The object of Zuma is to eliminate all the balls rolling onscreen before they reach the skull. When a ball reaches the skull, you will lose one of your lives, and when all your lives are gone, it’s game over!
How do you eliminate balls? Easy! When there is a group of 3 or more balls of the same color touching, they explode! Practice your aim to make sets quickly and efficiently.
As the game gets harder, it’s important to remember which scoring tactics are the most rewarding and efficient. Shooting coins is always the best way to get points. It takes the least amount of time and has the highest yield.
There is a trick to shooting coins, as they always lie behind balls on the curve. It’s safe to say that a coin positioned behind two lines on the curve isn’t worth working on. Opportunities to hit these coins usually present themselves rather randomly.
The single most important reason to collect as many points as possible is obtaining extra lives. An extra life is earned at 50,000 points. A good way to gather points is with speed. The faster you clear a level, the better chance you have of receiving a bonus.
Each level has a pre-determined “Ace” time. Beating this time can bring in a bonus as high as 25,000 points. The best way to finish quickly is to garner as many points as possible as quickly as possible.
Usually a combination of shooting gems, gaps, and chains is the best method. If the board is a double curve, take the chain bonus as far as possible while hitting any gems you can, while also paying attention to any gaps you create.
Explore all the temples if you’re good, you all rack up huge combos and special bonuses that’ll help you on your way. But think fast and aim smart, or you’ll be history in this action-packed puzzle challenge.
Each temple is divided into three stages, and each stage is divided into several levels. When you complete an entire stage, your progress in the game is saved.
Next time you play, you can skip ahead to the next stage you were working on. You can still go back and play earlier stages if you like, by clicking on the respective gateways in the Adventure screen.
Gauntlet mode is for more experienced Zuma players. You must unlock levels in Adventure mode in order to play them in Gauntlet mode. Now your challenge is to work your way up the ranks from Rabbit to Sun God, earning a Sun Gem for each temple.
Create Your Profile:
When you first launch Zuma, you will be asked for your name. Your progress and high scores will be saved when you quit. If there are several people playing on one computer, you will want to create separate profiles for each.
To do this, click on the link at the top of the screen that reads, “If this is not you, click here.” A dialog will appear allowing you to select another identity, or create a new one.
