Great for medical students looking to play a game while learning

Not a cardiologist, I can however say it's a really fun game for medical students that helps you learn some knowledge about basic techniques and principles that may come in handy if you're getting pimped while rotating in interventional cardiology in your third or fourth year

So Cool.

This app is WONDERFUL. Truthfully, I’m just a curious high school student considering a career in medical work, so I may not be the intended audience, but holy cow. The design of the app is modern and sleek. The music is riveting. This is a promising start to this app.

This being said, there are some things that need to be cleaned up in the app.

For example, I don’t think that the directions are clear enough in some of the stages. (Example: In the level where you learn to treat calcification, I killed a couple of patients before I realized what I really needed to do.) This can be especially confusing for those with very limited background knowledge of cardiology and the treatment of different ailments. A way to fix this issue could be an optional “guide” that takes you step by step through each process. (I mean literally step by step. Go for ultimate hand-holding.)

Another thing that could use work is general playability. I have had reoccurring issues with framerate, and have had the game crash mid-session before. The game also sometimes seems to have difficulty registering whether you are trying to rotate the camera or move components within the heart.

Otherwise, I am very pleased with this app. Keep up the good work! ✨

Amazing Game! Best recommend for Cardiologists and Cardio surgeons,Medical students.

Amazing Game ever! I would rank this the Number one game for cardiologists and Cardio Surgeons,Medical students. And you get to learn so much Latin vocabulary that are related with the cardio. This game gives you mind criticism to figure out how to make the patient stabilized. Awesome game!
