Brief Game Reviews: Putt-Putt Saves the Zoo

Before you pass judgement, know that Ron Gilbert worked on this game.

This is a game I played as a little kid. I was surprised when I found it on Steam later in life. It was cheap, so I bought it.

The game actually runs on the SCUMM Engine… same as Maniac Mansion and Sam and Max. Humongous Entertainment made it, along with a number of other SCUMM Engine games geared for little kids.

The fun of the game is that you can click on almost anything that looks interesting and something will happen. Usually an animation and a sound. There’s beatnik monkeys and joke telling parrots waiting to be clicked on.

I don’t know. It was really easy to beat the game now as an adult. It’s a great game if you’re a parent and you have a 4-7 year old kid. But I’m not.
