Bossa Studios' humorous operation sim Surgeon Simulator is now available on iPad through the iTunes App Store for $5.99.
The mobile version offers the Heart and Double-Kidney transplants, along with a mode where players control a trolley through hospital corridors and more than 50 achievements. The developer recently released a teaser showcasing the eye operations that feature in the tablet port, which also includes a dentistry mode. The port features multiplayer and users with iPad 4 and up have the ability to record and upload surgeries.
Bossa Studios demoed a prototype of the tablet version at the Eurogamer Expo last September. The early version's controls included a Z-axis that automatically adjusted as players tap and swipe the screen. As with other versions, the current release's control system removes the left arm of surgeon Nigel Burkegone, leaving players to operate on patient Bob with one appendage.
Initially created during the 2013 Global Game Jam, Surgeon Simulator 2013 was released in full for Windows PC, Mac and Linux via Steam last April, followed by GOG.com in October.
