Zoombinis Review - "edutainment at it's most adorable"- Touch Arcade
Zoombinis is a port from days of old and it’s ticking all kinds of memories for some. Touch Arcade notes:
In terms of its visual style, Zoombinis holds up rather well on paper, as the characters are all full of life and of course, timelessly cute. However, much like the gameplay, the animations are severely dated, and not even this mobile re-release can make them shine. Even all of the screenshots I’ve taken, despite their high resolution, look washed out and like a relic of the past.
If you have a child or an open mind for a edutainment, Zoombinis is worth checking out — just know that time doesn’t heal all wounds.

Out Now: Adventures of Pip
Adventures of Pip is a top-tier platforming game that’s all about evolving from a single pixel to a multi-pixel hero, and back again.
Adventures of Pip revitalizes the classic side-scrolling action platform genre. Pip — the ultimate digital underdog – is a lowly single pixel in a 32-bit world who proves that you can’t judge a hero by the fidelity of his shaders. During the game, Pip gains the ability to evolve and grow by absorbing pixels from his fallen foes. Those same pixels can then be used to blast through environment puzzles and enemies, devolving Pip back to a single pixel. Players will explore five stylized worlds and experience up to 10 hours of epic adventure saving Pip’s village from the evil Queen DeRezzia.
