The most infectious thing about Hospital Tycoon is its humour as players experience how the game's characters the doctors, nurses and patients interact with each other and react to how well the player is running each hospital. The game's high level of character interaction will create a living hospital that's part soap opera and part comedy.
A move away from micro-management life-simulation games, Hospital Tycoon will create emerging situations that are as entertaining as they are challenging. The manic medical teams have to deal with patients suffering from the most peculiar ailments, such as the man afflicted with 'Monkey Nuts' and the office worker diagnosed with 'Stress Zombosis', and set about curing them with equally odd treatments.
At the Sapphire Beach Medical Institute, the lives and loves of the hospital's doctors and nurses, as well as the sneezes and diseases of its patients, will come alive this June when Hospital Tycoon launches exclusively for PC. Fusing 'Tycoon' style gameplay with character simulation and a light-hearted narrative, Hospital Tycoon is set to give players a soap-opera feel as they progress through episodes of hospital drama's Story Mode.
Each episode in Hospital Tycoon explores a plot involving certain members of the hospital's staff and some very interesting patients, while at the same time challenging players to find cures for bizarre new illnesses. Diseases range from the everyday Explosive Sneezing - where a simple sneeze can launch the unfortunate patient several feet into the air, to the more rare Monkey Nuts - where patients sprout fur, climb furniture and favour bananas over everyday person food.
Hospital Tycoon staff members have rich behaviours that players can nurture and influence throughout the game. Gamers may choose to encourage a friendship or a falling-out of sorts, and can train staff to improve their skill levels. Players will also be challenged to manage and maintain each hospital, creating dedicated areas to support additional medical needs, including surgery, diagnosis, physiotherapy and more.
As more patients are cured, the more players can expand their medical empire and attract new, and even more interesting patients. However, as the hospital becomes busier, players will have to be on the lookout for the spread of infectious conditions or they'll soon have an epidemic running riot throughout the facility.
I bought this for the reason pretty much everyone else did, Theme Hosp Ital. I had bought a new computer and Theme Hospital disappointingly wouldn't work on it. Read morePublished on 10 Feb. 2009 by Mary Ellen O. Keeffe
