Dr. Mario World is a puzzle game in the Dr. Mario series for iOS and Android smartphones. The game was originally set to release on July 10, 2019[2], but ended up being released a day earlier on July 9.[3] It is a free to download game with in-app purchases that was co-developed by Nintendo, LINE, and NHN Entertainment, and was available initially in 59 countries/regions including Japan and the United States. The game supports multiple languages including Japanese and English.[1] Dr. Mario World is the second Mario game for mobile devices, following Super Mario Run, though it is the first free-to-play mobile game featuring microtransactions and gacha mechanics in the Mario series. Pre-registration for the game opened on July 1.[4] Like Super Mario Run, the game requires a constant internet connection to play.

Dr. Mario World takes advantage of the touchscreen controls of the smartphone, where players can drag capsules with the touchscreen to eliminate viruses, though the core gameplay is slightly tweaked in the single player as opposed to prior Dr. Mario titles in that players solve puzzles with a limited number of capsules rather than infinite capsules against a time limit. New gameplay elements include four introduced colors of viruses: green, light-blue, purple, and pink viruses, which occur mixed in the regular red, blue, and yellow viruses later in the game. Dr. Mario World features the debut of playable Mario characters as doctors than prior Dr. Mario games. These doctors have special abilities which help clear levels more easily. In addition, doctors can be paired with a wide variety of assistants, which constitute primarily of generic Mario enemies. As well as having a single player mode, Dr. Mario World introduces a competitive versus mode, where players battle against opponents online in a gameplay style similar to the traditional Dr. Mario games.

Story[edit]

The opening cutscene of the game.

A virus outbreak has occurred in the Mushroom Kingdom, infecting Koopa Troopas, Toads, and Shy Guys, where Dr. Mario hunts down viruses to save the locals. Dr. Toad instructs Dr. Mario on how to eliminate viruses in the first demo level, featuring only red viruses. By the 3rd (11th in version 1.10) level, Princess Peach notices that the Toads need her help while Bowser wants to take care of the viruses affecting his minions himself, so they join Dr. Mario as playable characters.

Gameplay[edit]

As with previous Dr. Mario games, the main and most common objective is to eliminate all of the viruses on the screen by connecting capsules of the same color to each of them, although instead of the capsules descending, the game's gravity is directed upwards with the viruses positioned towards the top of the screen. The player first drags a capsule from the bottom of the screen onto the field to use it, and can drag it again to move it or increase its "falling" speed, or tap it to rotate it horizontally or vertically; if there is an open space for the capsule to fit through, players may drag the capsule towards that open space as well. Viruses are eliminated if three (as opposed to four) or more of the same color are matched.[5] If a player uses a half of a capsule to eliminate viruses, the other half remains, and players can drag it around as an ordinary capsule if it is free to go up the screen. Players earn a rainbow capsule if they make seven matches that eliminate viruses; these rainbow capsules can be used in tandem with pills of any color to eliminate viruses, though they take up only one tile on the screen. The classic red, blue, and yellow viruses return, while new green, purple, light-blue, and pink viruses make their debut.[6]

Depending on the level, various obstacles may appear on the field, including Empty Blocks and Brick Blocks and viruses can be hidden inside of the Brick Blocks. Different-colored shells and exploders can also appear among the viruses which, when matched with capsules of the same color, clear out viruses on the same row and eliminate surrounding viruses, respectively. In the same manner of activating the aforementioned items, players can obtain a skill charger that fully fills out their doctor's skill meter. Viruses can be trapped in ice, which requires two clearings to destroy them, encased in bubbles, which shield them from capsules once before they disappear, or trapped in cages, being released only after clearing a lock on the field.[5]

Special items can be used prior to entering a stage and while in the middle of a stage which aids players to clear the stage. Dr. Toad gives out free items for a trial use, but after the single use, players need to purchase the items with diamonds or coins.

Game modes[edit]

Dr. Mario World has three main modes – stage mode, versus mode and skill summit – a daily booster (daily mode prior to its introduction), and events. Stage mode serves as the game's single player mode, while versus mode serves as the game's multiplayer mode. Versus mode is unlocked when players have cleared Stage 5 (20 in old versions). Skill Summit is unlocked when players have cleared Stage 20.

