Dr. Mario 64 (Nintendo 64) - Strategy Guide
Some basic tips to help you perfect your immunisation of the levels in Dr. Mario 64!
Frequently scan the area to familiarize yourself with all the colour combinations in your playing field. If you always have a good idea of what you need and where you need to put it, placing pills will be more manageable than working in the ER

By scoring combos, you'll drop ill segments (two to four, depending on the size of your combo) on your opponent. Whenever your rival dumps garbage on you, take out the trash immediately before more mismatched pieces pile up
