Tetris like game, endowed with a plot, requiring speed and accuracy of thinking.
The viruses that Dr. Mario experimented with were out of control and proliferated to impossibility. Now the doctor is forced to direct all his skills to the urgent destruction of his experimental material. It is achieved by lining up four or more cubes (vitamins) of the same color. Then the viruses are killed by vitamins and become useful (they bring you glasses).
Viruses of three colors - yellow, blue and red. Vitamins must be folded so as to coincide in a row horizontally or vertically at least four pieces (together with the virus) of the same color. In this case, the virus dies, and the pieces disappear. After the destruction of all viruses in the bank, the next level begins. With each new level of viruses it becomes four more.


  • Start playing at low speed to learn how to properly place vitamins.
  • First, lower the vitamins horizontally and only at the right time turn to the vertical position.
  • Try to create situations when two viruses are simultaneously destroyed. This brings a lot of points.
  • Having mastered the game at low speed, go to a higher one - in this mode, the number of points obtained for successful combinations increases substantially.
