I remember getting trial versions of this game on older computers and playing the crap out of this game. It was fun, addicting, and could put you in a daze very quickly.
Zuma Deluxe is a puzzle game where you control a rotating from from a top down view in what looks like an ancient Aztec/Mayan temple of sorts. There is a track on the screen that has multicolored balls moving through the track. The objective is to shoot colored balls from the mouth of the rotating frog onto balls along the track. Once three or more colors are formed together from a ball from the frog's mouth, the balls disappear. But watch out! There is an end to the track! So as your balls move along this track, if you don't lessen the line of the track, then you could easily find yourself in the losers pit.
My big deal is that I have played this game countless times before. I didn't want to play through every single level ever all over again. No big deal! I played the first and second level, and the AI recognized my skill level and asked me if I would like to go to a level more fitting for my skill level. Nothing makes me happier when a game recognizes my ability to play at a higher difficulty, and tailors itself to that difficulty.
Make no mistake. This game isn't a serious buy. If you want something to pass the time, or get bored by the expensive AAA titles, pick up this game and give it a whirl. If you hate time passing puzzle games, then you might not like this game. I will never uninstall this title though. Never. Not even to make room for Deus Ex: Human Revoution.
