DUBLIN: If you want to revisit your college days without the fear of failing exams, then you might want to take a look at “Two Point Campus”, a game that lets you run the institution rather than just attend it.

This management game follows in the footsteps of its predecessor “Two Point Hospital.” Instead of the well-being of patients, the focus here is on the academic success of the students.

And there’s a lot to do to make that happen, including building the campus and organising the curricula and staff. How the campus will look is up to the player. Lecture halls, libraries, and dormitories need to be built.

Even the smallest details are of great importance because in the end, every decoration can enhance the university’s reputation.

Management games can often be dull, so this one adds plenty of humour. Players can offer courses in Scientology, sorcery and even in becoming a knight. Then there’s the school sport, a crazy game called Cheeseball.

But no matter how strange the curriculum, measurable goals have to be achieved by your students for you to succeed.

True, the game won’t always come that close to real, everyday university life, but those who enjoyed “Cities: Skylines,” “The Sims” or “Prison Architect” will have a lot of fun with the unconventional nature of “Two Point Campus.”

The game is available for PCs, PlayStations, the Xbox, and the Nintendo Switch and costs around €40/$40 (RM159 in Malaysia). – dpa
