Zuma's Revenge for Mac
PopCap Games has announced Zuma's Revenge, a sequel to the original arcade-style ball-blasting Zuma game. The latest installment adds over 60 new maps, additional game modes, and a variety new power-up balls such as Laser Frog and Lightning Color Nuke. Some of the new modes include a Speedy blitz-style challenge game, along with the Iron Frog gauntlet for experienced players. Zuma's Revenge also increases the challenge by incorporating six different custom boss battles where players go against giant, evil tiki spirits.
The new game brings players to the Polynesian paradise of Zhaka Mu, where they take control of a ball-shooting frog as they explore ancient temples and ruins. While in the ruins players fire colored spheres into a chain of balls, in an attempt to match three or more colors and shorten the advancing line. Zuma's Revenge also adds support for higher resolutions than previously available, and the ability to work with widescreen monitors.
Zuma's Revenge is planned for release on September 15th for the Mac and PC, and can be downloaded from the company's website or purchased from supporting retail stores for $20. In the meantime PopCap Games is offering a video sneak-peak, screen shots, and other game information on their website.
