Story

A zoo manager's job today is a difficult tightrope act between keeping his animals happy, attracting visitors and economizing. Build and manage your own zoo. Master the challenge of keeping your zoo profitable while having fun observing visitors and animals in all kinds of possible and impossible situations.

Life-Sim

Create the ideal living conditions for your animals and be rewarded by the sight of pandas, elephants, penguins, monkeys and many more animals in their happy everyday life, playing, eating, sleeping, and even rearing their young. On the other hand, if the animals are not looked after properly, they tend to get listless or aggressive, they fall ill easily and may even die. It's up to you to make your animals feel at home in your zoo by providing each species with appropriate environments as far as possible.

Build-up Strategy

Where do you want to build your zoo in a temperate climate or an extreme environment like the desert or the Arctic? Before you can introduce your animals to their new homes, you've got to lay out and maintain climatic zones on your grounds, build appropriate enclosures for the various species and furnish them imaginatively. Visitors to the zoo should be treated to something new around every corner, and the ways, e.g. to the toilet or the souvenir shop, mustn't be too long. No time to rest on your laurels maybe the monkeys need a bigger compound because of an addition to their family, or the long-wished-for pandas have finally arrived, and you must take care that the necessary conversions or extensions won't get too expensive or take too long. Always take into account and allow for the most varied contingencies.

Business Simulation

The principle is easy: Earn more than you spend. It's up to you how you manage that. You might try breeding animals or encouraging more visitors with ever new attractions and then squeezing money out of them at the ice cream and hot dog stands. Your staff, on the other hand, should do their jobs well without getting too expensive.

Once again: all that matters is that the money's OK - and that's your job!
