My girls LOVE this game and play it frequently for long periods of time. Sometimes, I have to read the clues given and explain them to the girls before they can proceed, but more often than not they are able to figure it out on their own.
IF you are looking for a fast action, thrilling, whiz-bang, cool graphics game, this is NOT what you're looking for. This is more of a game of strategy and thinking than run around and kill the aliens kind of game. Your child or student will have to be fairly independent to play this game and be able to do a lot of problem solving and thinking on their own. Also, if you're child/student has a low tolerance for frustration, you might not want to purchase this game. Frequently, it takes several tries to get the strategy or riddle figured out before the player is successful. There are several difficulty settings, but even at the lowest setting your child/student probably needs to be at least 5 or 6 years old to play on his or her own.
I purchased the Zoombinis Mini 2 Pack from rksglobalbooks thru Amazon Marketplace and both DVD's downloaded with ease on our XP. So if you want to get a current version that gives you no problems, check out rksglobalbooks. I got the cd's today, popped them in the computer and my son is playing as we speak.
Rksglobalbooks offers expedited shipping (if you want it). I got the item in 3 business days (priority mail). So if you want this specific Zoombinis product, this is the merchant to go with. I am very happy.
Just a note: One reviewer also said that with the older cd's you should say "yes" to loading Quicktime 2.1 when the option appears and then there should be no problems running the program.
But when we got the new computer with Windows Vista we bought this two-pak (thinking it would be updated for Vista) and it doesn't work.
We had to boot up the old computer with XP in the Den so the kids could play zoombini on that system. Only the original Zoombini logical game disk works on XP operating system. The Zoombini Mountain Rescue game that comes in this two-pak does not work on either of our computers XP or Vista, so it was a waste of money. Hope they make a compatible disk soon.
