Our rating: starstarstarhalfstarblankstar :: GRUESOME SLICING :: Read Review »

Bossa Studios has updated the completely realistic Surgeon Simulator, allowing iPhone and iPod Touch owners the chance to say 'Shhhhh. I Doctor Now' on their devices for the first time.

For those of you unaware of Bob and his many unfortunate surgeries, Surgeon Simulator challenges players to complete a variety of transplants - including heart, double kidney, and eyes - with control of your surgical instruments down to your nimble fingers. Being a physics-based game however, your fingers will likely end up being more clumsy than nimble, with flying objects and a dead patient usually being the end result.

Surgeon Simulator is available to download for iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch now for $5.99.
