Ballistic Beach is a Free-for-All minigame featured in Mario Party 9.


The captain shoots a cannonball. The screen then spreads out to show all players.


The players try to be the first to pop both of their balloons with cannonballs. The left and right buttons on +Control Pad can be used to aim horizontally, and the up and down buttons on +Control Pad can be used to control distance. However, the players are allowed to shoot only one cannonball at a time.

In Time Attack, the player must hit five balloons. To achieve the bonus objective, the player must hit the balloons in ten shots or fewer.
