest in a series of Warioware games, featuring the comical villain from Nintendo games, as well as characters known from this series of titles. One of the stages pulls many of its mini-games from previously released Nintendo franchises, such as Metroid, Donkey Kong, Luigi's Mansion, The Legend of Zelda, and more, which could get players interested in checking out those titles.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Warioware: Get It Together! Is an action game made exclusively for the Nintendo Switch. This is the latest game in the long-running mini-game franchise, and features characters from previous installments in the series. It also features a number of mini-games based on other Nintendo games, like The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Donkey Kong, and others. While there are some combat sequences with characters shooting at enemies or hitting targets, no blood or gore's shown as a result. Plus, the short nature of each mini-game and their cartoonish looks limit the impact of any violence. Also, there's one mini-game where you try to cover a person up before a fan can blow their towel away, but otherwise, apart from potty humor with poop or things like sticking a character up a nostril, there's nothing inappropriate in the game.
Is It Any Good?
Stretch your fingers and get ready to react quickly, because this collection of mini-games will test your reflexes against a ton of crazy goal-based scenarios. Warioware: Get It Together! builds on the format of the franchise, providing more than 200 different bite-sized scenes to play through in 10 seconds or less. Figuring out what you need to do has always been the biggest trick with Warioware games, and this is no different. In fact, this actually takes on a higher stake when you add in the individual abilities of each character. There are almost two dozen characters included in the game, each with their own special abilities that change how each mini-game is played. For example, if you have a character than can fly, crossing a stage is much easier to do than a character than can only use rings to cross areas. That makes it even trickier to get used to every single element for every single game. As a result, once you've unlocked everyone, you'll probably find the characters you really like and use them over and over again, potentially expanding out to other characters if you feel like it.
That's not to say that there's limitations here – there's a ton to do, especially as you unlock additional play elements. In fact, there's more of a reason to explore and hop back into previously played mini-games thanks to the missions feature, which gives you specific goals to complete in order to earn credits, which can be used to continue playing sessions or purchase items to level up each character in the Play-o-Pedia. This is a fresh way to keep players active and engaged, especially if they feel like they may be bored with some mini-games. The same could be said about the Wario Cup, which will update on a weekly basis with new tests for you to accomplish for a top score on a leaderboard and for bragging rights amongst your friends. Less impressive are the Variety Pack games. These are fine if you're playing with a few friends once or twice, but these solo games don't feel as impressive, random, or engrossing as the random nature of the games in the story mode. If you put this mode to the side though, the fast-paced nature of Get It Together! is sure to keep you blasting, jumping, and flipping through mini-games for weeks to come.
