Use new power-ups in the ultimate Dr. Mario™ game on the go!

Puzzle fans, here's your fix: the ultimate Dr. Mario game—on the go! Play classic-style, Dr. Luigi-style, or in Virus Buster mode, using new power-ups called Miracle Cures that will have you and your friends wiping out those pesky viruses like the doc himself.

Dr. Mario is back with a new arsenal of treatments. In the Miracle Cure Laboratory, you'll take on preset challenges with normal, two-sided pills and L-shaped pills. To aid your recovery, you'll fill a special gauge to earn Miracle Cures that will help alleviate your ailments. Pop in powerful Blasters to disinfect a section of the bottle, or apply cleverly placed Zappers to wipe out entire rows or columns. Then, self-prescribe some Miracle Cure power-ups in endless Dr. Mario or Dr. Luigi game modes to balance out your intake. A caution from the doctor: challenging your friends locally or online may be habit forming.
