Mario's Slides is a playable minigame in New Super Mario Bros. and in the Rec Room in Super Mario 64 DS. It is a minigame obtained from the start in both games. It is categorized as one of Mario's minigames in Super Mario 64 DS, and as a variety minigame in New Super Mario Bros.


In this minigame, a Mario head will be moving automatically from the top of the screen towards the bottom of the stage. There are lines present on the screen which Mario will move across, but the player will use the Nintendo DS stylus to draw more lines on the screen to direct Mario towards the Power Star, and away from Piranha Plants. The player can also increase Mario's speed of movement by tapping the downward arrows on the sides of the Touch Screen. If Mario lands in a Piranha Plant, the game will automatically end. Once the player collects five Stars, they clear a stage, and the screen resets to a new stage, with later stages having different ways to increase the difficulty.

In New Super Mario Bros., there is a multiplayer version of this minigame, known as Vs. Mario's Slides. It is a 1-on-1 minigame, meaning it can only be played between two people. It plays mostly like the single-player version, but Mario will head back and forth between the two players.