Stage mode[edit]

Stage mode is the mode players first start through and requires players to fulfill various objectives in order to clear stages. The most common objective is to eliminate viruses, though other objectives are include obtaining Virus Coins hidden in Brick Blocks. Stages are grouped into worlds, beginning with five – which are in order grass-, desert-, beach-, ghost-, and sky-themed – with more to be added in the future.[5] Each world has two areas, which have 20 stages in each area. Each world has its own set of challenge stages, in which players need to clear the stage before the time limit runs out. Unlike prior Dr. Mario games, players are limited to a certain amount of capsules per stage.[5]

In order to play a stage, the player needs to have at least one heart. A heart is regained automatically every 30 minutes, although players can purchase hearts with diamonds or clear a stage for a free heart (prior to version 2.3.0, only clearing uncleared stages will reward a heart). In the first 20 stages, players have an infinite number of hearts; afterwards, players are granted a max number of 10 hearts (5 hearts prior to version 2.3.0) where if they have less than that amount each heart takes 30 minutes to refill. Diamonds can also be used to obtain items, obtain new doctors and assistants, and to continue a stage should a player failed to clear the objective after running out of capsules or time (although only two continues are allowed per attempt).[5] Diamonds can be purchased through the app with real money.[5] When a player clears a stage, they earn coins, a heart, and a number of stars depending on how many capsules are left when they have cleared; they can earn a max number of three stars for the best score. If a player retries or fails a stage too many times, Dr. Toad provides the player with extra capsules to the player (previously he uses a free hammer on a tile for the player), starting from 3 extra capsules that will increase in number the more they failed to complete that stage.

Stage mode features Doctor's Orders, which are a list of extra objectives players can complete for bonus coins. Some objectives can be filled in both stage mode (which extends to Daily Booster and Skill Summit) and versus mode while others are exclusive to either. Once the Doctor's Orders objectives are completed, it takes 6 hours (20 hours prior to version 1.1.0) to receive new ones, while skipping objectives takes 1 hour (8 hours prior to version 1.1.0).

Versus mode[edit]

In versus mode, players pit against other human opponents online or against their friends, and it plays similarly to the multiplayer modes of previous Dr. Mario titles. The goal for players is to clear viruses in their grid to send viruses to their opponent's side; players lose if an object crossed the bottom line of the stage. When players clear viruses, their attack meter fills; when the attack meter is full, players can send row(s) of viruses to their opponent. The attack meter influences the amount of viruses/objects that must be cleared before they attack. Every doctor sends a different amount of lines of viruses for each attack, determined by a bomb with a number: for example, Dr. Mario sends 2 lines of viruses on each attack while Dr. Toad sends 1 line of viruses on each attack. Players can view their opponent's grid as well as a dotted line indicator showing how far viruses are down on their opponent's stage. Additionally, players have a chance to prevent opponents from sending viruses to them; the higher their doctor's defense stat is against a specific bomb, the likelier the attack will be defended against.

If the player successfully eliminated all the viruses on their field, they will send three lines of viruses to the opponent that cannot be defended against while at the same time resetting their opponent's attack meter. They also gain three more lines of viruses after they attack, so that the player has viruses to work with. However, if there is an object that is close enough to the bottom after all viruses are cleared, the object will go past the line and the player will lose. When both players have not yet reached a point where one of them has filled the board, there will be a warning. After a brief period of time, the field will be pushed down by one line of blocks that cannot be cleared, and will continue to do so at 10 second intervals until there are only two rows to work with.

Players are sorted into tiers, which serves as the game's matchmaking feature. As of now, there are 11 tiers: Tier 1 to 10, and a Rainbow tier. Each tier has different virus layouts, and in a few of the tiers, the virus colors are different from the standard red, blue and yellow viruses. Some objects are only present in higher tiers, such as barrels in Tier 10. In the Rainbow tier, non-virus objects appear when new lines appear on each player's field even if the appropriate assistant is not equipped, whether it is an attack from the opponent or as a bonus for eliminating all viruses. Players earn battle points if they win matches and lose battle points if they do not. The amount of points earned compared to the amount of points will be a net positive for lower tiers, but in higher tiers, the amount of points gained for the winner is the same as the amount of points lost for the loser. If players of different tiers are matched up, the winner of a lower tier they will earn more points than usual while the loser loses less points than usual, but if the winner is of a higher tier they will earn less points than usual while the loser lose more points than usual. When enough battle points are earned, players ascend tiers and the higher their tier is, the better rewards they earn for winning. The first time a player reaches a tier, they gain rewards and a 24-hour offer in the shop in which the diamonds and potentially other items offered is proportionally higher than anything else in the shop.

