Mario Party Advance is a party game released for the Game Boy Advance in 2005. The game is a part of the Mario Party series and features a variety of mini-games and party board games for players to enjoy.

Game play

One of the strengths of Mario Party Advance is its mini-games. The game features over 60 mini-games, each with its own unique objective and controls. The mini-games are fun and varied, ranging from simple reflex tests to more complex challenges that require strategy and skill.


The game's party board game mode is also well-designed. The game features a variety of boards with different layouts and objectives, adding to the game's replay value. The game's board game mode also features a variety of items and power-ups, adding an extra layer of strategy to the game.

The game's controls

The game's controls are simple and intuitive, with players using the D-pad and buttons to navigate menus and play mini-games. The game also features local multiplayer, allowing players to compete against each other in a variety of mini-games and board game modes.

One downside of the game is its lack of online multiplayer. While the game does feature local multiplayer, the lack of online multiplayer may be disappointing for some players.

Graphics And Sound

The game's graphics and sound are serviceable but not exceptional. The game features colorful and vibrant graphics, but they can be somewhat pixelated on the Game Boy Advance's small screen. The game's sound effects and music are also simple but effective.


Mario Party Advance is a fun and enjoyable party game that is a great addition to the Mario Party series. While it may lack some of the features of later games in the series, its mini-games and board game modes provide hours of fun and entertainment for players.
