I like it buttt
I really do like this game but it needs some major improvements . Earning money is hard and when you do get good money you’re having to spend it on something like to get another employee is $60,000 and it could be a nurse or a pharmacy . You don’t get to choose . It cost $8,000 to get 10 of the training skills which sounds great right ? I thought that meant you can improve 10 of your employees skills. Nope . You only use them on one and then you Realize that you actually have to pay $6,000+ on top of that to upgrade them with the 10 training skills that you thought could be used for 10 separate people . So really $68,00 or more to up the skills of ONE employee . I won’t buy skills anymore. I wait till I get rewards . Oh and upgrading your rooms ! That’s just a rip off . You can only put one employee in a room at a time unless you upgrade . So you spend $50,000 to upgrade your room but the only thing that does is change the time it takes by ONE SECOND! If you want 2 people in a room you have to upgrade AGAIN for $100,000 . And it took 12hrs to upgrade the room the first time, so you can’t use the only break room you have for 12 HOURS! Eventually your people will have no energy what so ever unless you spend 120 hearts to rush the upgrade . Which you have to buy thoSe with REAL money . So I’m sure if you update again it’s another 12 hours you have to wait to use it 😡
When I first started out, I was really excited. I played the small Operate Now games on the computer before I found this game. I loved them. You could choose different types of operations to do. So I thought that this game would have an abundance of operations. It was a bit of a let down though. At first I thought I just had to keep playing and leveling up, it made sense for that to be the case. After a few weeks I realized that wasn’t the case. There is a small variety of operations.
That’s not what really gets on my nerves though. It is really hard to get money, UNLESS you update the rooms(which takes a lot of money!) or to pay for it with hearts(which takes real money!). Not to mention it takes 12 hours for a room to update! And you can’t use that room while it’s updating, leaving you in a bad spot if you have a time limited event.
One thing that needs to be updated is the card packets to get new workers. It cost 60,000 dollars in the game(and if you remember it’s hard to earn that) and then there’s a big possibility that you’ll get a duplicate card. There shouldn’t be duplicates. I have around 15 doctors, 10 surgeons, and 15 nurses. But I have one axillary worker and two paramedics. I need more axillary workers! But every time I get a packet, I get a doctor, surgeon, or nurse! I do not need another one of those!
Update bug problem
So apparently my game updated and now I can’t play it. Just keeps telling me I don’t have the most up to date version... first thing I believe I’ve spent enough money $100sss to at least get to play the game :/ I went through some of the reviews and saw where someone deleted and lost everything trying to fix the problem.. well I’ve spent way to much to just loose everything unless y’all want to refund all of the money that’s been spent from my account. 2nd I’m very aggravated how y’all allow the duplicates I think when we pay to get a new character that’s what we should get instead of getting cards 10times over how ridiculous. If we wanted cards we would use the training cards purchaser. If you want to keep receiving lots of money then fix this. 3rd the game and surgeries are getting repetitive. Need some new things added. It’s starting to get boring just going through the same old thing every time... once you get so far in the game there’s only so little to do.. look if you want this game to stay on the top then you need to do what it takes to keep it on the top. The game needs a lot of improvements otherwise it’s going downhill...
Some annoying glitches
I gave it a 2 because I love this game and I play it all the time. However, I sometimes come across surgeries where I lose hearts because it won’t let me click the right tool so I have to click another in order to get that one to work. Or I lose time because it won’t give me 100% on a task even though I went over that spot multiple times.
For example, I decided to write this review because of one particular surgery. I am trying to pass this one quest in the sister hospital and I am supposed to cauterize stomach ulcers. But when I go over it with the laser, it will only give me up to 67% and then won’t go up anymore. I’ve gone over my entire screen and the ares over and over again until my time ran out and it would not let me go to the next step. I have tried this surgery 3 times now and it is the same thing over and over.
