Mario Party 4 is the fourth installment in Nintendo's Mario Party series. The game was developed by Hudson Soft and published by Nintendo for their GameCube system on October 21, 2002 in North America. It played similarly to its predecessors while adding new characters, boards, and mini-games.

Before the game's release, the two companies created a promotional flash game to coincide with it. The game stayed active for around three or four years after Mario Party 4's release.

Gameplay

The game was essentially a stripped down version of a typical Mario Party game, with only one player allowed, five boards, and a handful of minigames. Winning the minigames and landing on blue spaces would give you coins, which would allow you to buy things such as wallpapers and screensavers themed around Mario Party 4. There were also special spaces that showed a screenshot of the game and gave some info on what was going on in it.

Availability

While the site was taken down, it was eventually archived via archive.org's Wayback Machine. While only some character combinations work (player character plus the "host" which corresponds with each board), the game is the same for every character, and access to one board means you can play on all of them due to there being a board selector. However, many screenshots in the info spaces don't load and the store items can't be downloaded.

I went through the archives and I got it to work on this one choosing Yoshi as the player and Toad as the host: https://web....oparty4.com/

And heres the game url: https://web....mp;host=toad

I'm not sure if other combinations work but is this enough to be considered found?

If there's a God out there, I hope he rewards you generously. This is a game I didn't think anyone cared about or played, and it's been 12 years since the last time I did. Who would've thought clicking all the options would've found one that worked? I tried at least 20 that didn't work at all.

You're a hero, Sans. Tonight's gonna be a sentimental journey.

Uhh... The game seems to allow you to do the other hosts just fine, even if they aren't archived to directly go to that host. Wouldn't this mean that we only need links to one of each character to have all potential combinations?

You say your going to make a video about this game with the intent of letting people know about it, then you admit you have a insanely tiny number of subscribers and have to ask people to subscribe to you? I have several questions, but mainly: asking people to subscribe to you? Really?
