Hospital Havoc in Review – Heart Pumping Action! + 2 Promo Codes

hospitalhavoc1Hospital Havoc is a game which allows the player to take the role of doctor by admitting, diagnosing, and treating some of the most whacky patients ever encountered. With a challenging campaign, including three levels of difficulty to choose from, 20 career levels, 19 possible illnesses, 3 to 6 bed conditions, 10 addicting scenarios, Hospital Havoc is full twists and turns that will keep you entertained for a long time.

“Do you have what it takes to run your very own heart-pumping hospital? Help your doctor navigate through the havoc by admitting, diagnosing, and treating some of the most whacky patients ever encountered in their budding career. Calculate, strategize, and manage the hospital and expose your doctor to patients to gain notoriety and achieve the coveted position of Surgeon General.”

hospitalhavoc2Now, being a doctor can’t be too easy! After the doctor diagnoses the disease the patient happens to have, a prescription is written, and then filled by taking the form to the computer. From there, the medicine appears in the pharmacy, and then the patient can be treated! After being healed, the patient is then discharged, and then the nurse will have to go and clean up!

There are 3 ways to play Hospital Havoc: Career Play, Continuous Play, and Scenarios. It is recommended to start off in the Career, as that is essentially the tutorial. Continuous Play, as the name suggests, goes on continuously until you fail and get sick. Scenarios present a variety of different situations for the player to treat, such as sunburns, zombies, blindness, and more!

Controls are easily utilized. Everything is run by the touch pad, and tapping each object such as the patient, computer, trash can, and bed, will then be carried out by the doctor or nurse, which can be customized. The icons and items were large enough so that I never had difficulty selecting an item, but they weren’t too large to obstruct the action. Hospital Havoc is very easy to play, and the simple controls help lead to any easy to pick up, but eventually much more complex game.

hospitalhavoc3Scoring is attributed to the cleanliness of the hospital, so cleaning the bed, emptying the trash, and washing your hands will boost your score. Chaining actions will also be awarded with bonus points, such as entering 2 prescriptions into the computer. So as in any real life hospital, hygiene and speed are essential to a good rating!

In addition to the core gameplay, there are machines such as an IV drip, and Heart Monitor, while power-ups such as Shoes and a PDA will help care for the patient and improve the efficiency at the hospital. Options in Continuous Play include adjusting the difficulty (There are 5), enabling power-ups, cleanliness, and machines, plus the number of beds in the room and a time constraint. This makes for much varied gameplay if you’re bored of just the standard gameplay.

hospitalhavoc4Visually Hospital Havoc is a pleasure to look at. Fun and cartoony 3-D graphics, and smooth animations all make for an immersive experience. Even details such as the patients’ expressions are done well, and for those of you that just can’t stand bad looking games, not only does Hospital Havoc look great, it plays great also! The sounds are also well done, and add to the atmosphere of being in a hospital.
Some improvements that would be nice to see would be shorter loading times, as the Hospital Havoc often has long periods of waiting for the next scenario to start, especially the initial loading screen. Also, it would be nice if there were more nurses, or different assistants, as sometimes the characters just can’t handle all the things going on at once.

It’s on sale at $2.99, which is a great deal, but the original price of $6.99 is a bit high for my tastes, and especially for those who aren’t fans of this genre. Still, Hospital Havoc is a fun little time management game, and if you’ve always wanted to be a doctor, here’s your chance to become a Surgeon General!

Hospital Havoc gets kissed by TouchMyApps. Overall it’s great, but some people might want to pass if they don’t enjoy time management games.

Note: Bitwise  Design’s advertisement with TMA has had no bearing on this reviewer’s opinion of Hospital Havoc

    i played this on my friends ipod touch and actually found it quite fun, and I am not crazy about time management gamez. would be great to have it on my touch as well when i commute by train in the morning :)

  • susan

    Diner Dash is one of my favorite games on my iphone and this looks like it will be lots of fun. Love the whole hospital theme and the power ups seem like a good idea. Can’t wait to play it!

  • Niklaus

    My favorite time management game on my phone right now is actually supermarket mania. I dont know why but its really fun. It sounds like hospital havoc may be better, but its more expensive. Of course, you could always help a brother out :)

  • Nitish

    Hospital Havoc, save Time to save the Hospital from the Havoc caused. I haven’t been playing much Time Management Games as i’m a person who’s Lazy most of the time.

    But I have tried few of these kind of games like; Dinner Dash.

