The latest Nintendo mobile game, Dr. Mario World, is finally here! The mobile puzzle game is a modern approach to the old classic, Dr. Mario, the original title that was released in 1990 for the Nintendo Entertainment System. Now, almost three decades later, the game gives the same feel but has undergone some new adjustments to level up to the current mobile games.
The Latest Dr. Mario World Update
Dr. Mario World was open to pre-registrations on the Play Store since June the 18th. The title went live approximately three weeks later but hasn’t received any new update since then.
Now, Dr. Mario World 1.0.1, or ‘Alpha 0.1.10-real-matcha-190703’ update is available on the Play Store. The first release introduced the game as a way to match puzzles in order to annihilate troublesome viruses.
About Dr. Mario World
The gameplay depicts Mario fighting to stop viruses. To eliminate them, Mario or other characters have to use a limited number of color-coded capsules on the right viruses. The aim of the game is to remove all the viruses before finishing the capsules. Other levels of the game introduce obstacles, such as Koopa shells and brick blocks.
Dr. Mario World is mainly a single-player game. Control the character by using taps and swipes. There is also a multiplayer status to the game. In stage mode, you can see the progress your friends have made. Additionally, there is a VS mode that matches you to play against a real-life gamer.
Other Details About Dr. Mario World
Dr. Mario World is free to download and play. However, like most of the other games, there are in-game purchases. These microtransactions are optional, as you can play the game without spending any money.
