Are there any Wario Land games as good as VB?

Kind of a lighthearted topic maybe, but Iím playing through WLVB for the first time ever, and I am amazed at how good it is and how well it holds up. All of the powerups, the level designs, the fluidity of the controls, of course the 3D ó it hangs so so well together, and itís got me desperately wanting to play another one of these after I finish this one. Do any if his few platforming adventures equal this one (or better) in your opinion?

Jack Bros, but only the Japanese version is affordable.

The best games on Virtual Boy in my opinion are:

Galactic Pinball
Space Squash
Bound High!
VB Wario Land
Jack Bros.
Hyper Fighting
Faceball Remastered
Fishbone
BLOX
V-Tetris
Panic Bomber
Water World
Insmouse no Yakata

The above list is in no specific order.

Actually I think VB Wario Land is the best game in the series. With Wario Land 2 the Wario series changed from "beat the stage while finding secrets and coins" to "run around a bigger stage looking for secrets and coins and you can't die, just get inconvenienced" which I didn't think was as good as before. The next best game in the series is Super Mario Land 3 Wario Land on Gameboy, which is still a regular platformer.
Of the later more exploration-based games, Wario Land 4 on GBA and Wario Land Shake Dimension on Wii are both pretty good though, but not close to Virtual Boy Wario Land in my opinion.

I personally think Bound High! is the best game.

add Mario Clash and my list of suggestions looks identical to Dreammary's

He didn't ask which -Virtual Boy- games were better than Wario Land, he asked which -Wario Land- games were better than Wario Land on Virtual Boy

Oh; the answer is none, Nintendo has yet to even come close to what they did with VB Wario Land in the rest of the series.

I agree! The Wario series went the way of Castlevania and found it's way of doing things and never went back. A Wario Land Virtual Boy remake would be nice...

Iíd really like to see a WarioEdit program developed as it would be amazing to make a brand new Wario fan game for Virtual Boy. Also a sprite editor to convert a new Mario!! The options are endless really.

VB Wario Land is by far my favorite Wario game.

Wario Land 2 and 3 just didn't grab me, it deviated too far from the 'Mario' formula for me. Having to collect/do certain things to progress? No thanks. VB Wario Land absolutely nailed the balance of collecting vs standard get to the goal. I like how collecting isn't mandatory to finish, but more of an incentive to play again and explore.

The original GB Wario Land is one of those ones I've been meaning to play, so can't comment on that one. I've played a bit but not near as much as I'd like to.
