Theme Hospital is a business simulator developed by Bullfrog Productions and published by Electronic Arts for the PC in 1997.
It's the second game in Bullfrog Productions' Theme series, and was proceeded by Theme Park. Later it was ported to Playstation, DOS, Macintosh, and Playstation Network. Peter Molyneux and James Leach came up with the idea for the game together, but as Molyneux was working on Dungeon Keeper, he was not otherwise involved in development.
The player begins the game in an empty building. For there they must assemble rooms . These rooms hold diagnostic equipment. Once your rooms are up and ready, you must run them with staff, doctors and patients. As the levels go by you face harder situations, like epidemics and earthquakes.
The first thing you have to know about this game is that it is full of humor, and pop culture references. Patients will come in with diseases like spare rib, bloaty head, slack tongue, and alien DNA. It's also incredibly addicting. It's tough to play just one level. The graphics are a little bit sub-par, but the rest of the game makes up for them. It's one of the best simulation games out there, next to The Sims. The game sold 4 million copies worldwide.
