Proto:Dr. Mario (NES)
From The Cutting Room Floor
This page details a prototype version 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.
The earliest build, back when the viruses weren't actually the centerpiece...or moving.
Dated February 2, 1990. Now with animated viruses and slightly more realistic-looking clipboards!
Much of the Dr. Mario style is introduced along with a new Virus logo, but several oddities and unfinished bits remain.

Close to the final, now with the familiar name, but still not quite there.
