Shell Shocked is a 4-player minigame in Mario Party 2 and reappears in Mario Party: The Top 100, a minigame compilation title.

The term "shell shock" is used to describe a disturbance caused by a prolonged exposure to active warfare.

Gameplay[edit]

Shell Shocked as seen in Mini-Game Coaster

The players attempt to knock off the rest of the players by shooting cannonballs with their tanks. Players can also use a lob shot if a player is behind a Warp Pipe. In Mario Party 2, there are three randomly selected levels, which can be chosen by players in Mini-Game Land.

The levels vary depending on how many Warp Pipes are placed as obstacles.

  • Stage 1: One pipe in the center.
  • Stage 2: One pipe in the center of each wall. This is the stage used in The Top 100.
  • Stage 3: One pipe in the center, with 8 pipes surrounding it.

In the Mini-Game Coaster, the stage that is used is depended on the skill level that is played; Stage 2 is used for for Normal and Stage 1 is used for Hard. This is also the final minigame, where the human player plays against a team of three Koopa Kids, with Stage 3 being used.

In Mario Party 2, if all four players are knocked out of the game or the time limit reaches zero, the minigame ends in a draw.
