Getting any serious medical procedure done can be a terrifying experience, and we can only imagine what goes on once you're put under on the operating table. While Amateur Surgeon 3 taps into our worst surgical nightmares in horrifying ways, it's as hilarious as it is grotesque. Removing organs with a chainsaw and pizza cutter, suturing cuts with an office stapler, and cauterizing wounds with a Zippo? That's par for the course with this wildly imaginative and comical – if somewhat gross – take on pressure-cooker medical mini-game scenarios.
Each week, we highlight a selection of the most interesting, exciting, and unique new iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch titles released on the App Store. EA's long-awaited Ultima Forever: Quest for the Avatar headlines the week with its release in the United States, while Amateur Surgeon 3, Mikey Hooks, and Worms 3 offer follow-up entries to some established iOS favorites. And we've also got a handful of totally new games in the roundup this week.
Just in time for the holidays (as well as your night terrors about the very idea of shopping on Black Friday), Adult Swim has announced two Christmas-themed games: Robot Unicorn Attack Christmas Edition (available for $0.99) and Amateur Surgeon Christmas Edition (available for free). The titles sport a similar look and feel to previous titles such as Robot Unicorn Attack (available for $1.99), Robot Unicorn Attack Heavy Metal Edition (available for $1.99) and Robot Unicorn Attack HD (available for $2.99).
