Zoo Empire is a 3D interactive construction and management simulation, much like Zoo Tycoon and Wildlife Park before it. The player must successfully create and manage a zoo that gathers sufficient profits. As the player moves through the game, he will acquire objects that can improve game play. The object of the game is to create a "zoo empire". Zoo Empire has a platinum edition, Marine Park Empire, which added aquariums and marine animals, but also includes the other animals.
