This game follows the first mission of Sneezy, the Virus.
Living in the Swamp Forest in the Mushroom Kingdom. Sneezy is living by it's tribe the Viruses. They are hardly known by the outside-world but by one man: Dr. Louis Slamonella. He once had a experiment with one of the Viruses: Eddy and then wanted to have no more Viruses. He created a scepter that would kill all Viruses at once. He only needed the Pixels of Grace which the princess of Sneezy's tribe Butterfly contains. If Slamonella would marry her, the Pixels of Grace would come into Slamonella's database and then the scepter would have the power to rule the world and defeat the Viruses.
One year later Slamonella kidnapped the princess and the tribe decided that Sneezy and his friends look like the hero from the many legends from the tribe. Sneezy then sets of his quest to find the Black Fever from the same legends, defeating Slamonella and rescuing Butterfly
When Sneezy, Whacky en Dizzy are in the third level of the Swamp Forest, Bruce comes running up from the background. He blocks the path for the crew and utters that he is the chosen hero instead of Sneezy. He then challenges Sneezy for a fight, but only if he has more than 10 enemies infected. Sneezy eventually defeats Bruce. Bruce then runs away, swearing a return.
A few levels later, Sneezy faces Poo Piranha, which has captured the Virus Stinky. Sneezy then begins the battle with the first enemy infected. Sneezy eventually defeats Poo, rescues Stinky and moves on to the next world
When the gang arrives by the second boss: Flambat , Lee Gull comes running up to demonstrate how to see weak spots on bosses. He then joins Sneezy's army to fight Flambat, rescue Coffing and getting to world 3.
When the gang arrives at the last level before the boss, Bruce confronts the heroes. He wants that he has as many enemies infected as himself. Sneezy eventually infects as many enemies, defeats Bruce and succeeds to the next world.
The gameplay is a classic platformer with elements from the Super Mario Bros. series, where this game is a spin-off from. Players defeat enemies by using claws to make a wound, and then infect them with several sicknesses or defeating them with more claw swipes. The main sickness is Chill but in each world, a different Virus is found. Each having different abilities. Players start with Sneezy, Dizzy (a red Virus) and Whacky (a yellow virus). The one to last level in each world is a 3D level with many enemies and a point to switch between Virusses. If a certain Virus is traveling too long, it gets sick and needs to be recovered by buying Soup.
At the end of each world, a boss is found. Every enemy infected by Sneezy will then fight for him in a turn-based battle while Sneezy is on the enemy. Each time he has done a attack, he can move to a pre-set place much like in a point-and-click. Attacking is done by choosing a enemy infected earlier and tap on the spot on the Wii U Gamepad to attack the enemy on that place just like in Plants vs. Zombies. On some places are weak spots that only are seen with the Wii U Game Pad making this a cross between the turnbased fighting system of the Mario and Luigi series, and traveling around the enemy like in Zelda games, altough movement is limited to mostly two or three sides. When the boss is defeated, Sneezy gets 10 HP extra, beginning with 20.
Every boss has a few Twistpoints. Sneezy must hit all the Twistpoints to defeat the boss. They are only seen on the Wii U Gamepad and are recognized by the swirl symbol. After all Twistpoints have been hit, Sneezy only needs to damage the boss enough to make him die, as the Twistpoints are only one of the requirements to defeat a boss.
Every enemy has a so called effect. It is divided in 3 categories: Home, Sea and Danger Zone. Enemies encountered first in World 1,2,3 fall in the category Home, World 4,5,6 fall in the category Sea and the last 3 worlds enemies are the category Danger Zone. Every Virus have stats, and a that stats decide if the enemy is buffed or nerfed. Also the category Home stands for control, the category Sea stands for speed, and the category Danger Zone stands for how high the Virus can jump.
Virtual Virus: Sneezy's First Mission introduces a new kind of Super Guide. Instead of a computer controlled player taking over, a map of the level appears on the Wii U Gamepad, and the player can tap the part of the level he or she wants a tutorial of.
