Get that 'aha!' feeling over and over as you guide Minis—toy versions of Nintendo characters—to the exit in each puzzling stage. Tap objects—like bridges and springs—with the stylus to perfect your strategy. You can create stages and play them however you want, unlocking even more content and experiences the more you play!
Donkey Kong's rivalry with Mario™ reignites in an all-out puzzle challenge! Tackle more than 80 tricky stages filled with clever puzzles and tough obstacles: girders, spiked floors, wind-up enemies, warp pipes, conveyer belts and more! Plus you can make your own levels, so there's no end to the fun. As you beat levels, you earn stars that can be cashed in to earn new parts for level creation. The more you play, the more you can make!
Changes after Miiverse service ends: While users will still be able to play Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars and complete all 88 levels in the main game, the Community feature will be discontinued, preventing players from sharing levels and receiving additional Stars. As there will be a limit to the number of Stars that can be obtained, not all objects may be unlocked from the Workshop. For more information on changes to Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Tipping Stars, please visit Support.
