Frogzapoppin': Zuma’s Revenge Free On Origin


Zuma’s Revenge [official site] may be a lesser sequel to PopCap’s fine ball-blasting action-puzzler Zuma (it’s essentially a colourful Resident Evil 4 without player movement, yeah?), but it’s still some pretty fun froggy action. If you have an Origin account (and probably if you don’t too), it’s perhaps worth downloading for free as the latest freebie in the scheme EA chose not to call “Ahhh g’wan, install Origin, it’s really nice, honest.”

If you’re boycotting EA or Origin and want to rant and rave about that towards me, please imagine doing that to my face in a pub and the look I’d have as I poured your own pint over your head.

Humble Weekly Sale Offers PopCap Games For Charity

Very excellent.

This week’s Humble Weekly sale is a PopCap bundle, but with an added twist: EA are giving 100% of their cut to charity. Two charities, in fact, between which you can choose your split: the V Foundation for Cancer Research, and The Melanoma Research Alliance which specifically fights skin cancer.

Pay more than $1 and you’ll get a copy of Peggle (download size: one Peggle), zen-like match three puzzler Bejeweled 3, word puzzler Bookworm Deluxe, and two other games. Pay more than $6 and you’ll also get Plants vs. Zombies, Zuma’s Revenge and Peggle Nights. You’ll even get Origin and Steam keys for each one.

Zuma’s Revenge Demo, Release

Zuma’s Revenge, the sequel to PopCap’s original ball-blasting puzzle game, has now been released for $20. You can judge whether it’s worth such an outlay of cash by playing the 100mb demo, which can be found over at the official site. The new game features new modes, power-ups and such, but it’s very much in line with the original, and perhaps not the finest hour for our favourite puzzle gaming company.

PopCap Unveils Zuma’s Revenge


PopCap have just released the chains holding us back from letting you know they’ve a new game on the way. A follow up to Zuma, called Zuma’s Revenge, it’s a reinvention of the frog-spitting ball-matching puzzler that PopCap say has lots of new bits and bobs in fancy new graphics. New modes, new mechanics and new power-ups. Possibly new contention from Puzzloop fans. The original sold an incredible 17 million, which by our calculations means everyone at PopCap is carried to work on golden thrones, where they spend their days playing real-life games of Bejeweled with real-life jewels, which they then stuff down their pants while laughing. Video and full press release for the new game below.
