Unleash your creativity in Let's Build a Zoo! With over 500 animals and 300,000 unique combinations to discover, you'll design the zoo of your dreams. Manage your staff, breed rare creatures, and even splice DNA to create new species. Your choices matter - will you run an ethical zoo or bend the rules for profit?


What we like:
  • Adorable pixel art graphics
  • Unique DNA splicing feature
  • Engaging management system
  • Moral choices that impact gameplay
  • Potential for mod support
What could be improved:
  • Repetitive tasks and tedious micromanagement
  • Annoying animal food management
  • Lack of scroll bar in menus
  • Steep cost of zoo expansion
