Bob-omb Squad is a minigame found in Super Mario 64 DS and New Super Mario Bros.. It is one of Wario's minigames in the former and a Variety Minigame in the latter.

In this minigame, the player must hit the falling Para-bombs with a black ball attached to a slingshot before they destroy the player's garden of Power Flowers. The player has to aim the slingshot with the stylus and releasing it fires the ball. The player will score 100 points for each Para-bomb they hit, but if they hit multiple Para-bombs in one shot, the points will be multiplied up to a maximum of 3,200. As the player's score goes up, the descent speed of the Para-bombs will increase. The game is over when all four of the Power Flowers at the bottom of the screen are destroyed by Para-bombs. However, this minigame is unique in that the standard Game Over screen does not appear.

Occasionally, Lakitu will appear. If the player hits Lakitu, all Para-bombs on-screen will blow up, but the player will only receive 100 points per Para-bomb (for example, if ten Para-bombs are on screen, the player will receive 1,000 bonus points).

In-game instructions[edit]

The parachuting Bob-ombs are destroying your flowers! Use your slingshot to knock them out of the air. Hit Lakitu to blow them all up.
