  • Summary: [Xbox Live Arcade] Discover the ancient secrets of Zuma Deluxe! Deep in the jungle lie hidden temples bursting with traps and trickery. It will take a quick hand and a sharp eye to unlock their treasures. Explore more than 20 realms in Adventure mode and put your skills to the test in the Gauntlet. Fire magical balls from the stone frog idol to make color matches, then collect coins and powerups to clear the path. But watch out! If the stream of spheres reaches the golden skull, it'll be the end for you! [Xbox.com] Expand

  1. 800 points seems a bit much for a puzzle game, but when it's one as unique, clever and original (hey, we're not in Japan, we don't know what a Puzzloop is!) as Zuma Deluxe then it's very much worth it.
  2. For roughly about $10, this is a no-brainer for puzzle gamers.
  3. It will delight and challenge both young and old alike with its bright colors, enchanting music, and addictive gameplay.
  4. It's a bit of a bummer that Zuma is single-player-only: I would've loved to go head-to-head with a buddy over Xbox Live. But the game still packs plenty of thrills into a tiny package.
  5. Zuma Deluxe is a enjoyable and hearty title, and the perfect time killer.
  6. The stages get progressively more challenging as more-complex layouts and additional ball colors are introduced, and while the underlying gameplay really doesn't change much, it's still an engaging way to pass the time.
  7. Sooner or later you're going to be angered by options you can see but can't actually play. [Issue#23, p.97]

    This is a great game. It is very challenging but worth playing none the less. It is one of those games that once you pick it up you can't put it down. This is much better than Luxor 2 which is a crap knock off of this. If you like puzzle games or something with a challenge I highly reccomend this title. Expand
