Want to play the world’s healthiest game for mobile? Amateur Surgeon 4 and Remedy Rush were quirky titles alright, but so is My Hospital, according to its makers, Cherrypick Games. This mobile game gives you the opportunity to create elixirs, farm and harvest medical plants, and create cures for your patients as you try to cure their illnesses. While managing your hospital, you can build new offices for your doctors, diagnostic rooms, laboratories, and treatment centers, as well as upgrading the ones you already have. And since this game isn’t one to take itself seriously, Cherrypick calls the diseases you can cure “quirky” and “funny” – how about patients with slimey lungs, chili throat, frozen hands, and other peculiar ailments?
Running a hospital and finding and creating cures isn’t a laughing matter if you don’t know what to do, and there are many things to keep in mind when playing the game. But there are ways to make it easier, and several tips you can follow if you aren’t quite sure what to do in the game and how to run your hospital properly. So join us as we present to you our exclusive My Hospital strategy guide, which features a list of tips and hints that cover all of the important facets of this new hospital management simulator.
1. Upgrade Everything
The game’s tutorial will get you started on the right foot, but it won’t tell you everything you need to know. One example would be the Panacea Collector, which you should be upgrading ASAP. You’ll need to have enough coins in order to do this, but if you have enough on you, make it a point to upgrade it regularly. That’s going to increase its maximum capacity, as well as its capability to churn out Panacea on an hourly basis.
Aside from the Panacea Collector, you should also be looking to upgrade your Storage and your Tank, but instead of common coins, you’ll need premium stuff to upgrade those two. These premium items are normally available via item drop, but you can also wait it out and see if the Pharmacy will carry them at some point in the game. If you’re trying to save up on coins, it’s worth it to save up so you can buy premium stuff for upgrades.
2. Keep Busy When Researching For Cures
As a word of warning, it can be quite the challenge to get new medicine. The game has a crafting mechanic in here which you will use to create your cures, and at first, it won’t be too difficult, with only a few select items to work with. But as you progress and make your way further through My Hospital, you’ll have tons of stuff to work with and it could, and will get overwhelming. So how can you ensure yourself of maximum productivity when researching for cures?
We would recommend producing the ingredients that take the shortest time to create while you’re actively playing the game, and set up ingredients that take longer if you know you’re going to be away from the game for a while. The machines in your lab need to be working constantly, and if you don’t have anything to do at the moment, specifically tasks you need to complete for the daily missions, you’re better off producing medicines that offer the most lucrative rewards. That’s something you should be focusing on instead of curing everyone at that point in My Hospital; you will reach a time when it will be impossible to attend to all your patients’ needs.
3. Look For The Hidden Treasure Chest
It’s always best to play the game as often as possible, but if you do miss some time and stay away from My Hospital for a while, you may be able to find a treasure chest hidden somewhere in your hospital. If you find such a chest, you will be rewarded with lots of free stuff inside, all of which could help you in progressing faster and keeping your hospital up to speed.
4. Don’t Focus On Decorations Too Much
It sounds like a tempting idea – you may be interested in decorating your hospital, spiffing it up, and giving it your own personal touch. But let’s face it – those decorations are only there for aesthetic purposes, and do not contribute anything in terms of gameplay. When spending your coins, invest in new rooms, new lab equipment, new upgrade items, and other things that can help you progress further. Save the decorations for a time when you’ve got a lot of money to burn, and when your hospital is fairly advanced.
5. Build New Facilities, Etc. Once They’re Unlocked
Leveling up in the game will unlock new facilities for your hospital, or new stuff for your lab. You may even get to enjoy some new features once you reach certain levels. But regardless of what you’re able to unlock, we would recommend that you work on those things immediately due to the long waiting times. Again, it’s a good idea to set these up before you log out of the game for an extended period of time, such as when you’re about to sleep.
6. How To Get More Free Stuff
You can earn yourself a host of free items in My Hospital, and we’re going to show you what you need to do to unlock them. For starters, you can watch advertisement videos to get some of these freebies. You can also redeem items as they become available – usually, these are timed rewards that are unlocked at a specific time. And you can play mini-games and win prizes for doing well in them. Regardless of how you’re trying to get free stuff, you should always be working to get more of those items, and redeem your rewards ASAP.
7. Play The Mini-Games Right
The mini-games in My Hospital are just as they are in most other games – they may seem inconsequential compared to the main game, but you should also be taking them seriously, as they can earn you some free stuff, as mentioned above. One strategy when playing mini-games is not to pay any coins for a new draw for rewards. The only time you should pay coins is if you win 200 coins, which is essentially akin to getting a free draw, should you choose to do so. So if you do win that 200 coins, you may get a completely new item, plus some leftover money after spending for the new draw.
8. Make The Most Out Of Your Space
The thing with management simulator games is that they often restrict the amount of real estate you have to work with. In My Hospital, your hospital only has so much space, and with that in mind, it’s important to manage the finer details and optimize that space given to you. For example, it might take some strategy to micromanage your lab space, as it could fill up real quick. Place your equipment close to each other, or find other ways to get the most out of what you’re allowed to work with.
You have the option to buy expansions so that you have more space to work with, but the thing with these is that they get progressively more expensive. Still, it’s better to buy expansions if you can afford them, and going back to what we told you a few tips ago, don’t spend on the decorations. Not only would you be buying stuff that only offers aesthetic benefits, you would also be wasting space that could otherwise be used on equipment.
9. Play The Game With Friends
My Hospital is a game that can be played solo, but there are advantages to connecting your game to Facebook and adding some friends. The primary benefit would be heading to their hospitals and buying items from their pharmacies, and while it may be fun to also compare your progress to theirs, it’s the in-game benefits that you should be looking forward to when adding friends to the game.
