Anonymous March 30, 2008 1:47 PM

for a while i had trouble on karl too but if you don't care about what letter rank you get do it like this

once you first get inside cut up the first three caffeine patches just like you would with poison: cut three times suck it up with the vaccuum and heal the cuts. after that use the itchy-sketchy to find the caffeine bars. ONLY TAKE OUT ONE AT A TIME. if you take out all three or two then one then the caffeine will spread too quickly and you will not be able to vaccuum it up quick enough. if you are fast enopugh you can finish this way with a heart rate of about 190

Black Drazon March 30, 2008 10:12 PM

YIKES. Just finished Eddy 2 again with exactly 3 seconds and 3 HP left on the meters. Suffice to say, very, very close call. XD

Superflyz March 31, 2008 2:55 AM

What is rank E?

Black Drazon March 31, 2008 10:45 PM

I've got a D before, but never an E. I think it depends on special negative conditions, since my abysmal Eddie 2 score two posts up got me a C. Or maybe it has something to do with Misses?

queen-of-diamonds April 1, 2008 12:02 PM

Oh great, I managed to fix Karl, thanks to Dani's post (I'd not seen it before). If you don't waste time healing the first three wounds -after sucking up the stains of course- his heartbeats start falling at a nice pace due to the loss of blood.

About the secret files... I've only managed to open secret file 2, but I've no idea how to open #1!

gto6570 April 1, 2008 4:53 PM

Seriously, how do you chainsaw junk's ribs? it keeps saying i am too slow

queen-of-diamonds April 2, 2008 1:44 PM

gto6570, I really don't know what to tell you. Try moving it around a bit faster, because as long as you don't move away too much from the dotted line or skip any (even if you do you can go back to any missed yellow line as long as you don't release the mouse) you should be fine... it won't hurt him if you move the chainsaw fast.

Anonymous April 2, 2008 5:03 PM

OMG. How the bloody hell do u open the first secret patient???? i'm assuming that it deals with the first act, seeing the second secret patient delt with the second act and there is only 3 secret patients...


Does anyone have genereal advice for getting A's? I keep getting OK's for some procedures that seem pretty straightforward, so I don't know...Any help?

Even the rib replacement in Bleed I can't get a Great for.


on eddy i cannot get past the poison. no matter what i do im almost finishing the vaccuming then the poison dissapears and new spots show up.

Anonymous April 2, 2008 9:42 PM

So - how the heck do you use the stupid corkscrew? Everytime I try to use it with the healing gel it just says "area missed" or something - is there a certain area you have to put it in? I've put it in wounds, I've put it beside wounds, I've put it randomly on the peoples' bodies, but still nothing! Do you have to hit the red part that circles around? Do you hit in the center? HELP!

Anonymous April 3, 2008 12:51 AM

just go faster with the chainsaw and make sure you don't miss any of the dashes. thats about all.
im still wondering how to open the secret files...someone please explain.


Crikey!!!!! Has ANYONE figured out how to unlock Bum? The only info I can find on Bu, is that some people think Eddie has something to do with unlocking him. Does anyone know AT ALL??? Please Help!!!!

queen-of-diamonds April 3, 2008 10:16 AM


To get A's you need to have all 'Awesome' and 'Great' marks -no good's or ok's- AND excellent times...

For example, my first A was with Gracefuls, with a time of 1:43

Anonymous (whoever you are, about the corkscrew):

You need to click on the corkscrew, then the cream, and then click anywhere on the body and FOLLOW the red area with your mouse - the arrow inside the red area - and don't release the button until you get a 'good' 'great' or 'awesome' message.

Hope it helps.

Anonymous April 3, 2008 12:55 PM

I beat act 2 and yes Eddy was hard to beat... but if you up his heart rate you should be good

Any word on when act 3 will be up or anymore secrets to be revival for the 2 remaining special cases?


