Pitifall is a Duel minigame found in Mario Party 6. Its name is a portmanteau of "pitiful" and "pitfall."


The point of the game is to swing from a rope and land on one of the platforms that the player cannot see. Three Shy Guys are holding three ropes. Both players have to pick one of them. The players swing, holding on to the ropes and letting go which is done automatically. If both players fail to land on the platform, a Fly Guy randomly picks up one of the players, and that player wins.


  • Control Stick – Move the cursor

In-game text[edit]
