The Wild Thornberrys: Rambler

The Wild Thornberrys: Rambler PC CD animated Nickelodeon TV cartoon arcade game! 






Visit five different continents and brave the elements in The Wild Thornberrys: Rambler, an arcade-game series that takes players all over the world in pursuit of cheese munchies, stolen music, and a few juicy bugs.Rambler gives players a chance to become the characters from the popular Nickelodeon show, The Wild Thornberrys. In the Arctic, you can play Eliza as she hops from ice floe to ice floe, dodging polar bears as she reunites lost baby animals with their parents. In South America, Darwin the monkey retrieves stolen cheese munchies from wild monkeys, trying to avoid becoming a snack for crocodiles in the process. African monkeys in this game are also kleptomaniacs--they've stolen Debbie's CD collection, and she must chase through the jungle to get them back! In Africa, Donnie eats his way through a bug-filled maze in a simplified version of Pac-Man, while Nigel faces off against an animal poacher named Kip O'Donnell in Australia.

Ardent fans of The Wild Thornberrys will find a lot to love in this game, which focuses on the characters, and features bright, cheerful animation. Other players, less interested in the show, may find fault with Rambler: its gameplay and soundtrack are both glitch-ridden, and many of the games lack humor and a true sense of challenge; they're too repetitive and don't increase in difficulty quickly enough to maintain player interest. What's more, the program's educational content is minimal. Still, if your child is just learning the basics of computer gaming and is a fan of The Wild Thornberrys, Rambler might be a good choice.

Take on the world with the Thornberry characters in this CD-ROM adventure. Based on the popular kids' TV show, this game will have children joining forces with the Thornberry family to solve problems, battle villains, and save animals in five exotic locations around the world. Swing with Darwin through the trees of the South American rain forest to recapture his cupcake from a band of mischievous marmosets. Rescue animals from the poachers by using Nigel's boomerang. Click on any one of the six continents to get the action started, then launch into the game. Earn points for solving problems, and even get a timer bonus for completing levels quickly. Collect various items to earn extra turns. Kids will love this innovative action game.

For Windows (32-bit Systems) [*Please review compatibility/platform sections in 'What You Get']


This item is for the original media, and includes only the media (ie. CD, floppy ...) UNLESS specifically stated above and/or in the title. If more than just the media is included, it will state which items are (ie. box, manual, etc ). Items that come in a sleeve refer to a generic CD sleeve (typically white) and will be sent with shipping protection to avoid damage during transit. If available, we will also send the front and/or back CD inserts if in stock. If these are important to you, please message us to verify we have them available to send. Please do not assume items are included other than what's stated. Again, ask questions PRIOR to purchasing if you have any concerns.


All images/pictures are stock photos and are for reference only, mainly to show the type of game you will be getting. Please read "WHAT YOU GET" for what is included with the media. Screenshots may vary based on your own computer system, video card, monitor, etc.


Computers are like people, each one is different. Unlike console games, a computer game may install and work flawlessly on one system but may need adjustments on another. This is due to a variety of factors, mainly the OS platform running, video card you have, drivers, protection software installed, etc. Many times manufacturers release updates to games to fix bugs and add enhancements. We would be happy to help get the game going on your computer, but ultimately compatibility issues are the responsibility of the buyer. We suggest going to Google and searching for the name of the game along with the words "system requirements" to determine if your system is suitable. Ultimately, we are not responsible for software compatibility problems or publisher's errors.


Stated within the auction is what platform the game will work on (ie. Windows, Mac, Linux...) This is a generic statement and specific platform versions (ie. XP, Vista...) will have to be researched by the buyer. Games that came out PRIOR to XP or higher will not specifically state they will work on that release, but only because they came out before those versions were made. Many, if not most, will work on XP or higher with a few quick adjustments. We provide instructions with all items purchased on how to do this adjustment using the Program Compatibility Wizard. If we find out that an item will definately not work on a specific version, we will state it. For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program if the Program Compatibility Wizard does not work.

64-Bit Windows OS Systems:
For 64-bit Operating Systems, older games most likely will NOT work due to 64-bit systems not being able to run 16-bit programming code (most games prior to 2000). For DOS games, you may need to play it with a free DOSbox program.

Macintosh Systems:
For Macintosh programs, most older games will need to be run in Classic Environment if you have a MAC OS X 10.0 - 10.4 version. Please research Google on how to do this, or send us a message for information prior to purchasing. If your MAC OS system doesn't support Classic Environment (ie. MAC OS X 10.5 or Higher OR Intel Macs), you will have to try running it using the free program called SheepShaver, but compatibility is not ensured. Please research prior to purchasing or ask questions.


Please verify you have the required hardware in order to use the specified media (ie. CD, DVD, floppy drives, etc.) If the item comes as a floppy disc, make sure you have either the needed 3.5" floppy drive or the bigger and older 5.25" floppy drive.


  • Ask questions PRIOR to purchasing an order to avoid any confusion.
  • Be patient if there are problems during installation or gameplay. Typically someone else has already ran into that problem and has listed a solution online. Contact us and we will do our best to help.
  • Be sure to update your video card drivers and search for updates to the game from the manufacturer.
