The Hall of Hieroglyphs is the first level of Wario Land 4. It is also the first level of the Entry Passage. It doesn't have any difficult challenges since it's the first level of the game. The whole level is basically a tutorial, teaching the player how to properly control Wario and master his moves.


The level has various pictures (or "hieroglyphs") of the shop owner on the walls teaching Wario what he needs to do across the level. For example, there are some parts in which he will have to perform his Dash Attack, other parts where he needs to throw a rock to break some bricks, etc.

At the end of the level, Wario must hit the switch to open up the vortex which brings Wario back to the Pyramid. This stage, along with the Golden Passage, does not have a CD to collect. In S-Hard Mode, the switch is near the beginning of the level.


Time given in different modes[edit]

The time given to escape the level after hitting the switch varies between game modes.

  • WL4 Normal Mode Sprite.png: the time given is 1:00.
  • WL4 Hard Mode Sprite.png: the time given is 0:15.
  • WL4 S-Hard Mode Sprite.png (unlockable): the time given is 2:30, but the switch is located near the beginning of the level.
