Shape Up is a 2-vs.-2 minigame appearing in Mario Party 10. Its name is a pun on a phrase that means "to develop or occur in a particular way," "to improve performance or behavior," or "to become physically fit."


The players are set in a playful environment, with an elevated platform. Players from both teams must work together in order to create a block tower that reaches above the dotted line. Shapes appear at random, and the players must use a shape in order for another to appear. If a team builds its block tower above the dotted line and lets it hold for three seconds, then said team wins.
