I love Zookeeper DX

The issue with the iPhone display is now fixed! Game play is excellent, and I'm sincerely enjoying this game on my two favorite Apple devices (iPhone & iPad). The only thing that would make me any happier would be the Time Attack mode of game play!

Have seriously loved this game since it was on Nintendo DS. Looks like they dropped a game mode or two (Time Attack was my favorite), but it's nice to have Zookeeper here. I'm with the folks who have noticed that the left side of the screen is partially hidden on iPhone 4. This is why I give this app only 3 stars. It looks fine on my iPad. Will update my review when the iPhone issue is fixed.
My wish list would also include having Time Attack as a game mode. I don't always have time to play the longer games.

Stone Cold Puzzle Classic

Zookeeper was just about the best puzzle game ever made for the Nintendo DS, and now it's a stone-cold classic on the iPhone. Personally, I think this is the better version, since it does away with that wretched Quest Mode (which relied purely on luck) and is paced much more quickly. This is a very fast and challenging match-three puzzler, absolutely perfect for touch-screen controls, ideal for high-score hunters. I do recommend buying a stylus for control, as that feels quicker and more precise than fingers.

Zookeeper DX easily earns my highest score. 99 Cents?! This is an absolute steal, friends. If you doubt me, take a look at what Zookeeper DS is fetching these days. You want a great puzzle game on your iPhone? Here it is.
