Zuma is one of the most popular mini games that has ever been released. Everybody I know including grandparents, workmates and kids have been one way or another acquainted with this game. The premise is quite simple and maybe that’s why this game has become so addictive to everybody curious enough to try it.

The basic idea is that you get a chain of gems of different colors. The player will be then be able to shoot a gem of a particular color into the chain. To make gems disappear you need to attach the shooting gem to at least two of the same color. Why do you need to make gems disappear?

In order to prevent them from advancing to the finish line, of course. Even if plain old Zuma is not available for Windows 8, Windows 10 or Windows RT, users of Microsoft’s new operating system can still find some satisfying replacements.
