  1. Zookeeper is what a video game should be: easy to learn, hard to master.
  2. Even for veterans, the addition of wireless two-player support and enhanced touch-screen control is just about worth the asking price.
  3. It gives you immediate fun; the 6-minute challenge is perfect for when you are waiting for someone. The return of old school scoreboard gives it replay value. It's just pure and simple, unadulterated fun.
  4. The gameplay found in Zoo Keeper is both simplistic and addictive.
  5. It will delight gamers of all ages and the more you play the better you get. It promotes observation, color and pattern recognition skills, but the random nature of the game boards is more about reflexes than problem solving.
  6. Avery fun game. However, nobody should be playing $40 for it. It’s fun, but nowhere near worth it. Wait for a price drop on this little gem, because it’ll be worth it at half the price.
  7. I could have recommended Zoo Keeper for $10 or possibly even $15, but at full price, this is a complete rip-off.

    This is an excenlent game, but it deffinitly was not worth $40. Now that it has dropped to $20, every Ds owner should have this fun puzzler.

    This is a puzzle game with lasting appeal. It plays similar to Meteos, but is less flashy and perhaps more challenging to start.
