Bowl Over is one of the many mini-games in Mario Party 2 for the Nintendo 64 and Nintendo Wii. It consists of one character trying to knock over three other characters (disguised as bowling pins) by throwing and navigating a Koopa Shell (functioning as a bowling ball) down a meandering mountain path. The player who is trying to knock down the characters holds down one button, then releases it and sends it down the winding path. Afterwards, that character uses the analog stick to control the shell and make it hit the bowling pins.
The bowling-pin characters use the analog stick and buttons to jump around and try to dodge the Koopa Shell. Jumping is the only way that they can move, but moving the analog stick allows them to face the other direction. Using them together makes them jump in a certain way.
