* SequelDifficultyDrop: Amateur Surgeon 2 is considerably easier than its predecessors, particularly when going for a high score as [[ScoreMultiplier combos]] are much easier to keep up. Though this is {{Subverted}} for the Mystery Boss, which rquires you to [[GimmickLevel use a flashlight]] as opposed to seeing everything at once. '''OH''', and in the mobile port, the light moves when you '''[[ScrappyMechanic tilt the device]]'''.

** The fourth game has all the surgeries from the previous games and is a due to Dr. Bleed reliving Alan's and Ophelia's memories.



** The fourth game tries its best to [[AvertedTrope avert this]], by making all the surgeries more straightforward. They even outright removed the "Napoleon" mission. The only missions that really require trial-and-error gameplay are those with bugs and poison.



** This applies to potential partners Chad Burnem and Iron Wang, who respectively use a flamethrower and a clothes iron.

''Amateur Surgeon'' is a series of medical based action puzzle games on [[Creator/AdultSwim Adult Swim]].com (or to put it simply, ''Videogame/TraumaCenter'' with idiots). The series centers around former pizza boy Alan Probe and his life after discovering the world of surgery. The games provide plenty of examples of morbid, gross-out humor with a unique difficulty curve. The series goes for more scatological and dark humor, easily seen with Alan's arsenal of improvised medical tools. The most iconic is a pizza slicer he uses as a scalpel. The third game is available for mobile devices and deals with Alan's apprentice, Ophelia Payne. There's also a Facebook game focusing on running one of Alan's "Bleed Everywhere" clinics. The 4th game, titled "Regeneration" has you play as a clone of Bleed, who must reintroduce "Improvised Surgery" into the world and [[spoiler: teaming up with [[EnemyMine a clone of Hubris]]]] to try to cure "Clone disease".
