Summary: Zoo Keeper is the first game I ever played on my daughter's Nintendo DS. It's a relatively easy game and non-intimidating for an older player like me. As I move slowly to other puzzle games (Jewel Quest right now), I always return to the Zoo to have some light-hearted fun! Just as my daughter introduced me to Nintendo ds, I have introduced my mother, 81 years old this month, to the Nintendo dsi. Her starter game is, of course, Zoo Keeper.
Summary: It ACTUALLY had an adorable story I wasn't expecting. Easy enough to keep your game flowing but challenging at some points. It's extremely cute. Just as fun as Bejeweled, or any other match-3 game. A lot of people say not to bother, but it's...not a bad game. It's cute, it's funny. I'd be tempted to say this is a Bejeweled for Otaku.
Summary: Okay...most may see this a stupid nitpick, but the obnoxious 'comments' from the zoo keeper/director/whatever are REALLY annoying to me, and unnecessary. Also, why do the animals have to look so mean and scowly all the time? That makes the game a bit less fun, IMHO. Should be more like the cell phone game "ZooZoo Club", where the animals at least look friendly. Aside from all that, the gameplay is fine for what it is.
Summary: The puzzle designs are very simple and easy to understand but will have you searching all over the board for a matching animal. A low timer will have you searching frantically for a match only to have you scream in agony when the game shows you the obvious match right in front of you after time runs out. Zoo Keeper makes you want to keep playing over and over again.Zo o Keeper is one of those games that you buy to keep you entertained.
