Pop Cap games are truly a mixed bag. On one hand, you could get lucky with Plants Vs. Zombies or Peggle. But, on the other, you could be playing Zuma's Revenge. Before continuing, I would like to note that this review is coming from solely playing the adventure mode. Zuma's Revenge's adventure mode has you playing as a frog on an island, making your way through on your adventure.
The gameplay seems to be simple, Zuma having a color ball and having to match three or more of the same color of ball on the track before the balls reach a certain point to which you have to restart the round. On paper, this seems quite simple but the game needs polish as it becomes frustrating when the game solely relies on luck to win the round. The music to the game is simple but, unfortunately, lacking. The same song always plays, allowing for no diversity and not giving the player any reason to keep listening.
In adventure mode, the frog most fight bosses but it doesn't feel like there are any at all. For the most part, the bosses are simple, the only boss which is noticable is the last one because of it's three-stage gauntlet.
To wrap up, Zuma's Revenge seems to be attempting to ride on the success of Peggle, a game which came out two years prior. However, where Peggle is both skill intensive and luck intensive, Zuma's Revenge simply relies on luck to get through. I did put in almost eight hours playing this game but that wasn't because I was having fun, that's because luck wasn't on my side. When the right set-up and power-ups came up, I was able to finally get past a stage that troubled me, no skill involved. If you have the money and would like to play a mindless game, buy Peggle instead.
