The goal of this game is for the player to get the shell to face right side up before Mario or Luigi kicks it. In order to do that, the player needs to tilt the system to get the shell to roll and rise upward. There are three levels, with each featuring a shell of a different enemy.
- Level 1 – This level features a green Koopa Troopa, which is easy to get up.
- Level 2 – This level features a red Koopa Troopa, which is harder to get up.
- Level 3 – This level features a Buzzy Beetle, which is just as hard to get up as the previous one, plus the player must watch Luigi's moves.
- In Portuguese, this game's name is called Vire o casco, meaning "Turn the shell".
