Zoombinis Desktop Info

Known Technical Issues

Zoombinis from the Windows App Store - unable to move past Hotel Dimensia.

We are aware of the issue and are working on a fix!

Not being able to move past a section or select a Zoombini.

Please try changing the graphics quality to a different (usually "faster") setting. This has been noticed most frequently in OS X 10.10 (Yosemite).

Fleens - all the Fleens are off the branch but the Zoombinis can't advance.

Please try changing the graphics quality - most commonly seen on "beautiful" - please change to "good."

Some puzzles are unsolvable in a way that all Zoombinis can get through.

Some puzzles can just be really hard, but if you think you've spotted an issue in the logic, please email us at support@terc.edu and include as much detail as possible including your device info and screenshots if possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

I remember the Zoombinis have "feet" sounds as they move - will those be restored?

This is still on the list of things to do. The sounds were in our earlier builds but in scenes where multiple Zoombinis were moving it resulted in a cacophony.

I'm a Kickstarter backer but didn't get my download.

Contact us (see below) and we'll take care of you.

What about the two Zoombinis sequels - Mountain Rescue and Island Odyssey?

We would like to do the sequels, but that work depends on how well the iPad version of the game does.


Please contact the place your purchased Zoombinis directly - Steam, Broderbund/Encore, Humble Bundle, Apple, etc.
