Zuma Demo Impressions

Just rolls off the tongue doesn't it?

Just rolls off the tongue doesn't it?

PopCap games has been a supplier of many casual game classics over the years.  Recently they have brought Zuma over to the Playstation 3, and along with it, a demo.  So how does Zuma play on the Playstation 3?  One word, Addicting.

Zuma is a simple game, you launch colored balls at a long line of balls in order to prevent them from reaching their goal.  While the concept is simple, it is still a really engaging game .  The demo spans the entire first stage, meaning five levels.

For those who don’t know how to play, you take control of a rotating statue thing in the middle of the level.  You spin it around shooting colored balls at a line of balls in order to match 3 or more together to destroy them.  The level is over once all the balls are destroyed or when the line hits a skull in the center of the map.  As the levels progressed the lines became more extravagant and harder to destroy.

I feel almost disappointed with myself with how extraordinarily short these impressions are, there just isn’t a lot to say.  There is a free version of Zuma online at the official website, with the same gameplay, however the production values do not match the downloadable versions, and there is also no save system, meaning you’d always have to play from the start.

Argh this is such a short post I’m almost ashamed to publish it, however I really enjoyed the demo to Zuma.  The game is fun and addicting and the demo really showcases this.  The demo left a good impression on me (No pun intended).
