Space Bar, Arrow Keys, and mouse (as prompted)

Step back in time and perform some primitive surgery. Heal the Bubonic Plague, remove an arrow from a solider, and save the town from its nightmare. This game border lines Trauma Center (obviously it has to, since its a surgery game as well), but has its own twists. Enjoy!

-Having issues with controls? Read on...

-In order to make a cut, start from one side of the line of stars, click the first star, and drag thru each point. Don't let go of the mouse!
-To hit with the hammer, click the mouse button when the white bar reaches the top. You have to time it right in order for a hit to work.
-You will lose life even during some procedures, so don't worry... sometimes doing the right thing will cause pain.
-To aim the stake, press the Space Bar at the right time (straight up).

Awesome, but needs more...

The style and gameplay is really good but why so short?


Rated 4 / 5 stars

Really, really good

I really liked this game, but for some reason when it got to placing the wooden stake, it wouldn't let me do anything. However the bit that i did get to play was really good. I hope to see more like this, good job.

I only got to the vampire part, and i didn't know how to "aim" to wooden steak...... how do you do it wiht arrow keys, mouse or what?

The graphics were great! Very creative idea for a game.
It would be nice if there was some kind of saving feature for this.

Only 3 operations? Boo, I wanted so many more! That said, the operations were well thought out and different, plus you gotta love blood and pus splattering the screen :D I gave the sound a lowish score because I wanted sound effects for everything I did but the music provided was suitably chilling. Apart from that, this game was pretty much everything I want in a...what would you call this? A surgery sim? Whatever the genre is called, this is a very good example of it!

Please make more, preferably with a save function or autosave after each operation. I'm not a natural surgeon and somehow my patients keep dying.....