    These kinds of games have created some interest in me to follow and appreciate others’ time.

    Hospital Havoc seems easy on the Controls and have a smooth gaming experience overall. I wud like to have it on my iPod Touch, wish they had a Lite Version.

    But since Lite Versions are limited and loose out interest before we have a hang of the Game, i might just get lucky to have “Hospital Havoc”

    :)

  • Louis

    Hi Nitish. Actually there is a lite version, which was released just recently. Check it out here:

    http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=307747739&mt=8

  • Marie

    It’s actually on sale for 2.99 over the weekend-with all the replay ability, that’s a good value :)

  • Nitish

    Hey thanks Louis this is great, however like i already mentioned its a pain to repeat the same game over and over again in the Lite version.

    I hope I stand a chance to win a PROMO :D

  • Brendon

    this looks very fun, and frantic time management game.

  • Zach

    I love Time Management games like Hospital Havoc!
    This one looks especially fun because of controls that look really good and amazing graphics.
    Also, the gameplay in this game looks like a lot of fun!

  • Michael

    Looks good! a time management game with a hospital theme! Hopefully, by playing this game, I can apply it to me dealing with patients in the future, haha.

  • Ryan

    Looks really good! especially with your review

  • serge

    i just downloaded the lite version of hospital havoc and have been liking it so far. I do find it a bit hard, though that’s most likely because i suck at these games haha. Would love to pick up a promo for full game though! :)

  • LarryW

    6.99 is way too much for a tm game imo. from the review, hospital havoc seems like it can be fun in short spurts. the graphics are cute and the whole hospital theme makes the gameplay more interesting

  • Marie

    HH is on sale for 2.99 through the weekend, then it will prob go back to 4.99-

  • Irene

    I love time management games simply because I am a gal and this game lets me cure patients and earn merit points I hope.

  • Jeremy

    Time Management games are awesome.

  • derek007

    I just tried hospital havoc “free” and while i think it is quite good, it kind of bugs me that you have to constantly wash your hands at the sink for those extra points needed to finish a level. Well I suppose that’s what docs have to do in real life. Though I have seen enough to want to play all the levels and scenarios in the full version. Personally, I think 2.99 is the perfect price for games like this.

  • Corey

    Great review I have vey few time management games if any at all. This would be great for a long lecture next week.

  • John

    I really love the lite and i hope i win the full!

  • John

    This is even better than Flight control!

  • Fletch

    Looks like a fun new take on the time management genre. I really like the graphics too.

  • DonBurns99

    The scenarios in this game seem like a nice twist to the standard time management game. Special situations outside of normal game play to possibly try new things and think outside the box a little. This one seems to have a great amount of replay value, possibly even one of the best TM games out there. I’m hoping to see more of it soon enough. ^ ^

  • Ben

    Didn’t play any time management game yet. They all looked too girly, but this one finally looks it’s worth a try.

  • crapz1967

    Looks pretty cool!
    Just read your review and also watched a video on YouTube to see how it looks like in action. Well, my first impressions are very positive: The graphics are very polished, the gameplay seems to be easy too and the different game modes, scenarios, stages and customization options add lots of replay value. I also like how the ingame buttons and features are made. And finally the sale price make it quite interesting because I probably wouldn’t pick it up for 6.99$, but now it’s quite affordable.
    Anyway, the only other time management game I have is Airport Mania and I really enjoy it, so I think I would like this one, too.
    Good luck to everyone who entered,

  • Jade

    Looks like a great game from first impressions. Played the lite version and have to say it’s quite fun and impressive.

  • Chris60

    This sounds like a pretty fun game. I have been waiting to try one of these time management style games and this looks like it might be the best one to start out with and like the review says, this is as close as I am going to get to being a real doctor.

  • Jason

    This TM game looks absolutely AMAZING. It’s good to see another great TM game in the App Store :)

  • Gabriel

    Looks like a great game!

  • Louis

    ===============================================
    Congrats to Fletch and Brendon for winning a code each for this great time management game!

    Enjoy!

  • warren bryan

    My thoughts are exactly like this this game wich i have played it already its very awesome its kinda like the diner dash but not in this game your a doctor like the dash games you have to set up the customers and get their order but infact this game you put patients in bed and do alot of interacting and diagnosing the patients and its a very fun and a fast paced game where it is time to save the patients life that is so awesome they should come out with a part 2 of hospital havoc i give this game out of a 1 to 10 as 10 being the best i rate this a 10 because of how game play is and diffrent things you have to do with the patients
