Animal Park Tycoon (Video Game Review)
Animal Park Tycoon allows players to begin their own animal park that will soon turn into one of the most lavish establishments around. Players earn money by receiving visitors, and the only way to draw in more guests is to make the park more attractive. All types of animals can be purchased and plucked from the wild to find a new home in the park. The game currently allows up to 15 species to live together in the park, and players will have 6 diverse habitats to keep the animals feeling at home from plains and mountains to the arctic and jungles. The game becomes even more exciting when trying to mix and match the right animals to the correct locations in order to unlock special legendary animals for the park that includes mythical creatures such as Cthulu and Red Dragons. Of course, having all the animals in the world means nothing unless a park is outfitted with plenty of great decorations and the best stylish designs the game has to offer, so money must be managed with the different aspects of the park being budgeted correctly. Eventually, players can hire on enough additional workers for their park that makes gameplay too mindless, and the game can literally be left setting for hours while earning cash for the next big upgrade for the park, but Animal Park Tycoon is definitely fun while it lasts.
The world of Animal Park Tycoon is colorful and easy to get sucked into. The adorable animal sprites will have you trying to unlock them all for your park, and makes choosing which animal to keep and which to send back to the wild very troublesome. A cheery soundtrack and sound effects accompany the great graphics to keep your attention on the game even while playing on the go. Despite being a mostly single player experience,Animal Park Tycoon includes several social features that allow you to share money and animals with your friends, and there are plenty of challenging mini-games to switch up the action when the normal campaign becomes too repetitive.

Decorate your park with spooky greenery or an infestation of zombie lions! The Christmas themed pack adds even more great content when you unlock Yetis, reindeer and more for your park or even hire Santa Claus to bring plenty of festive cheer for your park attendees. There is a lot to see and do in Animal Park Tycoon, and you can enjoy it all for free!
