  • Crash Issue? Jul 13, 2020

    By TranslatorBentz
    I love this game with a passion; it’s something I grew up with and I do love trying to figure out the puzzles, especially with the hardest difficulty that the game raises itself up to. There’s really only one issue that I’ve been running into, which are crashes. They do get a bit frustrating, especially when they happen as soon as you finish a puzzle, but don’t hit the proceed button in time; making you need to redo the entire level. The crashes are pretty frequent as well, sometimes not even letting the app open several times.

  • Teacher Recommended!!! Jul 3, 2018

    On a hunch, I did a search in the App Store for the Zoombinis and was stunned to see that it was there in its original form. I just couldn’t wait to play! This is my favorite piece of software ever! As a teacher, I use to play with my third graders and I played it at home as did my friends. The kids utterly loved the adorable blue creatures on their escapades to reach the home of the Zoombinis. They literally begged to play and I acquiesced. The logic skills they picked up! If I had to pick one piece of software for primary school students, I’d select the Zoombinis. In the beginning, each Zoombini receives cute little attributes for their hair, eyes, noses, and feet which they are most often grouped by in the endearing puzzles. I’m at the beginning level right now and I’m running into problems with the Tatooted Toads. I’m just going to have to keep it at it. Also something as minor as how do I move the lever to get the cart to go in at junction in Mirror Machine? As a teacher and as a former kid, I give the Zoombinis the highest recommendation possible. It is true to the 1980‘s form of the game with authentic music, graphics and gameplay. I want to see MORE of the Zoombini games, please!! As it is, I will recommend it to every kid, parent and grandparent I come across. I think I’ll do that right now!

  • I got an iPad to play this game Jan 23, 2019

    By mishmell17
    Zoombinis was our family’s favorite game to play when I was a kid! My sister and I would argue over who got play on the computer first. When I heard they recreated the game into an app I was ECSTATIC! I looked up the app and saw the pictures. Everything is almost identical to the PC version. I begged my husband for an iPad for Christmas just to play this game and it has not disappointed. The nostalgia is overwhelming lol. It took me back to 8 year old me. I immediately started quoting the pizza trolls and the narrator; I was even shocked I remembered it all. I love that they used the same voices for the characters. I really REALLY hope that they recreate more of the Zoombini games!! This game is worth buying an iPad to play! The only thing I did not like is the much much lower number of Zoombinis to get to Zoombiniville. The app has 400 while I remember the computer game having over 1000.

    A faithful remaster of a piece of my childhood. Spent hours playing as a kid and still enjoy the logical puzzles as an adult, on the harder modes some levels are still very challenging. Slight hiccups here and there but nothing disruptive and certainly worth it for the updated visuals

    I have paid for this game and for some reason it will not download on my phone. & When logged into my same account on mt tablet it is asking me to pay 2.99 again, to download it there. So far, it does not work at all. Would rate this much better, i'm sure if it actually would download.

    I purchased this game and it's just like the original I played as a kid. Unfortunately, after my phone updated the app refused to launch no matter what I tried. It still doesn't work and that's a bit frustrating.

    I totally love this game and am in a race with my adult children to see who can be the first to save all the Zoombinis. So you can imagine my huge disappointment when the game froze. It will let me start a new game, but why would I want to do that when I already have about 150 Zoombinis saved and many others at the campsites. What a let down!

    I'm on the Google pixel 4, and the game will not get past the loading screen. Even on my previous phone, this game was kind of buggy. For instance, the treehouse game would sometimes board everything up and all the zoombinis would just stare directly at me. Overall good game, and I'd recommend it if it works on your phone.

  • Challenging for adults too Oct 12, 2018

    By anonymoose858
    There is no way a 10 year old can solve the very very hard level puzzles. I am 32 years old with a physics degree and it takes every ounce of thinking power in my noggin to get all 16 homies to Zoombiniville. 10 year old me would not have the patience and discipline to solve these puzzles. He would have gave up and started playing Pokémon Blue on his game boy once he reached the very hard level (which is exactly what I did back then). I’m glad that 22 years later, I’m finally able to beat this game. I highly recommend this game. It is in my hall of fame along with Oregan Trail and Where In The World Is Carmen San Diego

  • Awesome, but lose 1 zoombini... Dec 27, 2017

    By anelotas
    It is great to play a game I used to play as a child again! It's still fun! After level 2, I always lose one zoombini at the stage with flog. 16 zoombinis succeeded to ride the boat, but only 15 zoombinis appears in the next stage. The experience will be much much better without this bug. Please fix it!!

