About This Game

Things have gone wild at the Cartown Zoo!

Today's the grand opening of the Cartown Zoo, and there's still so much to do: zoo chow is running low, and all the baby animals are missing. Putt-Putt® and Pep need your child's help to reunite the little ones with their parents before Outback Al can open the gates. Along the way, they'll swing across alligator-infested rivers, play ice hockey with a polar bear, build a bridge out of icebergs, bop with dancing penguins, and enjoy other adventures. This zoo is full of loyal friends and captivating challenges that are sure to run wild through your child's imagination.

  • Take breaks from the action to play games, sing songs, paint Putt-Putt® or learn about the animals you find in the zoo.
  • Click Points reveal hundreds and hundreds of hidden surprises.
  • Use Putt-Putt's® special camera to take picture of your favorite zoo animals and print them out.
  • Out of time? You can save the game and finish it later.

Forget about the Witcher III or Skyrim, this game is the one and only open-world RPG you'll ever need.

Ahead of it's time, this game already got an immersive main quest, interesting side-quests, in-depth NPC's and a detailed/educational open world to explore.
these facts, combined with the amazing voice-casting and the tough puzzles makes the game for one of the better gaming-experiences you can get.

the only flaw I found this game to have are the slightly outdated graphics. However, I can not complain about this since I got a solid 100fps during my entire playtime.


If you're not playing this game, you are missing the real experience my friend.

Probably one of my most favorite innovative story-telling games of this year, and it's not even from this year.

Needs more squids, still 9.3/10 would play again

Have you ever wanted to be a part of a gang so hardcore they couldn't even talk about their operations? Have you ever wanted to live the bad life? Have you ever wanted to make money by being a boss?

I have. This game is about a purple car.

Putt Putt Saves the Zoo is one of the best games in existance, while people might argue that GTA or Elder Scrolls is better, they clearly haven't played Putt Putt.

Pros:
Cheap ($6.99) [2.79 at the time of this review]
Teaches you how to drive
Great dialogue
Intense gameplay featuring the life and death situations of baby animals
A++ voice acting from some of the best in the business
Fun minigames for some side action
Fluid animation
Brilliant storyline
HOT ZIGGITY

Cons:
Bugs (i encountered one animation glitch with the lion cub, which did not affect gameplay)

TL;DR:
A 12/10 game for a cheap price that will make your friends jealous.

a thrilling and gut-wrenching story of a young man named putt-putt, who was drafted into the vietnam war to fight against the communist forces of viet cong. throughout the game the player witnesses putt-putt's transformation from a nice christian boy into a cold-blooded killer. months of brutal jungle warfare have made putt-putt a fearsome warrior, who doesn't fear losing his own life. the game comes to a climax when putt-putt receives an order to rescue american POW's from a so-called "zoo", a viet cong camp where prisoners are locked inside tiger cages. putt-putt manages to inflitrate into the enemy camp and free the prisoners, but is captured and killed while defending their escape.

This is, by far, my favorite Putt-Putt game in the series.

I don't know about anyone else, but when I was younger, I used to wrap myself in a blanket, drinking hot cocoa, immersed in this game. Even though I am nearly an adult, I still enjoy and absolutely adore this game.

Just as the name implies, the zoo is in trouble, and it is up to Putt-Putt, along with his pet dog Pep, to help out. From icy terrain to the heart of the jungle, Putt-Putt must save animals scattered throughout the field.

One of my favorite things to do with each Putt-Putt game is that you can change the color. It's a little feature added to the series, but I always liked how you could paint this little fellow. (I always color him blue).

Despite the dusty years, Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo, and all games for that matter, continues to shine. The memories left behind gives nostalgia a warm welcome.
