Fun and silly collection of mini games; some potty humor.

Wario has turned to adult audiences approach with caution.

I was enjoying the beautiful morning sunshine, making myself an Espresso, my 4 year old’s friends came for a sleepover, so I already was expecting them to be up all night, when I checked on them, they were twerking and going; “oh yeahhh!” Repeatedly while I heard utterly inappropriate noises from his friends. I checked the tv that the “Nintendo Switch” was hooked on and I saw that the game was prompting them to make a buttograph. I do not recommend this to kids, it activates the awful and dirty mind. Wario games have been getting worse, if only they were like the originals.

Is It Any Good?

WarioWare: Move It! is a fun and funny game, but the laughs die down after a couple of hours due to repetition and some frustrating controls at times. But still, it's perfect for older kids looking for a fast and frantic collection of ridiculous macrogames to play by themselves or with their friends and family. Some of the games are really humorous, like a tall cat trying to catch a flying fish between your legs, drawing shapes in the air with your buttocks, or grabbing the correct child's hands. There are some real "LOL" moments here. There are a bunch of cooperative ("co-op") and competitive multiplayer modes, bringing lots of variety to the game. But when it comes to the actual macrogames, it won't take long before you've seen and played them all. As a result, the appeal wanes after a couple of hours. That, along with some of the frustrating Joy-Con moves that aren't as responsive as others make WarioWare: Move It! as frantic as it is funny, but overall it's full of silly charm and great for a family game night.
