The Wario Land series of 2-D platform games starring Mario's disgusting blob of an alter ego generally take the Mario formula and adding lots of punching, kicking and slamming things around. As you might imagine, Shake It adds shaking: By grabbing on to most anything and shaking the controller, you can shake things out of it -- things like money. Money is key. Collecting cash in the various levels is what allows you to buy the maps that open up even more levels."
