Launch Break is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9. Its name is a pun on "lunch break". The concept of this minigame is similar to Pump, Pump and Away from Mario Party 3.

Gameplay[edit]

The rockets in the space.

The game involves the players fueling their rockets using pumping machines. An energy meter is displayed on the screen, and is split into three sections. When the pointer is in the first section, the players must press One Button as fast as they can. When the pointer gets to the second section, Two Button must be pressed. When the pointer reaches the last section, the players must shake the Wii Remote until the pointer arrives at the end.

Ending[edit]

The rockets blasting off.

The players enter their rockets, and they head for space. There are three phases where the rocket stops and has one of its stages broken off, so it is dependent on how well the players did per button mash session. The player who wins the minigame is launched highest overall. The background music gets to an outer space mix as the players reach space. Occasionally, a UFO is seen flying as the minigame is about to end.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Use the controls on-screen to build up energy in your three-stage rocket. The player who blasts his or her rocket highest wins!"
  • Controls"Rapidly enter the controls seen on the energy meter at the top of the screen: first One Button, then Two Button, and finally shake the Wii Remote."
