One quiet morning, Wario was resting peacefully in bed. He was so tired from
treasure-hunting that he did not hear the suspicious intruders enter his castle.
Who were these mysterious characters, and why are they after Wario's treasure?

"Aaargh! I can't believe that Captain Syrup and the Black Sugar Gang have stolen
my treasure! I am one angry Wario! I'm going to get my tresures back if it's the
last thing I do!

"Wario Land 2 is much better than any of my previous games. Why, you ask?
Because in this game, I am immortal! There is no Game Over! With multiple
endings, you can play my game MANY times. Isn't that great?!"

This game appears at the end of every level. You need at least 50 coins to play.
Every panel you turn over costs you another 50 coins. If you guess the right
