Goomba Tower Takedown (known as Goomba Tower Attack in the British English version) is a boss minigame in Mario Party: Island Tour. It is unlocked and played on the fifth floor of Bowser's Tower.


Five Goombas scurry up together, making a Goomba Tower in a garden-like area.


The player must pick up fallen nuts and throw them at the Goomba Tower. After either the first hit or a chase from the Goomba Tower, the Goomba Tower will fall over, giving the player time to line up a throw that can possibly destroy all the Goombas. After all are defeated or one Goomba is left over, more Goombas will appear and form another Goomba Tower. When Goomba Tower's health is depleted halfway, the Tower will be one Goomba taller, and move faster. There will also be spiky nuts that deal damage if the player touches them. Once all the Goombas are defeated, the player wins the minigame.