Players earn coins and/or keys for a battle box if they win battles. Coins are earned if the player has won 20 or less times in a day, and are rewarded with more coins the higher their tier is. Likewise, keys are earned if the battle box has not accrued enough keys yet, where it was 7 keys prior to version 2.1.0 and 5 keys since then, although at certain time periods the amount of keys required is reduced to 3. If they have enough keys, they can open battle boxes to obtain random loot in them such as coins, hearts, staff tickets, items, etc., including special assistants exclusive to higher tier battle boxes. In older versions, some of the battle boxes may contain viruses, which means that there is no reward if picked. Battle boxes can be opened once every 10 hours after they have been opened, but by using up to 3 diamonds (depending on the amount of time left), players can immediately obtain a new box to unlock. Diamonds can be spent this way for up to five times a day.

Once every two to three months, the game is updated to add a new season, which adds new tiers. When a new season starts, players earn 20 coins for every point they have over a specific threshold in addition to doc tokens for some seasons, before the score is reduced to that threshold. Tiers are held during the following periods:

Daily Booster[edit]

The Daily Booster, introduced in the version 1.3 update, replaces the Daily Gift. The player eliminates viruses to earn coins and doc tokens. Once all of them have been eliminated, everything on the stage is eliminated, and new viruses appear after a few seconds. When the player runs out of capsules and cannot make any more moves, an object reaches beyond the bottom-most row, or the player quits the daily booster from the menu, the game ends and the player cashes in their rewards based on the amount of viruses cleared. The player gets 4 coins for every virus eliminated, and one doc token for every 45 viruses eliminated. It can be played for free once per day, and can be played again using diamonds, with the rewards being received at a tripled rate: each virus rewards 12 coins and each doc token is rewarded for every 15 viruses eliminated. Once a triple-reward game is finished, the player must wait until the next day to play this mode again.

Prior to version 1.3.5, a single music theme plays during both the Daily Booster rounds and the results screen. After that update, the theme that plays during the round has changed, with its old theme only played at the results screen.

Starting from version 1.4.0, the Daily Booster received a few changes. The following changes are made:

  • Players start with 20 capsules instead of 30 or 33 capsules.
  • Each round starts with more viruses and objects on the field compared to the previous updates.
  • After all the viruses are eliminated in a round, two capsules are rewarded instead of five.
  • Only two colors of viruses and objects are available. Since the change, only red and blue are available but as of version 2.1.0, any two colors between red, blue and yellow are randomly selected.
  • The objective shown at the start of the first round will display infinite viruses instead of the number of viruses in the first round.

Skill Summit[edit]

Dr. Daisy as the mentor doctor with Dr. Bowser as the player's doctor.

The Skill Summit, introduced in the version 2.0 update, is placed next to Stage mode or Versus mode. This mode is only available after the player has finished Stage 20 in Stage Mode. In this mode, a few doctors are assigned as mentor doctors, and each stage will feature one of those doctors. Each stage in this game is called a summit, and there are four types of summits: Basic, Intermediate, Advanced and Special. For the first three types, players can choose a doctor of their own, but in the Special summits, players must have at least one of the two eligible mentor doctors before they can play that summit. In regards to the player's choice of doctor, players cannot choose the same doctor as the mentor doctor. For example, if the mentor of the stage is Dr. Baby Mario, the player will not be allowed to use that doctor. Similarly, variations of that doctor are prohibited, so in Dr. Baby Mario's case, Dr. Mario, Dr. Fire Mario or 8-bit Dr. Mario cannot be selected as the doctor.

Similar to stage mode, the player needs to have at least one heart before they can play a summit. In each summit, players are assigned various objectives and a limited amount of capsules to accomplish those objectives. Should a player run out of capsules before the objective(s) are completed, diamonds can be used to continue that summit for up to two times. Each summit plays similarly to a stage in stage mode, but the difference is that a mentor doctor is displayed at the top-left corner with a meter. This meter will fill each time a capsule is added to the stage, and once it is fully filled, the active capsule will be replaced by that mentor doctor's icon. The player must activate that mentor's skill before they can introduce more capsules to the stage, although other functions can still be used such as utilizing capsules currently on the stage, use in-stage items or activating their doctor's skill if it is filled. The mentor's skills may differ from their doctor's skill, typically with reduced effect. For example, while Dr. Baby Peach's skill normally change the next three capsules to rainbow capsules, Dr. Baby Peach's skill as a mentor instead only change one next capsule to a rainbow capsule.

