I got Surgeon Simulator 2013 as another gag gift.
It starts you off at a reception desk, where an old school computer teaches you the controls via a floppy disk. You can then practice moving objects around the desk before you start surgery. Basically, that means making a complete mess of things.
Your first surgery is heart surgery. You’re teleported to a room where the patient is prepped for surgery. There are tools on either side of the patient, along with some empty pop bottles, needles filled with psychedelic drugs, and other essentials. It’s then up to you to figure out how to complete the surgery.
Controls are limited to:
- Moving the mouse: moves the hand around
- Left mouse button: Lowers/raises the hand
- Right mouse button: Rotates the hand
- A/W/E/R/space buttons: Control each finger
Unfortunately for the patient, this makes the game play a lot like QWOP.
Surgeon Simulator 2013 is amusing, but the controls are incredibly frustrating (as I’m sure they’re intended to be). If you like QWOP, you’ll probably enjoy Surgeon Simulator. As for me, it’s probably a good thing I’m not a surgeon. 😉
