Logical Journey of the Zoombinis (also known as Zoombinis Logical Journey in the remake) is an educational puzzle computer game developed and published by Brøderbund Software for the original and The Learning Company for the remake.
The Zoombinis are a race of small blue creatures depicted with varying facial features, initially living in prosperous peace on a small island called Zoombini Isle. However, they are tricked and enslaved by their neighbors, the Bloats. The game depicts the Zoombinis’ search for a new home, featuring a variety of logical puzzles which the player must solve to get the Zoombinis to their new home.
Most of the puzzles involve the physical features of the Zoombinis as part of the solution. For example, in the puzzle ‘Allergic Cliffs’, the player is given a choice of 2 bridges, each of which will allow Zoombinis to pass only if they have certain combinations of features.
When the Zoombinis home, Zoombini Isle, is taken over by creatures called Bloats, they decide to escape to a new home. But they can only 16 at a time, and they must cross many obstacles that require logic to get past. It’s up to you to get past all the puzzles to get all of the Zoombinis to their new home.
