Play Zoombinis and guide the little blue creatures through fun and increasingly challenging puzzles on their way to a new home.

Zoombinis is a re-creation of the classic, award-winning 1990’s puzzle game Logical Journey of the Zoombinis. The small blue creatures, each with distinct personalities and appearances, are escaping imprisonment by the evil Bloats who have taken over the Zoombinis’ home. Players take on the role of guide and help the Zoombinis reach the safety of Zoombiniville.

Use logic, analyze data, spot patterns and hone problem solving skills. Players face a series of increasingly difficult challenges that stand between the Zoombinis and freedom. Twelve perilous puzzles each with 4 levels of increasing difficulty, a great story, and many fun and memorable characters make for an engaging and challenging experience.

We challenge you to get all the Zoombinis to safety!

Teacher Recommended!!!

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!


Challenging for adults too

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


Classic game, good remake, but a lot of rough edges.

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.
