Bob-OOOM! is a single-player minigame found in Mario Party Advance. Its name is a portmanteau of "Bob-omb" and "boom."


The player is given a Bob-omb from above. After waiting for a second, the character drops it, blowing up the bottom two statues.


The player standing on top of the Bowser Statues attempts to drop Bob-ombs with the right timing in order to crack and destroy them, earning points for each one. If the Bob-omb flashes, it will explode soon, and if the player holds the Bob-omb too long, the explosion will leave them stunned temporarily. Destroying two statues at once adds four seconds to the timer, destroying three statues at once adds six seconds to the timer, and destroying four statues at once adds eight seconds to the timer. Destroying an entire set of statues causes more to appear and replace them.

In the Shroom City mode, the player must earn 1,500 points to win.
