Zoo 2: Animal Park is a zoo simulation game where you get to design and build your very own virtual zoo and fill it up with all of your favorite zoo animals. There are plenty of beautiful decorations you can buy and place, ranging from a myriad of flowers to street lamps and benches. Set up stalls to sell refreshments and souvenirs to your visitors, and don’t forget to place facilities like toilets and trach cans as well! Will you be able to keep growing your family’s zoo so as to stop others from shutting it down?
One day, you received a letter from your grandfather telling you of the passing of your great aunt Josephine. She owned a zoo and had passed that down to her remaining family. Your grandparents are, however, too old to take care of the zoo on their own, so it now falls on you to lend them a hand and rejuvenate the failing zoo. You’ll need to be quick though! Many external forces, from the mayor to the nefarious neighbor, are hell-bent on shutting your family’s zoo down, and you simply cannot let that happen!
If you’ve played Upjers’ zoo simulation, My Free Zoo, then you should already have a really good idea of what this game is all about. This is just an updated version of the original, complete with more gorgeous 3D graphics and more flexibility when it comes to designing your virtual zoo.
Like the original, any animal you want to bring into your zoo will first require an enclosure. There are many types of enclosures, each of them is suitable for a different variety of animals. These enclosures can only house 1 animal species each, though the number of animals of the same species it can contain vary depending on the upgrades you’ve spend game cash on.
Please take note that every enclosure - or anything that your visitors can interact with, really – will need to be placed right next to a path that’s connected to the entrance or your visitors will not be able to visit the animals in them.
You can also spend some money on buying some useful items such as a trough, which will help feed your animals even when you’re offline, along with beautiful decorations. The enclosures will gradually get dirty over time as well. When this happens, you just need to tap on the Brush icon and start swiping over the muddy animal paw prints on the ground to clean the place up. If not, your animals will become lifeless and this will impact the number of visitors at your zoo.
To match the many variety of enclosures, you will also be able to buying a nice selection of animals. These animals will require a couple of things to be happy – food, hygiene, and some play time. In terms of food, Zoo 2: Animal Parks provides you with 3 choices. There’s the free option which doesn’t give as much experience points (XP). You can also buy food using coins (game currency) or diamonds (premium currency), which will grant you more XP per feeding.
We’ve already covered enclosure hygiene, so let’s move on to “play time”. Like your real-life pets, you’ll need to spend some time playing with your animals just so you can give them the attention they need.
Keeping your animals happy is one thing; keeping your visitors happy is another. Your visitors will need certain facilities like toilets and trash cans, and you’ll need to provide them. Decorations are also important since they beautify the place and improve the mood of your visitors.
By the way, everything you buy in this game will slowly fill up the Visitor bar at the top left section of your screen. Once filled, a new visitor will drop by your zoo. Your goal is to get as many visitors as you can since more visitors means more profits; and more profits means that other people like the mayor and the nefarious neighbor will not be able to shut down your family zoo.
All the new enclosures, decorations and animals you buy require quite a bit of coins though, and unfortunately, the game only has 3 ways for you to earn coins, albeit at a rather slow rate. The first being collecting your ticket sale earnings from the entrance of your zoo. You can get the most cash here consistently as long as you remember to log in frequently throughout the day.
You can also set up various stalls around your zoo to sell your visitors stuff like refreshments, snacks and souvenirs. Like the ticket sales, you will need to periodically collect your earnings because each stall can only hold so much cash. You can even upgrade your stalls to earn more cash. From time to time, you may complete achievements too, and these completions usually reward you with a ton of coins. However, you don’t really obtain achievements often, so you cannot really rely on getting achievements as a way to earn some cash in this game.
Now, if you’re looking to spend some real money just to make the game better for you, then you will want to buy some diamonds. Diamonds are the premium currency of the game and will allow you to not only purchase exclusive premium items, but also lets you speed up construction processes. There are limited-time packages that you can buy as well, which will usually include exotic, and sometimes rare, animals – literal animal magnets to attract more visitors - for your zoo.
Zoo 2: Animal Park is a very social game, and as such, you are encouraged to add as many friends as you can. These friends aren’t just for show though! In this game, you can actually help them out with some chores and collect hearts in return. When you have enough of these hearts, you can then receive a friendship chest that contains plenty of goodies for your efforts.
The graphics in Zoo 2: Animal Park are definitely a couple of notches up from the original game it is based on. The 3D models are simply so well-designed, and this is particularly true for the animals – oh my gosh, they just looked so amazing and real! The sound in this game is pretty all right as well, but honestly, I find it only “serviceable” in comparison to the graphics we get to enjoy.
In short, Zoo 2: Animal Park is a gorgeous zoo simulation game that kept all of the amazing features of the original and introduced a couple of tweaks to make the game better, overall. However, like many players have voiced in their comments, the rate of coin earning is unfortunately rather slow and at some point, you may be really tempted to spend some real money just so you can move things along a little faster.
That being said, Zoo 2: Animal Park is really a game worth playing, especially if you’ve enjoyed My Free Zoo before, and you can get it for free on both Google Play and the App Store.