I’m not sure how I’m supposed to get passed that surgery if it just keeps stopping me at the same part. I really like this game but it is beyond infuriating. I have spent actual money on this game, and for it to just stop letting me progress seems a little unfair.
Please fix this or I will be forced to stop playing because I can’t progress anymore without that surgery.
Don’t do it! You’ll regret it.
When I first downloaded the game, I used to play it all day, even at work. I even spent ACTUAL hard earned money with this game (something I NEVER do), but I’ve spent maybe $5-$10 with this game the first go around. However, when I got to a certain level in the game it said I was not on the latest version of the game and needed to update. Went to the App Store there was not an update available so the other thing I could think of is uninstalling and reinstalling. Completed the reinstall and noticed I lost EVERYTHING; which was fine because I was just starting to play anyway. So a couple weeks later and $25-$30 later and I’m extremely close to completing a higher level, it says the same exact thing about the app being out of date. This time I’m not doing the uninstall and reinstall because I’m thinking this is a way for the app developers to make more money along with the in-app purchases you’ve previously made. Today is the day I’ve decided to permanently get rid of this app from my phone and I hope others read this review and STAY AWAY FROM THIS APP!! It’s honestly just a money hunger group of people who created a game with flaws from the beginning! PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE STAY AWAY!!!!!
It’s good but could use some improvements..
I love playing this game and it is a lot of fun but, it could use a few changes. For example, when you are setting up your hospital it tells you where to put your departments and you can’t change it. I was hoping to move around some departments to make things more efficient for myself and more life like in general but you can’t move anything and I can make my hospital really bothersome to look at. Also, money is really hard to come by in the game and it takes a lot of cash to upgrade the hospital. Most importantly, it costs 60 grad to hire a new worker and you may really need a nurse but they give you a doctor instead. So you have 5 nurses trying to run 5 departments and have 5 drs running 2 departments. Also I was VERY angry when I went to purchase a new employee and they said that I had duplicated an employee and just gave me skills instead! I needed another employee not skills. All in all this game is pretty fun to play but it could make some changes to make game play even better.

I loved this game until they updated. Once they updated it kept saying on my phone that I wasn’t using the most up-to-date version of the game and wouldn’t let me open it. I had to delete the game and re-download it. When I did that even though I have it attached to my game center account it started me all over and I lost everything. I contacted the developers to see what to do before deleting the game but they did not get back to me. I will now be deleting the app forever because I refuse to do all that work all over again and all it does is infuriate me. There needs to be some way for your game to be transferred if you have to delete the app. Will never get this app again, and will think twice about getting apps from this developer. To put so much work in and effort into a game to get as far as I got only to have it erased is disgusting and pisses me off. I’m so lucky I didn’t spend any money because if I spent any money on any of their stuff for this game I definitely would have to get it refunded from Apple. Do not spend any money in this game whatsoever because if something happens you will lose your game with no back up and that money will be wasted.
I got this game originally to learn a little more about what a surgeon or doctor does. It definitely helps a little bit but it’s not the best. For example the game only lets you complete certain aspects of the tasks. I kept losing a patients hearts due to the fact that it wouldn’t let me choose the needle when I needed to stitch up the opening I cut. When it did eventually let me choose the needle I wasn’t able to actually stitch the opening which led to me losing the patient. During times when a patients airway is blocked the things you need to do in order to help them breathe is confusing. At times it goes super fast the slows down dramatically so you then end up failing that part of the operation. Overall I liked this game at first but then started to dislike it as I was no longer able to complete my surgeries due to a malfunction on their end. This game is also just a money trap. I have been asked multiple times to buy certain packs to move forward which are sometimes necessary but are way too overpriced. I have tried to move on without them but like I said before, I end up failing my surgeries. I DEFINITELY DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU BUY THIS GAME.
