The April 27, 1990 Dr. Mario prototype is very close to the final, but still has a few cosmetic differences.
The title screen is largely the same as the final version, though the Dr. Mario sprite is not yet present, with an oddly-positioned blue virus taking his place instead. There is also an extra space between "2 PLAYER" and "GAME" that was removed in subsequent versions.
Graphically, the game is identical to the final version, with a few notable exceptions:
- Dr. Mario still retains his chunkier design from the PlayChoice-10 prototype.
- The yellow virus has been given a proper mouth, though the 8x8 playfield tiles have not yet been modified to match.
- There is no trademark symbol next to the Dr. Mario logo.
