Depois do sucesso que o Mario, ex-encanador - neste game ele é médico - obteve curando pacientes no Nintendo, nada mais natural que ele também mostrasse suas habilidades também no Game Boy.

Mélange de Tétris et de Columns, Dr Mario est une grande réussite. Le concept est suffisamment modifié pour être original et les techniques à appliquer complètement différentes.

This is a perfect Gameboy title, and is a brilliant puzzle game in its own right - it's sold over a million units in America! There's just the right amount of annoyance and addiction, and there's a huge amount of levels to keep up a constant challenge. I think it's different enough from Tetris to warrant purchasing, and it's easily the most enjoyable addictive Gameboy game I've played in months. Don't miss it.

Dr. Mario ist seinem Vetter Tetris auf den ersten Blick sehr ähnlich. Spielt man jedoch munter drauflos, erweist sich das Modul nach kurzer Eingewöhnungszeit als erfrischend neuartig. In der Masse der Neuerscheinungen in diesem Genre ist Dr. Mario eines der wenigen echten Highlights. Falls Ihr nicht völlig den Tüftelspielen abgeschworen habt, ist es für Euren Garne Boy die beste Medizin jenseits von Tetris.

Man ahnt nichts Böses - und wieder sind die Batterien leer; dabei hatte man doch erst gestern die Akkus aufgeladen. Klarer Fall: "Dr. Mario" hat wieder zugeschlagen.

OK, die Basis-Idee kann ihre Herkunft nicht verleugnen, trotzdem spielt sich Dr. Mario recht eigenständig und praktisch ebenso gut wie das klassische Vorbild. Grafisch ist die Grübelei freilich für keinen Meilenstein gut, aber das bißchen, was es zu sehen gibt, sieht ganz manierlich aus. Auch die zwei Musikstücke und wenigen Jingles holen keinen Affen vom Baum, doch dafür ist hier ohnehin eher das geniale Spielprinzip zuständig. Wer „Tetris“ mag, wird Dr. Mario lieben – und wer mag „Tetris“ eigentlich nicht?

Dr. Mario is a solid package that fits itself perfectly into the huge library of existing Game Boy games. With everything done right the first time, there is little reason for a Game Boy Advance update, except for more colors and a more efficient multiplayer system. If you haven’t played it on the Super Nintendo or Nintendo64, go to your local Funco and pick this one up for that upcoming trip you’ve been planning. With its inescapable brilliance and that familiar Nintendo license for fun, you’ll find yourself playing for numerous hours. I authoritatively prescribe this as a great boredom cure, to be sure. Next patient, please!

Clever attempt at a Tetris-style puzzler, but that doesn't quite work. You'll enjoy your first few attempts, but it soon becomes a bit of a drag.
