DR. MARIA - A rather nice Dr. Mario clone for the Commodore 64

Another interesting news story has appeared which is well worth a mention on Indie Retro News, is the latest *Public* Commodore 64 release of 'DR MARIA' by Sysantmin. A Commodore 64 game which is not only a clone of the 1990 puzzle video game of Dr Mario; a game originally by Nintendo for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Famicom, and Game Boy. But the game features 20 levels of arcade fun with an upbeat soundtrack. To coincide with this news, Saberman has done a video of the game in action.

Here is what the developer says about the game "Short Futures present a pill flipping puzzling production for the Commodore 64. Experimental viruses have mutated and are trying to escape from the research lab. Help Doctor Maria use her pills to destroy all the viruses before they spread".

  • Programming, graphics and sound effects by Ant Menasse
  • Music by Andrew Fisher, based on the NES soundtracks by Hirokazu Tanaka (Main Menu, Chill and Fever)
  • Virus Design by Cal Skuthorpe
  • In game font Cushion by Damien G
  • Title font adapted from Franxurter Totally

  1. All these great newish titles including Sonic 64, and now this puzzler. I like the Donkey Kong Jr game too, from a few years ago. Keep them coming. Need to show off my 64 Maxi.