I'm all good until Animal... I get stuck in his stomach after removing the bones! is there something I hafta do? o_o;

victoria April 4, 2008 1:10 AM

Peter in act II is making me so angry!!! It won't cauterize and heel fast enough and I keep running out of time! Need advice on how to speed up please!

irratation April 4, 2008 9:30 AM

sweet i can't wait for act 3 but i guess for now i'll try for all A's and see if i can't unlock another secret

irratation April 4, 2008 9:42 AM

Rank E?? Well I'm proud, not really lol, to say I have gotten Rank F on Junk


So I'm guessing to unlock secret 1 on the secret files you have to redo someone in act 1?

and eddy's a right b**** in act II

Nitae H. April 5, 2008 8:54 PM

I'm having trouble with Edgar in Act II. I pick up the steroids with the tongs and hold the mouse button, but for some reason it drops it sometimes and he dies pretty much instantly! I'm holding down the left button of the mouse, yet it sill drops it. It's frustrating. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?


Having trouble with Vince in Act 2. I need help on how to work the vac on the fire. Nothing I do works. Thanks


Projections for the plot in act 3:

Horrace is definitely the key to something here. For those of you who don't remember, he's that guy with the disturbing spiders popping out of his heart (level 1, last patient).

He's the only patient you've operated on without Dr. Bleed present; notice that, after finishing up with Peter, when you make the comment about Horrace (the "guy full of ants"), Dr. Bleed is alarmed that you operated on anyone without him there to supervise.

Another clue: after you finish up with Donny (the pimp), he mentions that there's some "creepy French dude" who is the one who's been wounding all the criminals. Horrace uses French words when speaking to you, and he is noticeably the only one to do so.

Lastly, and the most dead giveaway clue, is that, if you look at file 3, it's all shadows with no names. But, if you look closer at the shadow for the last patient of file 3, you'll notice he has the exact same facial hair, hat, head structure, and cigarette as Horrace. Thus, we can conclude that your last patient IS Horrace - revisited! Only, in act 3, his silhouette makes him look a bit maniacal. I'm guessing it isn't just ants that are wrong with this guy!

The question then is, what's the deal with Horrace? Could he be Dr. Bleed in disguise? Or maybe Dr. Bleed's arch nemesis? All I know is that A) I'm excited to see where this goes, and B) wow that is sad that I'm so excited about this game...

Blackxpunk April 7, 2008 8:09 AM



does anyone know how to beat brutality on act 2. there is no way to do anything else when you take out the blockages

Crystal April 8, 2008 9:35 AM

Okay, if anyone is still having trouble with Edgar, I have a solution:
It's frustrating! I know. :)
All you have to do is, once you pick up the pill, kind of go a little slow, and make sure your mouse DOES NOT come off the pill. Don't go too slow - you'll run out of time. But don't go through it like there's a fire you need to put out!
I hope that helps you guys.

condorin April 9, 2008 9:16 PM



I have a tip for anyone stuck on how to beat Horrace. If you don't care about your score or grade, and just want to get past him (IMO he is the nastiest level in this game), then the way to do it is to go crazy with the battery.

Here's the deal about the car battery. If you shock a patient once, he/she will go to 0 heart rate. Shock him/her again, and his/her heart rate returns to 5 BPM if he/she was at 5 or more before the first shock, or whatever number LESS THAN five if it was at that. This is very important, as shocking and then reviving a patient whose heart rate is already at 1 BPM is a lost cause.

With Horrace, you need to use to the battery many times - first on the ants that pop out on the surface of the heart, and then on the three nests with the regular and queen ants that you find in the inner heart. The ants are quick little bastards, and change direction often, meaning that one of the best ways to attack them is to blindly start shocking all over their area. You'll kill them quickly, and they shouldn't be able to get as many bites in. Thus, you'll end up with no ants and a heart rate at 5 or 4, where you can then do the corkscrew/gel trick to get the heart rate back up. Do this for each nest as well - as soon as you cut it open, start shocking the daylights out of the area - rinse and repeat. You'll probably get a D, but it's the easiest way to get past Horrace.

queen-of-diamonds April 10, 2008 3:09 PM

I'm thinking that if Horrace is the 'key' unlock Bum then it must have something to do with being able to kill all the bugs and finish the procedure without any mistakes -that is, without stopping his heart once-.

I've been trying and I can pretty much kill the bugs in the first nest without any accidental heart-stopping, but when I get to the second nest I always misclick and zap the guy.

I'm gonna keep trying, though.

Anywho, any news on when is Part 3 coming out???

Kristian April 11, 2008 1:37 AM

So I beat Horrace and I got B !!

I never misclick to shock him but BUM is still locked

what should I do??

who can unlock BUM plz share your comment!!

