    I like Marble Popper games and this one is a nice one! Now keep in mind that this game was made quite a while ago so the graphics aren't going to be up-to-date but the game is awesome! Every level you progress it gets harder and let me tell you something, it gets really, really hard! I would recommend this game if you enjoy Casual or Relaxing Games, otherwise I'm not sure if you would find much enjoyment in it.

    It is a fun game but the only difference between some of the higher levels is the speed which is a little disappointing. Zuma's revenge is a better version of the game. It has more options and the levels have more to them.

    It is the time for a review. I have hit almost 8000 hours... Okay, so lets not talk about how much of my life I have wasted on this game. What we should talk about is how cool the game is. Its casual, easy to play, no microtransactions, and just a good game overall. I like to play it with youtube or netflix open and just chill while I play watching a movie or something. This game gives a new meaning to "Netflix and chill". When I got this I expected just a game that I would play every once in a while... But I play it ALL the time. Awsome, adictive, casual, and fun. Nice for arcade gamers aswell.

    What more can you ask for for 4.99?

    Guys, guys...

    This game is evil!
    The very core of evil I am telling you.
    How come a sane person kills hours and hours of her precious time, staring at a frog which throws colored balls out of it's mouth... and actually identify with it otherwise?

    I remember my high school nights, instead of going out and drinking until the next morning as all my other friends did, (Was it the game or was I too much of a geek? Anyway;) I played this game! For hours! As the levels got higher and harder, I felt the satisfaction of being this good at something.
    It gives you the kind of feeling that you manage to catch that plate right before it hit the ground you know?

    Also, I find this game as therapeutic since it doesn't allow you to think of anything else but your next move.
    Well, since this game was one of the first ones I searched for when I got into Steam...

    Okaythegameisgoodarright!

    Get it! Play it! Serve the evil forces for all I care!
    We shall see eachother on the dark side my chicka.

    One of my favorite casual/match3 games on Steam. It gets really intense in the later game.
    May give you a heart attack towards "I'm gonna lose this one, Oh Sh!t save, OMG no difference, OMG SAVE AGAIN, phew"
    It gets addictive.
    The only negative thing is that resulution is low and the steam notifications take up 1/4 of the screen, but it gets solved with a "Busy" status on friend list.

    9.5/10 - Would play again

    About as good as casual games can get. Perfect gameplay, ultra crisp graphics, catchy beats, extremely easy to just pick up and play.

    Just don't show it to your mom/sister/girlfriend if you're sharing the PC, because you won't be able to get to that PC ever again :D

    The SteamPlay icon says this game runs on Macs. It lies. Okay, technically it *does* run on old Macs; the system requirements list "OS:OS X version 10.5.8". That doesn't mean "or newer", that's just that release. So if you're still rockin' Leopard it's a good game and probably one of the few that will run on a system of that vintage. Or it's great if you have a PC, which is where all my play has happened. Newer Macs, don't waste your money. Thumbs up for the game itself, thumbs down for the misleading labeling of supported systems.

    Great game with a simple concept, I played this years ago and just loved the gameplay then, and I still love the gameplay now. It's easy to just pass the time or to tell yourself that you'll stop when you finish a level, nope, it's a game that'll keep you on your feet

    TAKE IT, no regret!
    I could say old but gold, but it's a game that never age, when i tried it at first i was very surprised, it's nice and challenging, maybe it can look like a "Bubble Bobble's" game, but it does have its own way to be awesome. the design and the musics are very entertaining and when you are close to defeat you can't stop to try until the end to save the match. try it !!!

    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.
