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 slightly change the player's speed when rolling over them.

Controls[edit]

  • Control Stick – Move
