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.
| April 27, 1990 Prototype|
A near-final prototype, and the first to feature the final Dr. Mario title.
| Late Prototype|
Similar to the April 27 prototype, but with a few more fixes and changes.
