My Mac has a few shoot ’em up blood and guts games, too, so I’m not squeamish about flying body parts. That is, until I came across what is arguably one of the most fascinating Mac games ever. Yes, it’s bloody, gory, with tension and excitement. But not what you think.
The title alone gives away the deal. Surgeon Simulator. That’s right, you become a doctor with patients who need immediate, life saving surgery.
Yes, it’s the blood and guts kind of surgery where there are ample provisions of both (blood and guts).
This version of Surgeon Simulator provides multiple scenarios– operating room, brain surgery, or surgery from the back of a moving ambulance (very difficult; operating on a Tilt-a-Whirl would be tougher).
There’s a kidney transplant, a heart transplant, and even a brain transplant to test your Mac-based surgery skills.
Forget about a fully equipped and staffed operation center. It’s you and a few clumsy tools, and a lot of blood.
Of course, these pictures are worth a thousand words.
Can it get worse?
Sure. Why not?
The ambulance mode seems to be the most difficult of many, and Surgeon Simulator actually seems to prefer the mouse to the trackpad.
Otherwise, you’re in for a treat. It’s not as easy to carve into a human body as you might think.
Brain surgery, anyone?
The graphics are graphic, and the sound is the pumping energy kind, which doesn’t help the surgery techniques at all.
Surgeon Simulator is truly over the top, rather humorous in an onscreen blood and guts kind of way. If the sight of a little blood here and there bothers you, head back to Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja.
