OverviewOverview

Two Point Hospital is a light-hearted healthcare simulator. You take charge of a hospital, similar to Theme Hospital, where you must construct and maintain wards, machines and staff.

Build amenities to meet the needs of patients and staff, expand into new plots, hire and manage doctors, nurses, janitors, and assistants to maintain the hospital.

It all sounds a little serious, but the comedic interpretation of diseases keeps the play light-hearted. "Light-Headedness" patients have a light bulb for a head. "Pandemic" sufferers have a pan on their heads. "Mock Star" patients are Freddie Mercury impersonators. "Animal Magnetism" disease is having animals stuck to the patient's body.

Still, you have to carefully consider the running of your hospital. The flow of patients from a GP's Office to diagnosis rooms, and eventually treatment can cause blockages in provision.

There are influxes of patients with specific diseases that need to be provided for. Later there are epidemics which can spread through the hospital. You can develop vaccines to inoculate patients, and there is a reward if all infected patients are immunised.

Age RatingsAge Ratings

Rated PEGI 3 for very mild slapstick violence. When patients die, they turn into ghosts but they are not scary in any way.

ESRB EVERYONE 10+ Animated Blood and Crude Humour. Lack of treatment or proper facilities can sometimes cause patients to urinate, defecate, and/or throw up on the ground; the resultant waste will remain until a janitor cleans it up. Several sequences depict patients using toilets, accompanied by flatulence and flushing sounds. In one sequence, players can shoot at tiny worm-like creatures that "splat" when shot, leaving yellow, blood-like stains on the ground.
