Yet another one of those games I used to own as a kid as a result of the General Mills cereal box promotions. Apparently I’m just destined to do board game adaptations at this point!

This is, of course, a take on the classic children’s board game. Now, considering that the board game is based on your ability to carefully use tweezers to take out pieces of plastic, this one takes an awful lot more liberties from the source material, to the point of being almost in-name only. That said, in spite of all that, it’s a pretty good adaptation. There are five hospitals for you to go to, each with five patients, and the “main” minigame of each hospital involves you bringing tweezers down into the patient and retrieving the specified ailment. Each hospital also has a second, smaller minigame to play as well, and can be your choice of how you want to cure the patient as well.

In terms of my thorough-ness, I tried to show what every patient looks like when you operate on them, and what happens if you mess up the ailment. On the last patient in each hospital, I played the second minigame as well. These don’t change an awful lot from patient to patient so I felt it was really only worth showing once. They do get progressively harder the more you play them, but I didn’t feel that was enough to make it worth showing them a second time.

Hope you enjoy the walkthrough!

    Well, It never quite occurred to me a a child that it probably isn't a good idea to operate without proper anesthesia

    I always hated how this game didn't allow me to save and I had to start over every time. I probably cured 1000s of patients

    I vividly remember Operation! The board game. I don't remember the PC adaptation.
    Also, one thing that I notice is that whenever you go into an obstacle when you're operating Sam, his nose will glow! Just like the board game!
