Dr. Mario Cheats & Cheat Codes for Nintendo

Dr. Mario Cheats & Cheat Codes for Nintendo

Dr. Mario Summary

A man of certainly many talents, from plumber to race car driver to kingdom saver to party goer, the very icon of Nintendo, is also a doctor. This red-grabbed plumber is both a character in Super Smash Bros and has his video game series! Seriously, is there anything that the plumber can’t do?

Dr. Mario was released in 1990, around the time the hit game, Tetris, was released. Looking to cash in on the popular puzzle game format, Nintendo made this puzzle game much like Tetris, but not without adding a few twists and turns of their own.
