Having been released in 2019, Dr. Mario World was the latest entry for the Dr. Mario franchise and felt right at home on mobile devices. While it may not have been entirely profitable for Nintendo, it did deliver some cool takes on characters (who could ever forget Dr. Dolphin or Dr. Goomba Tower). Did you enjoy the game? Sad about it closing its doors? Let us know how you feel below!
