Zany pill-popping madness with Nintendo's favourite son.
Dr. Mario was the perfect NES game. A bold, simple statement to start this review, but never has a sentence rang so true in the ears of our peers. This was a game that combined mad colours, infectious soundtracks and a delightful twist on the classic Tetris formula and is (in our opinion) the...

North America's Club Nintendo site lets you buy downloadable games with your hard-earned coins.

Here's what's available: 150 Coins: The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask
This week North American WiiWare gamers can finally get their hands on Dr. Mario Online Rx. It has tormented some of our readers that their cousins across the pond got to play this before them last week. Don’t worry guys, six days of extra practice won’t matter for too long in your online battles. This is well worth a look if you like falling block puzzlers. We gave it the respectable score of 7/10 in our review last week.

This was the day PAL Wii owners had been feverishly waiting for. Finally, after months of anticipation and hype, Nintendo’s WiiWare service has launched in Europe, bringing with it the tantalizing potential of ‘videogame publishing without frontiers’ – not to mention new headaches about internal storage space.
After a week of claim,...
From the very moment a Dr Mario game was announced for WiiWare we’ve been eagerly anticipating its arrival. Whether we’re supposed to call it Dr. Mario Online RX or Dr. Mario & Germ Buster, it doesn’t matter to us; we just want to play it already! It was a surprising move for Nintendo to not make this available for the North American WiiWare launch last Monday, but now it looks like we may have to wait a little longer still.
With only Star Soldier R and Ko...
With the US WiiWare launch fading into memory, it’s the turn of European gamers to start getting excited about upcoming downloadable content. WiiWare hits the ‘old world’ on 20th May, and surprisingly European Wii owners will be getting eight games instead of the six that arrived on North American shores. LostWinds and Final...
Since we first heard that Dr. Mario was coming to WiiWare there have been a few different western names for the game circulating on the net such as Dr. Mario's Virus Buster and Dr. Mario & Bacteria Extermination, both likely direct translations of the Japanese title, Dr. Mario & Saikin Bokumetsu.
Having checked out the new Nintendo Channel...
It's finally happening!
If you're familiar at all with the Mother series (Only the second game was released outside Japan, as EarthBound) you should know it's got an enormous cult following. In fact, EarthBound was the number one wanted VC game in the Nintendo Power poll just a few days ago! Fans have pleaded for Nintendo to release the other games...
The doctor is in! Mario takes a break from his adventuring ways and once again dons his stethoscope for a new generation of germ-battling mayhem. In addition to the classic mode of using vitamins to exterminate viruses, you'll find two battle modes and an online multiplayer mode where you can hone your skills against players from around the world.
Feel like challenging a friend who doesn't have Dr. Mario Online Rx? Then the WiiWare-exclusive Friend Battle Demo is just what the doctor ordered. Or maybe you'd like some help taking on those nasty viruses? Try out Virus Buster, where four players can simultaneously move capsules simply by pointing at them with a Wii Remote controller. Any way you look at it, Dr. Mario Online Rx is a prescription for fun that everyone can enjoy.
