New Update and New Languages Available

Hello Everyone,

A new update for Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo is now available which contains the following:

  • I have updated ScummVM from 1.6.0 to 1.7.0 across Windows, OS X and GNU/Linux.
  • opengl_nearest is the new display renderer. This provides really sharp looking graphics and also ensures 100% Steam Overlay functionality for Windows. It runs at your monitors current resolution.
  • I have completely re-written the shell launcher for GNU/Linux and implemented a new libraries system. This should allow for many more users of GNU/Linux to play the game and not just people on the latest versions of Ubuntu and Mint.
  • The Modern ScummVM skin now works on GNU/Linux. You can access the ScummVM menu by pressing CTRL+F5 (or Fn+F5 for Mac OS X) at any time.
  • ScummVM source code has been updated to 1.7.0. SDL source code is now included.

Also, I'd like to officially announce that the game is now availabe in French (Français), German (Deutsch) and Dutch (Nederlands) and the languages are free for all customers.

Enjoy the update and thank you for playing :)

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.

This is a good game for any FPS lover. However i recommend you read the manga first so the game makes more sense.

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.

During the late 90’s/early 2000’s Humongous Entertainment released an absolutely fantastic stream of “edutainment” point and click adventures for children. These titles focus on a range of light academics including basic geography, basic to upper elementary level mathematics, logical thinking, critical thinking and puzzle solving, topped off with reinforcement of good manners and polite social etiquette. At the lower end of the age spectrum, they may require some adult supervision and supportive guidance, but there is no better series of games for a child’s first venture into PC gaming.

Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo is the pinnacle of the Putt-Putt Franchise. Between that absolutely brilliant opening theme and the best arctic exhibit in all of gaming, Saving the Zoo will forever hold the trophy for best Putt-Putt game of all time in my mind. To this very day I will shamelessly replay this game and enjoy it every bit as much as when I was a child. My children WILL grow up with this game in their lives and your kids should as well.

In all of its original glory comes Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo on Steam. This was one of the earliest games I remember playing, if not the oldest. It's a great point and click game. But it's just that, the game and only the game without any improvements. I ended up beating it in just over 30 minutes time. Absolutely recommended for anyone looking for a nostalgia hit or for any kids.

Alt + Enter changes full screen game to windowed. S goes to the save game "manager." ESC skips the cutscene.

Obligatory Score: 9/10
