PBM is een erg leuk spel. Een beetje van het kaliber Tetris, en dus enorm verslavend. Het verschilt weinig van de eerder genoemde varianten, maar als de Neo Geo Pocket je eerste spelcomputer is, dan mag deze game niet in je collectie ontbreken!
Portable Review
Then there’s replay. On the surface, this game seems to have a lot going for it: it’s a well-made port of a classic puzzle game, it has a variety of game mode – each of which offers a unique take on the engine, and it has both lasting power and casual potential. Of course, as time marches on, so does progress. Newer incarnations of BAM have been released on portables, with additional game modes – BAM Ghost on the PSP comes quickly to mind. Still, for the time, this was definitely the best handheld port Taito’s prominent puzzler ever received.

Graphiquement en tout point fidèle à la version originale en arcade (eh oui !), cette version NGPC ne souffre en fait que d’une chose : on ne distingue pas très bien certaines couleurs des autres ! Même sur les consoles noir et blanc, l’utilisation de motifs n’est pas aussi gênante que sur Game Boy, grâce à la taille relativement conséquente de l’écran. Sans oublier une maniabilité quasi parfaite grâce au minijoystick. Indéniablement, la meilleure version sur toutes consoles portatives confondues !

The bottom line is that if you like Bust-A-Move (and you actually own a Neo-Geo Pocket Color), it's a decent investment, provided you don't mind the obvious downgrade in visuals, audio, and to an extent, gameplay, given the smaller screen. It's not terribly inaccurate, however; I found that it played true to its more grandiose big-screen counterparts, so it's at least faithful. There are indeed more attractive portable Bust-A-Move options at your fingertips, but if the Neo-Geo Pocket Color is your only option, then go ahead and bust that move.
