Proto:Dr. Mario (NES)
From The Cutting Room Floor
This page details one or more prototype versions of Dr. Mario (NES).
The prototypes of Dr. Mario are mostly from before the game mutated into its now-classic form and title. It was originally called Virus, with a much different style.
| Virus 1989 & 1990|
The earliest two builds, back when the viruses weren't actually the centerpiece.
| PlayChoice-10 Prototype|
Much of the Dr. Mario style is introduced along with a new Virus logo, but several oddities and unfinished bits remain.
| Dr. Mario Prototype|
Close to the final, now with the familiar name, but still not quite there.
