Sick and Twisted is a 4-Player minigame that is found in Mario Party 8. The name of this minigame comes from "sick and twisted", which is said about a person who is exceedingly mean and mad.


The four players are seen jumping across two circular rotating platforms and onto a square stationary platform, with the rotating platforms lowering down to the ground as soon as the players jump off them. When the characters are all on the square platform, the game begins.


The four players must attempt to get to the end of an obstacle course consisting of multiple rotating platforms while simultaneously avoiding Bullet Bills being fired at them.

The platforms rotate either clockwise or counterclockwise and vary in color and size: yellow is smallest, pink is larger, and blue is largest. Each platform features white arrows that indicate the direction of their rotation. It does not matter who gets to the end of the course first, as the other players also win by getting to the end as well. If the players do not move fast enough, the platforms start to lower down to the ground, causing them to lose the minigame immediately. Likewise, if a player is hit by a Bullet Bill or falls off the platforms at any time, the player loses.

The players that are able to avoid all the obstacles and successfully reach the end of the course win.


  • The Wii Remote is held sideways and players use the +Control Pad to move
  • The Two Button button is used to jump.


The winning player(s) celebrate on a large square ending platform. Any losing players are not seen.
