Spin the Bubble is a General minigame from Mario Party: Island Tour. The name is a pun on the romantic party game "Spin the Bottle".

Introduction[edit]

A Mario enemy is seen inside a bubble, and it is shown matching the touch screen. After the match is made, the enemy comes out of the bubble, and goes to the Touch Screen. The box closes, and another one comes into the screen. The minigame begins.

Gameplay[edit]

The player must turn the system to match the silhouette shown at the bottom of the Touch Screen. If done so, the enemy inside the capsule goes into the box, and another one comes into play. The player who has the most points after three rounds wins.

Controls[edit]

  • Tilt motion control – Turn capsule

In-game text[edit]
