In Zoo Transport, the player must drive various animals to the zoo without letting any crates fall off of the truck. The truck is controlled using only a forward and reverse button, and the player stacks the crates in the back before beginning. The game features realistic physics, so the player must carefully navigate the bumpy terrain to prevent animals’ crates from tumbling off. Reading is only required for the in-game instructions, and there is no violence or inappropriate content in this game, so Zoo Transport is recommended for players ages 6 and up.
Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.
In Zoo Transport, the player must pay close attention to the truck's speed and the layout of the bumpy terrain, as crates can easily fall off. If they do, the player has to start over. Additionally, the different animals have unique challenges for the driver, as the monkey tends to jump a lot while the parrot may try to fly away. The player must pay attention to her speed, the terrain, crates, and the animals' behaviors all at once, thus Focus skills are crucial for success in this game.
Managing our actions, feelings and behaviors.
Zoo Transport provides the player with a less than adequate truck for transporting animals to the zoo. This makes the drive a challenging one, as the player must be very careful to not go too fast over bumps or down hills and accidentally lose her valuable cargo. The animals behave differently as well, and driving must be constantly regulated depending on their behavior. For example, the turtle does not like to be transported too quickly and the player will lose the level if she drives too fast. Self-Control skills are essential to resist the urge to just drive to the destination without attending to the other necessities for a successful transport. By monitoring her gameplay behavior closely, the player can take the time to consider the terrain and slowly move the animals to safety.
