Controls & indicators
The upper left corner of the game has a full screen mode button. Next to the full screen mode button is an indicator showing how much cash savings you have and what your earnings rate is. Underneath the full screen mode button is a lucky wheel which you can spin to activate a click bonus which lasts for 5 minutes.
In the upper right corner there is a settings button which pauses the game and brings up a menu with the following options: go to game welcome screen, sound control, resume play, restart level & game information.
When an exhibit is available for unlock an indicator will show above it.
You can scroll through all your current unlocked animal exhibits to upgrade them. When you can afford an upgrade the button will turn orange.
You can click on the main administration building to purchase zoo-wide upgrades.
Your main aim is to restore old zoos. Restore habitats in the zoo that will generate income, upgrade items in your administrative building and grow your income even more, research new animals so you can build them in the next level.
In this game the zoo passively makes money and you can make additional income by upgrading various parts of the zoo and repeatedly clicking on the screen.
If you go idle and do not click on anything the max income the zoo can earn in the idle state is the regular rate of earnings for 180 minutes before you have to play again to gain further earnings.
Your click earnings are roughly half of the passive minute rate each time you click, meaning you earn about 100 times faster by clicking the background quickly than you would if you passively played the game.
In the upper left corner of the game there is a picture of a spin wheel.
When you spin the wheel it provides a click bonus of 10% to 100%.
The bonus lasts for 5 minutes.
When the bonus wears off you can activate the spin wheel again.
Concession stands earn money, but you have to click on them to collect it when a money icon appears above them.
