In summation, then, this is a title no-one should let slip by. You need to play Bust A Move at least once in your life. And if the Western version is too tough for you, grab a hold of the Japanese version, where some of the levels have been dumbed-down and simplified. And by the way, don't let the looks fool you - the most complex-looking levels are often the easiest to beat…

It'll get confusing once the background screens get more colorful and start moving around, too. But it all adds to the challenge of this game. The backgrounds grow progressively more interesting. Big bubbles that move across the screen and dark, creepy clouds. It's all quite graphically pleasing.
Programme dieses Genres strotzen für gewöhnlich nicht vor atemberaubender Grafik und megastarkem Sound. Dennoch weiß die technische Seite Puzzle Bobbles durchweg zu gefallen. Die Grafik ist detailreich und bietet lustige Animationen. Der Sound — im typischen Bubble-Bobble-Stile - paßt wunderbar zum Drumherum. Das Größte jedoch ist der Spielspaß; Egal ob allein oder mit einem Freund, Puzzle Bobble bietet nicht enden wollenden Spielspaß und ist eines der faszinierendsten Programme seiner Art. Ein Muß — nicht nur für Genre-Fans!

Bust-A-Moe is a thoroughly enjoyable and incredibly addictive puzzle game that relies on reflexes and timing. It takes a while to get used to the ricochet effect, but once that's down, it's solid gameplay. The Two-player Mode really shines (especially where one player can be handicapped) and the one-player game is also a challenge. This is a game that relies more on solid play than flashy graphics and effects. (The Bubble Bobble characters at the bottom are adorable).
Honestly, though, the only real challenge I found was going for the record, otherwise, the game gets old pretty fast.
If you're really into puzzlers, you might want to give Bust-A-Move a rental test drive. Better yet, dust off your NES and take Bubby and Bobby through some Bubble Bobble, a game with the durability that this one's missing.
