Pest Aside is a single-player minigame found in Mario Party Advance. The name is a pun on "pesticide," a chemical that is used to kill pests. This minigame was the featured minigame in Desert Area of the Mario Party Advance website, where it could be played.

Introduction[edit]

The player is standing between four plants; one demands water, while another demands bug spray. The player gives them what they need, and the game starts.

Gameplay[edit]

The player attempts to keep the four sunflowers healthy by watering and bug-spraying them to earn points. If a speech bubble pops up near a sunflower, the flower needs something quickly so the player can make it healthy depending if the flower is thirsty or has bugs. If the player does not spray or water a plant, the bubble changes into a spiky bubble, meaning that the plant badly needs something to make it healthy. If the player ignores the sunflower or accidentally gives the wrong thing to a sunflower, the plant loses health. If a sunflower loses health twice, the player loses.

In Shroom City mode, the player must earn at least 500 points in 30 seconds to win.

Controls[edit]
