StoryEach chapter is a unique game, with its own mechanic that motivates kids. First, they get to know their new friends as they help them with activities like climbing a cliff, feeding their little baby monster, or helping them with their school work.
The next day, the Zwuggels leave for vacation. Time to pack their bags!
In the morning, they make sandwiches and soon fly the airship through a mighty storm and eventually make it to their destination. At the ocean, they set up beach chairs, learn to put on sunscreen, and then simply relax, building a sandcastle.
The calm ends when they find a message in a bottle from a stranded cat! A boat must be found, repaired and painted. Together they fend off sharks, go fishing, feed dolphins, tickle turtles and find the marooned cat. Will they find the legendary treasure?
Playing the many mini-games, each with their own unique interactions, your children discover the story at their own speed.
Written in delightful rhymes“Zwuggels are lovely, joyous things,
they’re friendly, kindly creatures.
They’re really small rather than tall
with funny, charming features.”
What parents say about the gameNote: These comments were made for the mobile app version.

"Absolutely loved it. Grandson enjoyed it so much is asking if you doing another.. Graphics were wonderful. Each story kept max amazed he's started from the beginning now."
Jeni R., on 16. September 2016:
"My 4 year old's first game Wanted to finally introduce our 4 year old to games and chose this for its cute characters and innocence. He needed some gentle explanation for the controls and the idea that he could let go of things to try them in places but after that, he loved it. His eyes lit up on the second level when he saw a little boy Zwuggel play with a train, enthused to Mama & after stopping, he emulated the girl climbing across the waterfall using sticks for hand and footholds. Full marks from this parent -- good safe fun :) "

From mobile to your desktopThis game was initially developed for mobile devices, and we wanted to bring it to the large screens of desktops as well!
For the Steam version, we added keyboard input in some of the chapters, where we believe makes intuitively sense.
The majority of the chapters is played with the mouse, by pointing, clicking, and dragging.
Also, only the Steam version comes with Achievements (Psst, some hidden ones, too).
