Star Turn (Starlight Connection in the British English version) is a puzzle minigame in Mario Party: Island Tour.


In this minigame, the player has to create the given number of continuous paths on the grid that box in all Super Stars by rotating the grid tiles any amount of times. If the player creates continuous path(s), they are awarded up to 280 points and a time bonus of up to 50 seconds depending on how long it takes them to make the right move. As the player progresses through each level, the gameplay becomes more difficult; every fifth level increases the size of the grid, and every tenth level increases the number of continuous paths the player has to make. The minigame ends once the player runs out of time.
