Dr. Mario (GB / Game Boy)

Game Profile

Dr. Mario - the prescription is fun.

It's Dr. Mario for an intense new challenge! Mario throws multi-shaded vitamin capsules into a bottle that contains an ugly variety of nasty viruses. You can move, shift or spin the capsules as they fall.

Arrange them to align with other capsules on top of a virus. If you can get 4 or more of the same shade in a row, POOF! They disappear! Destroy all of the viruses in the bottle and you progress to the next round where things get even more difficult.

Dr. Mario, with germs that are fun to catch.

That's true. And there'll only be a 100 point price difference between the GB and DSiWare versions... .

...that is unless Nintendo have the decency to offer this game for the price of a regular Gameboy game, rather than as a "premium" priced one.

Kind of not worth it since all Ambassadors get Dr Wario - and a fast paced Dr Mario minigame for free. Even people who arent can get the DSiWare version - so this probably wont get as much sales as they thought. :/
If they had released it at around when Japan got it - maybe then.

This is a pointless release. If any game benefits from a little color, its this one as the colors make it easier to distinguish the pills

If it exists and there's no licensing issues or anything then its going on the service.
