    no, my girlfriend played the pc version of this quite some time ago and I can tell you that it's NOT a theme hospital clone.
    It's just as tiny says: diner dash with a hospital skin...
    diner dash = boring
    diner dash with hospitals = still boring
    theme hospital = åzum lulz (great that is)

    Thankfully I have a family member who can't get enough Diner Dash clones, so this is good good soup.

    I played the PC version and it's not a theme hospital clone.

    There are tons of these diner dash clones under "time management game" category from Big Fish games.

    The gameplay's obviously the same as Diner Dash or Sally's Hair Salon. Super repetitive.

    Played the first 8 levels of it so far.

    Only annoying thing is the X-Ray machine seems to break down EVERY TIME YOU USE IT, making it, in effect, barely a machine at all.

    The art style has obviously been dumbed down since it's only 8 megs of space, so the characters look like rough River City Ransom characters. It's as if this is the hospital they bring you to if you just lost a game of Super Dodgeball.

    Yes, it's a time management game, but thankfully this year their releases have been spaced out quite a bit that those who like these kinds of games are probably desperate for something until Wedding Rush or Diner Dash Flo on the Go is released.

    Strange this game plays fine on my old R4 but the CycloDS running latest firmware can’t see the game from the SD & the Acekard 2 latest firmware gets a black screen. The big problem is my GF loves these types of games & she has an Acekard 2

    And here is a DS screenshot.

    No, it's not Dementium The Ward [​IMG] But well, it's so bad you could say it's a horror game.

    Same here. Getting black screen when loading on Acecard, however it works fine on CycloDS. Hope there is a fix out for this soon.

    I had the same problem with the black screen using Acekard 2i. I got the game to work by booting into the old DMA mode by holding X when the game loads. Hope this helps anyone with the same problem.
