Hammer Slammer requires the player to repeatedly tap the A-button to raise a hammer to gain a prize. If the button is not tapped enough, the puck will not rise and will simply land on the Baby Bowser square. The result will also be the same if the button is tapped too much, causing the puck to hit the bell and fall back down to the same square. The best prize is located closer to the bell, requiring just enough pressure to hit the puck, so it does not hit the bell.
- (Hold) - Raise hammer
- (Release) - Swing hammer
- Hammer Slammer is clearly inspired by high striker, otherwise known as the strength tester or strongman game, often seen at carnivals.
