Bowser's Hammer Slammer is a Bowser Battle minigame appearing in Mario Party 10.


The members of Team Mario ride small, lever-operated carts on a circular track in a cave or mine. After a moment, Bowser is lifted into view on a circular elevator at the center of the track, carrying a large hammer. He slams the hammer in front of him, but Team Mario dodges by moving their carts to either side of the Koopa King; after this, the minigame begins.

The objective of Team Mario is to avoid getting hit by Bowser's hammer, while Bowser's objective is to deplete his enemies' hearts with hammer attacks. A red Bowser emblem on the tracks denotes where Bowser can attack at any given time, and he can pivot himself to move his target around the track. In turn, Team Mario can tilt the lever on their carts to move left or right, but they must be careful not to bump into each other; this can stop their momentum, leaving them easy prey for Bowser's hammer.

The minigame ends after 20 seconds, or if Bowser has depleted all of Team Mario's hearts.