Thx guy!!


Zak - I have an A on Brutality, and here is how to beat him. I'm putting it under a spoiler tag, just in case anyone else doesn't want to know:

First, open him up, and you'll be at his intestines. There are three pockets of poison that you need to cut out. If you want to get an A, you'll need to cut them out one at a time, and, after each cut, suck up all the poison (to get a "great" or better on the sucking). Otherwise, the two poison areas toward the top can be cut up together and sucked up at the same time. You'll get a lower score, but it's easier. Finish up all the poison sucking, then cauterize and gel over the cuts you've made (should be three per poison area).
Next, equip the pizza cutter, and use the itchy sketch to scan the colon. You'll see three blockages, all of which you need to cut to the surface, then cut out, then pull out. Once you've done this, staple/burn/gel the wounds, and you'll be done in the colon.
After sealing up the colon incision, you'll go to Brutality's stomach. Once inside, you'll see a pair of handcuffs - yup, he shoved them up there...use the saw on the dotted lines, and the tongs to extracts the cuffs in three pieces. This is the easiest saw job in the game; it's pretty hard NOT to do well at this one. Once you're done, seal up the stomach, then the incision, and there you go! Patient done.


Okay, Im really having problems on Peter.
Pleaseeee help!

dirtyrebor April 12, 2008 8:10 PM

Please help with trent, in the second inside always dead and i have two bullets for finish ¿?¿?¿?how can i do it


If anyone knows how to unlock bum please tell me i just realy want to unlock everything and get all A's.

Bean Pole April 14, 2008 4:31 PM

Dude this has to be my fave game of ALL TIME! What suck is I have to wait till act 3 is ready! Can you tell us when that will be? I'm dieing to slice and dice more people!!!

bloodkitten April 14, 2008 10:18 PM

im so bored with this game part three hasnt came out i cant ace horrace and theres no other games as cool as this.

i like this game and know what would be cool after part three... being able to edit your own people!!!


attention those needing vacuum help!!!

if you following the red bar back and forth like you do with the corkscrew, you will find the sucking power increases and the vacuum works much much faster.


im stuck on edgar
ive unlocked bum beleve it or not
But my lips are sealed, if i told you it would be cheating


how do you unlock bum? its so frustrating not getting a new character until act 3 comes out, and who knows when that comes out.

Anonymous April 21, 2008 12:24 PM

ah. come on. u can tell us. we share secrets here. and i'm done with act 2 and beat stupor man. so i'm ready for bum! :D please tell...


Oddly enough, I'm having serious problems on the patient with my own name in actII, Joe. I get him all patched up nice n quick, but when I get to his insides is where the problem is. I know you have to zap the tapeworm with the battery atleast twice, but on the second click, each time, I always get a Miss (inacurate) message even though I'm just zapping the worm and it hits both times. The patient's heart stops, can't be refibulated and ends up dieing due to "Patient lost too much blood."

Anybody else have this problem? or any suggestions?

Anonymous April 21, 2008 7:19 PM

I've unlocked him, but I can't into him the second time around.

Anonymous April 21, 2008 9:37 PM

I Love this game and i beat stuporman in the secret file you have to use the pizza cutter first then the chainsaw the second time but if anyone knows how to unlock the other two secret files and when act three comes out let me know.

queen-of-diamonds April 22, 2008 12:37 PM

Oh please, Bum can't be unlocked until act 3 comes out. It's pretty obvious by now.

Do really believe that someone who asks for help because they're stuck in a character has achieved the one thing NO-ONE else has? Makes me laugh to even read their comment.

Black Drazon April 22, 2008 5:53 PM

To Everyone Asking About Stuporman: Stuporman gets harder to cut into with every piece of craptonite you take out of him. It already happened when you were removing the pieces during the first segment (if you did them one at a time), but you might have thought you simply missed the line. The answer is simple: keep cutting over the same line back and forth until you get in.

To Everyone Asking About Bum: The creator already confirmed in the Adult Swim forums that the last two secret files are unlocked with Part III.


Well, I finished both Act I and II, but no A's....(kudos to those who did--I'm impressed)
I was basically a C student, with a handful of B's, a couple D's, and one F. Sad, I realize, looking at everyone's comments...=(

Do I need ALL A's to have a secret patient file unlock?

