Mario Party Advance marks the initial foray of the Mario Party series into handheld gaming, exclusively available on the GameBoy Advance. Distinguishing itself from its counterparts, this installment is primarily designed for solo play. The objective is to gather all the scattered mini-games and gadgets across Shroom City using the Browser. Players can choose from four characters: Mario, Luigi, Princess Peach, or Yoshi. With 50 traditional mini-games and 61 Utilities – smaller, less intricate games with minimal interaction – Mario Party Advance promises a unique gaming experience.
The storyline unfolds in Party World on an ordinary day when Toad welcomes players. Suddenly, Bowser, accompanied by Koopa Kid, crashes onto Toad, causing chaos. Bowser scatters mini-games and Gadgets throughout Shroom City. As Toad and the player embark on a journey to restore order, the adventure begins. Players commence with four Mushrooms, earning more by winning mini-games every three turns. The game concludes when Mushrooms are exhausted.
