Mario Party Superstars:

Hammer Slammer is an Item minigame found in Space Land in Mario Party 2 and a regular item minigame in Mario Party Superstars, where it is unnamed.


This minigame operates similarly to a strength tester. The player has to hit the target spot hard enough with a hammer to bring the pointer up to the desired item. If the player hits the target too hard (usually resulting in the pointer bouncing back and picking Baby Bowser), does nothing at all throughout the game (resulting in the pointer falling off the pole), or lands the pointer on Baby Bowser, they get nothing. It is possible, however, to hit the target too hard and still get an item.

In Mario Party Superstars, Bowser Jr. takes the place of Baby Bowser, and the space theme in the background was removed in favor of a cloudy theme. Also, if the player hits the target too hard, instead of the pointer bouncing back, it flies off the pole onto the character, exploding and stunning them on contact and granting them nothing.
