We spent the first ten minutes of Zoo Hospital rubbing a baboon, trying to locate its %26lsquo;sweet spot%26rsquo;. It felt strange (the scenario, not the baboon) but such is the life of a vet, and before long you%26rsquo;ll be shaving bison and soothing zebras. Basically, this is Trauma Center for animals: identify a sick creature%26rsquo;s ailment and set about curing it.
Things start simple, with point %26rsquo;n%26rsquo; click injections. As you progress, treatments become more involved, requiring procedures to be strung together in a set time. Controls are tight and the faster you heal, the better your rank. Unlocking the exotic animals is fun but it won%26rsquo;t take long, and once you%26rsquo;re done there%26rsquo;s little reason to return. Trauma heads may want to rent but it%26rsquo;s too light to consider buying.
