Zuma is a fast-paced match three game released in 2003 by PopCap for a plethora of platforms and mobile devices including the PC, Xbox 360, IPod and many others. In 2009 PopCap released Zuma’s Revenge! for the PC and it has since been making it’s way across the platforms that it’s predecessor has already conquered. Now it makes it’s way to the Nintendo DS with both a retail release as well as a eShop/DSiWare download.
What You Need To Know
As in most of PopCap’s hits, this is another take on the addictive “Match Three” style of gameplay with a few interesting things to keep it different. As in the first Zuma you play as a frog who has been given the seemingly painful job of vomiting up multicolored balls. All of which is to stop the flow of new balls on their way to the Skull that denotes a “Game Over” when reached. The ball flow follows a predefined track that comes from off-screen to the Skull, the balls will continue to come until you have cleared all the ones on screen and in the container that supplies the flow. After you have cleared all the balls you are given a score based on how well you did with making combos and how you managed your time. There are many helpful power ups and ways to get extra points from things like fruit and gap bonuses just to name a couple.
