Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Hollywood Hospital is a time-management game, in the vein of Diner Dash, but with micro-games thrown into the mix. It has a somewhat adult sense of humor, with jokes about paparazzi and R-rated films that children may not have seen (The Exorcist, Braveheart, etc.). There are also jokes about Indiana Jones, Star Wars, and other films kids probably have seen, though. There is one mini-game that involves slapping a woman across the face because she's posessed by a demon. Our review is based on the iPhone app; the Android app may have some differences in functionality.
Is it any good?
HOLLYWOOD HOSPITAL works pretty well as a time management game, with the same kind of furiously-paced strategizing that you'll find in games like Diner Dash and Sally's Spa. The addition of micro-game "medical procedures" for each movie-themed patient adds an extra level of challenge, but those micro-games aren't really all that exciting on their own. Fans of time management games may like the change of pace introduced by Hollywood Hospital, but newcomers to the genre may want to stick with something more straightforward.
