Steam Edit

Game about the difficult work of people that manage emergency lines and services. Your task is to answer incoming calls and to react properly - give first aid instructions, advise, dispatch correct number of firemen / police / ambulances, or sometimes - just ignore the call.

Microsoft Store Edit

Reception Edit

911 Operator (PC Edition) scored 68 on Metacritic, indicating mixed or average reviews. CD-Action supported the educational elements of the game, such as learning about symptoms related to medical conditions, but criticized that there was "hardly any game in 911 Operator." Alec Meer of Rock, Paper, Shotgun wrote the game was "definitely effective at creating tension" but became "increasingly one-note" after a few hours of gameplay.

New Game Network's Alex V. also found the game lacked substantial variety, noting voice calls became repetitive and the "game becomes a simple color-matching exercise" of sending appropriate personnel to the color-coded emergency icons. Overall, he found that 911 Operator had potential and a "winning formula" in its gameplay, but the lack of variety limited the gameplay. Johnathan Irwin of Hooked Gamers graded the game a 7.0/10, praising its gameplay and the options for various maps, but noting that the game eventually became repetitive. 

Game Grin's Nathan Saretzky also gave 911 Operator a 7/10 rating, concluding it was an "wonderfully executed arcade game" which succeeded at being "simple and fun." However, Saretzky criticized the repeated calls and felt the gameplay would be better suited for a touch-based system.

The Xbox One release of 911 Operator received similarly mixed reviews. Xbox Tavern's Anthony Cole posited that it "houses an interesting idea but doesn’t back it up with any depth," finding the game repetitive, simplistic, and boring.Neil Watton of The Xbox Hub criticized the repetitive gameplay and "awkward" controls, though the general concept of the game "clever."

Writing for TrueAchievements, Marc Hollinshead praised its educational and strategical elements, but commented "repetition creeps in quickly," particularly in regard to the repeated voice calls.[9]
