Dr. Awesome lifts classic arcade (and Mac) rules and re-skins them with a medical theme. Blobs representing viruses float around the game board, and you have to carve up the space, cutting down their habitat until they can't survive. Tilts drive your surgical tool, drawing lines across the virus' territory. Viruses break your incomplete line segments in a collision, forcing you to try again and also penalizing you by reducing the count-down clock. When the clock ends, the patient often dies."
