840471_3jpgDeveloper Spin Bottle Games and publisher Chillingo finally re-released the award winning Zooloretto [App Store] to the iPhone last night.

The original 1.0 release of the game was quickly pulled due to the presence of a major bug affecting gameplay. The game has since been updated and re-released as a 1.1 version that addresses the issue.

Amongst other awards, the original board game won Australian game of the year in 2007. Zooloretto. places the player in a colorful, cartoony zoo setting and challenges them to use small, large, wild, and exotic animals and their young to try and attact as many visitors as possible to the zoo. The game involves strategy and planning, as there's only room for so many animals in the zoo.

One forum participant provides an overview of the gameplay and scoring.

App Store Link: Zooloretto, $4.99

    Some games are just better suited to being board games - this could be one.

    This is an excellent version of an excellent family board game. The interface us well done, the cartoon graphics are clear, and gameplay is great. Including pass-and-play multiplayer is appreciated.

    The board game of Zooloretto now fits in your pocket, and is well worth it!

    All this app does is crash during the loading screen. Re-started 2nd generation iPhone and still doesnt work. Looks like they still haven't gotten the kinks worked out yet.

      Do you have a jailbroken iPhone? Did you update to the latest version of the game? I'm in touch with the developer, and they haven't heard anything about this problem.

    I had actualy enjoyed the game, it was relaxing and entertaining at the same time. I had played it with no problems for weeks, and as soon as I did the last update on the 2nd generation iPhone, I have not been able to play it again either. The start-up screen comes up and then it crashes. I have tried everything including deliting the app on the iPhone and reinstalling directly from iTunes. I'm quickly loosing my patience since this is an app I paid for. I hope you guys are listening to customers complaints and do something about it already.

    I have a 3GS and the game just crashes at the start-up screen like other people have reported. I've sent feedback via the web site, iTunes and email but no-one has borthered to contact me. When is this going to be fixed? One of the games I want to play most and all they've done is taken my money. I've seen plenty of reports of this problem so I do not believe the developer can not be aware of it. (My iPhone is an official phone, no jailbreaking, fully up-to-date and only a few weeks old.)

    Thank you for fixing the issue with the game after installing the last iPhone update. There is more thing thing that I think you might want to know about the zooloretto game. I have noticed ever since your last upgrade that the zebras and cangarous don't ever come up. It's as if they don't exist. Is this do to another glitch?

    There should be items to purchase. The game looses intrest when there is no more room to grow.
