World of Zoo simulates a zoo experience where you can have a first person view interacting with animals safely.

There are 11 major families of animals, and a small editor can allow a person to mix and match parts to create real or imagined species of animals.

The goal of the game is to make the animals happy through constant direct interaction.

There is a large list of achievements ranging from cleaning up poo to building something new. The achievements allow for unlocks in game to provide the user with more options such as new animal parts, and new premade animals.

The experience is cosmetically different between the Wii and PC versions. The PC version is split into two UPCs, each containing half of the animals that are present in the Wii game. Functionally, the Wii and PC game are different as the Wii game utilizes the Wii Remote, and the PC uses a mouse.

There is a DS version, developed by 1st Playable Productions, LLC that uses the DS's touch screen functionality. This version is divergent from the Wii and PC versions with the use of different environments, play scenarios, and having NPCs. [source:mobygames]
