Hot Shots is a 4-player and duel minigame in Mario Party DS. Its name is a term used for self-assured and successful people.

Gameplay[edit]

Duel mini-game

The player must use the touch screen to aim the match at the faces of Bowser or Kamek.

Shooting Bowser gives the player 100 points and shooting Kamek gives 20 points. Toadette targets appear in this minigame, and hitting her causes the shooter to lose 30 points. The player also receives bonus points for consecutive shots without missing, shooting Toadette or shooting an empty target. At the end, the player with the most points wins the minigame.

Ending[edit]

Victorious characters perform their winning poses on a giant, golden arrow coin, while the players that lose will sulk on the green grass. If no one gets any points or if both players achieve the same score in the Duel variant, then a tie occurs.

If both players get the same score in the Duel variant that breaks the current record, it counts as a new record even though no one won, as it will say "Tie" after the "New Record" fanfare. This also applies to the other Duel minigames with a record system.

Controls[edit]

  • Stylus – Draw and aim

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Draw your bow with the stylus and aim for a target. Bowser is worth 100 points. Kamek is worth 20 points. You'll lose 30 points if you hit Toadette."
  • Tips"Shoot quickly, but watch out for all the Toadette targets!"
