Zoo Vet: Endangered Animals Now Available for PC Download

Legacy Interactive announced today that its award winning Zoo Vet: Endangered Animals simulation game is now available for download at www.legacygames.com. The PC downloadable Zoo Vet: Endangered Animals contains the same realistic 3D game play as the retail version because Legacy utilized Flash to squeeze over one gigabyte of content into 50 MB. Now everyone and anyone can have easy access to download the game and see if they have what it takes to be a real life veterinarian.

“The retail version of Zoo Vet: Endangered Animals was a hit with our casual gaming audience and this Flash optimization has opened up a new channel of distribution making the game available to a much broader audience,” said Ariella Lehrer, CEO, Legacy Interactive. “We have already had great success with many of our other PC downloadable games and are certain that Zoo Vet: Endangered Animals will be added to that list.”

The reality-based Zoo Vet: Endangered Animals is the follow-up to the 2005 hit Zoo Vet. The retail version has garnered awards including the coveted 2007 Editors Choice Award from the Children’s Technology Review, the 2008 Parent’s Choice Gold Circle Award and the 2008 iParenting Media Award.

The game features 30 scenarios created by actual veterinarians in which players treat 20 different endangered animals including a lion, elephant and panda in situations ranging from setting an eagle’s broken wing to saving a crocodile that has swallowed a penny. A cast of colorful characters assist in teaching animal lovers about actual medical tools, animal statistics, vet techniques and true-to-life zoo maladies. Also included are zoo animal trivia and jigsaw puzzles, as well as fascinating conservation information provided by the African Wildlife Foundation, which benefits from a portion of the game’s proceeds.

Zoo Vet: Endangered Animals is rated E 10+.
