We’ve been keeping an eye out for Zoombinis, the classic educational game that was slated to arrive on Android this summer. Well; it looks like after a very successful Kickstarter campaign, it is due out on Google Play on August 6th.
Zoombinis is developed in conjunction with the world class designers at FableVision Studios, an award-winning educational transmedia developer, along with Learning Games Network.
Â“Together we have recreated the Zoombinis adventure so that it can be shared with a whole new generation, in a touch screen format,” said David Libby, Director of Technology, TERC. Â“With the advances in technology since the Zoombinis first appeared in the Â’90s, we were able to craft the perfect blend of problem solving with entertainment that can be enjoyed in mobile or classroom setting.”
Numbering in the hundreds, the Zoombinis need your help. The small blue creatures, each with distinct personalities and appearances, are all imprisoned by the evil Bloats who took over their home Â– and you need to help them reach the safety of Zoombiniville. Using logic, data analysis, pattern finding and problem solving skills, children and adults will face a series of increasingly difficult challenges set within entertaining environments such as Pizza Pass, Titanic Tattooed Toads and Mudball Wall. Help the Zoombinis travel in groups until all 400 of them are safe in Zoombiniville.
Per the press release, the game will cost $4.99.