After clearing a summit, players will be awarded Kudos, which are functionally the same as clear stars in stage mode in that reaching specified benchmarks in the score will reward up to three of them. Each new kudos obtained will reward the player with 50 coins, for up to 150 coins. In addition to this, clearing a stage for the first time will reward a player with a heart, no matter the score. Rewards can be earned by reaching a specific number of kudos, which can include stage items, doc tokens, staff tickets, 10% score boost in Stage Mode or even a new doctor. Players are also rewarded if they cleared all stages in each type of summit, which can include extra capsules boost in Stage Mode, faster skill meter charge, Staff Tickets and 100 doc tokens. The Stage Mode boosts earned from Skill Summit are bonuses specifically for Stage Mode (therefore, the changes do not apply to Daily Booster), and they last for 24 hours starting from the time each bonus is obtained, but it only takes effect in stages up to a specified World. The duration of the bonuses are cumulative, meaning that if the player has a bonus that is still active, obtaining another of that same type of bonus will extend the period for another 24 hours.

During the skill summit's first week, there will be a staffing event where two of the doctors will have a higher chance of being added, allowing the player to potentially play the Special summits as they require specific doctors. The only exception thus far are Dr. Dry Bowser and Dr. King Boo, who are not obtainable by regular staffing so for the former, Dr. Fire Rosalina is the only featured doctor while for the latter, Dr. Ludwig was the featured doctor instead. In addition, the shop will have two options for purchase each week for two of the skill summit's featured doctors: one is a purchasable Doctor Pack that contains that doctors alongside 210 (200 + 10 bonus) complimentary diamonds, while the other is a Referral that can be exchanged for 100 diamonds.

Each skill summit lasts for two weeks, after which a new skill summit will replace the old summits and the rewards and kudos are refreshed. Starting from version 2.2.0 when the 10th skill summit begins, obtaining enough kudos will reward players with medals, and getting all of the kudos will reward the player with a Platinum/Dazzling medal that contains a number that signifies the rank of the player that collected it.

Events[edit]

Clinic Event[edit]

For this event, the player needs to do the following steps for the event:

  1. Examine the patient.
  2. Eliminate the viruses.
  3. Clear all stages with three stars!

Once a step is cleared, the player earns rewards as well as a medal with the patient on it. The character depends on the current season:

Collect Clear Stars[edit]

In Collect Clear Stars!, the player needs to collect stars and receive rewards. However, they do not count if they were previously earned. These events are active when a new area of a world is added, meaning that new stages are added.

Most of the time that this event is held, the rewards gained are the following:

  • 5+ stars: 500 coins
  • 10+ stars: 1 Capsule+
  • 20+ stars: 3000 coins
  • 30+ stars: 2 Capsule+
  • 40+ stars: 3 Score+ and 1 staff ticket

Eliminate the viruses![edit]

In Eliminate the viruses!, the player eliminates viruses in stages and receive rewards. They only count in stage mode. Before Skill Summit was introduced, these events are sporadic but after its introduction, they are active when the skill summit is refreshed.

The rewards gained are the following:

  • 300+ viruses: 500 coins
  • 500+ viruses: 1 Capsule+
  • 1000+ viruses: 3000 coins
  • 1500+ viruses: 2 Capsule+
  • 2000+ viruses: 2 Hammers and 1 staff ticket

Power Rally Boost[edit]

Starting from version 2.2.0, Power Rally Boost is introduced, which can be activated after Stage 20 in Stage Mode is cleared when all the stage start items are unlocked. When Power Rally Boost is active, the player is able to use certain stage start items as a bonus without using up limited free items or diamonds. In order to activate Power Rally Boost, the player has to beat an uncleared stage without losing or restarting that stage. Once the requirement is met, they will be able to use Power Rally Boost that lasts for 48 hours since the first time the player clears an uncleared stage for the first time.

