Mini Bowling

Mini Bowling is a Gaddget in Mario Party Advance. It can be obtained by completing the quest Jungle Jive.

The Game Boy Advance must be rotated upright to play this minigame. Mini Bowling can be played with multiple players. Players must try to knock all the pins down. The up and down directions (or left and right, depending on the view) are used to aim the direction the bowling ball is tossed. The left direction (or up, depending on the view) on the +Control Pad is used to toss the bowling ball. If a player presses L Button or R Button, they can change the color of the bowling ball to either black, blue, green, yellow, or red. Like in a standard game of bowling, the player can get a split, a spare, or a strike.
