OK so I said I would never do a Mario game here but this is a red headed step child of a Mario game so I’ll let it slide just this once.

This game was pretty good, but certainly no Tetris, and it always seemed so sedate and pedestrian compared to the more hectic puzzle games of the era. I did like the Game Boy version a bit more than the NES one though, since it felt a bit more cramped and therefore had the pressure turned up a bit.

Dr. Mario has fake credentials and I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to dispense medication without a valid medical license, heck I don’t even think Mario is qualified to work in a chemist let alone come up with his own virus-busting pills. BUT HEY VIDEOGAMES.
