Zuma

  • Generic Company Place Holder Zuma

Speed, dexterity, and color vision are all you need to play Zuma. In this Aztec-themed puzzle game, you shoot colored balls at others on a spiraling track. Three or more balls of the same color disappear, leaving gaps that quickly close. If too many balls stack up, they reach the grinning golden skull, and you lose.

Sound simple? Not quite. Each track follows a different loop--some even go underground. Some of the twists are quite devious. The four kinds of special power balls can buy you a little time, but you'll have to keep hopping and shoot strategically if you're going to avoid the dreaded golden death's head.

Note: This link takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download a one-hour timed demo of the software.
