I've been playing the original Zuma on and off over the years, and I still love it. I've tried various similar games during that time, but none had any of the draw that Zuma had, which was the best game of its type - even better than the very first game in this genre it was copying: ActionLoop.

I've almost run out of my trial time just now with Zuma's Revenge, and I'm loving it! I'll definitely be buying this one today. Popcap has done another commendable job, incorporating a few ideas from some of the other games, but adding greater polish and care to their game. The boss fights are certainly quite fun, even if they're not particularly difficult.

I also noticed it's the first Popcap game that's displayed in widescreen format. Looks pretty good in fullscreen mode. Unfortunately, as was the case with Plants vs Zombies it's only compatible with Intel Macs. Sorry, PPC folks.

I'm sure most of us will get over it. (At least I will.) Besides, we'll upgrade some day.

I've tried the demo, the game is fun, smooth and the updated graphics is great!

Just finally finished the main adventure mode two days ago. It was getting kind of tough there at the end, and it took me a good few tries to get to the last boss with my last life, which I almost lost at times. Very creative though. Good fun.

Now I've got Iron Frog and Heroic Frog to mess with. Yikes! The former is a series of ten challenging stages and you're given only one life. Heroic Frog is a considerably tougher version of the adventure mode. And there are plenty of single stage challenges to complete. There's definitely a heck of lot of playtime to be gotten out of this game.

Yup. Zuma's still the best of its kind. :)