Is that the only way? Or if I got just BETTER grades would it be possible? Please answer...Thanx


to beat stupord man you scan
remove the stuff
and you have to keep cutting over because his skin gets tougher
in the next bit though
u have to use the chainsaw


I'm actually stuck on Edgar as well. I made two incisions and now I don't know what to do. What's the next step?


How the hell do you beat joe.. :S so hard

Its ACT 2


Donny is cool :) PIMP!

queen-of-diamonds April 28, 2008 12:55 AM

I've been having A LOT of trouble loading this game the past two or three weeks... it freezes in the "adult swim video" blue screen and never gets to load the game no matter how long I wait or how mny times I refresh.

queen-of-diamonds April 28, 2008 2:34 AM

For the people that were asking:


Walthroughs for:

KARL (Coffee guy)

1. Open his chest.
2. Once inside cut all three stains of coffee and vaccum all the poison (remember that to use the vaccum properly you need to follow the red line with your mouse -place the arrow inside the red block-).
Now, this is key: Do not cauterise the cuts. Let them bleed. This will make his heart pressure drop and give you time to work on the rest.
3. Use the magna doodle to x-ray him and locate all three coffee bags.
4. Use the cutter to 'release' the first one, use the tongs to extract it as you previously did with glass and bullets. Once you remove the bag a coffee stain will start to spread. Use the cutter on it. Vacuum thoroughly. Do not cauterise.
5. Repeat with coffee bag #2 and then #3. Remember: one at a time.
6. Once you're done with the cutting and vacuuming start to cauterise. Begin with the first three original sets of cuts.
Remember it's three small cuts per stain. (If it's too bloody and you can't see them use the vaccum to clear the area bit).
Once you're done with them seal the three new sets (you'll need to use the stapler on the holes left behind by the coffee bags).
7. Staple the chest wound, cauterise and use gel. ZEE END.

EDGAR (Steroids guy)

1. Use cutter to open the chest
2. Use cutter to make the fist cut where the yellow lines appear.
3. A tray will appear with a pill. Use the tongs to pick it up and DO NOT RELEASE THE MOUSE until you're over the open cut.
Move at medium speed because if you move too fast you'll drop it and will sort of poison him. Once you have the pill on top of the wound release the mouse to drop the pill. Use the stapler, lighter and gel to close the cut as usual.
4. Repeat the same procedure two more times.
5. Close up the chest.
6. Use cutter to open the chest where the new yellow line indicates.
7. You're working on his heart now. Do the same you did before with the pills.

JOE (Worm guy)

1. Close up all the cuts on his chest using the usual stapler, lighter & gel for large cuts, and lighter and gel for small cuts.
2. Use the cutter to make an incision where indicated.
3. Now comes the tricky part. The guy has a worm inside you need to kill and remove. You need to use the battery to kill it so select it as soon as you go inside.
Zapping it is a matter of speed and accuracy mostly. The worm will leave a trail of small cuts you need to pay attention to. It will make 5 small cuts before showing his ugly wormy face. You need to zap him 3 times here for which you have two options:
#1. Hit it once when it first appears, wait for it to leave a new trail of cuts, hit it once again, wait for it to leave the new trail and zap it once again.
#2. Zap it three times in a row the first time it appears. This one is of course the best alternative and that's why it's a matter of speed and accuracy.
Both options work but with the first one you'll end up having to heal a lot of small cuts and with the second one only five :D
Whatever the technique, once you hit it three times he will dissappear. Heal the cuts and move on.
4. You're back on the chest. Didn't you just heal all those? Yep, but wormy keeps causing havoc. Staple, cauterise and then use the cutter to go inside again.
5. Ohhh, it's back.And inside his heart! Same thing here: zap it three times using either of the alternatives I mentioned before.
But this time after the third hit you killed it!!
Use the magna doodle to locate it. Use the cutter to open and the tongs to remove it. Be careful, it's a looooong creature.
Drop it on the tray. Heal the wounds.

Hope this helps, I tried to be as descriptive as possible.

I'm having problems with Vince. I cauterize his wounds and then they set fire which I have managed to put out. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn't. What's up with that?


Act III is now available!


Ok this is really weird. I went to play this game at school today and act 3 was available. Now it's not! Whats going on?


