As a recent Veterinary College grad, you must help your Aunt Lucy heal a myriad of exotic animals and save the once world-famous Zoo Hospital from a businessman's bulldozer by attracting more visitors. Zoo Hospital lets you diagnose and treat more than 40 different species of birds, mammals and reptiles while interning at a world-famous zoo.

“Zoo Hospital is a fun and compelling combination of Touch Screen medical mini-games with a wide array of exotic and endangered species,” said John Merchant, Marketing Manager, Majesco Europe. “Budding vets and animal lovers will gain exposure to different animals while learning how to soothe and care for them via real veterinary techniques.”

In Zoo Hospital, players begin with 10 wild animal species including: jaguar, zebra, chimp, panda, hyena, kangaroo, lion, eagle, cobra and the endangered fossa. Gamers must identify and treat their ailments, while checking vital signs and learning how to calm their stressed patients. Players use the Touch Screen and stylus to tackle challenging medical mini-games, including: administering injections, applying ointment, bandaging appendages, pulling teeth, x-raying organs and much more.

Step-by-step tutorials are available for novice practitioners and a Doctor’s Observational Computerized Clipboard will assist players in determining various ailments. A two-player cooperative mode also allows friends to team up to treat their animal charges.
