One of 9-Volt and 18-Volt's microgames is based on Wrecking Crew. The objective is to have Mario get all the Eggplant Men away from him by hitting Bombs with his Hammer, thereby destroying the ladders, and there are more Eggplant Men. The view begins at the side (like the original game), but quickly changes to a top-down one. If Mario gets hit by an Eggplant Man, he will fall off-screen and the player will lose the microgame.
