A budget-priced combination cart of two of Nintendo's classic puzzle titles. Dr. Mario/Puzzle League are recreations of two of Nintendo's most popular puzzle creations. Though Dr. Mario has already been released on the GBA as a Classic NES Series title, the version included in the dual-pack is enhanced specifically for the Game Boy Advance hardware instead of a straight emulation of the original NES title. Puzzle League was originally brought to life as Tetris Attack, but then rebranded on the Game Boy Color as Pokemon Puzzle Challenge a few years back. The GBA version is also enhanced for the GBA's much more capable graphics hardware.
Dr. Mario headlines the collection of popular puzzles, which also includes Panel de Pon, the game that inspired Puzzle League. These are all fun puzzlers that are easy to pick up but impossible to put down!
It`s round after round of contagious puzzle fun in the classic Dr. Mario style! Match up your Megavitamin capsules to destroy viruses and create killer combos that fill your opponent`s screen with cure-blocking garbage. If you`re a diagnosed puzzle fanatic, then Dr. Mario is the cure you`ve been waiting for.
In Puzzle League your goal is to line up three or more similar blocks to clear those blocks from the screen. While other Tetris games have pieces that require a perfect fit, Puzzle League has blocks that need a perfect match. As coloured tiles rise up from the bottom of the screen, you need to flip them laterally into rows and columns of three or more identical tiles. When this happens, the row or column you put together disappears. The game ends if the stack of tiles grows to the top of the screen.
