General Commentary and Game Overview
I downloaded this game mainly because I just bored and hoping for something to do. A game like this caught my eye as you don't see games where you play as bosses very often. It really peaked my interest because they were Wario Land bosses, ones that I really enjoyed nonetheless. I downloaded it, played it, and decided to share my thoughts because I think there are things that are better addressed in a review than a simple comment.
Pros -Unique concept and gameplay
-The graphics blend together nicely, especially the GBC characters and the NES Mario enemies.
-Takes a great boss mechanic and turns it into a competitive multiplayer game
-Controls are precise
-Gamepad support
Cons -Default controls are really weird and cramped
-The title screen and disclaimer text look a little bad
-The baskets get in your way if you're on the top platform
8 / 10
The game takes the concept of jumping on your opponent's head, turning them into a ball, and throwing them in a basket from Wario Land 2 and 3 and turns it into a Mario Bros. styled minigame. You play as one of the two bosses (Dunk and Shoot) and have to jump on enemies' heads to turn them into a ball, which allows to to pick them up and dunk them into a basket. The controls feel precise and scoring points this way feels good. However, the default controls are pretty bad and feel really cramped. This can easily be fixed by changing them, but it's still worth noting.
7 / 10
The graphics are pretty good and mesh together pretty well. There's not much to say here.

However, the text in the disclaimer and the title screen looks a bit ugly and blurry. The title screen itself could be fixed too. While the art isn't bad at all, it's hard to tell at first that there's an arrow that can be used to select options. Making these buttons with a better font on them that highlight themselves when selected would help fix this problem easily, as well as explaining what the basic controls are in the game itself.
9 / 10
The music fits the game's aesthetic and meshes well together with the sounds. That's all.
Final Words
8 / 10
Super Dunk n' Shoot is a minigame that successfully transforms a boss mechanic into a fun competitive multiplayer game. Wario Land fans should definitley play it.
