House M.D.: Critical Cases is a new online social game available exclusively on Facebook from Ubisoft, and based on the awarded series from Universal, it mixes role playing, puzzles, hidden objects and mini-games.
In House, M.D. : Critical Cases, you’ve been recruited to be the newest staff member at Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital. Join House and his entire team as you work alongside your friends to help diagnose the most challenging medical cases and save lives! Run tests, treat patients and go toe-to-toe with House in one of the most anticipated social games of the year!
In House MD: Critical Cases, you are the doctor. You are tasked with solving medical mysteries called Critical Cases. At the beginning of the game you will be introduced to your first critical case patient, Sam Krause. The game will walk you through the tutorial. Click there the arrows are pointing. Clicking the arrows will not work; you must click where they point.
You complete various mini game objectives to diagnose critical patients. Once you complete objectives, you meet House and the team at the whiteboard to brainstorm ideas. As you gather evidence possible diseases are cancelled out. When only one remains you can treat the patient. This treatment either cures the patient or is ineffective. If it is ineffective, it is back to the drawing board for you!
Some of the mini games are as follow, each with different gameplay styles and goals:
Hidden Object Scenes
At certain points in critical cases you will be asked to search places for certain clues in order to diagnose a disease. When the flashlight pops up, click it, and you will be taken to the scene. At the bottom of the screen there will be a list of items you must find. You find these items in the scene in order to discover clues that you can take back with you to the white board.
To complete the blood analysis minigame you click on the moving items that match the specified item on the left hand side of the screen. Some are easier to catch than others, so you have to be quick!
When doing the imaging minigame, you must match two squares to each other. First, click the square. An icon should pop up. Your goal is to find the matching icon. You continue to do this throughout the game.
