Our favourite Op Ouch! doctors are back to tickle your funny bones in our excitingly gruesome new game: Invasion of the Snotulons. This time round, they're going INSIDE the wonderfully disgusting human body! Blurghhh!

Following the huge success of Snot Apocalypse and Clonewards, CBBC commissioned us to create a third web game in our franchise of medical mayhem, all based around the hit CBBC show Operation Ouch!

Invasion of the Snotulons takes on a bold new direction, one that requires the additional help of latest Ouch! cast member, Dr Ronx. Together, the three doctors get up close and personal, to tackle an invasion of the Snotulon kind. After Dr Chris gets invaded by Snotulons, the player must shrink to the size of a cell and enter the sickly neon insides of his poorly body. From here, the player must combat the Snotulon infection which has spread to Dr Chris' vital organs: the stomach, lungs and brain.

The deadly infection is characterised by Snotulons - hordes of rampant and relentlessly gunky creatures that are hellbent on shutting down Dr Chris' body. Your mission? Simple. Beat the clock to beat the snot!

Taking on the role of doctor-meets-snot slayer, the player has to scan, find and treat the Snotulons. Scanning Dr Chris' body against the clock, the player must identify the location of bones, vital organs and body parts as they detect and search for the medicine hidden around Chris' body. In this part of the game, kids' knowledge basic human biology is put to the test in a fun and fast-paced way that doesn't feel like learning. 

Once the site of infection has been located, players enter a first-person shooter perspective within a 3D playable zone, here they must help Dr Xand treat the infection, with the time they have remaining. Here, players must battle against the Snot-o-meter timer and shoot as many enemy germs as possible using a Medicator gun.  In this first-person 'treater' (see what we did there?), there are two types of gameplay mode used to treat the infection: sniper mode, which lets you zoom in and shoot distant Snotulons, and multiply mode, where an explosive grenade-style weapon is used to blast Snotulons at close range. The main aim of the game is to clear each wave before getting sneezed out. Compare your high scores and ranking progress with your friends and work your way up from a Newbie Bogey Bandit to a Super Snot Sniper! 

The game launched on the CBBC website in May and already has over 14k reaction emojis. Here are a few of our favourite responses that kids have left in the comment section:

"It's so aweseome! My favourite medicine-blaster is the purple one, because I love using rapid fire on the Snotulons." 

"I love Operation Ouch! #Call the doctor"

"Omg guys I got to the rank Ace Snotulon slayer ?

"I completed the whole game - it was really fun and I am going to play again!"

To save Dr Chris and start your snot sniping adventure, head over to the CBBC website! Here, you can also watch real-life Dr Chris, Dr Xand and Dr Ronx play the game and go head-to-head for the best score.
