I love tap zoo the way it is but here are a few improvents you can make1. If there was a coral reef in the ocean you could have fish, sharks, and sting rays in the wild. Then an ocean ferry could drive the tourists out to see them.2. If there were caves the tourists could go with a guide to walk in the caves. 3. If there sky diving for the tourists they could get a full veiw of the zoo and see more stuff want to do4. If there was scuba diving they will see all kinds of new animals they want to lean about. Then they would head to the education center to pay for a class.These are just a few changes you make the game better with. Or make a new game just make sure you say I helped! :-)
Fun game with annoyingly catchy music
By: Sgt gunshow - Sep 10, 2010
This game is tons of fun if you were/are a fan of zoo tycoon or any sims game. The background music is a happy catchy tune that becomes more and more addicting the more you play the game!! The one thing i would like better about this game is that the animals that cost "stars" could also be bought with coins(but for a higher price). All-in-all a great game and if memory space on your itouch or iphone is not an issue, you should definetly contemplate downloading it!!
MERCIFUL HEAVENS I just bred a PEGASUS!!!!
By: Emberscript - Oct 6, 2010
Oh my gosh, oh my gosh, oh my GOSH!!!!I just bred 2 of my animals and used instant stars....I got a Pegasus! Can you tell I'm excited!Now I'm crazy to know what all the other crossbreeds will be!I purposely didn't mention which animals, because I don't want to spoil the fun, but I will create a thread in the Streetview Labs forums. Hopefully others will go to the website too so we can share pictures.So Very excited to see new breedable animals!!The customer service team is fantastic! I hope this version fixed the bugs so I can spend more money and make my zoo exactly what I would like to visit in real life!!!!
Great little game
By: LMountford - Sep 26, 2010
Cute graphics. Nice way to "waste" some time while waiting at Dr's office, etc. It's totally possible to play the game without spending real money to purchase stars. You just have to do without some things. Not a big deal at all. To accumulate more coins quickly, purchase *2* of an animal and breed one more. That will triple your coins earned. Also, maintain an A+ rating -- that will give you the most daily earnings. (Hint: make sure you have enough bathrooms!!) :-)

This is a great and fun app, but getting the stars for free take really long and I really don't wanna spend $150 for the amount of stars I need...lol I guess my zoo will just develop a little slower than I would like and I won't be able to get all of the species...to me, it's not that big of a deal that I would stop playing or give a bad review. But it WOULD be nice if the developers changed this :)
Fun Low Maintenance TAP game!
By: Mnalacour - Oct 7, 2010
I have a lot of fin with this App! The only stinker is they need to have some ways to win stars inside the game! Like, if you breed 15x's you receive 5 stars. Something to that affect! We know they want to make money but the way to do that is to give a little! Offer up some stars, (a lot this way) if someone was to win a contest of some kind. People will then play more and get hooked therefore buying addtl stars so they can finally "JUST FINISH THEIR DARN ZOO ALREADY!!" What I adore about this tap app is the cutsieLil animals, the not so expensive must have items, VERY LOW MAINTENANCE! I'M so tired of having to buy stars to resurrect everything because I miss a night or two! This App doesn't do that! No animals were harmed n the playing of this App! HA HA! Seriously tho I am a stay home mother of 3 n if I'm lucky my 2 yr old will take a nap so I can get housework done, college school work done and if I'm lucky get in some App time. Ultimately Extremely less frustrating and forgiving of an App for those who are busy or sometimes forget!!! I vote that if u like TAP APPS TAP ZOO is a MUST HAVE!!!
Fun and addictive
By: AmCalam11 - 11-Sep-2010
Unlike other "Tap" applications, you don't have to log in daily - though it would make more sense. Depending on the animal, you can gain both experience and coins by simply visiting your zoo.However, just like the "Tap" range, it's hard to get by without purchasing (with real money) the currency used. Or, alternatively, you can spend hours downloading and reviewing other apps.The animals are very cute, it's another great application. If you like this, I also suggest the other free apps, "Tap Fish", "Tap Birds", "Tap Resort", "Tap Store", and other Tap productions I don't know about. Go ahead! What have you got to lose? It's free!

Get it it's f...uckin awesome
By: Love joy peace out9909 - Oct 10, 2010
This app is sooo awesome! And it's FREE!!!! it's sooo easy to make lots of money and buy new animals! There are a bunch of options,and fun things to do. I can play this for hours and hours,I only stop when my iPod runs out of power! Plus I love animals and this is one of those games that you have to play every day,or it just won't be fun. I would recommend this game to anyone! I give it five stars!!!

