Dit spel sluit goed aan bij de belevingswereld van vier- en vijfjarigen. Het redden van dieren met een grappig autootje zal de meeste kinderen aanspreken. Putt-Putt redt de zoo was de eerste adventure die mijn dochter Julia (toen net 5 jaar) zelfstandig kon spelen. In tegenstelling tot bijvoorbeeld Freddi Fish 1 en 2, is het aantal verschillende schermen niet al te groot en liggen de voorwerpen die nodig zijn voor het redden van de dieren steeds op dezelfde plek. Julia heeft Putt-Putt al vele keren uitgespeeld en begrijpt nu goed wat de bedoeling van een adventure is. En vooral het fotograferen heeft haar gegrepen. Momenteel is geen fototoestel meer veilig voor haar...
This game is a lot of fun and highly recommended to any kids between the ages of five and ten.
In the end, PPSTZ's flaws only stand out in contrast to its bountiful charms. Parents with preschoolers who know their way around a mouse pad will ignore the shortcomings, as will children who will welcome Putt-Putt like a favorite playmate back for a return visit. Unlike Barney, he wears well in reruns.

Although Putt Putt Saves the Zoo doesn't have alternative pathways through the game that vary the game play as with other Humongous games, it's still utterly charming. So it might be shorter than other Putt Putt adventures but there is still lots to do for young players. And it's entertaining enough to invite them back for more.

Plein d'humour, porté par un héros très dynamique et une bande-son entraînante, Pouce-Pouce Sauve le Zoo nous laisse légèrement sur notre faim à cause de sa durée de vie très courte. Mais les enfants de 5 à 10 ans y trouveront largement leur compte.
