Zuma Links with Facebook

PopCap Games today announced the launch of a new, social media aspect to its popular action/puzzle game Zuma.  Zuma Web Connect allows users to not only play the game but to compare scores with friends on Facebook.  Seattle-based Popcap has just finished a six-month trial of a similar program for Bejeweled, their most popular game.  According to the release, around five million monthly users were on Bejeweled Blitz for Facebook.   Since 2003, over 225 million copies of Zuma have been downloaded from the internet and about five billion hours have been spent playing it overall. Those interested in trying Zuma can find it here.
