Zoo Empire (simplified Chinese: 动物园帝国Template:; traditional Chinese: 動物園帝國Template:; pinyin: Dòng Wù Yuán Dì Guó) is a 3D interactive construction and management simulation, much like Zoo Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon 2. The player must successfully create and manage a zoo that gathers sufficient profits. As the player moves through the game, he will acquire objects that can improve game play. The object of the game is to create a "zoo empire". Zoo Empire has a platinum edition, Marine Park Empire, which added aquariums and marine animals, but also includes the other animals.
Most of the animals have at least one other animal with the same mesh (model). For example, besides the texture, all three rhinoceroses (even the Indian) are exactly the same, as are the crocodillians, equids, bears and cats (with the exception of the male lion). Even the unique animals, such as the mandrill, have unrealistic shapes and textures.[ ]

Marine Park Empire also introduces new marine animals, but still contains all animals from Zoo Empire. It has 60 animals, over 150 game structures, and 21 scenario scene.
