As a Medical student, I have been a huge fan of related TV shows like House MD, Grays Anatomy and Scrubs; And that is exactly why I was excited to review this app. But though an interesting app, I couldn’t find anything medical about it (as claimed by the developers).

The game follows the TV series in the sense that we see the world through JD’s eyes and also, most characters from the show are included. But unlike you would have guessed, this is just a hidden-objects game with some occasional mini-games. The game follows the story of a diamond, stolen from a patient (Dutchess) and in the course of searching for it, you are given lots of other tasks. Each level gives you a set of objects to be found and complete the task within limited time to proceed. Many scenes for the search are identical to that of the show and its a thrill for us fans. Not always are we shown the exact object to find, rather names of objects or their silhouettes are shown, which makes the game more difficult. Using inventory items like pool stick or vacuum cleaner and changing states of objects like opening a cupboard or closing a curtain are required to find some object and this makes the game tricky. Don’t worry because limited hints are available.

Successfully complete the quest to be greeted by stats and scores while on the other hand, if you run out of time, just restart the game; but, the objects and their positions vary in the new game and hence, replays are not boring with this one. Occasionally, mini games like wheel-chair racing, finding the ingredients of a medicine etc also come by your way (these games aren’t as exciting as it sounds).

To conclude, this is just a hidden-object game  with the theme of Scrubs but nothing different from identical games. Extra Time, Arrow hints, Area hints, Double points etc are available via In app purchases and hence, I believe that this game should be ideally placed as free just like most similar apps. The lack of animation and conversations via speech bubbles make the $1.99 price tag unjustified.
