In the real world, a Manic Medic is the last thing you want – especially if they're slicing sharp objects into your body. But in a mobile game, they're just fine.
Infospace's newie isn't about deranged doctors, mind. And they're not big fans of Motorcycle Emptiness either. Instead, the 'Manic' in the title refers to their workload.
Manic Medic is a casual game that puts you in the shoes of a harassed consultant, who has to assign incoming patients to beds, diagnose what's wrong with them, heal them, and then clean their bed up after they've been booted out of the hospital to make room for another person.
If this sounds familiar, that's because it's heavily inspired by Diner Dash, another casual game that involves a harassed waitress sitting customers at tables, taking their orders, serving them and then cleaning up when... well, you get the picture.
It may not be original, but if Manic Medic is half as good as Diner Dash, it'll be well worth a look. The game features the same idea of scoring combos by completing multiple actions in one go, rewarding expertise.
