Surgeon Simulator is a humorous and over the top surgeon simulator game that was originally created during a game jam and then later polished to its current release form.
The gameplay consists of the player clumsily trying to control a doctors hands while being tasked to perform surgery on a patient. Any tools can be used, poorly controlled at that which makes for funny circumstances that are not only fun for the player but also for anyone watching.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Rewarding exploration based gameplay
There is not much in the way of hand holding in the game as many situations can be passed more easily once the payer understands the ins and outs of the game. Things like a green serum not being explained that it helps with a patient bleeding will only be discovered through trial and error, which in the end is rewarding to finally learn all of the mechanics of the game.
Pro Purposefully difficult controls create slapstick humor
In the game the player controls the movements, rotation, raised/lowered stated of the surgeons hand as well as each finger separately. It's purposefully difficult to control the movements of the hand well. The difficulty of controlling actions creates lots of opportunities for slapstick.
Con Can get frustrating
While lack of accuracy of the controls is the main draw of the game it can at times get unnecessarily frustrating.
