Strong Bad first plans to beat the snot out of Homestar by sabotaging his chances for the Tri-annual Free Country USA Race to the End of the Race. When his plans backfire, he ends up with an unwanted house guest cramping on his style. Strong Bad needs to get life back to normal, by any means possible.

The interface and gameplay follow the traditional point-and-click adventure for 3D engines where the player controls Strong Bad though the use of the mouse or Wii Remote pointer. This game also features two mini games: Teen Girl Squad, a comic generator based off the series of cartoons of the same name. Snake Boxer 5 is a top-down boxing game in a style of a Commodore 64 game.

This games is the first of an episodic series of five featuring the characters of HomestarRunner.com. It is also the first WiiWare game for Telltale Games.
