Shy Guy Smash!
During the minigame, Shy Guys pop in and out of the six Warp Pipes on screen. The player must tap the Shy Guys with the stylus to earn points. Tapping a Shy Guy breaks it and adds 1 point to the score. Starting in Tropical Island, Bob-ombs appear alongside Shy Guys in the Warp Pipes; however, tapping a Bob-omb will cause it to explode, subtracting 5 points from the score. Shy Guys and Bob-ombs will stay on screen for approximately two seconds before retreating and appearing in new locations. However, new Shy Guys and/or Bob-ombs will appear immediately if the player taps all Shy Guys on screen.
The goal score for each floor always starts at 25 points. Each time the player exceeds the goal score for a floor, it is automatically set to the player's new record after the minigame is completed. Pressing during the minigame will exit gameplay and return to the level select menu without setting a new goal score, even if it was exceeded.
