Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Mini-Land Mayhem! is the fourth game in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series. A series of puzzle games featuring classic Mario characters in which the player controls Mario dolls called Mini Marios to complete stages collecting coins and medals and escaping from enemies and hazards. Like in the previous game - Mario vs. Donkey Kong: Minis March Again! - the player can't directly control the minis after activating with the stylus. Instead the player must manipulate the environment to make the minis reach the exit of the stage safely. The game features more than 80 stages and a stage creation mode that lets the player make their own levels and share on-line with their friends using the features from the single player mode.
