Wait for one new Zynga game and two come bouncing along, just like a cuddly animal would. Note the tenuous link? Yup, Zynga's new title is all about taking care of exotic and zany animals in a zoo.
Dream Zoo is another first for Zynga. Their first zoo themed game to be exact, presumably ensuring that casual gamers with all types of interests will be hooked by at least one Zynga game at some time. Interestingly, it's also the first Zynga title to offer bonuses and in-game rewards based upon playing in multiple different locations.
Players are given the opportunity to breed and collect thousands of different animal varieties in a way that's bound to hook 'gotta catch em all' style addicts. A selection of mini-games give the player the chance to pet and tend to their animals with feeding and washing games simple yet fun to play.
All manners of animals are catered for from aardvarks to zebras. Going on safari enables players to discover these different species while also having plenty of fun along the way! Players can even breed different animals together to create all new and unique types of creatures. Along the way, players can also collect up other items on safari, thus boosting their zoo's looks or finances. Once everything is arranged just how the player wants it, they can take photos of their animals to show off to others.
We all know and love what Zynga has to offer the freemium gaming world and it looks like the magic has transferred to the world of zoo keeping in Dream Zoo. Like other Zynga titles, it's a free app with plenty of in-app purchase based options. Fortunately, it's not essential to progression, it just speeds things up a little.
For those looking for a new free to play fix, Dream Zoo is out now.
