Coming from someone who has hated Nintendo‘s foray into mobile so far
This is an absolutely stellar game! Let me start by saying I was incredibly disappointed by Super Mario Run and the fire emblem game on iOS. Neither lived up to my expectations in terms of the fun factor, which is what I expect from Nintendo. When a Nintendo game isn’t fun, you know there’s a problem. Both were boring slogs that were painfully designed to wheedle money out of you. However this game is absolutely The opposite of that.
First of all, despite knowing how obnoxious this will sound I have to say the mechanics are robust. For a puzzle game, especially a matching one, there are lots of different options for how to solve a puzzle. Once you get used to all the different things you can do you start to ask yourself, “hey can I do that?”, and the answer is yes. On top of that it is free and it doesn’t push very hard at all to force you to make a purchase. For that reason alone I will probably make a contribution to a great game. Way to go Nintendo! Glad to see you living up to your legacy.
Oh and as someone who played the original Dr. Mario my entire childhood, I have to say it was very exciting that Nintendo didn’t disappoint.
I give 4 stars now because I received some extra lives, coins and diamonds. I’m not sure if this was to comp me or something everyone received. However it seems more fair. I will continue to keep an eye out to see how the game play is (hopefully improved).
The game is fun but the app takes your lives and coins. Whenever you play a timed level, you lose a life even if you win that level... I also noticed that you lose lives when you replay levels to try and get a better score (3 stars). It could be that that’s why the timed levels end up with me losing lives when I win. Either way, it’s ridiculous to lose a life when you win a level. Also, twice today while playing a timed level, the game stops itself (you see the turning pill) and even though you can’t do anything, you see the time clock tick down (in chunks since it’s glitchy). I lost two lives because of it and 200 coins I spent on an upgrade. It’s not worth it if I only get 5 min of play (or less) at a time. Then it takes 30 min to replenish one life. Why would anyone waste money on this app if it so easily gets rid of your lives and coins for no good reason. I think recently took a star away from the review because these past two nights I have received an error that the game is offline for maintenance. It was only a little after 9pm this evening and the message states it will be down until midnight.
Some parts ok, some not.
Ok I like the game overall and the game play. I even like the changes from original in that sense too. But I have a couple of issues. One, and I have noticed a lot having these issues; there is a major issue with loading errors and things during the middle of levels and it often takes away resources when you swipe out and come back to it, which is truly ridiculous. I mean it is a brand new game. Also, I do not like that I am stuck with my doctor. I feel like if it gives you 3 choices at the beginning, you should be able to switch between those 3. It is unfair, that you are stuck with your choice especially since maybe you didn’t understand at first and since the skills build so slowly. And to my understanding that’s the only way to get more I think? Hopefully y’all can get bugs worked out soon, otherwise I might not keep playing. But for now I will be patient.
Originally gave y’all 3 stars now dropping to two. Glad you fixed bugs, seems to be all right so far, but I now have a new issue. I leveled up my doctor to the second tier and I can’t get that tier unless I purchase it! That is ridiculous! Sad thing is I don’t mind in app purchases, but not if it is something I or any other player has rightly earned as an achievement-I am not made of money! And as I said I refuse to purchase sometimes rightfully earned! Still being patient because I love Mario, but if my patience drop much more, I will probably drop the game as well.
