Wario's back, and greedier than ever! In his fourth Wario Land adventure, Wario heads off to plunder a recently discovered pyramid. Of course, Wario's going to have to earn his fortune, as the pyramid is teeming with bad guys.
Almost scrapping the "no-die" gameplay used in Wario Land 2 and 3, Wario still has unlimited lives, but he now has a life meter. Below the life meter (the eight hearts in the upper-left of the screen) is a "coin meter" comprised of eight bars. Collecting a red coin from a defeated enemy fills up one bar. When the coin meter is completely filled, one empty heart in Wario's life meter will be replenished.
The graphics fit in perfectly with the Wario Land series, and the gameplay is as addictive as ever. I was not expecting better than the excellent Wario Land 3, but somehow Nintendo managed to improve on it.
