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.

Kath J., on 2 February 2017:
"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 :) "Made by a small indie teamStefan Leuchtenberg — Art, Illustrations, Animations, Character Design

We work with other external artists and professionals for sound, music, translations, etc.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).

The Zwuggels - A Beach Holiday Adventure for Kids reviews and comments

Honestly The game is very good. I didn't Even expect that. It is perfect for toddlers. Of the Pros: + Price + Picture (Frankly I got a visual pleasure) + Quite easy and affordable achievements, if you decide to pass it for the "perfect game" + Can be noted and the simplicity of the game, just for the child (the text is large and understandable, without sophistication. The game Itself is short, but if you are going to pass on 100% achievement, her life will last for 40-60 minutes.

The Zwuggels-A Beach Holiday Adventure for Kids is a game in the genre of Point & Click. Very Nice and pleasant game, in every sense from the plot and to the affectation characters, if I liked the adult, the child and depressed. Pluses + Plot (not very fascinating, but for children the same) + Graphics (very nice and beautiful) + Simplicity (for the child, what you need) + Achievements (quite simple) + Price Cons-Cards-Short:( Total If you want to feel like a child or you have it, then take this game. It is very informative and interesting, so also for a little money. Liked the review? Subscribe to the Curator

If you have children in the family from 4 to 6. This game is for them, it is really nice and then it does not cost much for what it offers. So I recommend it only to them even if it lasts a little. For everyone else. It is Not convenient because you end up in half an hour, excluding take the various achievements. That are slightly buggy here. (That's why I have 3 hours of play. ^^;) And I don't even recommend it to the very easy achievement hunters. ^_^ Long story short, if the player is a child/girl from 4 to 6 years old. It's a great game where you will have fun discovering what the game holds. ^_^ For everyone else? Pass over is not a game for you. ^_^

I bought this game for the nephew of my partner, a small 4 and a half years. Technically, it confirms all the indications listed on the shop page and is really a small tool to encourage the development of different skills. The Italian translations of the history written in rhymes in some places seem a bit ' forced, but you feel that behind this game there is a professionally valid work and certainly recommend. Only Negative Recorded: It is very short, and the little one has literally "devoured" in a short time. On The one hand, this proves that "The Zwuggels" is up to the capacity of the audience to whom it is aimed... On the other hand, it is a question of whether such an immediate and "instinctive" approach is the best thing to propose in a children's game. To posterity the ardua sentence!
