You think you know Zuma??? Think again!!
If you played Zuma Deluxe, you're in for a surprise with this one. The graphics are 100% better, the game makes more sense, and the game boards are much more fun. I literally have not turned off this game since I got it.
Things that are the same:
You're still shooting marbles to make matches of 3. Extra points are given for matches of more than 3, and if making the match sets off a chain reaction of making more matches. Shooting through gaps in the marbles earns extra points.
You still have the coins to hit for more points, although it's fruit in this game.
You start off the game with 3 lives, and earn an extra life for every 50,000 points you earn.
There's still an ace time to beat for extra points.
You have the same power-ups: exploding, slow down, reverse, and a faster shooting marble.
Levels get harder with more intricate paths, and the addition of new colored marbles.
Things that are different:
A much more linear game play. No more wandering through caves wondering what you're doing and where you're going.
Each level has 10 games. At the end of each game, a friendly fat guy with a spear and a big smile shows you a board that gives your stats for the game, and offers tips on how to play the game better.
You get extra points for not dying during a game. 1000 points in level one, 2000 points in level two, and so on.
At the end of 10 games, you have a Boss Battle with a tiki god. The directions for beating the tiki god are somewhat unclear, but you can have multiple chances of beating him, and they don't cost you any of the lives you've stored up. You DO get another life if you beat him the first time around.
You now earn "milestones"....on the 5th game of each level, it marks your spot for you. If you lose all of your lives before the next milestone, you have the option of starting at the beginning of the level that your last milestone was in WITH the same points that you had at the time. (For example, I start level 3 with 60,000 points. I pass the milestone in level 3, but lose all my lives before getting to the milestone in level 4. I have the option of going back to the beginning of level 3 with the same 60,000 points I had when I was there before.#
I THINK there are 6 levels,,,,I haven't made it through the 5th. :#
Three new power-ups: a lightning bolt, which removes all marbles of the color you target, a lazer, in which lazers shoot out of the frog's eyes and remove any 4 marbles you target, and a bomb, in which the frog shoots out 3 bombs that will clear a path all the way across the board in the direction that you shoot it.
The speed marble power up has been improved; it now shoots a light the same color as the marble, in theory making it easier to find and hit the marbles in the path.
Another cool addition is a cross-hairs symbol that hovers where ever your mouse is; it changes color to match the marble ready to shoot, making it easier to find and hit the right color marbles.
The reverse and slow down power-ups have been shortened and don't last as long as they in the previous Zuma.
The marbles are smaller and it's more of a challenge to hit he right one.
The background graphics, while SOOOO much better than in the first game, can be distracting because they match the colors of the marbles.
Each time a power-up is given to a marble, a big glow comes down to show you where the power-up is. It's helpful and distracting at the same time.
In summary....get the game!! It's a fun, addictive, mindless time spender/waster, and definitely worth the money.

Revenge of the frog
Zuma's Revenge is the sequel to the great marble popper Zuma Deluxe from 2003. You shoot colored marbles at the incoming marble chains to destroy them. After you get enough points, new balls stop coming in, and you have to clear the chains before they reach the mouth of doom. To get the points faster you can shoot at bonus items, make chain and gap bonuses, etc. The game is pretty fast paced and some levels even require you to jump between pads, but have no fear, from time to time bonuses appear on the marbles, which can really turn the tide. Every 10 levels you encounter a boss, which requires some tactics to beat. After you complete the main mode, challenges and the gauntlet await. The graphics of the game are nice, I especially liked the underwater levels. A really good sequel to the great original.

It was ok, but I prefer Luxor
When I played Zuma, I enjoyed it so much I was quick to bounce on this. But it let me down a little. Here are my thoughts on the game:
The challenges of some levels
The Game had achievements you could unlock
Didn't take long to finish the levels
Didn't hook me
As well as trying to shoot the boss in boss battle, you had to make sure the balls didn't go through the skull AND try to dodge the skulls that they threw at you. It was all a bit tiring,
This game is good for a time killer. I prefer Luxor.

Good, but way too short
Took me about 3 hours to complete total, and took my husband even less time. Definitely not anywhere near the length or difficulty of the original Zuma Deluxe

Can't finish the game
I really enjoyed this till the final challenge. I have older Zuma versions that had enough difficulty throughout but could finish. The levels have enough challenge that it seems poorly thought out to make the final level so long. There is nothing on the final level to slow down the speed, blast sections or reverse so it is just a long endless piece. If the gamers fixed the finish I would give it 5 stars.

Disappointing at best
This game is similar to the old Tumblebugs 2 but lacks the fun backgrounds of Tumblebugs 2. There are lots better marble shooter games out there. The boss-battles were not explained and after 3 minutes of having the shooter facing backwards and blasting marbles into the bottom of the screen I gave up trying to figure out how to turn the shooter to face the boss target. A tedious game. Best I can say is that the marbles are colorful.
