What is Cute Jungle Hospital?
Cute Jungle Hospital is a click-n-drag game for young girls who want to experience what it's like to run an animal hospital.
  • Sick animals arrive periodically in the hall.
  • Match the icons the animals have above their head to the right door.
  • First you have to identify their illness, and then cure the illness.
  • Identifying and curing animals is done by playing the different mini-games in each room.
  • Cure animals and get coins to buy sweet items which you can put in the hall.
  • This game had over 2 million gameplays in the first week since launch!
