Updated as of: 7/7/2020 11:00 p.m. (PDT)

Thank you for playing the Dr. Mario World game.

The following issues have been identified. We are either investigating the cause or are in the process of resolving them. We plan to fix them in an upcoming update, and we appreciate your patience.

Confirmed Issues

・An already cleared stage may be turned back to an uncleared status.

・The number of hearts may not be displayed correctly.

・If a skill is used at the same time as the stage scrolls while playing as Dr. Mario or Dr. Fire Mario, the position where the skill takes effect may be shifted.

・The pointer mark that only displays on Weekly Specialists the first time may not disappear.

Note: You can remove it by pressing the × Button to close the page.

・In versus mode, the opponent's stage displayed may differ from their actual stage.

・During the middle of a versus mode match, players will suddenly lose.

・Players eliminate all of the viruses in versus mode, but new viruses do not appear.

The following issues have been resolved.

Resolved Issues

・When you clear some stages, the score is lower than what it should be.

Note: Along with the fix for the above issue, we have also adjusted stage balance in stages 641-660.

・If you win 20 or more battles in 1 day and advance to the next tier while unable to earn more coins, you will be unable to receive Tier Bonuses.

Note: We will be sending out the unreceived Tier Bonuses to players affected by the above issue at a later date.

・In Versus Mode, Yellow Shy Guy’s skill (grants chance of defending against one-row attacks), may also work on some two- to four-row attacks.

・The number of doc tokens may not be displayed correctly.

・When the game returns to the title screen due to communication errors, doctors' skill meters will be unable to increase.

・If the hammer or boomerang items are used at the same time as the screen scrolls, the position where the item takes effect may be shifted.

・When a Facebook account has been unlinked, the diamond reward may display even though they are not granted as a reward for linking your account after the first time.

・In versus mode, when an assistant's skill activates at the start of the match, it becomes impossible to control the game during the animation.

As a token of our appreciation for your patience, we are giving all users the following items.

・Diamonds (10)

・Staff Ticket (1)

Note: The free gift listed above is available until 7/21/2020 10:59 p.m. (PDT)

We have fixed the following in regard to the issue where Versus Mode becomes sluggish with certain devices and network environments.

What is Versus Mode?

In versus mode, you can compete against friends and players from near and far at any time.

You can earn coins when you win a battle.

You can earn coins up to 20 times every 24 hours (between 10:00 p.m. and 9:59 p.m.)

The Versus Mode Screen

1. Battle Box

You can select up to three out of nine battle boxes to obtain a reward. There are even some assistants you can only get from battle boxes!

2. Battle points

Your battle points will increase when you win in versus mode, and they will decrease when you lose. You are more likely to match with someone whose battle points are close to yours. Note: You will not gain or lose battle points when playing against friends.

3. Tiers

The tier you belong to will change based on your battle points. Also, the first time you reach a new tier, you will be able to obtain the tier bonus for that tier. The following changes also apply based on your tier:

  • Initial placement of viruses
  • The number of coins received for a victory
  • Rewards for battle boxes

Basic Rules

By eliminating viruses, you can attack your opponent by sending viruses into their stage. If viruses or capsules pass the bottom line on your opponent's area, then you win. Attack as much as you can to gain the advantage!

Important Points

1. Stages shrink over time

After a certain amount of time, blocks that cannot be eliminated appear at the top of the stage, and the stage gradually gets smaller.

2. Eliminate all viruses

If you eliminate all viruses in your stage, three rows will be added to both you and your opponent's stages. Your opponent's attack meter will also be reduced to zero.

Doctor Stats


This is the number of rows of viruses sent to your opponent when the attack meter at the top of the screen fills and you attack. Each character has an attack stat between one and four.


This is how fast your attack meter fills.


This is your chance of defending against your opponent's attacks based on their attack stat.


You can activate these after eliminating a certain number of viruses.


Dr. Mario: Attack (2)

Attacks the opponent with two rows when the attack meter fills.

Dr. Bowser: Defense (2) 40%

Has a 40% chance of blocking Dr. Mario's attack (2).

Note: You can check character stats by tapping the character on the versus mode screen.


1. Eliminate from below as quick as you can!

If you hesitate, the number of viruses will just keep increasing. Prioritize eliminating the viruses closest to the bottom line.

2. Timing your skills

The timing for using skills is crucial. Watch closely for the best timing to use your skill to eliminate all viruses, or interfere with your opponent immediately after sending viruses their way.

3. Character compatibility

The combination of doctor and assistant is also very important. Try various combinations and find a strategy that works for you.


Rule Review

Did you know that you can view tutorials as many times as you want?

If you want to brush up on the basic rules or learn more about the nuances of virus-busting, revisit tutorials by navigating to:

Settings > Tutorials

Fill Every Space

In this game, if there's enough empty space, you can move your capsule through blocks and other capsules to fill it! If you push up a capsule against a block for a brief moment, you can slip right through.


Doctors have skills that you activate with the press of a button. Assistants have effects too! They fire off at random. You can acquire doctors and assistants via the staffing menu.

How to Get Coins

Clear Stages

When you clear a stage you earn coins based on how many clear stars you earned. You'll earn coins for each clear star, so aim to get all three clear stars! You'll also get coins as a reward when you clear an area, so don't fret.

Daily Gift

One daily gift can be redeemed for free every day at the shop. You can get coins, items, diamonds, and more, so be sure to check the shop every day if you can!

Doctor's Orders

Check the doctor's orders screen in stage mode and you can see what specific conditions are available for you to complete! By completing doctor's orders you can earn in-game rewards.

Battle Boxes

When you go up against someone in versus mode, you can get a key. If you collect enough keys, you can open up a battle box and receive in-game rewards, including coins. As you go up in tiers, the contents of these battle boxes will get better and better!

Medals Galore

There are many way to earn medals, including in-game events, increasing tiers in versus mode, clearing special stages, and more. You can equip a medal from the profile screen, so if you get one feel free to show it off!


Here are some tips to help you defeat viruses and save Dr. Mario's world!

Strengthening Characters

If you get a character you already have via staffing, it will increase that character's skill level.

As their skill level increases, their skills will improve! For example, a doctor's skill meter may fill faster, or an assistant's skill may activate more often.

Battle Box Characters

There are characters you can only get from the battle boxes you receive in versus mode.

You can't get them from staffing, so play versus mode to get these characters!

  • Tier 3 and up → King Bob-omb
  • Tier 5 and up → Banzai Bill

Advanced Techniques

Here are some advanced techniques to help you show those meddlesome virus who's boss!

Put Multiple Capsules in Play!

Did you know that more than one capsule can be put into play at once? When you pull a capsule into the play field, you can immediately pull out another. This way you can move them around freely or clear multiple locations at the same time.

Go for a High Score

You can increase your score by eliminating multiple viruses with one capsule. The rainbow capsule, which can match with viruses and capsules of any color, can help maximize your score!

Tips for Eliminating Viruses

You can eliminate viruses both horizontally and vertically, but you can actually eliminate even more by combining the two directions. Here's a few practical ways to eliminate viruses:

Eliminate in an L-shape
Eliminate in a T-shape
Eliminate in a Cross Shape
