    Just right for every skill level

    You have got to love the old gen games. So simplistic yet incredibly enjoyable. That is the way that I feel about this game. It is very easy to figure out. The game is loosely based Tetris. You have two sided pills ... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Dr. Mario

  • User Rating:7.8

    There is Dr.Mario for Nes and Snes but in the middle is Dr.Mario for Gameboy. The game has all the same stuff as the Nes one did but just less graphics and little stuff like that. Let me tell you the modes, one-player mo... Read Full Review

    Old graphics but the fun factor is high

    I remember playing this game trying to get as far as I could, as fast as I could, while watching TV. It is the perfect game to play on the run, or just to pick up and play, because you do not have to remember anything pr... Read Full Review

    *****The Doctor Will See You Now!*****

    After all the years I've owned a GameBoy (given to me when I was six by an obnoxious spoiled cousin), an exhaustive write-up of Doctor Mario was inevitable. It was one of the first games I bought with my meager allowance... Read Full Review

    A great example,of a simple concept,turned into a fun and addicting game.

    With the puzzle genre already over-populated in the Gameboy's case,its hard for anything in the genre to really stand out.Though Dr.Mario does stand out.I'll begin with the presentation.Top Notch.The game is really detai... Read Full Review

    I love this game. So much I bought the GBA version and own 2 copies of this one.

    I love this game. It's just so addicting. Maybe that's why it features pills. It's really simple and it's quite similar to Tetris, another great game. You have to destroy viruses by matching up 3 of the pill that matches... Read Full Review

    With its lack of graphical fine-tuning, the GameBoy version of Dr. Mario is simply not up to par with other versions.

    Firstly, this reviewer has to describe a musing that this reviewer cannot resist putting into this article. This reviewer suspects that this game may have been a result of concerned parents voicing their opposition at th... Read Full Review

    An engageing portable game!

    This is a highly addictive game for the original Gameboy. It may look like Tetris at first but the play is very different, and it is a bit easier to play at low levels. You have two sided pills with a mixture of four ... Read Full Review

    Old but classic

    I originally played this on NES, but the game boy version is pretty close as well. Consider this a review for both. Dr. Mario is a puzzle game where you want to take out the viruses with pills that you drop from the ... Read Full Review
