[edit] Introduction

Mario Party DS is the tenth Mario Party game and the only one to be released on the Nintendo DS, and was released in Japan on November 8, 2007 and in North America on November 19, 2007. In Europe the game was released on November 23, 2007, and was released in Australia on December 6, 2007.

[edit] Gameplay

As with most Mario Party games, an emphasis is placed on the game's multiplayer aspect. A new element to the series is the use of the Download Play functionality of the Nintendo DS to allow four people to play wirelessly using only one game card.

The game is played by using a "dice block" numbered 1-10 and moving your player accordingly. There are many things such as "mole shops" and "?" spaces that can help or hinder game progress.

[edit] Plot

The game begins with a very peaceful evening in the Mushroom Kingdom where Mario sees flying crystals in the sky. The next day, he shows the crystal to his friends. Kamek drops notes from Bowser to the crew that contains both an apology for doing bad deeds and an invitation to his castle for a feast. Mario gathers up Luigi, Toad, Yoshi, Peach, Daisy, Wario and Waluigi to go to Bowser's castle. Once they get there, Bowser uses his powers to capture and shrink all eight. The miniature eight wake up outside and go on a quest to find the Sky Crystals to restore themselves to normal and defeat Bowser.

[edit] Minigames

There are a variety of mini-games included in the game. For example, "Soccer Survival" involves trying to dodge soccer balls being kicked at you by a Goomba. "Rail Riders" involves sliding down a wooden banister and "Big Blowout" involves blowing out candle flames to try to win a race. "Shuffleboard Showdown" is a game when you have to dodge poker chips being shot by one player and the other three (which may include you) will have to dodge the projectiles. Others include "Globe Gunners", a game where you run around on a globe, shooting projectiles at other players, and boss minigames, where you battle villains from the Mario series, such as Bowser and Dry Bones. Some minigames also make use of the DS's microphone and touch screen.
