A Party Game for the Wii, released in July 2010 in Japan and October 2010 elsewhere, Wii Party is a descendant of the Mario Party games with Miis in place of Super Mario Bros. characters. Its modes include a couple of Board Games, a Wheel of Fortune-like game show mode, Bingo, a version of hide and seek, and some longer puzzle games, among others.
Wii Party includes examples of:
- Door Roulette: Meet And Greet, a co-operative minigame where two players simply have to open the door to the next room in order to meet in the middle. And avoid opening the other doors.
- Harder Than Hard: Expert and Master, which have to be unlocked. Expert will give you a run for your money. Master will leave you in the dust on any non-luck-based minigame.
- Luck-Based Mission: No matter how skilled you are at the minigames, how well you do in the big picture is heavily influenced by random factors. And that's even if you're NOT playing Bingo.
- Also, some missions are entirely luck-based. The most prevalent is Lucky Launch: choose the right firework out of four, and you win.
- Spiritual Successor: Beyond the obvious similarities to Mario Party, the structure of the Globe Trot mode is similar to Sonic Shuffle, another licensed party game made by Hudson.
- Waggle: Some minigames simply require that you shake the Wiimote as quickly as possible.
