Mario and Donkey Kong: Minis on the Move is a puzzle game, part of the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series. The Mario Toy Company hosts an annual Mini Toy Carnival, and Donkey Kong and Pauline are running it. As usual, the player must guide Mini Marios to a goal within a time limit, but this time the path is occasionally cut off. The player must drag and rearrange tiles in order to make to complete the path and guide the toys through it safely. Most levels have three M-Tokens, and collecting all three gives the player a star. Once so many stars are collected, a new mode is unlocked, with four total modes in the game. Additional playable characters can also be unlocked by meeting other requirements.
