Mario Party: The Top 100:

Jump, Man is a single-player Donkey Kong minigame in Mario Party 7 and a Special minigame in Mario Party: The Top 100. Its title is a pun on "Jumpman," one of Mario's alternate names during the development of Donkey Kong.

Gameplay[edit]

This minigame's setup is inspired by the original Donkey Kong arcade title, as alluded by its title and Toadsworth, who notes its familiarity in Mario Party 7. The player races Donkey Kong up a series of four ramped pathways, with DK's Tree House marking the finish line at the top. Along the way, the characters must climb ropes to get from ramp to ramp and avoid rolling barrels, which trip the characters and slow them down.
