Mario Party: The Top 100:

Revers-a-Bomb is a 2-vs-2 minigame in Mario Party 4, Mario Party: The Top 100, and Mario Party Superstars.


The camera zooms out while six Bob-ombs fall one by one.


Players stand on either side of a large platform with six buttons on each side. Bob-ombs will walk toward either side. Players must press the buttons to divert the Bob-ombs to the other team's side. If a Bob-omb reaches the end of the platform, it will explode, stunning players if they happen to be at the spot where the Bob-omb exploded. The team that takes ten hits first loses. If time runs out before this happens, the team with fewer hits wins.
