The minigame in Super Mario 64 DS
|Appears in||Super Mario 64 DS|
New Super Mario Bros.
|Type||Mario's minigame (Super Mario 64 DS)|
Variety minigame (New Super Mario Bros.)
In the minigame, the player must use the stylus to place the Bob-ombs that appear in their correct sections. Bob-omb Buddies go in the red section, and normal Bob-ombs go in the black section. As the minigame goes on, more and more Bob-ombs appear and more frequently. If a Bob-omb is left unsorted for a while, it explodes, immediately ending the minigame; the player's score is then tallied, being how many Bob-ombs were sorted. Additionally, if a Bob-omb is put into the incorrect section, it also explodes, detonating the rest of the Bob-ombs in that section as well, ending the minigame and tallying only the Bob-ombs from the other section. Once 40 Bob-ombs of one color are placed in their section, the minigame pauses for a moment; the section is emptied and the 40 Bob-ombs are tallied up before the minigame resumes.
The background in-game is different in New Super Mario Bros.; metal flooring is used, but a blue laminated floor is used in Super Mario 64 DS.
Bob-omb Sudden Death is a two-player version of this minigame.
- Super Mario 64 DS: "Guide Bob-ombs to the black carpet and Bob-omb Buddies to the red carpet. If you bring in a wrong-colored Bob-omb, it will blow up!"
- New Super Mario Bros.: "Guide black Bob-ombs to the black carpet and red Bob-ombs to the red carpet. If you bring in the wrong Bob-omb, it will explode, and that's no good!"
