Jane's Zoo is a nice time management game in which you are in charge of an entire zoo. In every level, you'll have a certain goal that you have to achieve in the time given in order to get to the next one. The first thing you should do each morning is let the animals out of their houses. Then, you have to feed them or give them water if needed and also clean their cages. You should always pay attention to the animals signals to know what to do. If an animal is dirty you should take it to the bathhouse for a wash. The animals may also need a manicure, hair cut, etc., or they also may get sick and you'll have to take them to the hospital. At the end of the day, you have to send the animals back to their houses. Apart from these and other daily tasks, you also should pay attention to the weather. If it rains, you have to take your animals into their houses. All the animals have different patience levels, so if you satisfy the animal's requests quickly, you'll earn extra points. There are also other bonuses that may appear randomly on the screen. Click on them as they appear to get them. Also, with the money you get everyday you can buy stuff to make your animals happier.
What is more, the game includes two difficulty modes: Normal (special for beginners) and Expert (which makes the game more challenging for advanced players).
Regarding the graphics, they are nice, but not really detailed. Sound effects are OK and the music is pleasant, but a bit repetitive.
All in all, Jane's Zoo is a nice time management game that will surely attract animal lovers and fans of this genre.