This is the coolest game ever!!! Love all the cool decorations and cross breeding stuff!!!
Buyer beware - it ain't free
By: StuShine - 23-Sep-2010
I've had Tap Zoo for a few weeks now, and found it's almost impossible to progress beyond a certain point without purchasing stars - therefore it's NOT a free game!! Initially, most things can be bought with coins and these are easy enough to get, or a modest number of stars, but increasingly you will find that some things can only be obtained with stars, and lots of them. There are only 2 ways of doing this. Buy them direct or download paid apps. Therefore, I am drawn to the conclusion that this is a great money-making scheme for the developers, especially when children download chests of stars for £150 on daddy's iPhone!!
Stars stars stars
By: Heyeverybody,thisgamerox - Sep 23, 2010
I love this zoo app, but stars need to be earned or traded in for coins, not bought. That's one of the problems I have with it, and the second problem is that I accidently bought a 2nd sea turtle for 4 stars when I was saving up for a great white. I'd like it if after I press an animal to buy, it asks "are you sure you want to buy this?" so that way I don't buy something I already have accidently. Still great though!
By: DannyDuhBeast - Oct 10, 2010
In the beginning you have a rough time but after level like 5 it's one of the most enjoyable games ever this is an awesome app and will play for along time.oh and some things you should fix first everything is worth too many stars and way more free apps should be on the get coins and stars there should be an increase of stars though instead when you download a free app instead of getting 2 stars we should get atleast 9-10 and should go higher as we get more levels other than that it's a perfect game...

Love it. Awesome app.
By: RobGutz - Oct 7, 2010
This game is great!!!I find myself waiting to see what can I do next an how well is my zoo doing. Graphics are great. Te only problem j have, which someone has already mentioned, is the inability to get stars without having to purchase or download other apps. Specially when a lot of the animals and other things you want to put in your zoo, you can only get with stars. Unless the game is changed so that you can buy with either stars or $. In my book it is the only turn off. And apparently other people's too.
By: faskine - Oct 7, 2010
I love this game & so does my 2 1/2 yr old daughter. The irritating parts is getting more stars it's so hard & a long process with the downloading & opening of the app just to get 1 star. How about getting stars for having an A+ grade everyday along with the new day zoo coins bonus.What's up with the neighbor link if the only neighbor is the creator of the game. If we could have interactive play with friends it would be just like the Facebook zoo game. Give away animals or jobs/achievements that earn stars or coins or both.Now that would be an awsome & more addictive game for sure....
Awesome game with just a few downsides
By: Kepesk - Oct 7, 2010
Super great game! Just a couple areas that need improvements:1. It gets super boring at higher levels because it takes so long for anything to happen. At the very least, more short-period high-level animals needed.2. Way too much of the game is locked out to those who don't buy hundreds of expensive stars. The game is fun without them, but you always feel like you're playing half a game.3. Decorations are crazy expensive, but don't to anything. Maybe make them part of the game mechanics? Like adding a decorations section to your zoo's grade.With all that said, I'm still playing so it must be fun!
By: Chel_say - Sep 23, 2010
It's cool the app is free and all but don't make us pay a fortune for stars. If this game were $5 I would buy it! Just make it more difficult to get stars instead of charging us for them. It's pretty sneaky.Other than that this game is awesome! Very fun way to pass the time at work. I really wish there was a way to link Zoos together with friends or something fun like that. I just don't want all of those lame updates on my facebook.Keep up the good work and please do something about the star situation! :)
Addictive but great fun
By: Benb2k - 08-Oct-2010
Once you get past the beginning when its abit slow getting enough money to expand your zoo it becomes enjoyable yet addictive. My only issues would be that moving new items onto my zoo can be tricky as it doesnt seem to be that responsive when dragging over. Also when picking up litter i can tap the screen 4/5 times before its picked up. What would make this great would be the ability to visit friends zoos and options to trade or leave gifts, oh and to be able to hire someone to pick the litter up for me!! All in all good little game.
Not too much time consuming
By: Qua Nhi - Sep 13, 2010
One of the reason why i dont really like games is that most of them are very much time-consuming. I got really frustrated at how i had to spend hours looking at games. And right when i can "collect" stuff, i had to go for an hour or two... And completely forgot about my "product". They would either die or being rotten :( ... But if youre someone like me, who's very forgetful -.- theres a high chance that you will like this game. The animals are cute. The setting is pretty cool. However, i wish there could have been a way to feed them once in a while maybe...? But yeah... Overall it's great!