Depending on the amount of stages cleared in a row, the player gains the following boosts:

  • 1+: Rainbow Start (Changes the first 3 capsules into rainbow capsules)
  • 2+: Skill Up (Start the stage with a full skill meter)
  • 3+: Capsule+ (Adds 5 capsules)

If the player loses or restarts an uncleared stage, the boosts are lost and the player needs to start over. However, the streak is not affected for stages the player has already cleared, challenge stages or special stages, so the player do not lose the boosts if they didn't manage to clear them on the first attempt. The boosts are also lost if the player has reached the stages in around the last two added worlds, prior to the time when World 26 was introduced.

Characters[edit]

Doctors[edit]

So far, Dr. Mario World features 44 playable characters. Each playable character offers a unique special skill that can be activated during gameplay.[5] Players start with Dr. Mario when they first play the game and unlock Dr. Bowser and Dr. Peach when they have beaten stage 3; if players pick one of the three characters, the other two characters become unavailable. As of version 2.0.0, Dr. Toad is earned as another doctor when players have beaten Stage 20.

Players can purchase new doctors with coins, diamonds, staff tickets or doc tokens in the Staffing menu of the game (The exceptions are Dr. Dry Bowser and Dr. King Boo, who is as of now only available as occasional in-app purchases), although the doctors are obtained randomly and duplicates may occur. If players receive duplicate characters, it goes towards that doctor's skill level. Level 1 doctors require one copy, Level 2 doctors require two copies, Level 3 requires 5 copies, Level 4 requires 14 copies while the maximum level requires 30 copies. Players stop earning duplicates if a particular character has a maxed out skill level of that available doctor. Reaching new skill levels will make the skill meter fill faster for that doctor in stage mode, while in VS mode the skill meter will fill faster and/or increase the potency of the skill.

Doctor stats[edit]

The following are the stats for all doctors in Versus mode. The bomb displays how many rows of viruses the doctors can send to their opponents, the speed lists how many viruses or capsules are required to be eliminated for the meter to fill, and the defense represents the chance a doctor has to block against the bomb displayed. The rate skill meters are charged are hidden and differ from each doctor.

Assistants[edit]

So far, Dr. Mario World features 64 assistants. Assistants, like the doctors, have unique skills that aid the player. Up to two assistants can be selected at once. Like doctors, these characters' skills level up with play or by obtaining duplicates from the Staffing menu. Goomba is earned as the first assistant when players reach Stage 5.

Viruses[edit]

While the red, blue, and yellow viruses return from previous Dr. Mario titles, Dr. Mario World introduces four more colors of viruses: green, light-blue, pink, and purple.

Other characters[edit]

Worlds[edit]

There are 26 worlds total in the base game for Dr. Mario World. Each world is sorted into two areas, with each area containing 20 stages. Each world additionally contains three challenge levels which reward players with coins upon completion. New worlds are planned to be added in an update. When the player clears the first area of a world, they earn a coin or assistant reward. When a player clears the second area of a world, represented by a Goal Pole, they earn a staff ticket for use in the Staffing menu that can unlock new doctors or assistants, as well as a silver medal. If they earn all stars in a world, they earn a gold medal for that world; and clearing a special stage in a world rewards a platinum medal, 1000 coins and a doctor. In every special stage, there are blue, yellow, and pink viruses, except in World 13, where the red virus replaces the pink one. Several of the worlds' designs take some inspiration from the New Super Mario Bros. series.

More worlds are planned to be added in future updates.

Items and objects[edit]

Currencies[edit]

Image Name Description
DrMarioWorldHeart.png Heart Hearts serve as the players' energy meter in stage mode. Hearts get depleted whenever players attempt a level; once players has exhausted their hearts, they cannot play levels. At the beginning of the game, players have an infinite amount of hearts, but after stage 20, players have five hearts. A heart replenishes after 30 minutes, if they clear a level, or if they purchase five hearts with 10 diamonds. Players can receive up to ten hearts from friends as well. Players can purchase 60 minutes of infinite play with 30 diamonds. Extra hearts can be added to the total to exceed the 5-heart limit except through the 30-minute timer or receiving hearts from friends.
DrMarioWorldCoin.png Coin Coins are the common currency of the game. Players earn coins by completing stages and gaining stars, with 50 coins gained for every star achieved.

