Wing and a Scare
Wing and a Scare is a Duel minigame in Mario Party 8. Its name is a pun on the idiom "on a wing and a prayer," which refers to doing something with the hope of success even though there is little chance of it happening.
Players act as airplane pilots and take off from a stone platform, flying forward through a city suspended in the air.
The objective is to reach the finish first. Players must use the Wii Remote to maneuver their planes through holes or openings of various shapes in a series of walls. As the minigame progresses, columns, floating landmasses, and rotating holes are introduced as obstacles. If a player hits an obstacle or trap, their plane will rebound. If both players make it to the goal at the same time or if five minutes pass, the minigame ends in a tie.
Unless there is a tie, the minigame ends with the winner flying through the city with confetti falling behind them.
