In Wildlife Tycoon: Venture Africa, you are given a series of challenges to create working ecosystems on the African veldt. There are elephants, giraffes, wildebeests, rabbits, zebras, lions, hyenas, vultures and more. You have to earn points that allow you to create rain and choose more animals to inhabit your world. You earn points by meeting certain animals requirements.
The game has more than a dozen different stages to work through with different difficulty levels. Game play is static, meaning you do the same things over and over again, but does require some strategy. It is also frustrating to find the proper balance of nature.
While this game is fun for a while, it becomes either too repetitive or to frustrating before long. It can be educational for older children if they are learning about ecosystems and the relationship between herbivores and carnivores.
