Bumper Balls is a minigame in Mario Party and Mario Party 2.

Gameplay[edit]

Mario Party[edit]

The objective of the mini-game is to bump other players off a platform by utilizing personalized balls.

Mario Party 2[edit]

In Mario Party 2 there are three levels for the players to compete in and they each have different challenges.

  • The first level takes place on a platform surrounded by lava. It is a basic level.
  • The second level takes place on an icy mountain. In the middle is a Fly Guy frozen in ice. It can be very slippery on the mountain, so players must take care not to slide off.
  • The third level is on a floating isle in the ocean. Characters bumped off are carried away by Bloopers. The isle contains rocks and bumps which can change slightly the speed when rolling over them.

Controls[edit]

  • Control Stick – Move
