It's a new outbreak of Dr. Mario madness! Dr. Mario's back, packing a prescription for fun--and now the frenzied action of the original gets even more frantic with all-new multiplayer modes!

Other options let 'em race against time in Score Attack, target flashing viruses in Flash Mode, or test endurance in Marathon play. There's even a new story mode that pits Mario against pilferers trying to profit from his Megavitamins. It's a puzzling epidemic, and Dr. Mario's got the cure!

  • Infectious four player fun! the action is fast and furious as up to four players stack up capsules and stamp out viruses to create combos in a garbage-dropping free for all.
