In this puzzle game, the player must create a path for the Mini Mario so that it may reach each level's goal. This is accomplished by placing continuously generated tile blocks onto the playing field with the 3DS stylus. There are many different types of tile blocks, which can move the Mini's in many different directions depending on their usages and placements. The player is also encouraged to collect three "M" tokens on each course as well, in order to receive a golden star for that course. Other obstacles and elements are present as well, such as rotatable curved blocks, trampoline blocks, dumpsters for disposal of unwanted panels, and invincibility hammers.