Every 12 hours prior to version 1.3.0, players are gifted with bonus coins or a bonus item for logging in. Since version 1.3.0, players can earn coins by eliminating viruses in Daily Booster. Players can earn bonus coins by completing Doctor's Orders and possibly earning them in battle boxes.
DrMarioWorldDiamond.png Diamond Diamonds are the premium currency of Dr. Mario World. They can be used to purchase a wide variety of items, such as items that help out players in stage mode to new random doctors and assistants. They are obtained mostly from purchasing bundles of them with real money at the shop or possibly obtaining them from battle boxes or flying boxes. Linking to a Nintendo account or a Facebook account the first time will also allow the player to claim 10 diamonds for each.
DrMarioWorldStaffTicket.png Staff ticket Staff tickets are used to purchase random doctors and assistants under the Staffing menu. Up to 99 of them can be stored at once.
DrMarioWorldDocToken.png Doc token (added in version 1.2.0) 100 Doc tokens are used to purchase random doctors under the Doc Staffing menu. Players can earn Doc tokens by eliminating enough viruses in Daily Booster or possibly obtaining them from battle boxes.

Stage objects[edit]

Image Name Description
DrMarioWorldShell.png Shell When activated, shells destroy objects to the right and left of them in that order. Shells will not activate another shell. Empty Blocks will block a shell.
DrMarioWorldExploder.png Exploder When activated, exploders destroy all objects surrounding them, within a 1 tile radius.
DrMarioWorldSkillCharger.png Skill charger When activated, the doctor's skill meters are filled by 60 points.
100px100px Brick Block Matching next to Brick Blocks destroy them or reveal something hidden inside them.
100px100px Empty Block Empty Blocks serve as impermeable obstacles. They can be revealed when a Brick Block gets activated.
DrMarioWorldHiddenVirus.png Hidden Virus Viruses hidden in Brick Blocks need to be revealed in order to destroy them.
DMW Handy Box.png Handy Box Matching next to a handy box reveals either a shell, exploder, a pop cannon (since version 1.4.0), an electric exploder (since version 2.1.0) or a rotating cannon (since version 2.2.0). These can be created using Dr. Toadette or Dr. Lakitu's skill, or possibly generated when the Random! stage item is used.
DrMarioWorldIce.png Ice Objects that are half-frozen require one match to remove the ice. Fully frozen objects require two matches to remove the ice.
DrMarioWorldCoinItem.png Coin Block Brick Blocks that contain three coins each. They are required to be collected to clear certain stages.
DrMarioWorldBubble.png Bubble Viruses and objects encased in bubbles float upward. They require a match when landed to pop and a second match to eliminate or activate them. They cannot pop if they are currently floating upward.
DrMarioWorldVirusCoin.png Virus Coin Coins that are required to be collected to complete certain stages. They are found behind viruses or various objects, and can only be collected if nothing is in front of them.
DrMarioWorldLockBlock.png Lock Block When activated, they unlock viruses or objects behind the cages with the matching color.
DrMarioWorldFloatieVirus.png Floatie Virus Viruses in an inner tube teleport to another part of the stage when matched. They require three matches to eliminate.
DrMarioWorldCagedCoin.png Caged Coin Coins that cannot be collected until the coin that unlocks the cage is collected.
DrMarioWorldDustVirus.png Dust Virus Viruses hidden in dust that get revealed when a capsule is placed next to them or when an object is destroyed next to it. If a capsule with like-colored dust viruses are matched, they are still eliminated despite not being revealed yet. Other objects might be hidden in dust instead of viruses.
DrMarioWorldCloud.png Cloud Clouds can hide viruses or objects, and will occasionally become transparent. When the cloud becomes transparent, the virus or object gets revealed. It will be gone if the virus or object behind the cloud destroyed.
DrMarioWorldCrate.png Crate Takes up to four hits to destroy, depending on its current state.
DrMarioWorldIceFan.png Ice Fan When an adjacent tile is matched, the fan turns on. Activating the ice fan again makes a random virus or certain objects that can be matched (such as a shell or exploder) half-frozen, and fully-frozen if the affected object is already half-frozen.
DrMarioWorldKey.png Key Keys are permanently enclosed objects within bubbles, and only float up towards a door in a vertical path. They unlock the doors which are required to clear the stage. Any obstacle obstructing the key's path must be disposed of in order to make it reach the door. Capsules placed on top of the key's bubble will float along and can be moved again while ascending.
DrMarioWorldKeyDoor.png Door The door has to be united with the key to clear it from the stage. Likewise, any object obstructing the connection between both must be disposed of.
DrMarioWorldColoredCrate.png Colored Crate A capsule match that share a color with the border of the crate are the only color that can destroy the crate.
DrMarioWorldCapsulePlus.png Capsule Plus Matching with this object adds that amount of capsules remaining depending on the number marked. Each time a capsule is added to the stage while the number of the Capsule Plus is visible, its number is reduced by one, disappearing entirely if it reaches zero. In challenge stages, the number signifies the amount of seconds added to the timer when cleared, and will reduce by one for every passing second until it reaches zero, in which it will disappear.
DrMarioWorldFlask.png Flask The flask fills when not eliminating stage objects after a capsule lands. The flask shoots out random objects (types of objects are different between stages) after the flask is full. Each empty flask requires five capsules to land unmatched to fully fill. It will not fill if it is not active, such as when frozen, locked or covered in dust. Small flasks that occupy one tile can shoot out one or two objects at once, medium flasks that occupy four (2x2) tiles can shoot out two or three objects at once, while large flasks that occupy nine (3x3) tiles can shoot out three or four objects at once.
DrMarioWorldBarrier.png Barrier Switches back and forth between on and off after a capsule landed without making a match. Barriers can be destroyed when they are currently switched off, which can be done by making any kind of three-color match. It is functionally a coin so it is affected by Dr. Baby Wario's skill when it's off.
DrMarioWorldBarrel.png Barrel Requires a match to damage it if unscathed, or broken entirely if damaged. Barrels contain viruses or objects in which the player can see if damaged.
DrMarioWorldBubbleMachine.png Bubble Machine When an adjacent tile is matched, the machine turns on. Activating the bubble machine again traps a random virus or certain objects that can be matched (such as a shell or exploder) in a bubble. Initially, this object has six spinning wands, but is reduced to three starting from version 1.3.1.
DrMarioWorldPopCannon.png Pop Cannon When activated, cannonballs will fire above and below the cannon, destroying objects within that column. Empty Blocks will block cannonballs.
Nocoverart.png Handy Bottle The handy bottle fills when not eliminating stage objects after a capsule lands. The bottle shoots out the labelled objects after it is full. Each empty bottle requires five capsules to land unmatched to fully fill. It will not fill if it is not active, such as when frozen, locked or covered in dust. Small bottles that occupy one tile can shoot out one or two objects at once, medium bottles that occupy four (2x2) tiles can shoot out two or three objects at once, while large bottles that occupy nine (3x3) tiles can shoot out three or four objects at once. Some bottles contain objects that are inside another thing, such as bubbles and Brick Blocks.
Nocoverart.png Electric Exploder When activated, these will shoot out three shockwaves that will destroy nearby objects.
Nocoverart.png Rotating Cannon When activated, these will shoot out a cannonball at the direction it is facing. If a capsule lands without making a match, each cannon will spin 90 degrees clockwise.
DrMarioWorldAsteroid.png Asteroid Asteroids block four-tiles worth (2x2) of viruses. When an adjacent row is matched, the asteroids get destroyed, revealing the viruses. It is currently unused.