Whoops, an admin over at adultswim just posted in the forum to say that the version of Act 3 that was posted was unfinished an mistakenly went live (actually a good thing b/c boy was it difficult!)

@ Kat: I just got one to sqeuak with (of all things) the chainsaw.

Act 3 is a *lot* harder in general. The last surgery is brutal, but very fun. :) Looking forward to hearing what you guys think.

Stevie Dee May 8, 2008 4:28 PM

Oh man. I have officially given up on the second man in act 3.

3 times you have to zap that spider! It gets me every time.


You have to hit the scorpions with the chainsaw, each one has to be hit 3 times before it dies. When it dies it leaves poison in it's spot!


How do I beat Trent on Act three, any tips if so, post them ASAP. Thanx people

Black Drazon May 8, 2008 5:19 PM

So let's talk Act 3, eh?

Patient 1: Trent II

Chainsaw the scorpions three times, which will cause them to break out in poison pools! Once you get inside, you'll have to deal with the Queen, who you have to hold the chainsaw down on and will split into 3 scorpions AND a poison pool when she dies. Nasty! Keep your vitals up and the wounds closed!

Patient 2: Peter

Peter is pretty tame until you get inside his stomach. To avoid the frustration, ignore the eggs inside his stomach, they don't affect your vitals until you cut them, so concentrate on the Queen. Get your vitals to around 40 and then cut open the Queen's hive. Two poison pools will form. Cut them and, if you're fast, burn them to keep them from taxing your vitals (the next poison pool spawns randomly, but normally I can pull this much off before it does). Then, shock the hive three times to get the Queen to come out and QUICKLY shock her. She retreats immediately. Clean up your mess, raise vitals and do it twice more. Be aware that the third shock will kill her, prompting her to drop two more poison pools, so try to have extra vitals for that. Lastly, wipe out those eggs and close up.

Patient(s) 3: Henchman and Boss

Two operations in a row, ten minutes between them. The only thing new here are the leeches. Burn them for a while to kill them, then remove them and then their teeth to be allowed to staple the wound. The Leech King is nothing special, except that he splits into some smaller ones. The leeches grow as the level goes on... the wounds they cause can look ridiculously stupid if you try to finish the rest of the operation before them like I did before I knew to burn them ;).

Patient 4: Junk II

Cut him open, clear out ALL the food and then use the Itch-A-Sketch, and memorize the numbers that appear (they never change). Cut the metal clasps holding down the wires in the order the numbers show (so cut the wire attached to #1 first). Both sides of the clasp have to be cut, though I've only ever seen that happen on #1. Now, remove the pins from the tubes at the bottom (all the food has to be done to do this, even the small ones). Lastly, burn the fuses in the bottom right.

Patient 5: Aureola

Fire, fire everywhere, and no blood to stop it! Do not heal her wounds or you'll regret it. Corkscrew some vitals into her and hope you make a few more bleeding cuts along the way! Keep all the blood you can find, the rest of this mission is pretty much identical to Eddy 1, just with the aforementioned blood shortage. Doesn't Alan have a tap he can run somewhere?

Patient 6:

Bleed 2

Okay, multiple phases. The first is all poison. Unless you're going for a high score, start in the top right where the pools are close enough to get at once, then work your way across. Gather all the blood you can during this, because the next phase is fire. Extract the burning blob from the wound and leave the cut open to give you more blood for the other fires. Next is ice, which is a simple extraction. Go quickly! Last of all is a 5-hit tapeworm. You can generally only get 3 hits at a time, though, so be careful. Also, did you know you can hurt a tapeworm while it's under the skin if you're careful? Not many people do. I'm sure you know how to deal with things from there.

Patient 7: Horrace II

Don't bother to heal him, as I haven't found a way to do this without stopping his heart, though feel free to correct me. Cut in and start fighting the Mighty Morphin' Parasites. Remember what I said about hurting a tapeworm under the skin? As far as I can tell, you have to do that now (though I might be wrong). This will cause the centipede (!!) to surface. QUICKLY chainsaw him once, and he will burst and become the Queen Spider. Shock her (and the patient, to restart his heart) quickly, raise vitals and treat as normal, noting that you've already done the first shock, so be ready for her to die and drop poison after the SECOND hive.

The second section is with the Queen Ant, which is no different than in Horrace I.

