A Mini Mario being launched at some targets

Mini Target Smash is one of the minigames in Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move. For this minigame, the player needs 10 stars to unlock the first level, 40 stars to unlock the second level, and 80 stars to unlock the final level. The player gets stars by earning perfects in the Main Game.


The player uses the Stylus to aim and launch the Mini Mario on the bottom screen to hit the targets that appear on the top screen. Hitting a target at the front of the screen gives the player the number of points that target normally gives, but hitting it from a farther distance doubles the points, and hitting from the farthest triples the points. Hitting a Shy Guy, Piranha Plant, or Donkey Kong score gives the player points, and hitting a Pauline target subtracts points. Additionally, Golden M-Tokens may also appear. The player must score as many points as possible within sixty seconds, though clocks may also appear which add ten seconds to the timer.


  • Level 1: Shy Guys, Piranha Plants, Donkey Kongs, M-Tokens, Clocks
  • Level 2: Shy Guys, Piranha Plants, Donkey Kongs, Pauline, M-Tokens, Clocks
  • Level 3: Shy Guys, Piranha Plants, Donkey Kongs, Pauline, M-Tokens, Clocks

Note: In Level 3 Donkey Kong and Pauline are on different sides of a target that will flip unexpectedly.

In-game instructions[edit]

Smash the targets with Mini Marios!


Mini Target Smash features a target-shooting range, in which you'll use a slingshot to fire a Mini Mario into the sky, trying to hit as many targets as possible in the time given. Targets farther away will be worth additional points. But be careful: some targets will reduce your score!
