Volleybomb is a duel minigame found in Mario Party Advance. When playing in Shroom City, the player faces Salvo in this game on the second floor of Duel Tower.


Both players have three lives and attempt to use Hammers to knock the Bob-omb at each other to defeat the opponent and make them lose a life. The player can either hammer it from the ground at an arc, or spike the Bob-omb by jumping and hammering at it. If the player misses the Bob-omb with their hammer, it detonates on the ground, causing them to lose a life. Additionally, the Bob-omb may also explode on its own after a while; the player whose side it is on explodes and loses one life. Eliminating the opponent results in victory.

  • Certain COM opponents have their own tactic. If the enemy is Peach, she acts calm in the first two rounds, but in the third round, she moves and jumps around constantly. Luigi is the opposite, aggressive in the first two, then calm in the third round.
