Helter Shellter is a general minigame in Mario Party: Island Tour. Its name is a pun on the phrase "Helter Skelter," meaning "in disarray."


A blue and purple Toad are seen picking up shells. The blue Toad's shell contains some pearls, while the purple Toad's contains seaweed.


This minigame has four rounds, each lasting ten seconds. The players select shells and try to collect the most pearls. The shells shake sometimes and contain four types of items: 1-3 pearls and seaweed.
