— In-game description
Charge! is a minigame found in Wii Play.
This game is set in a world made out of yarn. The player rides a sentient yarn cow, and the goal is to knock over scarecrows. The Wii Remote is held sideways, and tilting it makes the cow move. Tilting forward makes the cow run faster, and tilting back makes the cow slow down. Tilting to the side makes the cow turn. To make the cow jump, quickly raise the Wii Remote. The cow runs along a dirt path on a farm, laden with scarecrows and hurdles. Every regular scarecrow hit yields 1 point, and 5 bonus points are awarded when a string are all hit in a row. Crowned scarecrows yield 10 points, but unlike regular scarecrows, they can move around. Running into a hurdle breaks the hurdle, slows down the cow, and sometimes knocks the cow off the path. When off the path, the cow runs much slower. It is impossible to turn around and go backwards, as the cow cannot turn sharp enough, and will run into the unbreakable fences lining the edge of the path. If a lap is completed before the 90 second timer runs out, the game ends, and the points are tallied. If the timer runs out, the game ends and all points are lost.
