So, over the last few weeks, I've been massively addicted to the webgame Zuma. It's a puzzle/reflex game in the genre of Tetris; you're trying to insert balls into a curving line in such a way as to eliminate balls by generating sets of three.

I finally decided to download the deluxe version, planning to play for a while, then possibly buy it.

I had a really great game. I was unlocking new levels, I managed to get four extra lives without losing one--a really excellent performance.

And then, in the middle of my game, it suddenly said, "Your trial period is up. You must pay before you can play any more." Argh!

For a double Argh!, the game costs $24.95 to unlock. I'd been expecting $10 or so, and I'd figured that at that price, I would probably go ahead and buy it. At $25, though, I have to waffle some more.

I am quite vexed.
