Zoombinis Mountain Rescue Reviewed
10:37 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

GamersInfo has posted a review of Zoombinis Mountain Rescue. Part of the Zoombinis series of titles by The Learning Company, ZMR is an edutainment title that focuses on math and logic skills, challenging players to rescue stranded Zoombinis by using analysis and reason to overcome various puzzles.

Challenges range from guessing assigned attributes via a mode called Turtle Hurdle to the reviewer's favorite: Aqua Cube.

Here the puzzle is more of a "guess my rule" challenge than an attribute one. Using trial and error, you work to figure out which lever moves the light around the cube in which direction. But you only have a limited number of tries to rescue your Zoombinis and avoid the Fleens, so some educated guessing is also required. Because the light moves around a 3D cube, the challenge of spatial relations also comes into play in this particular puzzle. Much easier said than done, thatís for sure.
The full review can be found at GamersInfo.
