Connect the Characters

From the Super Mario Wiki
Connect the Characters

Connect the Characters is one of Mario's minigames in Super Mario 64 DS. It is very similar to another minigame, Mario's Slides.

Gameplay[edit]

The player sees four heads of the characters at the top of the screen and the bodies of them on the bottom. The goal of the minigame is to match each falling head to the correct body, drawing with the stylus horizontal lines between the four main vertical ones, creating different paths. Each head takes every horizontal path it comes to. Once the player has finished making the paths for the heads to match to their respective bodies, they can press the "GO!" button on the bottom to see them sliding down to the bodies. As the game progresses, the paths drawn previously remain, making it harder to properly match the pieces. After five rounds, the lines are cleared away, and the difficulty rises. Other characters' heads are added as the game goes on, starting with just Mario and Yoshi, but adding Luigi and Wario in later levels. If any character's head goes to the wrong body, the game ends.

The music for this minigame is an arrangement of the minigame theme from Super Mario Bros. 3.
