The rivals are chased across a stone platform by the solo player. Several Monty Moles look out at the chase, then jump into their holes. The rivals then jump into the same holes the Monty Moles did, and the solo player stops chasing them.
The rivals attempt to score 10 points by staying above the ground long enough without getting whacked by the solo player's hammer. A rival has to stay above the surface for only one second to score. When a rival scores, a musical note appears over the hole they scored from. Monty Moles also pop up intermittently. If a rival is hit by the hammer, they are stunned temporarily. If there are fewer than 10 character faces on the bottom of the screen after time is up, the solo player wins. If 10 character faces appear on the bottom of the screen within 30 seconds, the rivals win.
