Logical Journey of The Zoombinis - Release - Name Changes

Name Changes

The original release of the game by Broderbund Europe in March 1996 came in three languages: British (v1.0BR), French (v1.0FR), and German (v1.0DE). The US division of Broderbund made some minor changes and released a US version (v1.1) in December 1996. As part of the US release they chose to change the names of several areas of the game as follows:

  • Zoombiniton was renamed to Zoombiniville.
  • The Marshy Trail was renamed to Who's Bayou.
  • Didimension Hotel was renamed to Hotel Dimensia.

In addition the following changes were made to v1.1:

  • A 32-bit version of the game was added, providing performance improvements for 32-bit operating systems. The 16-bit version remained available for compatibility with Windows 3.x.
  • A new help feature was added, providing assistance to players who are stuck.
  • Minor changes were made to some areas. For example, color-changing mushrooms were added to Shelter Rock.
  • A link to 'Practice Mode' was added to the map screen (previously the player was required to press the keyboard shortcut CTRL+P in order to use Practice Mode)
  • The rate of advancement through difficulty levels was slowed, meaning that players advance in levels after three successful passes through a leg of puzzles instead of one pass.
  • The save game format was changed slightly. Saves from v1.0 are compatible with v1.1, but not the other way around.