Overall a good game
I don’t like it that it takes so long to do upgrades especially in the break room. We are only allowed to have 3 people in at one time and some of these people have over 575 healths. Some take up to 15 minutes to completely finish. I have all the employees except for the last GOLDEN 3-4 cards and they want 4-500 gold hearts for them. They won’t let us hire more people to run our hospitals. I have a Pharmacy, 2 operating rooms, 2 exam rooms, a X-ray, ct or a mri room, 2 ambulance bays, receptionist desk, 4 recovery rooms and 1 lonely break room. That takes for ever to recharge. Then if you want to recharge your people you need hearts to but consumable items instead of using money you earned. So, if you don’t have a lot of gold hearts good luck I have spent a few hundred dollars on hearts and trust me they don’t last long at all. I have finished season 1, season 2, I’ve completed the Christmas challenge to fix the other hospital and now I’m back to square one. Nothing new just doing the same thing over and over and over again. It gets boring .
A few issues putting off a spending player.
I really like this game and have happily spent over $20 (which usually classifies you as a whale if I’m not mistaken) and lately I find myself not wanting to play. The reason is the sensitivity around the suturing. I’ll make a suture and it will throw and error and then I repeat the exact same motion and it registers it as correct. This has happened consistently enough that I wanted to touch on it here. It is actually ruining my whole experience.
Since I’m here I also wanted to mention that the balance overall seems to be a bit weird. Hard levels are not hard and then a medium level will be very finicky. I have played what seems to be the exact same level/surgery on different difficulties and noticed no difference at all. Also, people get tumors in places other than their stomach... might be nice to have different surgeries. For example, brain surgery or gallbladder... but that may be just me lol.
Tries to Steal Your Money
By Me n stuff n things
I clicked on a “buy now” button to see how much the item was, and the game went haywire! On my iPad, I have to put my fingerprint in to accept the charges after the amount the item costs pops up. I didn’t put my fingerprint in. I clicked on “cancel” and the window kept popping back up, prompting me to buy it. At one point, a window popped up stating that my transaction didn’t go through! I didn’t authorize a transaction, you thieves! Luckily, I don’t link my card to my Apple I.D., for reasons such as this.
So, no one ripped me off today. But they might accomplish that with other people. I just wanted to warn others... don’t click on anything to buy unless you absolutely intend on buying it. Also, check your bank account if you do give money to these scam artists. They’re likely the kind of people who would charge you five times for one thing, and hope you never check your account. Beware. I had to turn off my iPad to stop the pop-ups from continuing, even after I had closed the game. Very shady developers here.
Great, Fun Game
It’s a very fun game. Defiantly not a game you can play in one sitting. It requires time and dedication. Getting started may seem like a hassle, but if you do it right then you should have no problems. As far as spending money, I’ve only spend a total of 5$ and that was in the beginning. Haven’t spent a penny since. Sign in daily and you get 20 hearts. There’s also an option to watch videos for hearts. Total of 10 hearts every 5 hrs. It’s a good deal and it adds up quickly. For more income, my personal tip is to invest in the pharmacy.
My only complaint would be the amount of duplicate employees :| Along with the fact that we can’t choose the placement of the first few rooms, and much less rearrange them after. Some new surgeries would be very cool, I’m kind of getting tired of polyps, but over all it’s a super fun game.
This is the first game I open every day!
This is an excellent game that has a variety of challenges and requires several types of skills. It also has an interesting storyline mixed in. I like the feel of actually building an employee base and building their skills and the required elements of a real hospital. It is not so realistic that it’s boring but realistic enough to keep your interest. You can speed processes up by in-app purchases but they don’t force you to spend real money in order to play. They offer ads as an alternative to spending real money which I appreciate. The downside of this game is that every time you open it, it shows their “limited time offer” for game packs for sale but you get used to waiting for them (only a few seconds) and closing them before starting to play.
