My mom and I ran across this game years ago online. We used to play it on AOL Games and MSN Games all the time. We recently found it at Walmart for $9.99 so of course we bought it. Zuma a very addicting puzzle game. Each level has a different theme (mud, water, stone, ect...). There is a little frog in the middle of the screen and a path that goes in different designs around the frog. A train of colored balls roll on the track and the frog has to shoot colored balls out of his mouth to match the balls on the train. When you get 3 or more of the same colored balls on the train they disappear. the more balls you get to disappear the fast your "Zuma" bar fills at the top of the screen. You can also hit coins with the alls from your frog to make the Zuma ar fill faster. After the Zuma ar is filled no more balls roll onto the screen and when you get the remaining balls gone off the train the level is over and you move onto the next level whish is a different design and lay out.
There are also power ups you can get during game play. Certain balls have special powers to slow down the train, blow up many balls in the area that you hit, a light to show you where your frog is aiming, ect... These little special balls help out in clearing your screen faster and ending the level faster. You can get a time bonus added to your score if you clear the level in a specific amount of time.
This game is very fun and my mom and I tend to play it often when we are on the computer. It's fun for all ages as well and you can make it into a good learning experiance for younger children learning their colors.