Lastly, the Queen Scorpion, which is unbelievably hard when you start off on 0 vitals. Do your best to heal while the Queen is still alive, as she does much less damage than her babies or the cuts you make to stop them (stop her from attacking with brief chainsaw bursts). If you can deal with all the damage you caused wiping up the scorpions, you win and unlock the Delerium bonus operation!


how do you beat trent in part 3? i cant zap the scorpions >.>

Black Drazon May 8, 2008 5:33 PM

Okay, beat The Delirium. Unlike how I hoped, it didn't unlock Bum, which means I'm completely in the dark.

Secret Patient 2: The Delirium

How's your chainsaw arm? Your biggest problem is that you can't heal, so this is all about doing things right the first time. Just chainsaw the yellow lines, remove whatever's inside/the old parts and place in the new ones, then cauterize (!) and gel (!). If you make it, you win. If you don't... well...

See, trouble is is that there's a glitch. If you lose, it seems that the back-left pipe won't get a replacement part once you remove it and you'll be stuck. The only way to fix this is to reload the flash file. If anyone has an Adult Swim account, I'd love if you could report that.


Hey, Black Drazon - is there a way you could make some youtube videos of these? Or, perhaps, at least tell us what exactly the plot is? I'm really curious to know where this goes, but have neither the skill nor the time to play this act right now...thanks!

queen-of-diamonds May 8, 2008 6:03 PM

Okay, is the game working INCREDIBLY slow for anybody else?

I mean, I was able to finish Trent without that problem but once I got inside Peter everything went into a very weird slow motion.

On a different note, Act III is awesome so far!! *claps enthusiastically*

I give one of those scratch and sniff stickers that your teacher would give you when you did really well to Psychotronic for being the first person to ever bring up Titus in a game review. However, I don't know what it is, but I feel compelled to defend that dookiestorm of a play... maybe it's that movie with Anthony Hopkins...

queen-of-diamonds May 8, 2008 8:24 PM

I need help... In Horrace II, Act 3:

After you've killed Queen ant and have to deal with Queen Scorpion... how the heck do you do it? I'm left with 0 vitals and the battery doesn't seem to work to revive him. Twice he died on me without giving me time to even try to cauterize or pass the Etchy Sketchy to locate it. I don't know what to do.

Any tips for that particular part would be greatly appreciated!

I can't find the Queen in Trent...I get to the lungs, and there's a hole at the centre where scorpions crawl out of, but no Queen!!!

Fireaxe888 May 9, 2008 9:25 AM

I just can't beat Cletus.
Whenever I heal him I just go to 200 bpm and he dies.
Do you have to wait until the timer runs out?


Big hint for the final mission in Act 3:

I see people suggesting you need the battery to hurt the centipede. This is not true! Just estimate the centipede's position by the cuts, and stab with the chainsaw. This makes life MUCH easier, because you won't need to restore vitals like when the heart stops.

I hope that helps!
Also, regarding BUM,

He unlocked for me after the Delerium mission. I did happen to have all A ranks for act 1, and nothing under a C for 2, 3, and the secret missions. Perhaps his appearance is tied to scores or ranks?

I'm getting the same thing as nianqiao - I cut open Trent's chest, kill the two scorpions, get the hole between his lungs using the etchy-sketchy, then all that comes out of the hole are more scorpions. Is there anything else I have to do to get to the Queen?

Peasnquiet May 9, 2008 10:22 AM

Lol never mind, I got it. Power of posting! XD


Use the chainsaw on the middle of the hole

@bc: Hm, I could probably do some videos but I'll admit, I wouldn't know the first thing about it. What programs are good for that?

@SirNiko: Ah, that makes sense! Chainsawing blind is definitely less dangerous than heart-stopping blind, that's for sure. And it's good to see that Bum is unlocked based on something less than "Get All A's" becuase that would have sucked. XD

I am having issues with Dr. Bleed on act 3. I dont seem to have enough time to get save him. I can do everything except for the tapeworm and someone here mentioned that you can get the tapeworm while its under the skin. I dont know how to get the tapeworm while he's under the skin...can anyone help me?

queen-of-diamonds May 9, 2008 12:27 PM

In my case BOTH Delirium and Bum unlocked after I finished Horrace II.
I didn't have to finish Delirium to unlock Bum.

queen-of-diamonds May 9, 2008 12:36 PM

Arggh... hit send instead of preview.

