Golden Oldie with Dave Seaman
Zooreal
by Neil Dnuma

Now this goes slightly against my Golden Oldie ethos, in that although this game is very nice, I also found it to be rather buggy, so it's with some hesitation that I recommend it. However both of my kids absolutely love it and repeatedly ask to watch me play "the kangaroo game". If you don't encounter the bugs this is indeed a nice game with some funny moments and good puzzles, with terrific character animation. You play as Carla (in case you hadn't already guessed, she's a kangaroo) and must save your friends Kelvin the koala, Freddy the butterfly fish and Wilma the water rat from the zoo. To do so you must solve various puzzles. I haven't managed to complete the game yet because of some pretty major bugs (this may not be the game's fault, it sometimes happens running games made with older versions of AGS).

Basically it comes down to this - can you resist the charm of playing a well-animated kangaroo as she tries to help her friends escape from the zoo?

....

Thought not.
