A free online flash game called Amateur Surgeon has got me addicted this weekend.
You play Alan Probe, a pizza delivery guy who’s always wanted to be a surgeon. Driving your truck while reading “Top 100 gross surgeries” you crash into an old guy and have to perform emergency surgery. Using available tools like a pizza cutter (open his abdomen), a stapler (close his wounds), a lighter (cauterize wounds) you get the old guy going. Turns out he’s a retired surgeon, and he really wants to help you set up a practice on the sidewalk.
With the aforementioned tools you set about operating on people. Like the guy who was
robbing depositing money in the bank and happened to fall on some bullets, getting them stuck in his pancreas and duodenum.
I don’t know when surgery got boring, but Amateur Surgeon claims it’s “making surgery fun again”. It sure is fun using an etch-a-sketch for x-rays and a corkscrew for injections, though…
