Zuma is a really addictive game.
You control a stone frog idol. You need to clear the balls before they reach the skull, throwing the balls with the same colour. When you get a row of three or more balls with the same colour, they disappear from the screen.
The levels become more challenging as you play. You can throw balls at special items, gaining points for that. You can change the colour of the ball to be thrown. Some balls are marked with special symbols, when you hit them you can get special actions, like bombs, going backwards, getting an aiming device, and so on. You can get even more points throwing balls between gaps.
You can play in two modes (Adventure or Gauntlet), each of them having 13 temples to complete.
The music is astounding, the graphics are very attractive and fast, even on slow computers. If you have a fast video card, the balls improve their movement and appearance. The special effects are very good. All these features allow you to feel that you´re really in an ancient mayan temple.
