Dr. Mario World - Nintendo

Nintendo’s latest mobile game, Dr. Mario World, is released on Android and iOS a day earlier than expected.

We were all set to grumble about Dr. Mario World’s egregious use of micro transactions tomorrow, on the game’s expected release date. But surprise! Nintendo’s newest mobile game is out now around the world.

Dr. Mario World takes the franchise’s classic puzzle gameplay and spruces it up with a cast of Nintendo characters playing the role of doctor. Mushroom Kingdom favourites Mario, Luigi, Peach, Toad and Bowser are among those on call, and they all have their own special game-affecting abilities.

Dr. Mario World is free to play but features in-app purchases called diamonds that can be spent on removing the stamina timers and buying the in-game coin currency. In all honesty, it’s quite disheartening to see one of our favourite puzzle games monetised in such a way, but according to those who have put some time into it, the game just about avoids being a complete cash grab.

Let us know what you think of the game in the comments section below.
