The Microsoft & WUGNET Shareware Pick of the Week for Windows

Each new application selected for this award is exhaustively reviewed and less than five percent make the cut. It is our intent to showcase only the very "best-of-the-best" applications.

Control the stone frog idol of the ancient Zuma in this thrilling action puzzler. Fire balls to make sets of three, but don't let them reach the golden skull or you're history. Zuma Deluxe is the latest arcade game release from PopCap, who was responsible for one of the most popular Windows games of all time, Bejeweled. Test your abilities in this thrilling action puzzler by controlling the stone frog idol of the ancient Zuma. This awesome arcade game blends an ease of play with unsurpassed animation, game play and strategy. As you progress from level to level, the game becomes more challenging. Fire off balls to make sets of three, but don't let them reach the golden skull, or you're history! Unearth the secrets of Zuma and enjoy these features:

Points are the key to winning - when you have enough points, no more balls will enter the level, leaving you to eliminate the remaining ones. Eliminating a large amount of balls at the same time, eliminating a chain of balls between two chains of the same color so that they are in turn eliminated, eliminating balls by shooting a ball through a gap, and hitting coins that occasionally appear all give you more points. If you don't have anything to do within the next day or so, give Zuma a try. However, if you're not single, have children, and/or have an important job, stay away, because it will probably keep you away from those things for a while.
