ngmoco ( http://www.ngmoco.com), creator and publisher of games exclusively for the iPhone™ and iPod® touch, is calling all surgical specialists to assist Dr. Awesome, MicroSurgeon M.D.™ with microscopic missions. Exclusively developed for the iPhone and iPod touch by Escalation Studios and ngmoco, Dr. Awesome, MicroSurgeon M.D.™ takes up residence in the App Store for the great price of $1.99.

As the world’s most skilled microsurgeon, Dr. Awesome has been called in to eradicate a deadly virus spreading throughout the entire population, including the players’ friends and family saved in contact lists on the iPhone and iPod touch.

Dr. Awesome, MicroSurgeon M.D.™ ( http://drawesome.ngmoco.com) challenges even the steadiest of hands with intense arcade gameplay. Players perform microsurgery to isolate and eradicate mutagens that have infected their friends, personalized from the user’s iPhone and iPod touch contacts. With the accelerometer-guided micro scalpel, players must cut and trap the offending viruses, avoid disruptive virus counter attacks and collect various power-ups to succeed in saving their friends. An in-game autosave feature also saves patients when surgeons are called away from the operating table.
