Knock Block Tower is a single player minigame found during the events of the Nintendo 64 game, Mario Party.

Introduction[edit]

The minigame takes place in the brown sky or fog, and stone towers appear in the background. The camera shows how the tower composed of wooden crates and Thwomps are positioned. Then the minigame starts.

Gameplay[edit]

The objective of the minigame is to reach the Treasure Chest at the top of the tower within the time limit of ten seconds. The player does this by punching wooden crates to bring the upper part of the tower down.

However, Thwomps also appear alongside wooden crates, stacked together. Their purpose is to prevent the player from reaching the top of the tower by moving their bodies to rise up or lower down. Additionally, the difficulty of the minigame depends on how the Thwomps and wooden crates are placed within the tower at the beginning of the minigame.

If the player successfully reaches the treasure chest, they win ten Coins. However, if the player punches a Thwomp by mistake, they fall off the tower and immediately lose the minigame. Alternately, when the time runs out, a Fly Guy steals the treasure chest, thus, also making them lose the minigame.

The minigame can be purchased from the Mini-Game House for two hundred Coins when it is available for purchase.
