Toon Slingshot is a Trolley minigame. It can be played by any number of Toons.

Objective

The objective is to slingshot onto the highest yielding point target. There are three rounds to accomplish this. To move onto the next round all Toons playing the minigame must have landed and recorded their score. Each Toon has an umbrella, allowing flotation and a bouncy landing. Trampolines are scattered around the course, allowing Toons to bounce back in the air if they land on them.

Toons start out on a slingshot and must press the arrow keys repeatedly to build up power to launch. Pressing an arrow key more than the other will cause it to be unbalanced and allow Toons to modify their direction. To sling, Toons must either wait for the timer to run out or stop pressing the arrow keys.

While in the air, Toons must open their umbrellas, which can vault them into the air if done early enough in the launch. If Toons do not open their umbrella, they will stay close to the ground. When landing with no umbrella, Toons will belly flop onto the ground. When in the air with an open umbrella, Toons can reposition themselves to land on a target.

Once Toons land, they will bounce around, increasing the difficulty of landing on the desired area. If Toons land on any target successfully, they will perform the dance animation and earn points. If Toons do not land on a target, they will perform the sad animation.

The following controls are default but can be altered from the Options menu based on the player's personal preferences.
