Dr. Mario World hit the Google Play Store and Apple App store July 9th, a day earlier than expected. Weighing in at 192 MB, this slightly hefty download should be no problem to download over LTE but you may want to wait till you’re on WiFi. While the game is free to play, it does offer in app purchases for diamonds (needed to use items and refill heart meter) and tier packs (which we are unsure of just yet).
Fans of the Dr. Mario game of old will be pleasantly surprised to hear a familiar soundtrack and see familiar characters. This iteration feels a lot less like Tetris as the originals did. Capsules no longer fall from the top but float up from the bottom and can be moved side to side and up by dragging.
We’ve had a little bit of time with Dr. Mario World so far it seems to be a nice way to waste some time with quick pick up games. The initial load time is a bit of a drag even on an Apple iPhone XS Max but once you are in the game is snappy. I did find myself waiting impatiently for games to start with all the flashy graphics. At the time of this writing, Dr. Mario World is currently the #1 puzzle game in the US Apple App store and #2 overall free game with an average rating of 4.1 out of 5.
