'Plasma Patrol' is a game about blood cancers

Engaging and fun

Xploro’s games introduce young patients to treatments, biological and physiological concepts in a more abstract way, all the while having lots of fun.

The very nature of the games means they engage kids from the outset, and our multiplayer features means they can easily connect with friends and family.

By using gamification and rewards systems Xploro also allows clinicians to capture patient-reported outcomes which are important for continuous clinical improvement.

Heart Race

Fly along the wave of an on-screen heartbeat collecting goodies while staying within the lines. Heart Race introduces children to the Patient Monitor in this fun game they can play against their friends.

Plasma Patrol

Travel through the bloodstream collecting vitamins, platelets and lymphocytes, while destroying cancer cells and avoiding pathogens and fat cells. Plasma Patrol highlights to kids some of the components of blood and introduces them to chemotherapy.

Bendy Bones

Join matching colored boxes together with a bendy bone and reveal a fascinating fact about the skeletons of humans and animals.

Proton Power

Based on the concept of proton beam therapy, this game illustrates how precise targeting of a high powered beam is important to reach your goal. Proton Power is fun, challenging and keeps kids coming back for more.

Stitch and Slide

Connect the matching colored pegs and join the ice sheets together in this game that teaches children about stitches, scars and wounds.

Snack Attack

Snack Attack emphasizes the importance of fasting before a sedative. The player drives a car to the hospital and the aim of the game is to swerve, jump or otherwise avoid the hotdogs, fries and doughnuts which block their way. To win, they must avoid the food, collect stars, and get to the hospital on time.

Jigsaw Junction

The goal of Jigsaw Junction is to complete a jigsaw puzzle of the hospital’s sedation unit. The message to patients is to understand the importance of preparing for their visit to what might be a large facility which could be tricky to find their way around. With three difficulty levels this game is challenging enough for children of all ages.

Surf’s Up

Surf’s up introduces the concept of a sedative as medicine molecules which must be collected. As the name suggests, the player’s avatar is on a surfboard and it’s the patient’s job to guide them through the waves, all the way to Dreamland, collecting sedative medicine on the way.


Dreamland is a magical place where time stands still and, in the world of Xploro, it’s where you go when you’re sedated. The player’s avatar lands on the shore and must explore Dreamland collecting stars and pieces of the Clockmaker’s clock. When all five have been gathered together and returned to the Clockmaker, the player’s avatar comes out of their sedated state and wakes up in the recovery room.

Dreamland is an abstract way of helping youngsters understand what it means to undergo sedation.

Pick Quick

The Sedation storybook rounds off with a quiz show. The player answers multiple choice questions designed to reinforce what they’ve learned while playing the Sedation storybook.

As standard, Pick Quick is related to sedation but it is easily customised to help support children learning about any aspect of the healthcare journey.
