A Minigame is a feature added to Doubutsu no Mori e+ that is accessible via connectivity with the Game Boy Advance from the Wishing Well. Each day, the player can visit the wishing well and ask to play a minigame, to which the player can then download whatever minigame is available to their Game Boy Advance for play. Depending on the minigame, as well as if the player wins the game, the player will receive prizes to compensate for their win.
The minigame selection changes each day, with a total of three different minigames available. On Sunday, a random minigame is chosen for the day.

Darumasangakoronda (だるまさんがころんだ) involves the player, along with three other villagers, attempting to run up to a fourth villager, who has their back turned to the Wishing well. While this villager's back is turned, the player can repeatedly press "A" to run up to the turned villager. After a short while, however, the villager will turn around again, and if the player is still moving, the villager will call them out of the game. If the player reaches the villager, however, they win the game. The game plays very similar to "Red Light, Green Light".

The player must alternatively press left and right on the control pad to keep balance while also playing against the villager on the log with them. If the player defeats the villager, or the villager falls off the log, the player can continue across the log while the other villager must return. If the player reaches the end of the log first, they win.