Reception[edit]

Critical reception[edit]

At launch, Dr. Mario World received generally mixed to somewhat negative reviews. Critics were somewhat divided but leaned positively on its puzzle aspect and its multiplayer mode, but near unanimously criticized its overabundance of microtransactions and its online requirement. It currently holds a score of 58 on Metacritic based on sixteen reviews[7] and a score of 55.94% on GameRankings based on eight reviews.[8]

Chris Carter of Destructoid gave the game a 6/10, praising the accessibility and puzzles the game has to offer, but criticized the microtransactions, claiming "I've been playing mobile games consistently since Flight Control in 2009; so you could say I've had many encounters with energy systems and the like. The situation is definitely case-by-case, nuanced, and depending on the game the juice can absolutely be worth the squeeze. But seeing cute Mario characters reduced to this, with all of the psychological tricks in the book thrown in, is depressing. Just energy, just "you can finish this hard level if you pay," or just gacha would have been a lot as it is."[9] In a review without a score, Ben Bertoli of IGN expressed skepticism over the change in gameplay compared to previous entries in the series, and was slightly more critical of the microtransactions, stating "While it doesn't make it unplayable, to be sure, it makes it very clear from the get-go where this Dr. Mario's priorities lie." He concluded that it was still a fairly decent game to play for those who enjoy puzzle games.[10] In an even more negative review, Glen Fox of Gamezebo gave the game a 2/5, criticizing practically everything about the game; he called the puzzles "artificial difficulty" and "uninspired," and raised a larger furor over the microtransactions, stating that he never expected Nintendo to engage in such predatory practices.[11]

In stark contrast to other critics, Chris Scullion of Nintendo Life gave the game an 8/10, and praised mainly the multiplayer mode. While he agreed with other critics that the single-player mode was muddled with excessive microtransactions, he believed that the gameplay was fitting for a mobile device, and believed the multiplayer mode would be the game's highlight.[12]

On the Google Play storefront, Dr. Mario World currently has an average user score of 3.9 out of 5, while on Apple's App Store, it has an average user score of 4.5 out of 5.

