Addictive As All Get Out!

Um, I think I forgot to eat yesterday because I was totally consumed by shooting and exploding these little colored marbles. If you are a destructive nut like me, this one very satisfying game. Better than the web version by far --more super cool power ups, great sound effects, many new modes, bonus rounds, you earn "blessings" that improve you're game, and it lasts forever! Re-playability could last for years as you make it harder and faster! After you get used to the touchy marble shooter you will have precision accuracy shooting marbles with just a quick upwards flick of your stylus. You can switch your current marble with the next up by moving the stylus downwards. Just don't pick up the stylus off the screen until you're ready to shoot. Fun Fun fun, just what a game should be!

Kept this game longer then any game so far. I would start playing & realize that 3 hours had went by.
The only reason I sent it back was due tothe fact I was totally addicted to it.
Lot of levels lots of fun.

With an Egyptian storyline theme this games is much like Zuma online where you have to fire colored balls at the snakes slithering around the grid and destroy them before they reach the target. Several types of powerups, most of which appeared so fast I couldn't make the best use of them, help you. The one drawback I found in this game is that the spot you have to click to change the ball color is so close to the firing mechanism spot that often it fired a ball when I only wanted to change color, thus complicating my completion of the task. I understand that the small screen doesn't allow much room but I really wish they had given that feature a couple more milimeters. Good game, you can keep playing and will remain interested over the long haul.
