Initial Blurb:
Welcome to Overgrowth. It's hard to believe, but a community used to live at the heart of this jungle before it got angry with them and, you know, 'over grew'. People who had lived here for millennia were forced to leave their home, and live down the road a bit.

The plants here are pretty judgemental, for vegetation, but might respond positively if you care for the people and restore balance to the area. When we arrived we found incomprehensible word and number sequences written into the bark of some of the trees. Try as we may, we just couldn't make any sense of "Cure 10 Patients", you should probably take a look. Good luck, and remember, the trees are watching!


New Game Concepts:
Dynamic Building
In this level, you are not confined to a building. You are free to build any room of any size however you'd like without the constraint of a hospital building, so long as it is within the larger boundary zone.

Pick Your Own Goals
(Kind of) - There are a total of 33 plots or so in this level in a hodge-podge layout. To unlock each plot, rather than the traditional buying it, you have to select the plot and activate its goal. Achieving the goal unlocks the plot without having to pay any money. You can have up to three goals going at any time. Some only start when you unlock it (Train 15 staff members), while others count from when the game has started (Build 2 Cafe or Build 7 GP's Office). This allows you to tailor the game a bit to how you like it, however, the goals start easy and get harder as you get further into the level. You do not need to unlock all the plots, just the majority, to get three stars.

Winning 3-Star Layout

In this level, well, you really have free range of how to build your hospital. It's really just a giant area sub-divided into smaller plots. This is the bottom half of the map.

And the top half of the map.

A closer look at the chaos. You'll see I instinctively cluster GPs' Offices, block like diagnosis rooms, and try to keep administrative areas further away.








Level Notes

  • By far the best level in the DLC, in my opinion. Very fun, a lot of attention to artwork, and the challenge of unlocking plots rather than buying them is a fun break from the monotony of awkwardly shaped hospital buildings. However, at first, you still have very awkwardly-sized plots to deal with, but it becomes much easier as you expand and get more plots. I never found the level to be impossible or nerve-wracking.
  • You have to manually start each challenge you want to attempt, and can only select up to 3 at a time. While the game does keep track of how many doctors you've hired, and certain kinds of rooms you built, it's on you to select goals. It's very possible you can unlock a goal as soon as you click on it if you've already met the criteria.
  • The level's signature room, the Escape Room, is pretty cool. Enjoy a deep breather on this level, because man, the next one, Topless Mountain, will be a huge pain, and it will definitely take you a long time clear it!
