I've gotten to the 8th level but that's it. I cannot get to the 9th. I've even gotten to 8-7 once (of course it was on my last life). I think this game is based on luck of the draw mostly. There is some strategy behind it but luck is definitely a component.

Hey guys,

my wife did 6-5 and we though we will have cleared stage until we find out that there is 6-6.

So far we haven't reached 6-6 again.

I am just starting up on Zuma and I used to play A LOT back when it was a web game on the PC. My one word of advice is:

"Don't just clear. Build"

In other words if you see two yellow balls DON'T just shoot your yellow ball at it, build on the other side of another ball and then clear the blockage. What this does other than just giving you more points (leading to a ZUMA where it rewinds a bit), but you will notice that the more collisions that take place in a combo the more the chain moves back.

After a while of playing you get "in the zone" where you can spot combos quickly just by scanning the board. I need to get back "in the zone" because it sounds like the achieves are a pain in the butt

Feonyx

PS. After I finish off the SKATE achieves (because they are turning off MP soon) I'm gonna work on this.

I think luck does play a part, but also I just really suck.

It's not just you... I struggled with Stage 5, and on Stage 6, within about 20 seconds, I'd be close to losing a live. I just passed Stage 6 now (just), and I'm really dreading Stage 7.

It's kind of reassuring to see others failing at this game! I thought I was the bomb when it was only on PC! The arcade version makes me feel like a complete noob.