I do enjoy this game. Sometimes the story lines get a little messed up. It might say you’re going to fix a fractured bone, but then you go into the surgery and you’re doing a bypass. Thats not too horrible. What stinks is sometimes they have “events” where there’s extra missions to do. They last a certain amount of days and then when they’re over you’re suppose to claim your rewards that you’ve earned. Every time I’ve played a mission, and spent a ton of in game money on them mind you, when I get on the day after it ends, I don’t get to collect the rewards. Adds pop up when you start the game for whatever is on sale in their store, and that’s normally fine with me, but because they pop up, they seem to cancel out my chance to get the rewards. And that’s a real bummer because I spend so much time working my way up to get the best reward possible and I spend a ton of in game money on them.
Great concept, but in game detail is a challenge
This game is on the right track. The first impression was excellent, but after a few hours the interest is all gone. It is ridiculous how the break room only have one slot for personal. And every upgrade takes like 50k to 100k. There is no real given support in the game for it to keep the interest of the audience. I hope he developer can some How find a balance in the upgrade system. The making money part is very slow. The energy depletes out of the staffs so fast. Even with the gold staffs. To level the staff is even worse. Is tons of money and upgraded materials.
Please find a balance with in the game. Also I think the game is down right now. Keeps asking us to come to the App Store to get a upgrade. Cause of our version is too old. But there is no upgrades when the App Store opens. The game still doesn’t work. It’s been 24 hours now.
Really fun and great graphics but.....
When I found this game and played through the prologue I was hooked, not by just the game itself, but the storylines, the graphics when doing surgeries and how the background would move when a character “talked” in the story. BUT!! But but but the time that you have to wait in order to continue the storyline and to get things done takes WAAAAAAAAAYYYY to long. It’s almost as if the doc, nurse, whom ever you choose to do the task is ACTUALLY doing the task. And having to spend 60,000 to get a room upgrade or 30,000 for a room and the amount of time you have to wait for that money to accumulate is like frustrating. Yes you build your own hospital, which I am sure in reality it would cost just as much if not more and take more time, but COME ON..... this is a game not reality. I would delete the game but the graphics and storyline have hooked in too much to delete.
Please update game so it make it easier to progress the storyline and game.
Good game BUT...
Really good game, I don't mind waiting time, figured out way to earn a lot of money, but there one thing Iam concerned about.
I have started to build a new level of the building, it's been already 3 days, it is not complete, and the is no time shown until the completion....
I have selected to build a new room and it says new building level will be available in the future update. So now I don't have neither new building level nor 200k of game money.
Change rating to 4 stars, after 3 days finally got new building level. The are 2 things I would change: 1) add more surgeries between the waiting time before missions. Because after a certain point you need to visit the game only 3-4 times a day, collect money, restore energy, assign new personnel, upgrade room...
2) Staff duplicates - its like playing a Russian Roulett, spend money or gold, get same doctor, instead of him/her take token...BUT the amount of tokens is much much lower then the price we pay for the member of staff. And how many attempts do we need to make to get all the staff members?
After finishing the research, one of the nurses is stuck in the finished research. He is not available to assign to any other project and it says that he is occupied with the research...
Lots of potential, but came up a little short
Good game, but too hard to gain doctors required to continue through the game. The big gripe I have and reason I deleted the game was I would preform surgeries correctly, but keep failing for unknown reasons, and finally after completing with the same procedure again and again and again it would finally accept it and finally complete the surgery. Maybe will come back to it down the road when developer can really sit down work out the kinks in the game and improve game play. Also would have to perform surgeries when no tutorial was given, so no way to continue other than taking penalties and waiting for your nurse to give you clues which shouldn’t be the case for a surgeon and hope your patient doesn’t crash. Very annoying when it’s your only way to continue in the game. The surgery bits are quite fun when it works correctly and extremely annoying when it doesn’t.
