Pedal Pushers is a 4-players and Duel racing minigame found in Mario Party DS. This minigame is similar to Slot Car Derby from Mario Party and Mario Party 2. This minigame also appears in Score Scuffle as the eighth minigame in the set.

Gameplay[edit]

Players drive on remote-control karts in a toy racetrack, completing the minigame for coming to the finish line at first place in a lap.

To make the kart work, players must press a pair of pedals alternately or simultaneously to go faster, or else the kart will not move. To push each of the pedals, players must push the arrows and the letter buttons. Some ice slicks appear on the track's curves, therefore players must press slowly to risk spinning out and losing time.

The player who crosses the finish line first wins, and if five minutes pass without anyone reaching the finish line or if both players reach the finish line at the same time in the Duel variant, the game ends in a tie. In Score Scuffle, the minigame ends once all players cross the finish.

If both players get the same score in the Duel variant that breaks the current record, it counts as a new record even though no one won, as it will say "Tie" after the "New Record" fanfare. This also applies to the other Duel minigames with a record system.

Controls[edit]

  • +Control Pad – (Any direction) Press left pedal
  • A Button B Button X Button Y Button – (Any button) Press right pedal
