Description

Barrel, or Barrel Game, is a minigame in Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga and it’s remake, and it’s remake. It takes place in the S.S. Chuckola. When Mario and Luigi try to go in the room with a Beanstar piece, a S.S. Chuckola Crew member says they can’t get in without a Membership Card. In another room, a skeleton named Bink offers them a job of pushing barrels, as a minigame. The minigame has a 6x6 grid of red and blue barrels. The objective is to slide the barrels so that an entire row or column is only one color, with the time limit of three minutes. When an entire line is cleared, the brothers earn one point, and can earn more points for each additional line cleared, with four points for two lines, and eight points for three lines, and even sixteen for four lines. After completion, Bink rewards the bros. with a Membership Card and 1-9 Hee Beans.