I have absolutely no idea what to do with Bum. All the tools get me 'Miss' messages...

Delirium is cool

It's like the DeLorean from BTTF!!

mixedmetaphor May 9, 2008 3:16 PM

i'm having a weird glitchy sort of problem with karl in act 2.

i've pulled out my first coffee bag (the one on the right), sucked out the poison, and stapled the wound. i can cauterize the small poison cuts, but when i try to cauterize the large, stapled wound, it says MISSED! and karl dies. but i know i didn't miss! i've tried several times, and karl keeps dying. has anyone else had this problem?

a_hippy May 9, 2008 5:02 PM

Is there any other way to get BUM besides Ranks or Score?

lvsoldier May 9, 2008 5:22 PM

HELP! I am trying to beat Bleed on Act III (3) and I dont seem to have enough time. Someone mentioned hitting the tapeworm from under the skin but I dont know how to do that. Can anyone help???

Black Drazon May 9, 2008 5:33 PM

@mixedmetaphor: Certain misses, somehow related to the coffee bag wounds but I've never been inclined to experiment, kill Karl instantly. It seems likely that you tried to cauterize before the wound was stapled properly. It can be easy to get into the habit of stapling small holes only once but occasionally it's just not enough for the game.

Black Drazon May 9, 2008 5:43 PM

Question for everyone who's unlocked Bum: to test a theory, do you have any C's or D's? How many A's do you have? I figure Bum is related somehow to either the player's total score, C/D/E-count (probably "0 Cs and Ds") or A-count. The more info we have, the easier this'll be to work out.

queen-of-diamonds May 9, 2008 6:12 PM

@ Black Drazon

In ACT 1 I have 8 A's and 2 B's
In ACT 2 I have 7 A's and 3 B's

and in ACT 3 I have 5 B's and 2 C's (Trent II and Horrace II)

I don't know if having many A's count but as I said before once I finished Horrace II I got the usual 'Mission complete' message and immediately after the 'Secret unlocked - Delirium' and 'Secret unlocked - Bum' notices.

But then maybe it's just that both secrets unlock once you finish the three acts...

lvsoldier May 9, 2008 6:58 PM

Ok I finally beat Bleed on act 3! I can sleep


I've beat the three acts, and beat delirium, but Bum is still locked. HELP!!!!! I need to finish the game!

calintz May 9, 2008 11:39 PM

Hmm. Is it just me, or when during Peter's stage in Act III, things run way slower?

I was this close to beating the stage, but the lighter was going as fast as molasses :(


Just FYI, to anyone who is still curious about any of the secrets, here they are, both how to unlock them and how to beat them:


Earn 1,000,000 points. Also, he wasn't available until Act 3 came out, even though there were some who had already earned 1,000,000 points. For most players, to do this requires you to beat the game and then go back and replay a few patients.
To beat BUM:
First, rub gel on the red button to open up the panel (yup, the metaphor is lubing someone's ass, I believe...). Then, gel the crusty brown spots where it looks like there's some damage. Then, vacuum up the brown liquid, and make sure you get all of it. Dump the brown liquid into the batteries using the brown dots on top of each one. Then use the lighter on each dot, and you'll be taken to the battery. Staple each yellow wire where it's broken, then shock each corner, then the power button in the center. Success! BUM will also treat you to some uncomfortable post-op dialogue.


The easiest and first one you'll unlock. When you're operating on Donny, you'll notice that there's a new "pimp meter" on screen. To get Stuporman, you have to fill this up completely. To fill it, in addition to performing the surgery as usual, you need to put a staple on each of Donny's nipples (like piercings), and dot the "i" on the Pimp plate you put in his chest with a staple.
To beat Stuporman:
Cut him open, and use the itchy sketchy to find the chunks of craptonite. Cut them to the surface, and then remove them. Notice that his wounds will heal automatically after you remove the craptonite; he's really super after all! Back at the surface, the second cut in requires you to retrace a couple times with the cutter, as Stuporman is getting stronger. Inside is the same thing as the first stage, only this time you'll need to use the chainsaw. Finish this up, close the incision, and Stuporman will thank you.


