Video: Theme Hospital for Nokia N900 Maemo 5 with CorsixTH! (Beta2) Ah, Beautiful memories!

| March 26, 2010 | 13 Replies

I’m probably showing my age now, but I loved Theme Hospital as a kid! (Though I think I got into it quite late as I owned a platinum disk version).

Hospital management, building clinics, dealing with patients and staff, and of course that soothing 80s elevator music. Haha.

You might have seen the first videos of N900 playing Theme Hospital Back  in December.

Now, a Beta 2 version has surfaced with quite a few improvements.

update: WE’RE STILL WAITING FOR THE PORT TO N900. This is not played on N900 yet but maybe what we’ll get when it is finally ported for N900. (kudos waleyboy)

“After three months of development since the previous release, we are proud to present CorsixTH beta 2. The aim of this release is to give a report of our progress and attract more players and (hopefully) contributors to the project. Since beta 1, a great number of new features and improvements were implemented. Generally, playability has been vastly improved by implementing more elements of the original game that were still missing in the previous release.”

As computers evolve, we risk losing some classic games. Bullfrog’s Theme Hospital, published in 1997, is a classic simulation game, but getting it to run natively on modern operating systems is getting progressively harder.


This project aims to reimplement the game engine of Theme Hospital, and be able to load the original game data files. This means that you will need a purchased copy of Theme Hospital, or a copy of the demo, in order to use CorsixTH. After most of the original engine has been reimplemented in open source code, the project will serve as a base from which extensions and improvements to the original game can be made.

    I’m pretty sure that’s not the N900 version in the video, but the desktop linux version, hence the mouse cursor flying around.

    Very good website you have here but I was curious if
    you knew of any discussion boards that cover
    the same topics discussed here? I’d really like to be a part of online community where I can get responses from other knowledgeable people that share the same interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know. Kudos!

    • I also have yet to read about touching the tip of the tongue to
      the pallet in EFT. They are derived from the Tibetan lama chanting
      practice, whereby one may attain enlightenment.

    • Ultimate Ninja Heroes 3 also features a new four-player battle system that can definitely be fun and
      over 50 unlockable characters as well as tons of other
      cool bonuses. EFT and Kuji Kiri both tap into DNA
      ability to be programmed as it relates to the flow of Chi (life force).
      To do this, set up different stations with a specific workout at each station.

    Is information currently available electronically in the system being
    reproduced by hand on paperwork. That’s just simple
    stuff, but that makes a big difference. good top end, a quick shifting
    gear box, great handling and just plain fun, but this car can sure
    be a handful.
