Hearts are an important resource in Dr. Mario World, meaning you’ll need to learn how to get more once you run out. Every level costs 1 Heart to play, and if you’re able to beat the level, you’ll receive a Heart. If you’re able to beat levels, Hearts shouldn’t be a problem for you to manage. However, if you run into a particularly difficult section, you’ll lose Hearts fast.

If you run out of Hearts, you’ll need to earn more if you want to keep playing. While some methods of earning Hearts are relatively simple – such as waiting the necessary amount of time for them to replenish organically – there are other options available. For example, you can gift and receive Hearts from your friends. Below, we’ve listed ways in which you can get Hearts in Dr. Mario World.

  • Take a break, 1 Heart will refill every 30 minutes.
  • Receive Hearts as a gift from friends in Dr. Mario World, or Facebook friends.
  • Check your Daily Gifts in the Shop for a chance to earn a Heart.
  • Buy your Heart refills in exchange for Diamonds. Note that Diamonds cost real money with 5 Hearts priced at 10 Diamonds, or $1 (USD). You can also buy an hour of infinite play for 30 Diamonds, or $3 (USD).

The best ways to get more Hearts in Dr. Mario World include waiting, and having your friends send some to you either in-game or on Facebook. These methods are free and easy. If you’ve exhausted all other options, Hearts can also be purchased in exchange for Diamonds, with Diamonds serving as microtransactions in Dr. Mario World.