Beat the game, and DeLirium is your reward.
To Beat DeLirium:
As you might have guess from the name, DeLirium is basically the DeLorean from Back To The Future. This operation is somewhat difficult, as there is a lot of sawing involved, and no way to heal the car if you screw up, so be careful! First, saw open the hood, and go in for a look. For the two front pipes, saw them, remove their blockages, then replace the parts, burn, and gel. Notice that the blockage on the right pipe is a collar for "Einstein", aka Doc Brown's dog from BTTF. For the back two pipes, saw out the broken parts, replace, burn, and gel. Saw out the Mr. Fusion (remember the end of BTTF 1?), then put it back in with the stuff in it, burn, and gel. Finally, saw the line along the flux capacitor, and you're back at the hood. Replace the hood, burn, and gel, and you're done! The "heart rate" of The DeLirium will jump to 88 (as in 88 mph, the speed needed to make the DeLorean jump time in BTTF), and away it goes! The post-op dialogue is pretty hilarious.

Whew. Hope that helps!


For those of you who are curious, like I was, about the plot aspects of the game, here's a plot synopsis (yes, I have no life):

Act One:
You are alan Probe, a pizza boy and wannabe surgeon. One day, while making a delivery, you accidentally hit Dr. Ignocious Bleed with your car. Dr. Bleed used to be a successful surgeon, but, for reasons you don't know, he has now become a cough syrup-addicted vagrant. After patching up Bleed, he agrees to become your mentor, and mentions that he once had a student with your talents. Throughout the level, you help out mostly criminals (remember, you are a back alley surgeon), using the crude tools at your disposal. Some patients mention a surgeon at the old, abandoned hospital, who was driven out of the profession after a number of his patients died. Bleed becomes very touchy when this is brought up.
At the end of the act, Bleed goes for a walk to clear his head, while you deal with Horrace, a creepy guy who ends up having an infestation of ants in his heart. He actually seems to like it...After healing him, a mysterious (and attractive) woman stops by, looking for "the surgeon", but it's not you. When you mention her to Bleed, he seems to think he might know who it is.
Act Two:
You continue to heal mostly criminals, and begin to realize that someone is purposefully hurting them. After working on Donny, a Pimp, he mentions that "some creepy French dude" might be responsible for all the hurt criminals. At the end of the act, you finally have the courage to confront Bleed with his past, and, while he agrees to tell you, it looks like you've got another patient...
Act Three:
Beginning right where Act Two left off, Trent from Act One is back, only this time, he tried to flash some woman and got stabbed repeatedly. Going to work on him, you'll notice that he also has an infestation of scorpions. It's gross, and it sets an appropriate tone for this last act.
Now, the mystery woman from Act One reappears. Her name is Aureola Svelte, and she's the one who's been attacking all the criminals! When you ask Bleed about her, he says that she wants to kill him, but also that he killed her parents. Time to go back to Dr. Bleed's old hospital.
After healing a few more criminals, Aureola shows up again and yells at you for ruining all her work. Bleed apologizes to Aureola for what he's done, but it turns out she doesn't even remember him, until he introduces himself. You see, she was looking for the man who was really responsible for the deaths of her parents: Horrace D'Obscene, aka Dwayne Pipe, Dr. Bleed's former pupil! He went into hiding after Aureola started going after him, comes back intending to kill you all.
The last three surgeries are all part of the final confrontation with Horrace/Dwayne. First, Aureola tried to use a bomb that you removed from Junk to kill Dwayne, but it accidentally blows up on her. After saving her, Bleed confronts Dwayne, and asks him why he went so evil and crazy. Dwayne responds that he has an appreciation for the poison needle that Dr. Bleed has, and, as a parting gift, he injects Bleed with the same poison that he used to sabotage Bleed's patients way back when. Rather than kill you, Dwayne leaves you to watch Bleed die and know that you couldn't save him.
Of course, you can and do save bleed. Dwayne ran for it before you started operating on Bleed, but luckily, he was caught by Officer Hack Brutality from Act Two. Brutality is going to continue with his beating, until you notice something...funny...going on in Dwayne's stomach. As you find out in your final operation, he is infested to the brim with all different kind of bugs: centipedes, spiders, ants, and, finally , scorpions. Finish up this one final surgery, and you can leave Dwayne at the mercy of Brutality, while going to a party with Bleed, Aureola, and some of the patients you've healed. Congratulations!
