Pinball Fall is a luck-based Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9.

Introduction[edit]

The camera, starting at the bottom of the hill, pans towards the top where the players are standing while also showing the layout of the field.

Gameplay[edit]

Each player picks a ball out of five which he/she thinks will reach the bottom first. If a ball gets stuck in a hole, that player has to shake the Wii Remote to escape. Along the way, there are also mushrooms and rotating blocks, which the players bounce off of.

Ending[edit]

A dejected Shy Guy finishes last.

Players run onto a podium in different spots, depending on their ranking. The player who finished last goes to a corner, disappointed. In the Step It Up version of this minigame, the podium only has one block.

In-game text[edit]

  • Rules"Choose your ball, then let luck take over as you roll downhill. Be the first to reach the bottom to win!"
  • Controls"Hold the Wii Remote vertically. Point at a ball, and press A Button to select. If your ball gets trapped in a hole, shake the Wii Remote to free it."
