Gameplay[edit]

MP9 Minigame Spikedball.png

Players dodge big and small Spiked Balls as they fall through a field of pegs, which switch on and off as time passes. Any player hit by a spiked ball is immediately eliminated. Players are also eliminated for falling into the lava. As time goes on, the frequency of all spiked balls increases. The last player remaining, or any players remaining after 60 seconds, win.

This minigame also exists as a Reverse Minigame. The objective is for the players to try to be first to hit a Spiked Ball.

Additionally, this minigame also appears in Perspective Mode.
