PopCap Games have today announced that Zuma’s Revenge, the sequel to the popular Zuma, will be available next month.
Zuma’s Revenge builds on the success of the original with new game mechanics, new modes and new power-ups. The game will be available on September 15th through PopCap.com and other gaming portals.
â€œThe original Zuma has millions of fans around the world,â€ said Jason Kapalka, co-founder and Creative Director at PopCap, â€œso there was a lot of pressure when doing the sequel to really deliver something theyâ€™d love, without wrecking the classic Zuma gameplay. Zumaâ€™s Revenge! adds a ton of variety to the mix, with over 60 new maps, all new power-up balls like the Laser Frog and Lightning Color Nuke, and a half dozen custom â€˜boss battlesâ€™ against giant, evil tiki spirits. Plus weâ€™ve added several new modes, including a speedy â€˜blitzâ€™-style challenge game and the fearsome Iron Frog gauntlet for the most elite players.â€
In Zuma the player takes the role of a fearless ball-shooting frog, exploring ancient temples and ruins. By firing colored spheres into an advancing chain of balls to make matches of three or more, the frog blasts his way through a series of arcade challenges. The sequel brings the player to an all-new setting, the Polynesian paradise of Zhaka Mu, and ups the ante with nearly triple the screen resolution of the original game, cool 3-D particle effects, and support for widescreen monitors. A full list of new features in Zumaâ€™s Revenge! will be available at launch.
