Oh my God. I had forgotten. Tempted to pick this up even though it'll have nothing but nostalgia to offer me at 29.

I've no recollection of the original game at all - did it make its way to the UK? Looks interesting though....

Im 29 from the UK and I remember this. Played it back in primary school but only briefly. Even in that short amount of time it made its mark on me. It was probably the first game I ever played on a PC

Some UK schools used it. My kids had all three of these games when they were little, and played them obsessively. I played slightly less obsessively. It was a marvellous game. They did a Kickstarter to raise the money to get it onto iPad, which I backed at a ludicrous level that got me (though I haven't got it yet) a Zoombini plushie.

I realise I should explain for people who aren't familiar. It's an educational game, but unlike every other educational game ever the educational elements are properly embedded into the gameplay, and they teach logical reasoning. The first difficulty level is pretty easy, but for all sorts of reasons it's very hard to get all the Zoombinis safely through the hardest level.
