Description

One day, Dunk, the magic magician of Bubble World, releases a spell that transports eight characters from their home worlds to Bubble World. Now it is the player's turn to bring them back home!

Bust-A-Move '99 is an enhanced version of Bust-A-Move 3. The goal remains the same: try to remove all the bubbles in each stage by connecting three or more of the same color.

Five playing modes are available:
  • Arcade mode: the original Bust-A-Move 3.
  • Challenge mode: in this mode the player's performance is evaluated and the game adapts to it.
  • Win Contest mode: challenge all eight characters.
  • Collection mode: a collection of levels created by Bust-A-Move players. Each round carries the designer's name.
  • Edit mode: players can create and play their own puzzles.
The Nintendo 64 version also includes two- and four-player modes.
