Welcome to the Zoombini Appreciation Club
This club is for all OCN members who have played a Zoombini game and fell in love with it


What are Zoombinis?

Quote:
Zoombinis are the main characters in a line of educational software created by TERC, and designed by Scot Osterweil and Chris Han****. It was originally released by Brøderbund Software (now The Learning Company) in 1995. The series is aimed at children older than 8 years. Some educators consider the original to be one of the greatest educational computer games of all time[citation needed], and numerous awards are shared by the trilogy. ~Wiki

Gameplay?

Quote:
he original storyline of the series begins with the first game, Zoombinis: Logical Journey (originally called The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis when released by Brøderbund). As explained in its introduction, the Zoombinis are the peaceful and successful inhabitants of an island called Zoombini Isle (or Zoombini Island). One day their lives are interrupted by an evil race known as the Bloats, who offer to expand their businesses and improve their quality of life. The Zoombinis naively trust the Bloats, who soon take over the island and enslave the Zoombinis. The Zoombinis devise an escape route and set sail on a boat to find a new homeland (later called "Zoombiniville"). To complete the game, the player must transport 625 Zoombinis in groups of 16 through a total of 12 puzzles to Zoombiniville. Since The Learning Company purchased Brøderbund Software in 1998 they have created two more games (sequels to the original) known as Zoombinis: Mountain Rescue and Zoombinis: Island Odyssey, both with different storylines. ~Wiki
