Candlelight Flight is a 1-vs.-3 minigame played in Mario Party 4.

Introduction[edit]

The game begins in a room. The camera zooms in on the solo player holding a candle. The lights go out, causing the solo player to cry out in shock. The solo player's candle is lit, and the game begins as the camera zooms out.

Gameplay[edit]

The setting is a dark room, with the solo player holding a candle and the members of the team each holding water guns. The goal for the team is to squirt out the solo player's candle. The solo player's goal is, of course, to avoid this. It takes five squirts to completely snuff the candle out. If the team fails at squirting the solo player five times, the solo player wins.

The room is completely dark except for the candle and the candles in the background, making it rather hard for the team to figure out their characters' positions in the room; hitting the solo player also darkens the room, as the fire on the candle gets smaller with each hit. Fortunately, the water from their squirt guns is visible in the darkness.

Ending[edit]

Whatever the players are holding disappears, and they line up. The solo player will do a victory pose while the trio sulks if the solo player wins, or vice versa if the three players win.
