Free Simulation Game for Strategy Fans

Zoo Tycoon allows gamers to find out what it would be like to create and manage their very own zoo. This is the first instalment of the now very popular franchise and is endlessly playable.

Making the Perfect Zoo

Zoo Tycoon comes packed with fully manipulative features such as kiosks and of course the zoo animals themselves. However there is much more to the game than simply designing a cool zoo. In order to progress through the game players also have to make sure that their zoo is turning a profit which means that they also need to have a head for business. At times maintaining the balance between creating a zoo and running a business can be tough. Fortunately the tutorial is packed with hints and tips to keep gamers on the right track and if they are willing to put in lots of time and show true commitment they will be able to create the perfect zoo that customers want to visit time and time again.

Do You have What it Takes to be a Zoo Tycoon?

People who have a love for simulation and strategy games are sure to have fun playing Zoo Tycoon. Although the game requires that players put in plenty of hours it is highly addictive and there are lots of cool features to play around with.
