Perhaps it's unfair to compete against other puzzle arcade games with such a classic title, but Taito haven't compromised Puzzle Bobble for the iPhone and have even opted to include two control schemes unique to this game. A highly recommended addition to your classic arcade collection.
Overall, Bust-A-Move is a serious release with lots of fun and replay-ability. Anyone who’s ever played the game before will really love this iPhone version of Bust-A-Move. The price is a little steep for casual fans, but if you’re into the game, buy it. You won’t be disappointed. Bust-A-Move will be one of those iPhone games that you will have a really hard time deleting.
The game is perfect for a casual game or two while you are waiting for something more important. I would definitely recommend grabbing it. It is well put together and a ton of fun to play. Check it out and have fun playing your friends via bluetooth as well.

Bust-A-Move is a good representation of a timeless puzzle game. It may not be packed full of new extras or innovations, but the package here will likely satisfy fans of the franchise hoping for a quality version for their iPhone.
You have a lot of Bust-a-Move options on the iPhone now. In addition to the real deal here, Snood just came out and Gameloft's Bubble Bash is a well produced clone that's just 99 cents right now. If you have a personal history with Taito's classic puzzler, then buying the original is going to tempt even if the controls are not 100% perfect. But if brand means zero to you, you will not miss out if you try an alternative. Some of them even have more features than Bust-a-Move, too.
Gamers who miss the '90s will be glad to pocket these puzzles, but we had to ding Bust-a-Move for its long load times and semifrequent crashes at the menu screen.

A slightly tarnished first attempt for Taito's match-three king, Bust-a-Move remains playable without quite coming with the class fans have come to expect.
