Getting a major surgical procedure is serious business. Most folks don't want to think about all of the crazy things that can potentially go wrong, but Surgeon Simulator mines this common source of anxiety for comedic gold by cooking up outrageous what-if scenarios that are equal parts horrifying and hilarious. Imagine getting a heart transplant or tooth extraction from someone who has no clue what he or she is doing—that's the order of the day in this malpractice-prone operating room, except you're the one with the scalpel, bone saw, and needles. The promise of catastrophic failure is indeed a huge part of the messy fun.
It’s not the heaviest week we’ve seen for iOS releases lately, but a handful of headliners have us excited to raid the App Store shortly. Surgeon Simulator brings its hilariously cumbersome operations to iPad, while Glorkian Warrior: Trials of Glork and Dudeski are new promising indies to check out. And favorites like Pivvot and Smash Bandits have been updated with fresh new content to explore. Be sure to keep an eye out for full reviews of some of these titles in the coming days, and then check back next Thursday for an all-new list of notable games to consider.
