Bumper Thumper (known as Dodge and Drive in PAL regions) is one of the General minigames from Mario Party: Island Tour.


Players boost to the center of the screen and bump others three times.


The minigame takes place on a tall tower in an amusement park. The object is to be the last player on the tower by pushing the others off the edge using their hovercrafts. However, the platform is initially protected by walls around it. The sixteen sections of the wall will lower by half if they are hit, and will disappear if they are hit a second time, enabling losses.


  • Circle Pad – Move