  • The game I love and remember--but buggy. Nov 29, 2015

    By mikkaybear
    (Logical Journey of the) Zoombinis has always been the ultimate logic game. As a child, I loved playing certain challenges over and over, especially Mudball Wall. As an adult, I've got more strategy: intentionally losing Zoombinis so I don't advance through the levels, whisking these quirky, endearing blue creatures through to Zoombiniville on easy until I get too bored and need more of a challenge. No matter your age level, no matter your strategy, this game has something to offer everyone--and it's fun! I've logged probably 7 or 8 hours playing this version so far, and I've noticed a couple of bugs. 1. On the "Mirror Machine" challenge: sometimes have a hard time picking up Zoombinis on the top row. I've had to abandon them there because the game just wouldn't pick them up. 2. With the "Fleens!" challenge on Oh So Hard: the game glitches out completely. If a Zoombini falls off the branch (only four can fit?), there is no option to move the rest of the party on. I have to exit to the map. This issue is not replicated in Practice Mode on the same level. 3. In "Pizza Pass" on Oh So Hard: sometimes the wrong audio plays. It's the third troll's voice, but the third troll isn't there. Just a minor glitch. In spite of the bugs--which will hopefully be resolved!--this game is well worth the price. Educational, entertaining, and just plain addictive. Hip hip Zoombini!

    I love this game, it's exactly the computer game I played as a kid. It's a great remake for my phone. My only complaint is that there are very few instructions about which buttons to press and what the symbols mean and because of that I've lost a lot of zoombinis lol. I also can't figure out how to change the difficulty? Interacting with the map is confusing and annoying because there was no tutorial like at all

    The game is very enjoyable, why only 4 star you ask? Because it only lets you play one level once then if you wish "practice" mode you can do that one level again but no others!

    There are some animation glitches, but that's ignorable. I am however frustrated that I don't seem to be able to swap the lily pads when doing the frog crossing puzzle. It works okay-ish during the practice, but during the actual journey itself it doesn't seem to work.

  • Classic game, good remake, but a lot of rough edges. Nov 2, 2018

    By dwx1618
    I absolutely adored this game growing up, and spent many, many hours playing it as a kid. It was incredibly exciting when I heard TERC was going to update it and bring it to the App Store. They’ve done a good job bringing the game back—the game is even better with touch, the narrator and Arno are just as you remember them, the graphics are all pretty, the campsite easter eggs are there too! However, there are a lot of small things which make it hard to stay immersed. Some of the animations are choppy, the puzzle instructions are useless, the Zoombinis no longer make sounds when they walk, stuff like that. Recommended in the end, but would love to see more polish.

  • Same, but.... Feb 3, 2019

    By Tlight01
    Same game I played many years ago. Same characters, funny quotes, and narration. My only complaint is you can reuse the same type of Zoombinis over and over so long as the group of 16 has no duplicates. This is a departure from the old version and to me this seems like a flaw since you can keep creating parties of nearly identical Zoombinis and flying through the puzzles. The idea behind the old version was you had to save every Zoombini (one of every unique combination). At first you could make nearly identical parties but eventually this would dry up and you had to start taking more diverse and challenging groups. Hopefully the devs can bring this element back to this version because without it, the game is lacking and can become repetitive.

  • Just like childhood! ...with glitches included... Sep 19, 2017

    By SortAaaa
    I love this game, and I was pee-my-pants excited when I found the app; however, there are so many bugs in the higher levels that it makes it almost impossible to play through. It's so great up until that point. I just want a fix so I can continue to play and love this smart little game!

  • Very Very hard mirror machine glitches Apr 17, 2017

    By JJ Lute
    Flashing Zoombini parts don't always change to match the part on the other zoombini. Flashing zoombini parts sometimes change to something that doesn't match the zoombini on the other side of the big crystal.

  • Unsolvable puzzles, no logic, changing rules Mar 5, 2018

    By Arem1771
    This game is a sad remake. It doesn’t even follow its own logic, it makes unsolvable puzzles on occasion and even changed the rules of the puzzles half way through! Don’t waste your money on this. Very disappointing. I was a fan of the original, and you broke it. Shame on you.
