The gameplay is solid, with good control, decent graphics, and some cool 3D effects, but the uncreative Puzzle Mode puzzles get pretty boring, and the only visible changes are the spinning planets in the background for each world. This makes for a repetitive and dreary longplay experience when compared to previous titles in the series, where music, levels, characters, and even pointers completely change.
The thing I hate most about this game is how dumbed-down it is. The pointer's training line (that usually appears for the first level in other games) is always on, and CANNOT BE TURNED OFF! This pretty much eliminates any strategy and guesswork to the point of just mindlessly shooting bubbles. I never died while playing this game. It even has a feature that pauses time when you dump a significant portion of the puzzle, allowing you to clear out the rest of the board in a matter of seconds. There's also no shot clock, destroying any sense of fun urgency that previous titles have supplied.
Do yourself a favor and check out Space Bust-A-Move for the DS instead; it's one of the best and most fulfilling Bust-A-Moves.
In Puzzle Mode, you will have to traverse through several worlds in order to rescue your fellow friends by unlocking keys. If you manage to get all of the keys, you will receive a rapid-spin power-up to help you defeat each boss (just hold down the A button to throw bombs until the boss is finally eliminated).
As usual, the object of the game is to eliminate 3 of the same colored bubbles. One of the additions to the Bust-A-Move series is a Special Gauge (seen on the right side of the screen). When it fills up to Level 1, you can press the X button to use a Spark Bubble (this will change the bubble color), Wild Bubble at Level 2 (it can be treated as ANY colored bubble), or Laser Bubble at Level 3 (this is the best power-up; it lets you virtually eliminate an entire left or right side of bubbles!). I prefer to wait until Level 3 to use the Laser Bubble because it's the most effective.
Challenge Mode lets you burst bubbles within a 100-sec or 300-sec time limit. You will put to use some Gimmick Bubbles, which consist of either Bomb Bubbles, Rescue Bubbles (it moves the rows of bubbles further up the screen), Bonus Bubbles (allows you to score massive points), Side Bubbles (moves the bubbles to the side of the screen), or Rainbow Bubbles.
This might not seem like the pivotal Bust-A-Move installment to some casual players, but it's still worth a shot.
This is itself would not be unforgivable, even if it were something as lazy as Bust A Move 2 on the 3ds (because hey, Bust A Move 2 was an awesome game). But somehow, a full priced game released in 2011 has far, far less features, a single player that is a fraction of the length, pointless gameplay mechanics that were clearly not tested (A Lv3 super attack which is practically press button to win level), the complete removal of VS Cpu, NO MULTIPLAYER OF ANY KIND and puzzles that do not compare to an old Playstation 1 game released in 1996. Oh and Boss fights being reduced solely to a bonus round where you spam bubbles at a moving target, and if you mess up, the round is cleared but you have to go through all 10 repetitive and unchanging stages to try the fight again.
What. The. Hell?! This is like a new Madden being released with half the teams missing, no VS and only the most boring single player mode (and not the one that would give the game life span beyond a few hours) available, and a bunch of beta test mechanics and gimmicks that with even 5 minutes of play you would see do not work.
Their is also a superior version of Puzzle Bubble/Bust a Move on the ds, making this game COMPLETELY REDUNDANT. The DS game has several times as many stages and puzzles in this game, each one better balanced and more enjoyable than the ones in this game, vs computour, ACTUALLY MULTIPLAYER and will likely cost less than this game. The only thing you miss is the pointless 3d and press X to clear level game mechanic. THATS IT. This game does NOTHING better than much older, cheaper and more complete games.Read more ›

This game is challenging and a lot of fun. I feel it is the best Bust-A-Move game ever produced, and it is one I will never get tired of playing.Published 6 months ago by Jim Dunaway
This is a no frills edition of Bust-A-Move. There's plenty of stages so I'd say there's enough gameplay here, there's just not much else to it. Read morePublished 10 months ago by mjk280
