General Commentary and Game Overview
This game is quite unique and bizarre but it's actually in a good way. It's very creative and original and is very fun to play in terms of actually playing it and because it's funny. It's not even "so bad it's good", it's just good really. I read the comments on this game and it seems to just be cringing over the mere idea of Wario and Waluigi being a gay couple, which I would argue against it being "cringe" by saying that no one would be saying the same if it was a straight couple. To me a gay couple is just as romantic. This isn't a romance game but a comedy game though and the comedy definitely shows just by the idea as you have to admit it is a shipping you wouldn't expect. I actually had more fun playing this than I was probably meant to be. There are no words to describe how quick I would be to release the click on the mouse when I see that blue hat. The Mushroom Kingdom seems to be like Saudi Arabia in a way if they execute you for being gay. That adds to the theory of Princess Peach actually being a dictator, a theory I have particular interest in. Whatever the story is, it's still quite fun and even if you don't like the idea, I still think it's worth a shot.
Pros +Highly original
+Quite fun to play
+Would definitely recommend for LGBTQs who may have to go through the same kind of discrimination
Cons -While a game I would play over and over, it's not a game I'd play for hours since it takes like 5 minutes maximum to complete a level.
-The hanging of the two, while I'm not bothered by it, might be a little disturbing for some viewers.
9 / 10
The gameplay is the only thing I feel is worth talking about and I already sort of summed it up in the commentary and overview due to this. The controls work well and it makes for a pretty fun mini-game. While it's not really as spectacular as a "game game", it's still good on its own and I wouldn't mind if it made a few appearances on other games (with the creator's permission of course).
8 / 10
The graphics are not that important in a game like this but nothing is glitchy and the artwork is pretty good. The animation also works. While it's not the best artwork, it's still pretty damn good and it's really only an 8 due to bias. If we remove my personal preferences, it'd likely be a 10.
7 / 10
The sound effects are not really there and the music does get tiring for a bit but it mostly just comes down to me nitpicking.
10 / 10
Hell yeah, I'd play this again. I had quite a hype from trying to make sure the cops don't see the two making out. XD
Final Words
9 / 10
This game looks like it would be a mess by the title alone but it actually isn't. The gameplay works and is original and is both fun and hilarious to play. It's more of a mini-game but it is still worth a shot even if Wario and Waluigi being a couple makes you cringe.

about the "no one would be saying the same if it was a straight couple" thing. aren't wario and waluigi siblings? wouldn't it be incest anyway?

I didn't know they were brothers. Did it say so anywhere in the series?
