Dr. Awesome is the newest surgeon at the hospital, tasked with saving patients from various viruses and bacteria, and working up through the ranks from Student to Expert Microsurgeon, but with one complication—many of the patients are acquaintances of Dr. Awesome's!

The player uses the tilt function of the iPhone to cut away at infected cells. Cutting away more than 75% of the cell kills the infection and ends the level, saving the patient. Run out of time and the patient is harmed—do it repeatedly and the patient dies. Patients can also die if left unattended too long—once a patient appears on the queue, Dr. Awesome must attend to them within a day or they will die on their own. Patient names are taken straight from the iPhone's address book, so the player might find themselves operating on some familiar-sounding patients.