This game is just alright! The game itself can be fun at times. It just takes way too long for things to get done. You don’t make a lot of coins in the game and when you do, you have to spend 7 Times that amount to get anything done! Energy runs out far too quickly. The currency in the game just isn’t good at all and almost ruins the game experience. There are some things that happen within the game that are confusing as well. Upgrading rooms and expanding are also way too expensive. They want you to spend about 60,000 coins just to hire a single person! And that person might not even be good or what you need! At least let us choose. And it takes seriously so long to even get that many coins. Not to mention having to buy things that energize them.
All in all, there are more negatives than positives in this game.
Good game just a few issues UPDATE
I've never reviewed an app before, but this is one of the only games I really like and consistently play. 40+ days in a row. I also have problems occasionally getting the game to load, but not to often. I just wish the surgeries were a little harder and that there was more variety. I also can't stand that I keep getting duplicate characters and all I'll get is like 50 training cards. So I spent 60,000 to get 8,000 worth of cards? Not fair! Also got duplicates twice when using my hearts, and I haven't spent money in the game so I've been saving them up. So using 120 hearts to get like 150 training cards! What a waste! But I still love it, it's a good game
UPDATE: I only have 57 staff members. Used 480 gold hearts to buy more and all 4 were duplicates!! It's taken me a long time to save those hearts, could at least give me a NEW staff member!!
Having a problem with the Operation Now: Hospital Anniversary Storm
EDIT: I’m finding out that this glitch is occurring in every operation that has to to with the removal of the 3 stomach tumors. I’m hoping that the fix it before the end of the event or I’m deleting this game. Ive spent a fair amount of money on it and will refuse to if this continues every time they do an event.
I’ve been playing Operation Now: Hospital for quite some time and like the game but am having a problem with one of the Anniversary Storm activities. It has to do with removing the stomach tumors of Mr. Wallace. It doesn’t let me complete the activity so I end up failing the operation. I had a similar problem during the last special event with the sister hospital where everything was fine but there was 1 operation that was practically impossible to complete.
Not sure if the developers will see this or pay attention since trying to contact them from the game is as hard as the problem I’m having.
What happened to fame you could play and not have to dish out $$$ just to play at a basic level. I am so tired of these developers being so money hungry!!! Totally get making money for your work but ripping people off by making upgrades, getting new employees, training staff, etc but this is ridiculous! On top of that several other people have said once they got to a certain level they had to uninstall and reinstall only to lose everything and start over AFTER spending money on this game. It IS a fun game but I wouldn’t even encourage you to set yourself up by getting it and having to spend money...too much money both real life and in the game purchases using game earned money. Apple should really set boundaries with developers to keep them from milking or trying to milk people with unrealistic expectations in these games when it’s OBVIOUS they are ripping people off.
Please fix this app!
UPDATE since my last post a couple months ago. I have this app another try because of the upgrade. Now I have lost over 350 golden hearts and $5,500,000. I have been working on upgrades and today it told me I didn’t have enough$$. Done wasting my time with this app. Do yourself a favor don’t bother downloading this app. If I could give less than a one I would!! 😡
2 months ago - approximately. This is not the first time I have lost money and hearts, but now I lost at least $1,400,000 and over 200 golden hearts. I am not sure of the stamina like others have posted because I went to upgrade a room and didn't have the $$ to do so and didn't check anything else. I have enjoyed this game but between the multiple glitches, freezes and lost $. I may be done with this game and will make sure my friends find something else to play. Extremely unhappy with the freezing and loss of $$ and hearts.
I really like it but it has some flaws
I've been playing this game for a while and it's really fun, but its way too hard to earn money and when you buy medical resources or training packs you can't specify which one you want. I know the reason for that is to not make the game too easy, but I think if you could buy the one you need (like in real life, when you go to a store to buy cereal you dont spin a wheel and hope for cheerios) it would make it more realistic and fun. Also, on one of the "Gaping Wound" surgeries it always glitches when I try to stitch the person's leg back up and eventually I fail the surgery just trying to so what you're supposed to do which is pretty frustrating. Although, overall I'd suggest the app.
