Added DiffLines:
* DigitizedSprites: The first game uses pixel art (and the remake uses vectors), but the two TLC games have pre-rendered CGI images.

Added DiffLines:
* RecycledScript: The two TLC games have various puzzles that are obvious retreads. Jarringly, there's even a retread of Pizza Pass in ''Mountain Rescue'' featuring new creatures called the Norfs.

In ''Mountain Rescue, after a group of Zoombinis get lost exploring a mountain, they come across another group of explorers, a tribe called Boolies (named after Boolean data) who have also lost their way from their hometown of Booliewood. It turns out they were looking for their leader, the Grand Boolie Boolie, so the Zoombinis decide to find the other 400 Boolies needed to summon their leader.

Had 2 much less famous sequels called Mountain Rescue ''Mountain Rescue'' and Island Odyssey. ''Island Odyssey''. In ''Mountain Rescue, after a group of Zoombinis get lost exploring a mountain, they come across another group of explorers, a tribe called Boolies (named after Boolean data) who have also lost their way from their hometown of Booliewood. It turns out they were looking for their leader, the Grand Boolie Boolie, so the Zoombinis decide to find the other 400 Boolies needed to summon their leader. In ''Island Odyssey'', the Zoombinis discover the Bloats have since abandonded Zoombini Isle, leaving it an ecological wasteland. The Zoombinis send a team to survey the damage, revealing the local zerble population is on the verge of extinction. This causes the Zoombinis to send more teams out to try to restore their food chain and get them to begin reproducing, along with the eventual restoration of Zoombini Isle itself.

* CastOfSnowflakes: Half the Zoombinis are different in appearance. The other half are twins of the first half.
to:
* CastOfSnowflakes: Half In the original, half the Zoombinis are different in appearance. The other half are twins of the first half. This is different in the remake; while most zoombinis are different, it is possible to have more twins now, just [[ObviousRulePatch not on the same crew anymore]].

Added DiffLines:
* CastOfSnowflakes: Half HalfDressedCartoonAnimal: Though [[DownplayedTrope not very obvious due to her apron]], Ulla Instantaneous, the Zoombinis are different in appearance. The other half are twins innkeeper of the first half.Hotel Dimensia/Didimension Hotel, doesn't wear pants.

Added DiffLines:
* CastOfSnowflakes: Half UnexplainedRecovery: While the Zoombinis surviving failing most challenges to try again later are different {{Hand Wave}}d in appearance. The other half are twins of the first half.manual by saying they're resourceful, Bubble Wonder Abyss shows Zoombinis being sucked into a black hole and vaporized onscreen if you fail. And yet, they're right back at Shade Tree afterwards. There's also the easter egg of [[VideoGameCrueltyPotential throwing Zoombinis into the chasm in the Lion's Lair]]; they fall right back where they started, apparently from the ceiling.

Added DiffLines:
* CastOfSnowflakes: Half VideoGameCrueltyPotential: Of course there's the Zoombinis are different obvious way intentionally getting things wrong, but in appearance. The other half are twins of examples that you ''[[KarmaHoudini won't]]'' be punished for, you can electrocute a Zoombini in Stone Rise by dragging them onto an unavailable space, and in the first half.Lion's Lair, you can throw them into the chasm instead of placing them on the path. They [[UnexplainedRecovery wind up back where they started]], but still.[[note]]In fact, the latter is [[NotTheIntendedUse the safest and most reliable way to determine what voice a given Zoombini has]].[[/note]]

* BeeAfraid: Apparently, bees have no problem with Zoombinis. [[SynchronizedSwarming They do have a problem with Fleens.]] Then again, the Fleens are the ones who disturbed them first.

* BeefGate: The second half of the game ramps up the difficulty of the puzzles; the Fleens minigame specifically seems to exist to punish players who "cheated" some of the earlier games by creating twins, as you have to find the three Fleens that will trigger the GoshHornet swarm.

* EvilCounterpart: The Fleens may well be this to the Zoombinis. [[spoiler: On easier difficulties, each trait they have even directly corresponds to a Zoombini trait. On harder difficulties, their traits correspond to another Zoombini trait.]] ** Apparently, the Fleens used to be an offshoot of the Zoombinis until they were mutated by... bad hair products. * EvilLaugh: One of the several snippets of narration that can play at the Shade Tree rest stop includes the narrator bursting into one for no particular reason.

* LuckBasedMission: The Fleens puzzle can easily become this [[NoFairCheating if you use twins]]. You may well be leaving some Zoombinis behind at Hotel Dimensia/Didimension Hotel of you place your first Zoombini in the wrong room on Very Hard.
