Koopa Krunch is a single-player minigame found in Mario Party Advance. Its gameplay is similar to that of Tetris and Dr. Mario.


The player needs to match three identically colored Brick Blocks to earn points, making sure the structure does not get to the top of the screen. As well as Brick Blocks, Green Shells sometimes fall, taking up the same space as a Brick Block, but cannot be removed in the usual method. The only way to get rid of them is using a Red Shell to knock out as many Green Shells as possible.

In the Shroom City mode, the player must earn 300 points in order to win. In Mini-Game Attack, the player must earn 1,000 points to clear the minigame. In Play Land, as time passes, blue Brick Blocks come in and the player's color Brick Blocks go by a little faster.