Reviews
Release Reviewer, Publication Score Comment
iOS Chris Carter, Destructoid 6/10 "It's a shame Nintendo cut and ran with microtransactions after one misstep — their first, no less — in the mobile market. Super Mario Run's "buy the entire game" concept likely would have worked at a different pricepoint, or perhaps it was worth experimenting further instead of hitching their wagon to one of many runners in an already-bloated runner market. Instead we now have energy meters and gacha-gambling in nearly every mobile release; an extreme 180 compared to the original strategy. Dr. Mario World had plenty of potential to be added to my list of regular mobile games, but I literally can't play it as often as I'd like for that to happen."
iOS Glen Fox, Gamezebo 2/5 "And this is Nintendo we're talking about. We'd expect this sort of morally bankrupt behaviour from the vast majority of mobile developers and publishers that are out to make a quick buck, but not from Nintendo. But as bad as that is alone, our biggest disappointment is down to the gameplay itself, which is so bog standard and dull that we already feel like we've seen enough on day one. That's the most damning indictment of all."
iOS Ben Bertoli, IGN N/A "Based on what I've played so far, Dr. Mario World feels like a decent spin on the decades-old series. It's unfortunate that its attempts to keep things fresh and fun are a bit overshadowed by its overzealous options and annoying microtransaction-based roadblocks. That said, if you enjoy puzzles and pretending to have a medical degree, Dr. Mario World isn't the worst choice."
iOS Chris Scullion, Nintendo Life 8/10 "Dr. Mario World is very much a game of two halves. The single-player mode is fun in short bursts and short bursts only: lengthier sessions are impossible without regularly dropping real cash on it. Meanwhile, the multiplayer is an unrestricted delight, and the steady stream of available players means it could become your next obsession. Most importantly, both modes are built around a legitimately entertaining touchscreen twist on the standard Dr. Mario gameplay that makes plenty of changes, but clever ones that take the mobile format into account. It isn't proper Dr. Mario, then, but – assuming you can keep your wallet in your pocket – what it is isn't half bad."

Sales[edit]

Bar graph demonstrating sales and downloads of Dr. Mario World in the first 72 hours compared to other Nintendo properties.

Dr. Mario World has received 2 million downloads in the first 72 hours of its launch.[13] It additionally received $100,000 from its in-app purchases. While it had only half of the downloads Super Mario Run had in the same time window, which was exclusive only to iOS at launch, and it is the lowest grossing Nintendo mobile game at this launch window, Dr. Mario World's revenue is comparable to other games in its genre such as Candy Crush Friends Saga; Dr. Mario World generated 75% of the revenue compared to Candy Crush Friends Saga's $137,000 in the same markets.

Dr. Mario World has reached 5 million downloads globally and players have spent $500,000 on in-app purchases in its first week, which is comparable to the top 25 puzzle games in Dr. Mario World's genre; Toon Blast from Peak Games, for example, grossed approximately $325 million in 2018, yet saw just $90,000 in its first week.[14] Dr. Mario World charted as the #1 free iPhone app in Japan and #6 in the US.

  • Dr. Mario isn't the only one on call—Dr. Peach, Dr. Bowser, and others are on duty. Staff up with assistants like Goomba, Koopa Troopa, and Buzzy Beetle to help your doctors out with additional skills.
  • Doctors and assistants have various virus-busting skills, so experiment to find a combination that suits your style and pace.
  • Hundreds of stages over many different worlds are ready for you to save! New worlds, new doctors, and more will be delivered on a regular basis.

  • You're not in this alone—send and receive stamina-giving hearts to use in stage mode! Then, show off your puzzle-solving progress.
  • In versus mode, you can turn up the intensity on your virus-busting by challenging others to a one-on-one showdown—without using hearts!
