Editorial Reviews:

Travel to a remarkable new world and treat your brain to an outlandishly fun and challenging adventure. Diabolical Bloats have seized Zoombini Isle, and it will take a clever mind to help the Zoombinis navigate their way to safety. Standing between you and your destination are twelve perilous puzzles, with four levels of difficulty each. But beware, this is no ordinary challenge. Zoombinis' captivating gameplay features math without numbers. Solving Zoombinis puzzles uses the process of mathematical thinking. This process includes organizing information, reasoning with evidence, and testing systematically. Dive into the exciting and wacky world of the Zoombinis and develop information-age logic skills used in writing computer programs, organizing spreadsheet data, and searching for information on computer networks.

Summary: 8 yr old loves i
Comment: My 8-year-old daughter loves this. And I like it, too, because it is teaching her some logical reasoning in an entertaining setting.

I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because of two small flaws:
- you can't stop the game and save it at each level, you have
to get through a few. This makes it harder to have her stop
when it is time to go to bed / go to school / etc. For the parent's
sake, please make games easy to save at any point.
- getting all the zombini's forward is a bit repetitive. On the plus
side, though, this does make sure she really learns the lessons and
becomes adept at solving the logical puzzles.

Nice game!

Summary: I will give it zero if possible.
Comment: This is the worst software I've ever used. Unfortunately, I bought it for my children. It claims compatible to Windows XP, but it doesn't say it wasn't developed for XP. Basically, the software is not stable, it keeps giving error such as
"Zoombinis Logical Journey.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

It only supports low resolution (640 x 480) monitor. So if you have big, high resolution monitor, it shows a few inches little square on your big monitor.

It doesn't have technical support on the phone, only through a website, you need to login and type in all kind of issues yourself. Then you need to wait technical support to reply your trouble ticket.

I am an IT professional, but I can't "support" this software for my children, with the company's technical support.

The software just crashed AGAIN a moment ago.

Summary: New MacOS installation software in 2005 version
Comment: My five year old grandson and I have had a wonderful time playing with this game. We learned a lot about logic, and we learned that we have different learning styles.

The 2005 version which I got from Amazon (see separate listing) has a Mac OS X installer which installed this game flawlessly in less than a minute. I have no experience with the 2001 version.

Summary: What a disappointed product!
Comment: I wish I have read these 1 star comments before I purchase this CD. I received 2001 version (have they ever updated?). It doesn't work on my 2004 (XP) computer. After installing, I click "play", it ruined my computer setting and disappeared. I tried to uninstall and install again, nothing changes. I have to return the CD. It is really disappointed experience.

Summary: Very fun for any age
Comment: My ten year old has been playing this game since he was 5. He loves it. We even bought a new copy when our old one broke. I even play by myself sometimes, the puzzles are that fun. The only reason I don't give it 5 stars is that it would have been helpful to have hints for the last level of puzzles. We can't quite get a full set of zoombinis through on those last levels. Other than that, it's a lot of fun.
