On the Spot is a single-player minigame found in Mario Party Advance.


The line of Whomps descends from above. The first one leaps up and lands, its back facing the player.


The player has to follow the Whomp's directions and poke its back in the right order in order to earn points within the time limit.

If the player accidentally pokes the wrong side of the Whomp’s back, they lose five seconds as the Whomp attempts to tell the player where to poke the spots correctly again. In Shroom City, the player must poke five Whomps correctly in thirty seconds to win; in Play Land, the player must poke as many Whomps as possible within thirty seconds; additionally, each Whomp cleared adds time to the timer depending on the number of pokes.
