Stage Mode

In stage mode, there is a limit to the number of capsules you can use, represented by the number in the top right of the screen. You will get a game over when this number reaches zero or when your next capsule cannot enter the stage from below. Once a stage is cleared you will receive stars and battle points depending upon the number of capsules. You unlock stages and worlds as you progress through this mode. The first 20 stages are tutorials and do not consume much effort to complete. As of now, there are 5 worlds of adventure with over 200 stages which are expected to increase in future updates.

Versus Mode

Versus mode pits you online against other DR. Mario world players from around the world in real-time, head-to-head gameplay. Win matches to increase your battle points.

  1. Cant enjoy the 1 v 1 because I know certain ppl are cheating. No im not a sore loser. There is a difference between a good legitimate loss to a sudden loss within 30 seconds of the game play. Another annoyance withim this game. The tier climbing. Not a big fan of working so hard to get to a rank and lose it all to depleted battle points. Not fair and it is utterly ridiculous.
