About two months ago I was in the toy store with my two sons. My seven year old Nintendo fanatic told me. "Dad Lets get Dr. Mario for mommy's birthday." Being a reasonable and normal dad I said "yea right, your mother wants this game." Much to my shock after I gave my wife her present she told me he was telling me the truth! Her sister had the game and she played it a ton. So when mother's day came around I picked it up for her. It is a cute game, basically a tetris variant is its most basic form (which is what she plays)and she loved it. It is challenge and actually involves a bit of subtle stratagy which makes it more worthwhile in my eyes, particularly in head to head compatition. The only problem is when I get home from work just before midnight I invariably find my wife in front of the set playing. Being a good husband I sit and play with her an hour or so. She loves it and the game is fun, but I NEED MY SLEEP and she is constantly playing it. It's worse than me with colonization! Nintendo you've created a monster, ok she's a REALLY CUTE monster.
Back in the early 1990s, after the world had gone mad forTetris, Nintendo put out its own variant of the puzzle game that, unlike most clones of the day, actually brought some new life to the original idea. Now the classic Nintendo game, with some improvements of its own, is reintroduced for the Nintendo 64. Rather than just twisting shapes to fill vacant spaces,Dr. Mario 64will have you matching capsule-shaped pills to fight like-colored viruses. Players earn point bonuses when stringing combos together.Dr. Mario 64comes with the original one- and two-player modes, and introduces a simultaneous four-player mode.
