Practice makes perfect. Surgical doctors-in-training residents all around the world have access to various box trainers and virtual reality simulators to train and maintain their laparoscopic skill set. However, due to a high workload, at the end of the day not everyone has time and energy to practice on these repetitive machines. By turning these drills into a fun and engaging video game, experienced doctors and doctors-in-training can practice them at home, and, more importantly, have fun while doing so.

An interesting, quirky puzzle game that fails to thrill despite its uniqueness

Read full review

'Underground' manages to overcome its niche edutainment roots with a taxing and unique puzzler, in spite of fairly clunky controls and a difficult camera.

Given that Underground is half game and half educational tool, it's impressive that the developer has made it so appealing to the general public. Challenging gameplay, unique controls and a surprisingly engaging storyline all held together with a glue of unadulterated charm makes this game a real joy to play. It's got a few potential bugs to consider at launch, but they aren't particularly detrimental to the overall experience. Underground is a roller coaster of a puzzle game that manages to bring something truly original to the Wii U eShop.

Looking at Underground without knowing anything about its basic concept will probably leave you unimpressed. It does not have great graphics or a great story, but Grendel Games came up with a very cool idea in matters of controls and puzzle game mechanics, hoping that Underground can develop into something bigger than a simple eShop release on Wii U.
