Swervin' Skies is a 1-vs.-3 minigame that is found in Mario Party 8.


The team of three is shown flying airplanes with a sphere target on each wing. The solo player flies up in a plane with a gun on each wing behind the trio and shoots six bullets that fly past the middle team player.


The solo player's goal is to shoot down the team players, while the team players' goal is to avoid the solo player's bullets. The solo player must press A Button or B Button to shoot the two targets on each team player's plane as they fly around. A team player is downed if both targets on their plane are hit. The solo player wins if they shoot down all three team players' planes, while the team players win if at least one of them can survive for 30 seconds.


If the solo player wins, the camera pans to face them as they wave. If the team players win, they wave as their planes fly onscreen.
