Summary: 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, come alive. Fusing Tycoon-style gameplay with character simulation and a light-hearted narrative, Hospital Tycoon gives 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 favor bananas over everyday person food. Hospital Tycoon staff members have rich behaviors 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 are also 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 have to be on the lookout for the spread of infectious conditions or they'll soon have an epidemic running riot throughout the facility. [Codemasters]
