Differences[edit]

The title screen of Dr. Wario.
  • Dr. Wario is the main character.
  • The Viruses look different. In contrast, the real Virus sprites are used in the Dr. Mario microgame.
  • There is no 2-player mode.
  • The player can press Down to accelerate the falling pills after a line clear.
  • The bottle is smaller, only thirteen cells tall instead of sixteen. As such, each level uses a lower number of Viruses than Dr. Mario.
  • All music and sounds used are similar to the originals, but somewhat "knockoff-ish."
  • The level/speed-select menu does not feature a music option; consequently, there is no way to turn the music off.
  • A knockoff version of "Chill" is used during each level, but a knockoff of the "Fever" clear music is used upon beating each level. The "Fever" level music and "Chill" clear music are not used at all during the game.
